quote: We do, though? By his own admission, he was bitter and harsh, and according to Akanthus, who knew him at the time, his "hatred got the best of him" (which seems to be what led him to bonding with Senthris). We don't even know if Akanthus turned him against magic in the first place (correct me if I'm wrong) or if it was just the sort of thing he wound up doing on his own.
In regards to Saellah and Sepulchure, we don't know what Saellah was like before he started working for Akanthus.
quote: I'm not sure whether or not Fluffy's intentions or anything along those lines are even provable at this point (Final 13th aside), given the fact that he existed as a normal Dracolich for about five seconds, so I'm not particularly sure either way.
As for Sepulchure, Fluffy and the Hero's dragon bonded almost immediately after they were born in a manner akin to imprinting. We don't know the mental capacity of baby dragons and whether they fully understand the consequences of bonding but it is possible that Fluffy choose to bond with Sepulchure because that was the only reality he knew at the time.
quote: Fair enough, but does Sepulchure really strike you as somebody who wouldn't enslave a dragon through necromancy? He's not exactly an ethical practitioner of...well, anything.
Also not all necromancers enslave the souls of the people they raise. They are the minority, but there are good necromancers like the ones outside of Falconreach's graveyard and the one in Moonridge who only raise willing undead to assist them. Unlike the enslaved undead, these willing dead have a degree of sapience including the ability to speak.
