Tavie said: I was very moved by his words at death - about how he was finally "beautiful", making me remember what he sacrificed to fly, and his self-image, and all that stuff - it made it very powerful for me. It really made me reconsider his character after years of a sort of conflicted, almost dismissive feeling about him. I was definitely moved...
I agree @Tavie. Tyldak is one of the characters that has changed and evolved the most since his first introduction.
Heather said: We can't know for sure (at least not yet). I also can't say if I think one way or the other. There wasn't enough to tell from the flashback or Windkin's behavior, at this time.
I have a feeling we're going to be seeing more flashbacks to that time period when Tyldak, Kahvi and Windkin were travel companions, so we might just get some more insight into what kind of relationship Windkin and Tyldak had.
