Andrew, I think you make good observations and arguments against Remora being
a straight-up Inhumu, like Quetzal.
Regarding Windcloud's statement, I think we can be pretty sure the Neighbors
weren't galloping around the Whorl in their multi-limbed original form, as seen
by Horn. So I always took Windcloud's statement as being related in someway to
the mystery regarding the Inhumi on the Whorl and how they got there.
We aren't given the details, but surely any Neighbors who got onto the Whorl did
so from Green, not Blue, meaning they were Neighbors who had already been infected.
Or intertwined (as in trees and vines).
I think we are supposed to get the sense that Neighbors are a higher order of being
than humans. And Inhumi, despite their cunning, are a lower order. So perhaps a
combination of the two is a good blend to walk among the middle ground of humanity.
