  1. Dear Chris Lester

    Without giving spoilers of what is to come, I do need a bit of an explanation of what is going on here. Why are almost all of the characters so surprised that Daniel took the androgyne curse due to the way low powered males were marginalized within the Psi Collective and how the females of any power level were glorified? (“Any population is limited by the number of fertile wombs available.”) It seems to me that Daniel can’t have been the first to find such a solution, and that the Hive had to have already considered the possibility. Even Elder Bakhtavar and Fiona seem to find that it is a clever loophole exploit, implying that nobody else in the history of the Psi Collective had hit on this idea.

  2. Somebody had to be the first to think of it. Whether Daniel was that man or not, he was the first to be desperate enough to go through with it. Keep in mind that the Psi Collective is a very young institution, less than a hundred years old, and is mostly composed of humans who never took the Curse and do not come from Cursed families.

  3. Fair enough. If the “hive” is only about 100 years old, I can see how there could be (as the new cop in “Welcome to the City”) that there is a stigma against the curse. Makes sense. Thanks.
