When he was eaten by Aurene, he laughed (iirc, pretty sure he did). It didn't sound like an insanity laugh, it sounded more like he knew what he was doing. Then, Aurene was revived by Joko's lich powers. Am I giving Joko too much credit, or did he foresee Aurene's death? Hoping this question gets answered in the story somehow--Joko's death wasn't quite the "closure" I expected.
