    • Ryan Watt Well yes, but the trick was only ever used by the Soldier, and not that many people have seen it. They only would have been wary if they knew this was the Soldier. Also, two of the three were not very bright.

    • Ryan Watt No, he isn't, but the hype machine around him implies he is nothing short of miraculous. The queen can't wrap her head around the truth.

    When you're using words like 'child' and 'boy' I'm not sure how literal the usage always is meant. Roughly, how old are Oleg and Taree? If you can give that out.

    • Ryan Watt Biologically or chronologically? hah hah. Oleg appears to be about 17, Taree as a human appears about 12 or 13. Both are treated young because they act on the young side.
