Silk saw in his vision of Mainframe heaven. Chenille is Silk's sister
only in the sense that Tussah was both his unacknowledged foster

I'm assuming that Tussah had Typhon-clone genes and that he also had
his own stash of frozen Typhon embryos, so that he could be sure of a
strong heir. Chenille and Silk should have a genetic relationship in
I'm far from convinced that mere possession by Kypris was enough to
make Chenille into an expert knife-thrower, though it may have
increased her confidence. I think she had to have superhuman reflexes
built in. We don't see General Mint suddenly becoming an expert shot
with a needler or slug gun after her possession.
