Over in Kate Elliott's website, she too has a discussion board, and they (those people who post over there) are coming very close to figuring out who Alain is... Alain is the only part of the story that still naggs me to this day. And because I love a good discussion and none of us knows (except for Kate herself and she is making us wait) know who Alain is, I thought this would be a good thread. So, what are all of your thoughts on who he is? Diamone? Angel? God? Child of a Saint? Which Saint if you think this. or Other? Thought of putting this thread as a poll, but I wanted this to be an ideas thread, more things to hash out and I think a poll is too restricting concerning this matter. Anyways... Your thoughts?
