OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.
I'm curious about that too. I guess I assumed that most of Andrahar's animosity towards Hethlin is on behalf of Imrahil -- anyone who would turn Imri down has got to be contemptible in Andrahar's book. Although he was hostile with her about letting Imrahil get injured even before Imrahil proposed.
Letting Imrahil get injured is the biggest sin you can commit in Andrahar's book. And he is probably also offended on Imrahil's behalf over the rejection. But the biggest part of Andrahar's problem with Hethlin is that she upsets what he considers the natural order of things. He is a bit of a misogynist, in that he prefers his women womanly (in the limited manner he choses to interact with them). It's probably due to the culture he was born in. He has taught Lothiriel a little bit about defending herself, but that was always with the intent that she would simply be doing what she could to protect herself until some man came along to properly defend her. Part of him considers Hethlin to be brazen and impertinent in her desire to play a man's role.
