Hey guys, its been awhile.
I've recently finished both the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies, which if you haven't read you should. If you have not but wish to, you shouldn't be here anyway. I might ruin a few things for you.
Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised about the continuity between the end of Hereticus and the start of Ravenor, what with Nayl and Kara being carried over, as well as Ravenor himself.
I was happy to see Alizebeth Bequin get a mention in Ravenor Returned (even in her condition), as she was one of my favourite characters due to her an Eisenhorn's feelings for each other. It made for an interesting, yet tragic love affair that added depth to the story.
Okay, enough ranting from me. I've noticed that, after reading Ravenor Rogue, there is no more mention of Bequin beyond the scene where Nayl and Zael visit her in the first book. What happened to her after that?
I mean, the ship she was on, the Hinterlight, is boarded near the end of Ravenor, and no mention of her is given even when the ship is turned upside-down by the search-party/hunters. Ravenor's band also parts ways with that ship at the end of the book, going with Sholto Unwerth instead on his way back to Eustis Majoris. In turn, that ship also gets raided during Returned by Worna and Siskind. Again, if she was there, no mention.
I can only assume that when they make their detour on the way to Eustis to visit Thorn, aka Eisenhorn, that she is left in his care. It makes sense, given their relationship. But it also raises the question of why she wasn't with him to begin with. Why Ravenor instead?
Anyway, I've ranted too much. I just wanted to ask your opinions on the matter, or to inform me if I've missed another mention of her during Returned or Rogue.
X-Slash-X, ending rant.

Just to get my characetrs right - Bequin was the untouchable wasn't she?
Wasn't it vaguely and generally explained that Eisenhorn had gone a bit nuts, almost into hiding?
Maybe he wasn't in any fit state to look after someone in a coma.
I've only read the series once and I may have missed something too, but I thought it was perceived that Eisenhorn went a bit mad and disbanded his group for their own good and for his privacy?
I can't say I've seen it all but I live for the things that keep me hollow.
That is pretty much how the end of the Eisenhorn books explain it. What I'm referring to, however, is what happens after that, in the Ravenor books. If you haven't read them, then this won't make any sense. I'm beginning to think it's just an inconsistency in the writing, as there doesn't seem to be any further mention beyond the first Ravenor book.
