Question on Haldane Powers
« on: January 20, 2017, 09:11:55 am »
Steve Roti says: “Haldane powers (once manifested) seem very similar to the power held by a fully trained Deryni. In light of (1) frequent interaction between the Haldane line and fully trained Deryni and (2) certain Haldanes being partly Deryni (Kelson, Araxie and Richelle), and therefore having powers not unlike the Haldane powers (from other sources), and (3) other entire royal lines in the Eleven Kingdoms being comprised of trained Deryni, why do the Camberian Council and others (including Kelson himself) express concern over multiple Haldanes being empowered or partially empowered simultaneously?”


Katherine replies: “We must keep in mind that it’s only recently, in Conall’s time, that we’ve discovered that more than one Haldane can hold the Haldane powers simultaneously. In the years immediately after Cinhil was first empowered by Camber and his kin, either they thought that only one Haldane could hold the power at once, or they encouraged the Haldanes to believe that this was the case, so that Haldanes farther down the line of succession would not somehow acquire the powers and then challenge the legitimate heir.“Tiercel, of course, had come to the correct conclusion—that more than one Haldane could hold the Haldane powers—but his meddling also led to a worst-case scenario in which Conall did, indeed, attempt to challenge the legitimate heir: his own father, and then Kelson himself, when it emerged that Kelson was still alive. (All of which underlined the reason for the injunction against multiple empowered Haldanes in the first place.) The fact that Nigel had been partially empowered, as regent, illustrates the dawning realization, even on the part of Morgan and Duncan, that even in the uncertainty of whether Kelson was alive or dead, at least some of the Haldane powers could be bestowed on another Haldane in the direct line of succession. This is all a part of the gradually unfolding process of discovery and rediscovery occurring as the series unfolds.”
