Why is the Queen Karan referred to as the Queen Kendra when they’re discussing who is on what ship?
Also, I have this weird feeling that the Shroud-Beings being not technically dead is going to affect things…
That's a mistake on my part. The names "Karan" and "Kendra" get used a lot in Chapter 5.4 (The name 'Karan' is used on both a ship and a character) and I get them mixed up occasionally. I'll have to go back and fix that.
Edit: Found and fixed the Forums version. I'm heading over to Archive of Our Own to fix the other verison now. (Done)
The Shroud-Beings are not dead, that's true, but the Shroud-Beings are permanently incapacitated. Kendra, Tantomile, and Eteka are on their own.
