Castle Perilous is part of Arthurian legend.  Dame Lionesse was the lady of Castle Perilous, married to Gareth, brother of Gawain.

It's also a series of fantasy books by John DeChancie.

That too. :)

So they have a series of dedicated hoppers to move between floors, and likely between different places on different floors

Areum says the hoppers are safer, this is probably from the possibility of an attack. You will note she's taking the grav-lifts nose-down to more easily look for threats.

I remember when Diana was terrified of the grav-lifts, but she never said anything as I recall about the "displacement headaches" before she got her 'plant (short of the first hopper trip where the change in gravity was sensed as "falling downward".)  Lorelei may be on to something.

Everything that allows you to live longer leads to at least the opportunity for greater enlightenment.

Sounds like Juan is mentally more or less all there. Slipping clues to your partner while heavily drugged and badly broken requires a strong mind.

I guess Juan was supposed to be too incapacitated to reveal anything incriminating.  Doctor's orders.

Seriously. Time for a transfer to a different hospital.

The spouse wanted life support cut off, the parents didn't. It was in court for years.

If you're talking about Terri Schiavo, there was no life support involved other than food and water.  The spouse claimed she "wouldn't want to be a vegetable" and wanted her euthanized.  The parents wanted to feed and care for her.  She was unable to feed herself.   The court ordered an armed guard to prevent anyone attempting to bring her water while she slowly dehydrated over the course of a week (indicating her robust physical health despite the brain damage).

Yup we meant the same thing. Hospitals consider IV Food and Water life support. And regardless of how you feel about that the point is that if she had declared someone a DPOA there wouldn't have been a fight over it. Juan might end up the same way. Physically fine, but with brain damage.
