Tammy: Well, [the Jaguar Goddess] is, sometimes. And she remains captive because she is a chaotic element (not as in Uusoae-chaotic, but as in destructive chaos), a goddess of the jungle run riot, and of destruction without redemption. Just think what Kyprioth’s married life is like! Every now and then, when he’s thinking too well of himself, someone lets her out.
Tammy: The Jaguar Goddess doesn’t get along well with anyone. Particularly not her husband.
Tammy: What if Dove has been the Chosen One all along? Prophecies are murky things and, if those of you who read Lioness Rampant will recall, things get murky the closer we get to a crossroads in time. Who is who and what is what become impossible to predict, let alone outcomes.
Tammy: Visions sent by the gods may always be hard to interpret, depending on the ability of the person who receives them. That’s a lot of power going from the mind of the god into the mind of the human. The more visions the human receives, the more overload in that human’s brain. By the time she got to that particular prophecy, the Prophet of the Chosen Promise was kinda wonky.
Not all prophets go wonky, but they are deemed wonky because they are far more accustomed to conversing with gods than with human beings. They always have one ear tuned elsewhere, and one eye.
