What a terrible fate! I guess his soul just couldn't get over
...not that it matters too much once you don't have a body to feed...
I cannot help but wonder how they "forced" him to eat the meat.
Hiding it in his soup?
Starving him until he was willing to eat _anything_?
I liked the one Maeve sent too:
<< To thank Darerca for the spiritual elevation in his life, he
slaughtered one of his piglets and cooked it up for her and her crew as a
feast. She said, gee, that's great, but we don't eat meat (carnes). And
she restored the cut-up cooked little piggy to one whole live piggy.>>
Neat trick. :)
