It wasn't Aurene that was controlling her body after the Scion & Champion chapter?
What if, after the trials, when Glint asks Aurene to enter a different portal, Glint switched her consciousness with Aurene and sealed her inside the Crystal Cave?
Two randons facts that backup this absurd theory:
- The very first line that is said after Aurene leaves the room is by Caithe. "Aurene, you feel.... different."
- Aurene has growth a lot since HoT, but its curious how she is suddently capable of Branding and helping with the Forge as an expert out of nowhere. Same goes for her fight against Krakaltorik, she wasn't only showing courage, but real battle experience at key moments of the fight. Is that just dragon instinct?
Oh lets fess it, thats totally something that Glint could do. Not even losing her body killed her 100% after all.
