By sub-operant, I take it to mean that he has
metabilities of a paramount level but can use only
selected portions of those abilities, except under
extraordinary mental duress (such as a split
personality disorder). The abilties are only
sub-operant most likely, as May says, due to personal
hang-ups/trauma etc or because their brain was not
trained fully when young. Denis comes under both these
categories - he was supposedly abused as a child and
also I don't think the flash card games Rogi played
with him would be comparable to the sophisticated
operancy programmes the Milieu had.

as a Hgh Five operant paramount) was a sub-operant
paramount in all five-metafaculties. This doesn't mean
that he ordinarily could use the full range indicated
by that assay. I would guess that Denis was operant to
a degree equivalent to a GM in coercion, fasensing and
redaction, and a master in the other two faculties.
But, he says in INTERVENTION that the MP assay of
Lucille Cartier complements his extradordinarily well.
From this we can roughly deduce Luc's and his
metabilities. Lucille would have to have been a GM
creator I would say, to be able to show the abilties
she did without training (and also, severe mental
disturbances). I think Lucille would also have been a
very strong psychokinetic. Her psychokinesis is
mentioned several times whereas I cannot recall a
single mention of Denis using extensive PK.
So, by this I would deduce it was Denis' coercion,
farsensing and redaction (?) that were passed onto his
descendents and Lucille's creativity and
