: What if Bonesplitter is the Head? Okay, first,
: Bonesplitter was turned from
: the light. This means that he probably doesn't like
: Shiver (who we shall
: assume to the The Voiceless One) and The Watcher because
: they are both ancient
: evils. Bonesplitter is also an enemy of Balor because he
: was good before he
: got turned.
: So Bonesplitter is in a battle and gets his head chopped
: off. Balor hears that
: he is dead, and can't communicate with him because
: Bonesplitter is very weak
: and buried under a lot of stuff. So Balor thinks that he
: is dead and doesn't
: pay any attention to him. This gives Bonesplitter quite a
: bit of freedom
: because Balor is no longer looking at his every move.
As much as I like the idea of The Head being an otherwise unmentioned Fallen Lord, there is a flaw in your theory. You say Balor cut off Bonesplitter's head, and had enough time to bury it under tons of sand and rock, and then forgot about it until the Light found it. This is a span of maybe ten years (the Light don't often go into the Barrier, it may have been longer). By this time everyone would know that there were only FIVE Fallen Lords, not six.
