Brain wandering here ....

Doesn't Severian often describe Dorcas's "childlike beauty?"  "Dorcas" sounds
kind of like "Dolores", Lolita's true name.  And "Dolores" in turn suggests
pain ... a torturer?  Hum, and Humbert Humbert claims (falsely) to have a
photographic memory; an unreliable and biased narrator.

Okay, I'll shut up now.
