I just re-read the Belgariad and Mallorean series, as well as Belgarath the Sorcerer and Polgara the Sorceress by David Eddings.
At the end of the final book, Polgara, Ce’Nedra muses about the identity of the unknown Wolf, the orphaned wolf cub the adventurers picked up outside the city of the Dals. She puts the thought out of her mind, and Eddings leaves the question unanswered.
The final paragraph is that Wolf stares into the fire for a while to make sure everything is in order, then goes to sleep.
Who is Wolf, really? Does anybody have an idea, or has there been any information about what Eddings might have meant? I suspect he’s just playing fast and loose and threw in a cosmic brain fart just to keep his readers on his toes and so he could cook up a nifty ending.
