And Sandy replied:

Guh? I thought that Hsunchen, to the Kralori, signified "a animal
that looks like a man", not "a man that tries to emulate animals",
since Hsunchen are not true People.
The reason for my question was that I thought it strange that the
inscrutable Easterners should see more similarity between the Broos
emulating raw Chaos and the Hsunchen emulating animals, than between
the Hsunchen and, say, the Aldryami, _especially_ when the Hsunchen
and Aldryami are so to say "more closely related".
I could actually form a (for me) interesting Kraloric phiosophy about
merging my mistake(?) with Sandy's latest information: the attempt to
emulate the inhuman part of themselves is what has prevented these
critters from achieveing any kind of a true mystical enlightenment
and hope of achieving whatever the name for the Kralori equivalent of
the Good Hereafter was.
