IIRC Orlanth is regarded as Trickster (the Murderer) in certain parts of the
Lunar Empire, especially amongst the Dara Happans I would expect.

If Danfive Xaron is Orlanth's analogue in a Seven Mother/Lightbringer
comparison, as the healed/repentant murderer, perhaps the Cenobites maintain
a special asylum for the 'healing' of expecially dangerous, but potentially
useful, 'tricksters' and bringing them into the light of the Red Way.

Perhaps Blackmoor the Rabid was booked in for a spot of RnR before his
conversion? :-)
