From Melancon Eye:
text1 = "_I came from foul Zhass-Uss, where the foul Takers made me. They make my kind. Very few of us, for we are difficult to create. And then I was cast out._";
question = "Barzahl designed you?";
text1 = "_Barzahl's eyes saw the spark, the idea. But it was the Takers who created me. They are mighty._";
The drakons are encountering the same problems Shapers have with drayks: Gazers and eyebeasts are created rogue. Later in the Geneforge series, it is revealed that drakons cannot control powerful, rogue creations (Monastery Caves, Inner Gazak-Uss). This could be a reason why the Barzites did not pursue creating gazers and eyebeasts with the same intensity as the Takers.
Because of their rogue tendency, gazers and eyebeasts are far and few in-between. They are too independent and too few to become a force to challenge the drakons. The gazers are content with the power they have.
Again from Thot-Tha:
text2 = "_But I did not care for their madness and their desire to destroy Shapers. I do not fear you, Shaper, but I see no reason why I must fight with you. That is why I came south to help the Barzites._";
Would you want an ally dedicated to your cause entirely, or one who makes the aforementioned statement?

But then why don't they use rogue creation against the shapers and the drakons ?
Even so, drakons would be more active because they want revenge against the shapers on one side and on a other they would have to beat up gazers making them more active and efficient at kicking butts .
You can jump off a bridge, fire a gun in your mouth, drink poison,or going in to the tiger's pit but you will still end up dead it's a mater of time and how .

quote:Only problem I have with that is that in G4 (can't remember if it is mentioned in other Geneforges) one of the Gazers that you meet says that "they" do not like Shapers because their kind is Barred. ;)
Infiltrators? No. Agents? YES!!
