    Anyway, why are people talking about a Gorgon codex when the story is currently focused on the new and mysterious Cretan codex? The one with a bull's head which is surprisingly devoid of snake hair?

    It's a minotaur. Not much else to say.

    Minotaurs are probably the Bizarro-werewolves. They have a connection to the sun rather than the moon, and favor strength over speed.

    You asserted that hiding the Bibliography, which turns into a disk, would be as easy as Raoul hiding his page nature, which given the context, likely includes horns.

    Yeah, no. That's not likely.

    I think in the traditional Greek and Roman stories the gorgons had normal legs, and that it was later reinterpretations that changed it to having the lower torso of a snake. Much like how sirens changed from looking like harpies to mermaids.

    Green Knight != Black Knight

    The Green Knight was a guy who got his head cut off for fun.

    He made a game out of this: he challenged someone to what could appropriately be called a head-off: first, someone cut his head off with an axe, then he himself cut the other guy's head off with an axe as well. Normal people generally assumed they would win by default after the first round, but they ended up losing at the second round, chased by a headless guy wielding an axe while a disembodied head on the ground is laughing and telling them to stay still or they're cheaters.

    (Okay, that's not exactly how the legend goes, but it's funnier this way.)

    Oh you silly people and your Gorgons. Why would it be called a Cretan Codex if it's about Gorgons?

    That's like having a Hades Codex and have it being about Zeus.

    Except that Ben happened to be awakened, meaning he can see those things. That would make it harder for Raoul to hide his nature than Ben, as ben can turn his whitebox weapon into a patch, while Raoul will be stuck with whatever changes to his features he gets.

    Don't the abyssals just have the regular number (i.e. 67, in this case), instead of the roman numerals of the codex spirit?

    edit- I also kinda hope he doesn't descend anytime soon. I'd feel bad for the codex if the first guy who's compatible that comes along in decades goes nutso on you right away.
