* As of chapter 7, it's made clear that Duane's soul is housed in the khert at night, not in a pymaric, and as of chapter 10 it seems like his tether is connected directly to his body. Whatever the amulet does, it doesn't seem to have anything to do with Duane's soul.




to:

* As of chapter 11, Quigley has survived the Red Berry Boys arc. His future survivability is still up in the air, of course.




to:

*** As of [[http://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch11/ch11_90.html the end of chapter 11,]] Murkoph's exploits took place after Ssaelism was founded. Unless he's ageless and has wandered Kassylne for centuries, he can't be the basis for Ssael.

* [[http://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch11/ch11_90.html Murkoph was around before Duane's reanimation.]]

[[WMG: Murkoph is Ssael. Lady Illganyag Ilganyag is Issa]]



But what of Issa? She was only briefly mentioned in "Songs of Ssael", possibly as Ssael's mortal lover. However, there has also been some evidence (and some Ssaelit even believe this) that Ssael fell in love with Sister Tirna and her defiance of her siblings and spared her life. Jilted, Issa became this heartbroken amalgamation of memories, waiting for the day that Ssael will break free from his madness and return to her. Illganyag herself even says that she has been "wronged" and is "in wait of her love".

love".
* {{Jossed}}. Ilganyag has "[[http://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch10/ch10_70.html watched [this] world since its inception]]", so she couldn't have been a human originally. Ssael was quite recent in the grand scheme of things, remember.



In chapter 10 Delicieu says Bastion is responsible for all of "this" -- the most obvious conclusion is the silver monster, but that seems to be Delicieu's creation. The other part of the plan was to smuggle Duane into Alderode, and we now have confirmation that Bastion was responsible for Duane's creation. That sounded sinister at first, but now... Bastion doesn't actually seem like a bad guy. Maybe he underestimated how badly Duane would be messed up by the events... or maybe Lemuel was supposed to take him back to the Adeliers, but betrayed Bastion for his own purposes. It's possible that Duane fleeing Alderode was not planned. Bastion could be naive enough that he really thinks dragging Duane to Leysa's doorstep and being all "Look I resurrected your husband isn't this great??? :D :D :D" would fix everything.

[[WMG:Ssael never walked the khert. He was an ordinary man who dissolved when he died like everyone else.]]
Lady Ilganyag seems to have great contempt for Ssael, [[http://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch10/ch10_68.html dismissing him as a "paper god" when revealing herself to Duane for the first time.]] And now as of the end of chapter 11, [[http://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch11/ch11_92.html she repeats the phrase with some additional information:]] "Again and again [humans] see gods in themselves and capture them on paper." Ilganyag has been around since the creation of the world, so she'd know better than anyone whether Ssael really ascended to godhood... but she doesn't seem very impressed by him, and that last line implies she's seen something similar happen over and over throughout the ages.

As a corollary to this, it's possible that not even the Gefendur gods are real, or if they are, that the scriptures are wildly inaccurate.

* Jossed; it turns out Bastion was responsible.

** It's possible that the legend of Ssael is based on (heavily distorted) stories of Murkoph's exploits, and Murkoph either doesn't know or doesn't care about this. Alternatively, he may have lost his memory.

* Confirmed in [[http://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch11/ch11_47.html chapter 11, page 47.]] Bastion is directly responsible for the reanimation.

[[WMG: Murkoph is Ssael. Lady Illganyag is Issa]]
Imagine this: instead of becoming this bleeding-heart crusader of justice when hearing of all of humanity's troubles, [[GoMadFromTheRevelation Ssael goes mad]]. Completely, entirely, murderously mad. [[AxeCrazy Mad enough to go murder some gods.]]
There's been some strong evidence that Murk is Ssael in the past, namely the fact that they both seem to be sporting the same scars, which [[WordOfGod according to the author]] are from when Ssael was mortally slain.

But what of Issa? She was only briefly mentioned in "Songs of Ssael", possibly as Ssael's mortal lover. However, there has also been some evidence (and some Ssaelit even believe this) that Ssael fell in love with Sister Tirna and her defiance of her siblings and spared her life.

[[WMG:Sette is a human child infused with senet beast properties, similarly to how Vienne used the field spreader to spread First Material properties.]]
This would explain why she's so human-like despite having senet beast properties.

[[WMG:Sette is Mikaila.]]
Mikaila didn't die; she was captured, had her memories wiped, and was subjected to some kind of experiment that changed her hair color and gave her her [[TheAgeless special]] [[TheNoseKnows properties]].

[[WMG:Murkoph is an infection of Duane's prymarics.]]
It's pretty well-known that Duane's eyes and larynx are both prymaric, replacing the bits he lost in the fight that killed him. However, it comes to light that pymarics will eventually be haunted with ghosts [[http://unsoundedcomic.tumblr.com/post/113994295045/sorry-if-this-has-already-been-answered-but-what]] from the khert, which is a common problem with plods.
What if Murkoph who keeps appearing out of nowhere, consistently stalking our heroes, is such a haunting or infection, following Duane wherever he goes.

[[WMG: Duane dies in the end.]]
For certain, this time. It will be very much a {{Bittersweet Ending}}, Lysa and Lemuel lose him for good, but he's at peace and with Mikaila at last.




** While its not a stretch to say a god can manipulate the khert its interesting to see Lady Ilganyag interact with [[http://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch10/ch10_70.html the khert]].

* Ghosts that infect pymarics travel outside the khert, though. If Murkoph's still trapped in the khert, he's not inhabiting any pymaric. It's still possible that he's a more-coherent-than-usual ghost, maybe even connected to Duane's creation somehow.
