Q: If I may ask (and you can decline from answering if it steals too much from the storyline), why did you decide to create the characters Sorykah and Soryk with no consciousness of each other’s actions?
A: Each of us has a shadow side, and we embrace or recoil from it in varying degrees. Life is a journey to wholeness, understanding and integrating all the disparate aspects of self into a strong, unified being. It's this pursuit that is best characterized by "the perilous curse," Sorykah's disease of forgetting. If she retained all her memories through the changes, she would be someone else entirely. She'd be some sort of new century superhero, which is its own compelling story, just not hers, sadly!
