Any idea what happened with the Raiel named Quatux?
At the end of Chapter 13, Tarlo suggests that the StarFlyer wanted Quatux and the Guardians to get through the Gateway. Later, near the end of the chase scene on Far Away, the Barsoomians show up to protect Quatux.
But none of this is followed up on or resolved, that I could detect. Are we suposed to suspect that the StarFlyer might actually have gotten away by transferring his consciousness to Quatux? Or is there another resolution suggested in the text? Or is it simply an unaccounted for loose end?
