Things could work out that Clank/Anevka gets restored to her old body
and joins Klaus in the role of Revenant Controller General.
Clank/Lucrezia winds up in an evacuated bell jar on Klaus' desk.
Tarvek (if he survives) is confined to his little domain in the
mountains waiting for the Giesterdamen to come back looking for the
Lost Mistress. If this happens, Tarvek is in a position to re-create
a clueless Other/Lucrezia using the Improved Summoning Engine. Thus
another reason for introducing Clank/Lucrezia.
If he doesn't survive, the Giesterdamen may go back to plan A and try
to re-acquire Agatha, perhaps this time convinced she *is* the Mistress.
This actually has the potential for no less than three or four sources
of Revenant Chaos.
Sounds like fun!

to get the upper hand.
Lunevka is good at voice production and if there was any such auditory
signal for waking Lucrezia, she'd know it.
So in basically any trial setting, Lunevka would likely have the power
to swap Agatha for Lucregatha again.
So flushing all of Lucrezia "out of the system" in one go could be
pretty difficult. And that's before we take into account that there
is now a summoning engine generic enough to even transfer Lucrezia
into a clank brain. It should certainly work with flesh-and-blood
subjects now without the need of direct relationship.

don't know that Lucrezia Mongfish was The Other and that
the Geisterdamen are The Other's servants. Only the
royal family, the Geisterdamen, and the Shadow Knights
knew the situation. Even when Aaronev puts Agatha
into the chair, the human servants present may only
know that he's trying to restore Lucrezia, without
knowing that she's The Other.
So I think Vrin might be his only accuser who was
actually there. Electrolucz, though, could claim to
be the original Anevka - or to believe herself to be
that - and accuse him as well. She could order revenants
to lie as witnesses - well, they'd be spotted, apparently.
If Electrolucz is exposed, Klaus's mutant ability to identify
the manufacturer of sparkwork will point the finger at Tarvek
- he made that, apparently.
Incidentally, I need to remind myself that Tarvek just
might be playing for the big stakes of having Klaus
somehow restore Anevka - flesh-and-blood Anevka -
mostly since Klaus has a spare female body apparently
waiting for a brain. Although by now Boris's brain
could be in it... but no, Klaus doesn't abuse Boris.
"That's what the Jagermonsters are for!"
And I think poor Olga has just finished with her role
of being Agatha's stage double - she's just another
corpse and won't be reappearing in the story.
Outside chance, though, that Gil borrows her
to put Judy into. Judy wasn't doing well, last seen.
