M.C. This was a poor translation from the French, I'm afraid. In actual=20=

certain amount of debate as to how to classify his status. Some=20
suggestions so far include "both dead and alive", "neither dead nor=20
alive", "undead", "zombie", and Messiah". Quite frankly, I assume the=20
general is just stalling for time, waiting for the Ascension, when the=20=

question will be moot.
