Carl's Great-grandsons

I am surprised that Carl Farness is neither surprised nor concerned when he realizes that his great-grandsons in the fourth century are to be the Hamther and Sorli who died trying to avenge their sister in the stories that Carl himself has traveled to the fourth century to research. If Carl had not had a son by Jorith, then that son would not have had a son who had sons...

Carl is already involved in a crucial causal circle. Surely the Patrol should already be on the alert?

Kaor, Paul!

I thought Carl was surprised when he eventually realized his own descendants would become the characters in the legends he was trying to trace and record. And it does seem odd the Patrol did not act sooner about the crucial causal loop Carl had become entangled with.
