For the past two years, while trying to sort out the rather complex back-story of Exode, I've rather mercilessly made fun of Parthney and his youthful follies. Parthney reminds me of "Chauncey Gardiner" in the film Being There. Parthney is sent to Earth with very low expectations. The Interventionist masterminds who plan his mission to Earth expect Parthney to just bumble around on Earth for a few years before being captured by the Overseers who watch over Earth and who are always on the lookout for Interventionist agents.
|Parthney is a "Thomas clone".|
|Parthney is half Asterothrope and half Ek'col.|
However, she bumps into Ekcolir, an Ek'col male who has been specifically designed to be inter-fertile with Trysta. Trysta is surprised when she becomes pregnant. Growing up inside Trysta, her son Thomas soon develops telepathic communications with Trysta.
Thomas, and all of his many clones, including Parthney, have a strong genetic predisposition towards lives full of artistic endeavors. Thomas becomes a writer and Parthney is a musician while living on Hemmal, although later in life he takes up the pen and writes books such as Last Night on Hemmal.

When Parthney and Kach are finally reunited, they set off on a new mission among the stars, again searching for the Creators.
Next: I start my 2015 search for aliens.
