Yeah, probably not going to get a definitive answer.  Some (who could they be?) think he was there all along, because, according to at least one inhumi in short sun, "we are everywhere."   
Quetzal was there long enough to have an old parent tree in the garden.

Well, I finally finished The Book of the Long Sun.  I thought it was wonderful, but I do (of course!) have a few questions.  The first is, how did Quetzal get on the Whorl?  The inhumi are natives of Green, so maybe he found some way aboard the Whorl while it was in orbit?  If so, it would seem that they were in orbit for some time, since Quetzal obviously spent several years on board.  Also, why would he try, in his last moments, to get the settlers to go to Green?  As food for other inhumi?  I haven't read The Book of the Short Sun yet, so if these inhumi-related questions are answered there, just tell me to read and find out :-)
