This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
The Ferret gods are Odin, Freya, and Loki
  • Since Loki is painted in a sympathetic light, that's how he gets a Cult; they feel sorry for him.
    • BHS: Not quite, but this is a very good guess! Ferret Godlore is going to be posted sometime in the next month, if all goes well. Keep reading!

Hanami will become Life's keshin
  • And N'Ktane will become Death's.
    • Alternatively, Lily will become Death's, because that little irony is too delicious to pass up.

The skunk religion is part of a Straw Feminist conspiracy
  • Everyone else worships death and time as males, except them, and they're the only race to practice gender discrimination. I call shenanigans.

The Nameless Florin didn't actually choose Rose after Aconite got The Punishment, he left in disgust
  • Seriously, I can't be the only one who found that a little hard to swallow. I figure he did too, and became the first Outcast. But that's not a "happy" ending (nor is it supportive of their religion), so he officially submitted to the central deity.

The red stuff in Faun's booze is Cadmium
  • Battery acid, as a Shout-Out to Alien Ressurection.

The "New Standard" lanuage is Latin

N'Ktane is corrupting Lady Lilly.
  • Despite all her flaws, she's still Lawful Good. This drive to have the Outcastes executed and the mind-control bracelettes, came out of left feild. N'Ktane was sent back to do a task for Death, one that she enjoyed the prospect of; subverting the most prominent and pious mortal servant of the Life Goddess while taking her revenge seems to fit the bill.
  • Someone pick up that phone, because I totally called it!

Squad 13 was a Death Squad; the Chimatsuri was a massacre that happened during the Rebellion.
  • "Chimatsuri" means "Victimization"
    • Jossed: Squad 13 was a sort of covert-ops group, formed to carry out missions impossible for the rest of the Order to complete. "Chimatsure" is actually a title meaning "bloodbath". Possibly it refers to whatever turned Drake into a sanguivore.
    • Black Ops and death squads aren't mutually exclusive. It's called "Assassination."

The "outlanders" are so different to the islanders as to be offensive to them
  • For some reason, I feel that the outlander version of fox society should be a joyless USSR-style nation.

Gen Tsurugi is a suit of Animated Armor
  • His entire body is armored except his eyes, and according to The Legend of Hayaoh, he battled the HellSerpent and Hayaoh a thousand years ago... perhaps his Evil Weapon is keeping him alive?

Drake was forced to kill Rain
  • His line in Book IV says it all: "You'd be surprised what you can live with."

  • Straight out of hell; One of a kind. Stalking his victims. Don't look behind you, Nightcrawler. Beware the beast in black, Nightcrawler. You know he's coming back...

  • Why go through the trouble to protect something no-one's going to aim for anyways? Because it'll destroy him if it takes even the slightest damage.
