They are animistic, remember. So when they love a spirit, become it, incarnate it.

> Tada (Kinship to Vingkotling), (Morokanth dislikes
> him as a human hero? See

IMHO, Tada was incarnated by Waha (a Tadahan was incarnated by a Wahan magician during some crucial heroquesting of Praxian history) since Tada is dead but they needed him for some purpose, maybe for obtaining (becoming) Jaldon.

> Jaldon (Enemy of Youf, Tarsh and Lunar Empire?
Yep, but Jaldon was not the intended Jaldon. He appeared (storically) when Waha (a waha magician) was defeated by Pavis. The magician then (possibly) heroquested to become Tada and discovered Jaldon but was crucially tricked by Raven (the tricksterous spirit of the Praxians).

So, now, Jaldon is Tada (great leader) +Raven (desctructor and self destructor)

of course.

possibly.

> 2nd Attack -> Dragonkill? (Killed as other heroes)
> 3rd Attack -> Tarsh (allied with Colymer and

> 4th Attack (Allied with Whitebull?) against Lunars?

the order is not important, but IMO Whitebull is the intended original anti Pavis (or accepting Pavis) leader _without_ Tada (who is dead) and without Raven. Now, maybe Tada is not dead and the summoning of Whitebull (in order to overcome the loopish nature of Jaldon) implies the resurrection of Genert (Tada's father).

It makes sense to me, at least.

Ciao,
