Hope this is worthy of a new thread. kk2 pointed out that the Teela's father thing was hijacking another thread (in a round about way). Though there was more to it than just who was her father, but her relationship to the Sorceress what it means for her character being a clone in MOTUC. So here is a new thread to carry on that discussion here. I hope the posters don't mind I've quoted what I believe are the highlights of that thread of conversation.
