I think Cazaril has saved because a lot of effort has been put into making
Caz a useful person for the Daughter to work through in the world.  She's
not going to waste a useful tool by letting him die for good when he
doesn't need to!  Plus, if one rewards someone appropriately for the work
they've done, then they're more likely to be available to do good work in
the future.

Cazaril and Betriz get the benefit of this (as do Iselle and Bergon by not
losing their advisor/chancellor).


Prayer, he suspected as he hoisted himself up and turned for the door, was
putting one foot in front of the other.  Moving all the same.
