Why would we believe that Pas is a Neighbor? 

I agree that Horn's reluctance to consider or explicate the reasons that he
can Travel without the Inhumi present is a reflection of his fears about
his own status, but it seems more likely that he fears that the translation
from his birth body to the body he finds himself in on the _Whorl_ has made
him no longer human. This, in fact, seems the most likely to me; Horn is no
longer human, even in Silk's body.
