This is straying from the subject of this thread, but I want to follow up on
what I said in my reply to the earlier iteration of this post.

Loris said that Chenille's mother, the gardener's wife, had been a virago.
Quetzal agreed and said that "She was the type he [Tussah] admired, and he
was the type she did." (EXODUS, 269) That's where Chenille got her body

If Tussah was a clone of Typhon, where did he get his penchant for viragos?
Typhon's mistress, personified on the _Whorl_ as the computer entity Kypris,
is a veritable Aphrodite, the very essence of things womanly and not in the
least a virago.
