Aw- i also liked seeing Ekuar happy that night! Re- Kahvi and Cutter.. It's NBD. Everyone's related. If you think about it, Scouter and Tyleet are cousins too. Nightfall is Scouter's cousin- because their father's were brothers. So that makes Tyleet and Scouter- what? Second cousins? Tier and Ember are similarly related- because Dewshine (Windkin's mother) is Cutter's first cousin. And, if I recall correctly- i think that Moonshade and Strongbow were originally conceived as a mother-son recognition. I could be wrong- but I think that's what the Pini's first incarnated them as. They decided against it (i know I read this somewhere) because they figured it would be too out of left field for their audience. All in all, though, the elves are pretty closely linked. I figure the point of recognition is to time it just right, and with just the right people, that the elves involved avoid the pitfalls of inbreeding. Crazy- no?
