If someone else has said this before I missed it. Advance Mea Culpas if so.

What if Michael Roeles Bloodline did not completely merge with the Land ?
What if he (the Gorgon) can still sense it but that he can not get to it
for some reason ?

Would that not drive him mad ? Would he not fear that some hero could
sneak in during abscence and the bloodline which resists him would flow
to this scion ? Or even worse some underling ? Just a notion. As always
