My main reason for disbelieving a 1600 year old non-Brithini are just that:
there shouldn't be any non-Brithini (or non-Vadeli) humans from before the
Dawn around. If that were the case, I am sure it would have been mentioned
about Leonardo...

Do I have to spell out sarcasm everytime I use it?

The "perfect order" was my way to illustrate that the History chapter (which
starts with a myth older than the Esrola myths...) doesn't take too much
pains to give exact dates, or to care much whether things happened before or
after the Dawn.

My point.

For all we know, the Waertagi can have arrived at any time convenient for a
history. For my ideas of the history, it works better if the Leftarm
Islanders had found a non-theistic philosophy by the time the Lightbringer
deities return triumphantly - an impact which should have convinced even the
disillusioned Leftarmers.

I know I have no proof, but I know nobody else has, either.
