After rereading that section, I find that Ordol doesn't actually
describe the origin of the B*stard. At least not as specifically
as I'd remembered. Instead, he gives two alternate stories, both
preceded by "some say", and doesn't commit  himself to either. So
apparently he didn't get the story direct from the gods, or if he
did, they were unreliable.

And if he didn't get that detail direct from the gods, then what
about the rest of creation story? It seems to me that that could
be more myth than fact.
