Topic: Halo Primordium questions

Hello, Greg Bear, its Joey. I just want to say Primordium was awesome! It was just as great as Cryptum, with more surprises and excitement. I can't wait for the third book and how Halo 4 connects with these books. I just had two questions about Primordium:

1. On page 339, the Didact is said to have six fingers on his hands. Is this from his mutation or do all Forerunners have six-fingered hands?

2. Will we ever see Mara again? I was surprised that my favorite species of apes, Gigantopithecus, appeared in an installment from my all-time favorite story. But I wonder where she went.

Thanks. :)

I do believe Mara is in the personal care of the Lifeshaper... But who can say how that will turn out? Thanks, Joey!
