"Hmm. Is he wondering whether Gil could resist, or whether Klaus could?"

It is possible that Boris is directing his questions in order to figure out if either Gil or Klaus is wasped, or if both of them are. He is likely trying to find out who he can trust and who he should help if he can.

Remember, however, it was Boris that revealed in dialog a while back that Klaus only listened to "Princess Ankevna" and could keep him calm. Plus, I think Boris was also there when Gil and Tarvek were talking about the possibility that the Baron was wasped. Boris just needs to add two and two together, and I know he has the brains to do that.

I think we can now appreciate why Boris is the Baron's second-in-command.

As for the your other two questions, I would have to say no, but I'm just going on memory. Just on logic, however, if Agatha ever gave Gil an order and Boris was present, I think he would think that was odd, at very least. I also get the impression that only those that are wasped would recognize the commmand harmonics, but only on a subconscous level. Kaja has said that Klaus doesn't know that Lukevna is controling him, and if you remember Snoug acted like a complete zombie when Lugatha started issuing commands, but went back to normal soon afterward. The only exception was that weird doctor in the beginning that activated the Hive Engine on Castle Wulfenbach - he was aware of being controled. Which seems inconsitant.

The Weird Doctor was aware... but then, he wasn't following an instant command in the presence of his Mistress. He was told, "Isn't there something you need to be doing?" Which required him to think, and act outside her immediate vicinity. And, hm, implies that he may have had prior instructions?? Because "shine my shoes" might also count. Although "Airship Domination" is a pretty likely assumption.

There's also Vrin, of course, who obeyed Lucrezia instantly but fought against following Agatha's commands. The degree to which this was a matter of Agatha not using the Voice quiiiiite right vs. Agatha not being the one Vrin was actually loyal to/had imprinted on is not yet wholly certain, but Vrin definitely knew when she was being hit with it.

And it occurs to me that Fraulein Snaug may, perhaps, be a bit prone to odd states of mind anyway -- didn't her Spark-master say something about brainwiping her memories away every now and then?

Ah, good point, I'd forgotten about that -- every year for her birthday.
