Last year I was sorting through an avalanche of information about the history of Humanity that had been provided to me by Ivory and her clone sisters.
|Humans and Fru'wu as subtypes of Sedronite.|
I hesitate to mention this, but I got into a big argument with Gohrlay about the definition of "human". Apparently Parthney is human because his biological father was an Ek'col. Of course, his biological mother was an alien (an Asterothrope), but Gohrlay says the Ek'col male was designed as a hybrid biological-artificial life form that is able to make certain that his children would meet the definition of "human" that is being enforced under the terms of the Trysta-Grean Pact.
|Artist's depiction of a Fru'wu|

Not many Earthlings ever saw the natural Fru'wu body form because the Fru'wu visitors to Earth were all equipped with nanites that allowed them to alter their appearance. Gohrlay says that Fru'wu wings are definitely mammalian wings, like bat wings, not the bird-like wings that are usually favored by Earthly artists when they create imagined winged creatures.
The Vanth-Vance Connection
|Vanth, 400 B.C.E.|
In the Ekcolir Reality, the Etruscan civilization flowered under Greek influence and there never was a Roman Empire. In the Buld Reality, time travel was used to put an end to the Etruscan civilization and this intervention resulted in the dominance of Rome.
|Luri of Tamari by Anney Fersoni|
Gohrlay says that Anney and the Dead Widowers extensively researched the methods that were used to put an end to the Etruscan civilization. However, they were not allowed to publish Luri of Tamari. There is some part of the story of the Fru'wu that is still being kept under wraps by the tryp'At. I sense that Gohrlay is protecting me by not telling me the whole story about Vanth's death.
