I find it interesting how Latro seemed quite a bit less piteous in  
Sidon due to the fact that he was monogamous (well, polygamous, but  
in the actually matrimonial sense and not just sleeping around like a  
rake). At least during the part of the book that followed the river,  
when things were going comparatively smoothly for him.
