IMHO, Janus wants GK to conquer all of Erf, so there will be peace. Or is it more sinister? Janus is the two-faced god of Greek legend.
1. Her name is Janis
, as in Janis Joplin, the rocker. Look her up sometime, it is appropriate that her namesake in Erf is leader of the hippiemancers. Her title is Grand Abbie, as in Abbie Hoffman the revolutionary.
Nothing to do with Janus.
2. Janus is a roman
deity, not a greek one.
3. Janus is twofaced but not
in our sense of the word as being hypocritical or duplicitous. His faces looked in two different directions because he was the god of beginings and ending, of boundries between spaces both physical and conceptual. Doors for example, which connect the inside and outside of a building. Hence the word "janitor" which orifginally referred to a doorkeeper. And "January", while not always the first month on the calendar, always fell near the dividing point where winter began to recede and life in a seasonal environment could pick up again. In very early times, before Rome emerge as first among the latin peoples, little stylized representations of Janus were used as boundary markers.
If there were an erfling named Janus, he'd be an impassimancer, someone able to stop people form crossing a hex boundary, no matter how much move they had.
