This wasn’t the answer on Caduceus’ sexuality I was hoping for, but I’m so grateful for it. Taliesin knows what this means to people, and he wants to make sure he has time and space to explore it properly rather than give a short, incomplete answer. “We’re not there yet, but definitely…” He wants to … Continue reading Transcript: Taliesin hints as Caduceus’ sexuality and discusses Fjord’s “bad decision” – TM for CR C2 Ep41 1:04:07
Caduceus leaned against the railing of the Squall-Eater, watching two birds from a nearby island loudly arguing over a fish.

Reading the Talks Machina question submissions this week, I was struck by how many of them asked how Caduceus felt about Melora not talking to him or not in the way The Traveler talks to Jester. Some asked if this was a conscious character choice, and they were nearer the mark.
