Default Re: Exploring the Subtextual - Robinton/Menolly in the DRoP series

I don't think MHoP has any explicit reference but it definitely has a section involving Robinton struggling over the issue of Camo having a bad birth (umbilical cord was around his neck I believe, cutting off oxygen to the brain leading to his mentally deficient state) and his subsequent issues with fatherhood--wishing Camo to be more proficient, but with Silvina's advice coming to view the apprentices of the Harper Hall as his children and accepting Camo for who he was rather than endlessly wishing for him to be someone he was not.
