I like to think I'd know Parson's response to this description of him, "Wanda, GTFO!"
He is smart, good and min-maxing, and creative. However, he is also very, very human. Yet, those around him seem to building him up to be a Messianic figure. While Christ figures are quite common in the arts, the idea of a reluctant savior in denial is less common (Life of Brian is an obvious exception).
Also, I find it interesting that Ansom and Lady Lazarus have such different opinions of Parson. Ansom has grown to think of Parson as "a Pretender in the service of the Titans," a rival for Wanda's approval, an interloper, and a blasphemer.
On a final note, it appears Jetstone is not aware of Parson, or Ossomer would surely have recognized the name of the Warlord who defeated his brother's grand coalition.
Edit: Also, the talk of ideas made me think of the movie Inception. I wonder if it influenced this text update any.
