Maerlyn mentions that it was a peddler who ensorceled him, someone who had been lent strong magic by the Crimson King. He specifically mentions that it was not the Covenant Man aka MB/RF (he of little magic and long life). I believe that this peddler could be Leland Gaunt, one who would certainly serve the Crimson King. Also, the person who originally purchased the gun that Tim later acquires bought it from a peddler as well. Perhaps Gaunt and his sack of squealing souls again? That man, the teacher's brother, died early, before his time of unknown circumstances. I wonder if he suffered some sort of "accident."

Also, the peddler's moon and Gaunt have the same descriptor (the sack of squealing souls).

I was curious what others thought on the subject.

I thought the same thing - that there was a resemblance
