Re: Vaarsuvius is the bored player
As I have remarked before: The world of OotS behaves like a Dungeons & Dragons game, and this includes the main characters acting like PCs; i.e., they act in many ways as if they were controlled by players -- fairly archetypal players, even. Thus we may speak fairly meaningfully, I think, of what these players would be like, were they real. (And, heck, it's not like the members of the Order are especially real themselves, being fictional characters and all.)
One could certainly make a case that V's Hypothetical Player is bored with the current sidequest.
