To Adam Louis Stephanides, who's joined the head counting debate:

I'm now arguing there are two multiples of five because *everything* in
FIFTH HEAD is paired.

The vertical configuration counts backwards from Number Five through time,
although its impetus is forward: 

5. Number Five
4. Maitre
3. Mr. Million
2. Gene Wolfe II (first cloned progeny)
1. Gene Wolfe (founder, ur-patriarch)

In this group, to incorporate David's maidenhead pun, Mr. Million is the

As for our Gene Wolfe, the one you number 1, he would be Gene Wolfe 0.

The horizontal configuration includes the current batch of Wolfes, the one
Aunt Jeannine can't quite total to five (because she's unaware of who
Number Five's sister is).

1. Maitre
2. Aunt Jeannine
3. Number Five
4. David
5. Phaedria

In the above configuration Phaedria is the virgin, because I refuse to
believe that given the casual attitude about sex and the licentiousness of
the Maison du Chien that Aunt Jeannine is still hymenally intact.
