Really, the only kid of theirs that logic applies to is Wing. Newstar was already well along her way during the attack, and Mender was born several years after in the relative safety of the Sun Village. If the the whole 'we gotta have babies to replenish the tribe' argument really held water, the unattached Wolfriders should have been Recognizing Sun Folk right and left. Happy



Not quite. Recognition demands perfect genetic compatability, and if there were no such elves in Sorrow's End (aside from Leetah that is) Recognition just wouldn't happen. As for Mender being born several years later, it was extremely quick in the elves terms. Even in "normal" times of danger there was generally more of a gap between siblings.
