That's a weird comparison considering the 13 month series are still objects. Heck, soul and all one of the 13 months could even be an observer. And even if the stingray was like the guardians at the hell train... wouldn't it still be a sort of living creature? If not at least biological? I suppose it wouldn't qualify as a shineuh in that scenario though.Something like that is hard to say in ToG, but it could be. Look at the 13 months. They are weapons, yet they have a conciousness. It also could be artifical, like the GoG. But the fact remains that whatever it is, it is useful to the scout position.
I think it's like with any other item - it can have special functions based on the users style of scouting.
The scout is there to gather information. If the lightbearer could see that far without the scout, there is no need for a scout. Hacking (or using) systems to gather information is both done by lighthouse users (Khun's brother) and scouts (karaka).
The lightbearer is (in my opinion) more like a conductor for the team.
If the light bearer just needs someone to point him into the right direction, they could use a fisherman to do so.
Ah, that's not what I had in mind when I wrote the post. It's usually the lightbearer that helps aim and increase the team's range. As in, it'd be the light bearer that would help direct shinsoo blasts and spears towards a target. Information brought along by the scout would be necessary to that end of course. I suppose an observer could work with a spear bearer to that effect but in the end it's the lighthouse that provides the aid to aim and whatnot.
