Well, we can't really talk about should and shouldn't without considering the psychology of the character. Remember, Trammenis is the diplomat son, not the warrior. He's inclined to talk to people rather than croak them. And there's no reason for him to listen to Charlie, except that Charlie is showing him some neat information which he certainly suspects to be one-sided and biased. Tram notices that Charlie doesn't want Jetstone to talk to GK, and Tram might still think that Charlie wants to conquer the whole world. Either way, Tram concludes that Charlie is afraid of a Jetstone-Gobwin Knob alliance. This is wrong, but it's really Charlie's fault--like you said, Charlie never shows his full hand, so no one expects him to. Meaning that when Charlie comes in with all this cool info, Trammenis's reaction is not "Wow! I'd better listen to Charlie!" but "Hmm... What's being left out? How can I find it?"Hinotori wrote:I really like Tramennis as a character, but he really should have listened to Charlie. This is one case where curiosity almost certainly kills.

First of all, I'm 90% sure Charlie CAN tap into Thinkagrams; he's just not showing his full hand.

suggests he's getting his data from Parson's eyebook (Think he still makes notes in it), but not from MK casters.
