Notes from Jean Lorrah: These characters first appear in the short story, "Reflection of a Dream," currently out looking for a publisher. Zhag Paget, Sime, is the best shiltpron player in Norlea. At Unity he is already semi-junct and dying--he can no longer Kill, but he is too old to disjunct. This is one of those karmic situations--Tony is a Natural Donor and a match for Zhag, and of course saves his life.
