Not sure if this has been brought up before, apologies if so. Anyhow, something occurred to me recently.
So, as in Prospero Burns, apparently knowing someone's name gives you power over them. A reference to ancient mythology and such. All very well; I've always been something of a fan of the Horus Heresy series' constant references to ancient human beliefs and such*. However...
Surely that means any randomer with a minute amount of psychic power could just walk up to Draigo and shout:"KALDOR DRAIGO!!" and that's that; he has power over him.
Or am I missing something...?
N.B: I've deliberately asked this question in a manner which might make the question (and me) look brazen and entirely stupid. The astute of you will realise that, if I'm right in my interpretation of this material (and I sincerely hope I'm not, and that I have simply misunderstood, or not read the book for far too long), then said mannerism kind of reinforces my overall point!
All thoughts welcome, cheers,
*To me, bizarrely you might say, it makes the ideas more 'real' (or, if you prefer, 'believable'), in a retrospective sort of way. Anyhow, that's another story entirely!!
