The Red Goddess was upon a quest of reconstruction. She was recovering her lost parts, one of which was (or might have been) Nysalor. Many say she is Nysalor, reconstructed fromt he dismembered parts that Arkat left behind.

In theory, I suppose so.
Though, in mythic truth, it is not development as much as discovering their inner powers.
Perhaps a subtle difference, maybe too subtle.

But in general. the entities that have a Cosmic connection with the Greatest Unknown are that way because, well, they are that way.
