|R. Gohrlay and Gohrlay|
Gohrlay is apparently in possession of information that R. Gohrlay had accumulated concerning the early life of Skaña. According to Gohrlay, Angela's account of Skaña's early life is quite misleading. Below, I summarize the key differences between Angela's account and the historical record as it was passed from R. Gohrlay to Gohrlay and, today, to me.
According to Gohrlay, Skaña grew up in a community that was named after its local environmental conditions and given a name that we can reasonably translate into English as "Greentown". Gohrlay agrees with Angela that Skaña grew up in the 61 virginis system. However, Gohrlay believes that the habitation domes of Greentown were not located on an asteroid and supplied by artificial gravity, but rather, were on a planet with Earth-like gravity.

Regardless of the actual galactigraphical location of Greentown, according to Gohrlay it was an important center for human genetic experimentation. Gohrlay believes that the Asterothropes were artificially evolved at Greentown.
While we discussed Greentown, Gohrlay mentioned that Pallis Atwrode grew up on another planet where there were also long-lasting experiments in the artificial selection of humans. As described by Jack Vance in Star King, Pallis was born on the planet Ys. On that world, social conditions and marriage customs allowed for extensive human in-breeding. According to Gohrlay, Deleterious genes were secretly removed from the population by femtobot-mediated genetic engineering.

I'm not sure what a "Bimanoid Anchor Point" is, but from the description provided to me by Gohrlay, it seems like Pallis was the perfect infiltrator. The plan was for the rather exquisite phenotypic features of Pallis to attract the attention of the Demon Prince known as Malagate. Once in residence on "Teehalt's planet", Pallis could have then at any time been "taken control of" by her replicoid in the Hierion Domain and used to collect genetic data from the experimental test subjects on that planet. This plan became moot when Gersen killed Malagate and the timeline was shifted in another direction.
