    bound

    Hi,

    I was reading a book then I came to this sentence :

    ugly beyond nightmares, utterly pitiless and bound totally to his mental orders.

    And I don't understand the meaning of bound here.

    Please help me with this word.

    Thank you

    Re: bound

    It's not a sentence as it has no main verb and doesn't begin with a capital letter. What came before it?

    What is the source of the quotation?

    Re: bound

    Are you sure it's not "mental disorders". "Mental orders" doesn't have a meaning.
    In any case, "bound" is the past tense and past participle of "bind".
