well, ann is certainly a more sympathetic character because she's a naive
child. they are both very clever. also, i think when vierran goes soppy
toward the end of the book over mordion it's a bit off-putting, even if it's
completely understandable. the book sort of pulls away from her when the
reveal (ann -> vierran) is made, and you end up feeling much more sympathy
for mordion starting from that point on.

not to my knowledge. i think it's left up to our imaginations. Something
Very Nasty. perhaps that one can only do with reigner powers and lifetimes
of practice. best not to dwell on it, i think.
