Do you have a setting, character, plot, art, or other notion that you wish to put on the Internet? This is the Internet! Whee!

So Esere is an Ezar, right?

Posting this here from chat with Kappa because it seems like the kind of thing people would want to know:

me:
brain: "So if the last book-holder was an Ezar, and an immortal emperor Gregor started at the beginning of this world, that implies that the last world contained a natural Ezar-Serg-Gregor chain, and now I desire to know things about the Serg."
me: "I doubt *Kappa* knows things about this Serg tbh"

Kappa:
there was not a Serg!
there was also not a Gregor!
Esere put himself in the book and then made an altered copy with some changes to optimize for the relevant conditions and made that altered copy the immortal emperor

me:
...huh
that...
I am surprised

Kappa:
how so?

me:
...Gregors definitely have things in common with their grandfathers, but I wouldn't have figured you could get one by taking an Ezar and making a handful of alterations. Also, no one ever tell Siurek this, ever

Kappa:
hahahaha ilu
If you start with an Ezar and then you have that one or another Ezar do mental alterations with a fairly free hand, optimizing for competent peacetime rulership and other harder-to-articulate conditions
you end up with a Gregor
although I think it has to be "plan all changes and then implement all at once" rather than gradual self-modification

...Definitely thought Esere was a Sherlock. This makes Vorkosiganish sense, though.
