Anyone else find it strange that Ender is accusing someone of being a second, after his recent fiasco? How many characters have you inhabited?
That's not to say either way about Tristian, myself, I have no clue--but perhaps you're just jumping on him because he is actually fighting young? The Seer skillset isn't extremely hard to use to devastating effect...
And to boot, you didn't answer the question of using hecritor to bypass BL, which is an obvious abuse.
What is your response to the actual question posed? I'll await your response.
