A Character Who Scares Paul

Yes, you heard that right. I have found a fictional character (aside from Voldemort) who alarms Paul Graves.

The character is Rumail Deslucido from the Darkover novel, The Fall of Neskaya.

There's a scene in the opening chapters of that book in which Rumail, under the guise of assessing a boy named Coryn Leynier for a type of sickness that strikes Darkoven telepaths at puberty, does something else to him.

It involves making a midline incision in Coryn's astral body and inserting astral images of a handkerchief belonging to Coryn's mother, a strand of Coryn's hair, and a strand of Rumail's own hair, in Coryn's astral body cavity and then 'suturing' him up.

When I finished reading the scene, I thought, "Well, that was different." The little Paul in my head was whinging. "What is he doing? Why is he doing that? I do not like this at all!"

It looks to me as if Rumail is devising a way to exercise control over Coryn, but why? Judging from the chapter I'm now reading, I am about to find out.

*happy sigh* It's always fun when Paul is disturbed. :) *cackles evilly*

Little-known factoid about Paul--I based his use of legilimency on Darkover's use of the Overworld, because it makes more sense to me than the way Rowling does telepathy.

Miss you too darling and writing with you. Maybe we should do something about that!

I am around on weekends but don't tend to be on YM! though it is still on my upstairs machine.

Suse Sarah & Rich are still on here but seem to update more to Facebook/Twitter.
