There is no "fanatical" implication in {qolqoS}. That was an initial
guess at the meaning by Lawrence, which got the response "Not
necessarily fanatical." I have it glossed as "core, essence". In the
right context, I think "heart" could be an appropriate translation as
well.

Marc suggested {boQ} or {cha'DIch} for the "sidekick" idea I was asking about.

{vIl} explicitly does not mean "stalker". It's a neutral term, not a
negative one.
