AFAIR, he hasn't when documented at Iceland. But a lot of people who can't see his character sheet probably think he has.

I'd agree with this view of him, and think it gets more extreme as time goes on. At WW, he isn't that bad.

Probably. I suspect he only really respects people who can physically beat him in combat - and a quick look at the stats says that Kallyr can't.

What she can do is manipulate him - she's good at that. But as control goes, it's not easy or reliable.

Agreed, he'd get bored and start attacking anything/one in sight. As long as he's around, finding him something to do will be a constant problem.

In fact, could we get a scenario out of that? Providing a wild goose for him to chase?
