Isn't that more or less a given? What's not quite so clear is _why_ he's a VAF worshipper. Is it a function of the somewhat ad hoc sounding (and actually ritually innovative, or somewhat traditional?) High King of Volsaxar assumption of (I think) '17? Does it date back to his being King of the Volsaxi, earlier (no idea about this date), which I think is what Jeff is suggesting? Or is it essentially a personal trope?

I hasten to add, obviously, it'd be most ultratraditional type of 'innovation' possible...

What's the applicable myth here -- the 'original' killing of the entity that becomes the Bat?
