As tall as the Tiste Edur, yet so thin as to seem emaciated.  Bone-white flesh, thin and loose, a long, narrow face, seamed with a mass of wrinkles.  The eyes were pale grey, surrounding vertical pupils.

The man wore rotted, colourless silks that hid little, including the extra joints on his arms and legs, and what seemed to be a sternum horizontally hinged in the middle.  The ripple of too many ribs, a set of lesser collar bones beneath the others.  His hair – little more than wisps on a mottled pate, stirred like cobwebs.  In one lifted hand the man held a lantern in which sat a stone that burned with golden fire. (RG)


The gaunt Forkrul Assail was hunched at the shoulders, as if every proof of justice had bowed him down, left him broken.  His pallid face was a mass of wrinkles, like crushed leather.  Tortured eyes fixed on the Errant for a moment, and then the Assail turned away.  (DoD)


He had just, with a single gesture of one hand, stopped time. - Observation of Bruthen Trana - (RG)



The Father of Oponn


"He could open himself, even now, to the cries of mortals beyond counting, each and every one begging for an instant of his time, his regard. His blessing. But he'd stopped listening long ago. He'd spawned the Twins and left them to inherit the pathetic game. How could one not grow weary of that litany of prayers? Each and every desire, so heartfelt, invariably reduced to a knot of sordidness... Leave it to my Oponnai. The Twins must ever face one another, lest existence unravel. They are welcome to it." - (DoD, mmpb, p. 1076)


General References

Knuckles, whom Kilmandaros referred to as "Setch-" before being cut off, is Sechul Lath. -  (RG, TPB p. 640)


Gothos - "And then, a short while later, in the time when he rested between weavings of his ritual, he sensed someone approaching him from behind. An Elder god, come in answer to the violent rift torn between the realms. As expected. Still… which god? K’rul? Draconus? The Sister of Cold Nights? Osserc? Kilmandaros? Sechul Lath? " -  (MT, UK TPB, p.25)


"Errastas, my time is at an end."  He made a rippling gesture with his fingers.  "I leave it to the Twins."  He smiled.  "They were my finest cast." (DoD)


"Errastas walked ahead, a man convinced he knew where he was going. The worlds awaited his guiding hand, that nudge that all too often invited Kilmandaros into her swath of mindless destruction. Yet between them was Sechul Lath, Lord of Chance and Mischance. Caster of Knuckles. He could smile the mockery of mercy, or he could spit and turn away. He could shape every moment of his mother's violence. Who lives, who dies? The decision was his." - (DoD, mmpb, p.1075)
