Krait has a copy of Sinew's soul, but it's a copy of Sinew's Thomistic soul
from when Sinew was extremely young--they're more like identical twins then
like being "the same person" because Sinew's personality wasn't very
individualized at that point.

Chenille/Jahlee ought to be a little different--Jahlee would have the
personality of Chenille at an adult age, and so effectively be Chenille.
