I think you're confusing Pearl with Possum.



Pearl wasn't in RotCG. However, in the spirit of the original question, (this is really a DoD question, so I'll black it out)

Why does Lostara Yil look at Quick Ben in his blazing fight with the short tails and say "Pearl?" ?

]Plus Pearl was part TA -- in fact a likely descendant of Anomander Rake by way of Drift Avalii -- so if QB reminded Lostara of him somehow, that's perhaps a hint to QB's own mysterious origins.


Response to spoilers= more spoilers (sorry I brought this up--I read the MBotF all the way through, then moved over to ICE books)

EDIT: removed spoilers now that in correct forum

I don't remember ANY of that stuff about Pearl--the TA, the Rake genetics, or the Drift Avalii. That must have happened real fast. Rake and a TA !?!? What???

I seem to remember Lostara staring at QB, then saying "Pearl?" It was pretty clear from the context (IMO) that she was seeing something of Pearl in QB. Makes no sense to me, but I am intrigued that QB was perhaps acting like Pearl or at least using warrens like him. A big puzzle, but I worry it's so fleeting and obscure it will be lost. But SE has shown a strong predilection for remembering little details just. like. that.

But I disagree with the previous post that she was remembering Pearl as her one true love--she was about to show her (very strong) love for another man about 2 minutes later.

There are/were TA on Drift Avalii who were not spawn of Rake, so Pearl is not necessarily related at all to Rake.

Topper is also I think half Tiste Andii. What's up these high-ranking partial-TA Claws?
"Here is light. You will say that it is not a living entity, but you miss the point that it is more, not less. Without occupying space, it fills the universe. It nourishes everything, yet itself feeds upon destruction. We claim to control it, but does it not perhaps cultivate us as a source of food? May it not be that all wood grows so that it can be set ablaze, and that men and women are born to kindle fires?"

True, but what's the fun in that??

Was it confirmed anywhere that Topper was Pearl's father? I always suspected with the whole 1/2 and 1/4 thing but I don't think it was ever stated....
