Isabeau's Journal

 November, 12 2005

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.

Here I go again, but this one has been niggling at me for a while - I just keep forgetting to ask it: Does Hethlin's family have a similar rapport with lesser eagles and hawks as they do with the great eagles? That is, can she call them and/or see through their eyes, etc? Seems like it would be an excellent scouting ability, though you'd have to be careful about using the birds too hard - their bigger cousins probably wouldn't approve.

Actually, members of her family have been able to do that in the past, but it's a lot harder to learn. Heth probably won't be doing it anytime soon-she needs to get more experience with her rapport with the big Eagles first. And you're right about treating the little guys carefully-wouldn't want to burn their brains out or anything. There may also be more of a danger in losing oneself while in contact with an animal intelligence-I think the Eagles buffer their human companions in the contact.

Also, WHEN is Aragorn going to give Hethlin her father's Dunadan star already?

Pretty soon now, actually. Her wait is almost over.
