Parson is very impressed by Janis. He thinks her knowledge of Magic is second only to that of Isaac, and greatly appreciates her willingness to share it. He regards her as both wise and kind, but is unsure whether her mystical beliefs are correct or not.
Janis sees Parson as absolutely critical to the fulfillment of her dream of ending War on Erfworld. She wants him to avoid getting distracted from that goal into a quest to destroy Charlie, as the Great Minds and Maggie would prefer.
