I'm not so sure.
In Book 1, Parson speculates about being undisbandable, which seems likely if he wasn't contructed as erfworlders are.
My guess is that the portal runs like this when a unit attempts to enter:
1 If caster = false, disband
2 transport unit to magic kingdom
This would let him go to the magic kingdom not by virtue of being a caster, but by virtue of not being disbandable.
Janis said that he's a hipiemancer, yeah. But Janis likes her perfect warlord story. She'd say that even if it wasn't true to preserve Parson, and that specifically
because the other casters would believe her. Otherwise, how would
she know? Sure, hippiemancy is her speciality and she's a master, but erfworld magic isn't described as working on vague intuitions and sensing disturbances in the force. Casters know eachother because they can see stats, and nobody can see Parson's.
'Course, knowing erfworld it'll probably both end up being half true in some unexpected way. I hope it will
