Or is she?

Physically, at least, I'm pretty sure she is.
Spiritually, however, that's another question... one I hope the writers will answer eventually.

As long as it isn't as weird or ambiguous as how they answered Dunklezhan's "death".

Been toying with a scenario where Ysrthgrathe is literally pulling a Harlequin and putting together a runner team to go retrieve her wayward soul via a metaplanar jaunt, because while he is still a Horror Prick he has a soft spot for Aina and wants her back in the game.
Plus he knows it will grate on her nerves to no end knowing that he had aided her so.

He would do it himself, but something is interfering with his link to Aina.  He can still sense her, but not much more, so he is looking to use some tracking magicks.
Plus he suspects she may be in realms that he won't be able to enter himself.
While he can't enter the physical realm at present, he can still yank on the strings of one of his puppets to have them handle recruiting and organizing the runners. 

Of course this will not go unnoticed by certain parties, especially when the runners raid the property she left to Harlequin who had left it pretty much exactly the way she left it as a tribute to her memory.  Hilarity is sure to follow and the runners may need to think and talk quick on their feet to make the best of the situation.

I've been playing with the idea that she knew her actions at the rift would end her life, and sacrificed herself deliberately to free herself from Yrsgrathe for good. I like to think her actions caused her to transform into something, and Harlequin would very much like to know what that something is.

Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

A clutch of Dragons - "The Things we do for love" part two ( page 149 ) certainly adds to this idea that we haven't heard the last of Aina, i just hope they actually pick up on it at some point.

While I haven't read A Clutch of Dragons, am I right to assume that Aina is a dragon?

Aina Dupree was (is?) an Immortal Elf, not a Dragon. 
Would you want to go into a place where the resident had a drum-fed shotgun and can see in the dark?

Thank you for clarifying that info for me.  I always thought that she was an elf, but I wasn't completely sure.

If you are watching the skies, you won't see her. If you are looking elsewhere, though... you may have seen her already.
