For a parent, it is a really hard decision. It's one thing to have conflicts between two children, but it is really hard to participate in that conflict, knowing that you're going to have to make a difficult decision.
But who knows how it'll turn out.
You could be onto something here.... It could even be tarquin choosing
which one of them lives
for some reason.
It will be definitely be something as dramatic as possible, and I suspect Tarquin will make it that way on purpose since as well as power, theatricality is what governs his life, just as it does with Elan, only with Elan being influenced by good.
