He knows too well the hazards of having a bastard heir running loose in the nexus, even without having crazy mad ambitious Cavilo for a mom. And with an Empire for a kid to inherit, who'd trust even a saint when she claims she has a working implant/took her meds/whatever.

there is a partial nexus map in Cetaganda, though I"m not sure if it appears
in the latest e-book incarnation it does appear in the earlier ebook from
