Is there a plan to revise Fehim? He's rather... unsympathetic, in his writeup in the Caste Book.
He's slated to appear in Adversaries of the Righteous
, and he remains unsympathetic. Solar Exaltation doesn't guarantee decency or wisdom.
As to his original portrayal, the Caste books were largely written to each include one deliberately unsympathetic character, reflecting the Immaculate Philosophy's portrayal of that Caste as Anathema. Fehim exists for this reason alongside Lyta, Havesh the Vanisher, and Mirror Flag. (Not sure offhand about Zenith.)
