Point of order: I don't believe it is actually stated anywhere, either
in LoCC or in Stealer of Souls, that Tacroy did marry his lady. SoS,
indeed, appears to delight in confounding anyone who expected it to
make a positive declaration on the subject.[1]

Not that I think Tacroy is gay, mind you; I'm just saying.

[1] Their cameo in SoS, in fact, gave me a distinct feeling of there
being more to their story than we saw in LoCC. Maybe we'll get a bit
of it in Conrad's Fate.
