    I wondered that myself, and I would put forward that Jones is simply hiding in plain sight.

    Consider the implications of a being like Jones in our own world. She has not only seen the entirety of human history but the very beginnings of the Earth itself, and she remembers every single instant of her existence. Consider the impact a being like her would have on religion, science, philosophy, etc.

    She might simply want to exist unnoticed. Appearing as a young woman working at the Court helps facilitate that disguise.

    The ways of man and hound are not enough. I come to you, spirits of the old forest, I who build fences, I who came with fire and steel to drive you away. I come to you because fear has made my arms weak. I ask you for unforgiving rage to make them strong again.

    Kill the hound in my heart, and grow strong from the meat on its bones. In its place, give me the wolf.
