Quandary Resolution 1456
anthelion, ocularly, sinew, snuff
Hoping that nicotine would calm his nerves, Karl gestured to his servant, but when Sypeck offered Karl the snuff box Karl was diverted from his worries by the sight of Sypeck's ungloved sinewy hand (like faux leather stretched over a metal armature) and he wished he had his 7mm planetary ocular with him so that he could observe discreetly from a distance and perhaps learn whether Sypeck was a cyborg and, if so, whether the faint white halo that occasionally appeared behind Sypeck when they were outside on a sunny day was a purely coincidental anthelion or an electromagnetic emission from Sypeck's skull.
