Ooh, I didn't think of Penric and Desdemona, but it is true, they
are friends -- I think it really started with the gift of the name. I 
feel that Penric didn't have much of a chance to make a lot of

family wasn't *that* noble? He seems so eager to make a friend -- 
even with his bride-to-be. (-: And then he gets prickly Desdemona,

somewhat blind to her faults, or thinks they are fixable (or

The Caz/Pally was a good friendship at the right time.
