Hi, I'm new to the Robin Hobb's work and am just finishing off Assassin's Quest. The one thing I can't figure out about the story is why Fitz is the catalyst. Surely it can't be just because he's a bastard because if that was the defining aspect of a catalyst (a bastard in the Farseer blood line) then Chade could also be a catalyst. Clarification on this would be helpful Love the books btw.
