I was hoping the daemon would be a better judge than Bellerophon 😞 . Then, he could arrest the entire city for consorting with daemons when he returned. Sure, they didn't know he was possessed, but that is no excuse 😛 !
Yay, you joined my challenge! : __D And wowev, you progressed the plot quite a bit! I still want more though - did the giant pelican really eat all those boats? & how was Alaric's nephew involved? Mysterious~
I don't know if I can work it into the last chapter, but his reasoning is something along the lines of "Thoas works there, so it must have been him."
(He was wrong.)
Edit: Re-reading this a few years later, I'm not sure what I was going for here. Did I confuse Autonous with Thoas, or did I think it was amusing to have Bellerophon confuse them (and then never get around to clarifying that in the story)? Oh well.

So, Chevodocus has been kidnapped and Bellerophon has been possessed. Will we get to see the daemon acting as judge of Cademia or will Bellerophon break free in time to prevent the daemon from doing something heinous (such as releasing Antenor or some such thing)?
Well, I finally got around to reading this series (I had skimmed a chapter or two some years ago). It's an interesting premise and well-written as usual. It's too bad that most of these characters (and their creators) have disappeared from the TSs 😞 .
As far as I know, the game does not indicate that there is a specific prohibition against mages marrying. That said, there are no known married mages, and the requirements of the job seem to suggest that it would be difficult for a mage to have a family. It is also worth noting that most people in Cythera are still wary of the mages, trusting them because Alaric wishes them to. It is possible that marriage is permitted but is almost unheard of.
My guess is that the isolation would include families, although there seems to be no prohibition against visiting a freemage or a freemage passing through a town. Timon actively joins your group which would seem to violate the requirements, but Lindus might have granted him leeway given the circumstances.
Given the relatively low number of judges, it is possible that every mage has to fill the position at some point or other but that it can be deferred until after one has served as a freemage. Alternatively, there may be more judges than seen in the game or, as you suggested, mages might meet this requirement through some period of a civic service.
I love all the Z-WOLF team fighting moves that they all know instinctually as though they've done them dozens of times before! (OR, have they done them before? Maybe this isn't the first time the goat god turned back time?)
