He isn't *always* the key figure in DWJ's multiverses. A Sudden Wild Magic,
Howl's Moving Castle, Deep Secret and The Dark Lord of Derkholm all take
place in multiverses, though Deep Secret is the only one of those to
actually involve more than two worlds in the plot. Some of the Chrestomanci
stories *could* just as easily take place in those worlds. I think my
problem with Chrestomanci plot-wise (as opposed to character-wise) is that
his nature is to A) come when you call him and B) be extremely powerful.
He's an insta-manci!

Thus I'm twice the geek for using it. :-)
