"Andrew Solovay":

Aye--but in CoP, there's nothing to imply that hyena skins *in = particular*
might be parts of Genert. A merchant finds a hyena-skin scroll, and it = turns
out to be Genertish--but as presented, the fact that it's a hyena skin = is
entirely incidental. (In the narrative, the item could just as easily = have
been a wooden spear or a silver necklace or a stone cup. It's just = presented
as "This random thingy turned out to be a piece of Genert.")

The parts are by no means all Hyaena skins. There should be no = implication of such. A Genert-part hyaena skin also need not be a = scroll. The story in CoP (page 59) also describes the piece as a patch = of Genert's skin, not a hyaena's.
Yes, the thingy happens to be a Genert piece and could be any of several = different things, as according to the original article. CoP, page 59, =
"Some fragments of that pre-temporal deity were floating about in =
various guises,...". Skin, bone, organs, hair, last meal, owned objects = such as your spear, necklace, and stone cup,
whatever. Who'd want to tell Genert what his pieces are allowed to be = made of?
