Here's a minor thing that kind of bugged me...

In SW Leoman knew that L'oric was Tiste Liosian...

However, in 7C L'oric was disguising himself as human (I specifically remember a part of the book talking about how he was able to change his appearance just like Rake could - and he went on to think about how Rake had appeared human for 200 years while he served as a bodyguard to a king).

So...I can understand how Leoman would probably recognize L'oric if he saw him in Tiste Liosian form - but it makes no sense to me how he would have been worried about meeting L'oric once he was captured by the TL army. He wouldn't have any reason to even suspect that L'oric was TL.

Thoughts? Did I miss something or forget something?

IT may not have been explicitly stated, but could be hand-waved away if you consider that Leoman had been in the company of the Queen of Dreams since Y'Ghatan and she could have easily explained who L'oric was.
Theorizing that one could poop within his own lifetime, Doctor Poopet led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top secret project, known as QUANTUM POOP. Pressured to prove his theories or lose funding, Doctor Poopet, prematurely stepped into the Poop Accelerator and vanished. He awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own bowels was made through brainwave transmissions, with Al the Poop Observer, who appeared in the form of a hologram that only Doctor Poopet could see and hear. Trapped in the past, Doctor Poopet finds himself pooping from life to life, pooping things right, that once went wrong and hoping each time, that his next poop will be the poop home.

Probably the most likely explanation

How disguised was he, i thought he still had the traits who anyone with knowledge of what a TL was, could know what he was. I just didnt think people knew what a Tiste L was

L'oric was disguising himself in HoC - the QoD mentions that he hides his Liosan blood well - but in the company of other Liosan and not trying to maintain the guise, i'm guessing it's obvious.

We didn't need to see Leoman's 'oh, duh' moment... he probably suspected something was off about Loric as with every other High Mage in the Whirlwind.
