Severian thought the Rajan was Malrubius (Silk and Malrubius did both
had eyesight issues), and Silk thought the Rajan was Patera Pike (IMO
the description of events of the night "Pike's Ghost" appears leaves
no other explanation).

A rather easy extrapolation on Don Dogget's "New Sun" Clones theory
provides a ready explanation for these misidentifications.
