I suppose another possibility is that it could be both of them, "the other person" entwining their thoughts with Talana's, learning, influencing and eventually extinguishing, but without a clear cut-off point where it definitely stops being Talana and starts being The Other.
Raze might have a better idea, he tends to notice things and I tend to... well, not.
Edit: though it always occurred to me that when you meet The Other, it's their voice that you heard right from the beginning. Did she and Talana really sound so similar? Okay, I know there weren't many VAs involved, but they could've still made them sound different, at least when you meet The Other in person. I think that's why I assumed that Talana had already died before you found her.
