There are some possibilities. Maybe Blue is where Abia's 'race' is from?
I've always assumed Abia came to Urth at some point. Must have come from
And I am against the theory of Ushas as Blue, you know from our
discussions. However, there are so many resonances between the two worlds
(some of which you point out), that I think we are being directed to the
idea that what happened on Urth/Ushas happened on Blue as well. Perhaps
there was a "severian" equivelant on Blue. One of the Neighbors. And we
have the Abia analogue, just like Urth. There is more to this, which until
I finish on this read through of SS I don't want to lay out, but I think the
multi-limbed beings and what not are a clue to this.
And I can't get with the idea that Horn is a Neighbor. Doesn't make a lick
of sense to me, thematically or contextually.
