This section is for Literature/NightWatch.
As for why she went to the trouble of calling him, that allows her to cast a weaker (and thus less detectable) spell while also deflecting suspicion away from herself.
- I think it was clearly stated that it was Kostya who glamoured Las to go to Kazakhstan so that the suspicion would immediately fall on the latter due to his connection to the Assol case.
- Not to mention knowing the way around the wrong voice. And she was remarkably comfortable with him feeling his/her breasts/ass/groin. Then she let him go off with his girlfriend, knowing he was almost certain to let her in on the secret.
This section is for the Discworld book of the same name.
- It's also possible that he died in the original timeline (hence the grave with his name on it), but not the altered one. To avoid a paradox, the History Monks sent him to Fourecks, which had a messed up timeline anyway.
- Would that make him the "Tinhead Ned" who'd occupied the jail cell before Rincewind?
- Vetinari mentions that the fighting continues for a time after Vimes/Keel and Carcer disappear into the present (during which time he, Vetinari, kills four men). It's possible that Ned was killed during that time, or that he was injured earlier and the wound proved fatal.
- Except that sparing a cop-killer who'd threatened his family is probably the one thing Vetinari could do that would make Sam Vimes turn against him. He's not going to waste an invaluable asset like Vimes just to acquire the services of an unsteerable psychopath.
- Agreed, Moist, Jenkins, Leonard, et all are kept alive because Vetinari knows the buttons to push to keep them under control. Carcer doesn't have those buttons, like The Joker he just wants to watch the world burn. He's the sort of person that when sent on a mission to kill Colonel Condiment, would take time out to stomp on kids tea-party, slice the throat of of someone who looked at him funny, and then burn down a water-balloon factory all on the way. And not understand what he did wrong, or even there was a difference between any of those acts. Vetinari would have no use for such a man.
- Also, Moist et al. are essentially good people. Carcer is not.
- On top of the practical reasons outlined above, there's also the fact that Vetinari wears the lilac. We've seen how seriously those who were there take the rememberance of the Glorious 25th of May. Even Vetinari wouldn't be coldhearted enough to allow the man responsible for 6 of those 7 graves to walk free, and on May 25 at that.
- Also, Reacher Gilt was offered the same angels' chance as Moist, but refused to take it, insaed opting for the open door. Too bad for him that it led to a deadly drop.
- Which makes Vimes/Keel Carcer's Big Bad, naturally.
- The idea of a zombie (a discworld zombie, anyway) being weighed down by arrows doesn't seem likely. It's been established (in Reaper Man) that they can easily smash their way out of a wooden coffin and dig their way out of the ground.
- It didn't have to completely immobilize him, just hinder him enough to make him notice he'd been arrow-riddled and keel over from the shock of it.
- Vimes does note this pretty much as a fact...except for the movement part. He only 'laid down' after he consciously realized that he SHOULD be dead, having so many arrows in him.
- This might even help explain Reg's later habit of going to graveyards and trying to convince the completely dead to quit lying around: he never actually experienced an interruption in consciousness when he died himself, so assumes they're just as continuously-conscious and are simply being apathetic.
- This is literally just canon. What's your WMG here?
