Typhon ruled a multi-planet empire. To me the above passage suggests that Typhon installed Scylla
as the ruler of another planet and it is that place which has the polytheistic religion Viron's was
based upon. The Empire had much interstellar travel and trade so I don't see that everything on The
Whorl needed to come from Urth.
I have to wonder about Lemur's "law of nature, as concerns our race". He is more than slightly aware
of Trivigaunte. Does he consider Trivigaunte a violation of the laws of nature? Or is there perhaps
some question about which race of beings he is talking about?
