    I'll second that.  At least it seems odd.
    And it doesn't seem likely that Thecla would have to dodge the 
mounts of her own father's guard.  It would seem more likely that 
they're another exultant's or the Autarch's.
    Do you happen to remember any mention of how old Thecla was when she 
was brought to the House Absolute?
    And isn't it fairly certain that Ouen was Severian's father?
