If the Cyclopean Owl was for sale from Mr. Menagerie, what would it's description be? I haven't bought any other scouts yet because I have no idea how they compare.

I believe the Owl has limited range, can find up to three discoveries before returning, and conveys more information about what it finds.

Is the Candlewind what remains of Mr. Eaten? I mean, it's full of candles, it eats your supplies and it makes you hungry . . .

If there is a connection to Eaten, I would guess it's more superstitious than literal. Seeking and Mr. Eaten are part of the culture both before and after the exodus, so it's not surprising that skyfarers might name a phenomenon of the High Wildnerness from that mythos. (Plus, I don't think it actually contains candles--its flickering evokes a candle's flame.)

Who knows, though? Maybe something of the Runt still haunts the High Wilderness.
