It’s just dawned on me that the colon makes it seem like a US TV series. Name, colon, job-description, as in ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ or ‘Walker: Texas Ranger’. But then there’s an exclamation-mark, like a 60s musical. So the point seems to be that Tarra Khash is the very last person you would expect to become a Hrossak and that this is a surprise to the expected readership. Is this the case? Google didn’t enlighten me much. http://www.brianlumley.com/books/cthulhu/hoc2.html Cthulhu the rom-com, apparently.
