  1. The Deadlords the Grimleal use are 12 in number, use the same names and carry some of the Jugdral Holy Weapons. They're clearly meant to be related if IS wanted them to be a different set of undead just using the same name, why given them weapons from Jugdral? Why give them the same name at all? There's only ever 12 Deadlords on Jugdral, they predates the 12 Crusaders by nearly 200 years, implying that Loptyr could not produce more than 12. If he could, why would he not have an army of Deadlords? Undead are not hard to create in the Archanea universe. My theory is he had 12 Death Masks, so 12 Deadlords. And while the corpse changes, the Thanatophages in charge do not, which is why the name stays the same - it's for the mask placed on a corpse.
  2. I wonder how Loptyr and Forneus' knew each other, given this origin for the Risen - and therefore the Deadlords, as they were Risen in Awakening.
  3. Which Lord has the harshest backstory?

    Lucina easily. Warriors says she's about the same age as Chrom, and Grima was resurrected about 10 years prior to her going back in time, making her 9 at the oldest when her father died. Probably younger, as she had never played tag before she played it with Elise in Warriors and she's played few games in general. From her conversation with Rowan, we know her world was just a burned out husk when she left and that fighting battles back-to-back was incredibly common. From various other tidbits we get across Awakening and Fates, we know that there were frequent attempts to save people from the Risen, but they rarely managed to save people and that friends and neighbors would one day die and become Risen that would need to be put down. As far as Lucina knows, when she went back in time the only people left alive was her and her friends. She's an option so I voted for her, but she's not a Lord. Leif's probably the Lord with the harshest backstory.
  4. Grima after he resurrects in Awakening does, yeah. However, he doesn't in Shadows of Valentia, and there's a huge dragon skull that's probably his near Plegia Castle that indicates he didn't have the human face at the time of the First Exalt either. Which means that Grima's human face only came about after he resurrected himself by devouring the Lifeforce of the Plegian's gathered at the Dragon's Table whilst connected to a human host. They're wrong, and assume it was built by humans due to their biases. Unless Thabes predates the Golden Era of Dragons, then it can't have been a human civilisation, as Naga's death is 500 years before Archanea is established, and she died in Thabes. Which I found the source for, the perfect ending of Mystery gave a full timeline for the events on Archanea:
  5. Earth Dragons in Mystery of the Emblem take half damage from anyone who attacks them, which is what Dragonskin does. As Grima still has it here, but Duma, a Divine Dragon doesn't, it's clearly not something inherent to all powerful Dragons, so Grima's having it has to come from somewhere. As well, his origin prior to this game was that he was thought to be descended from Earth Dragons, so having his creator be an Earth Dragon means that information is still correct.
  6. Or Thabes was a city founded by dragons. They are the only ancient, advanced civilisation on Archanea we know of, which is the description of those who built Thabes. Forneus' workshop is sealed by a lesser version of the Shield of Seals and is guarded by a degenerated Fire Dragon, so dragons evidently had a hand in sealing his workshop, something explicitly done by the Council of Thabes. Plus, if Forneus was an Earth Dragon, adding his blood to the Creation explains Grima's Earth Dragon traits, like Dragonskin, and how Grima can be descended from Earth Dragons despite being created from Divine Dragon blood.
  7. Oculus and Ocular are described as Fell Dragon magic in their item description, at least in the English version. That's pretty much dark magic.
  8. Wasn't that a localisation only thing?
  9. Walhart: Walhart is great. He hates gods/dragons, he wanted to conquer the world in order to bring about world piece, and he's gloriously hammy. He works extremely well for what he is, a mostly unimportant filler villain. Lucina: Is also great. I enjoy the contrast between her seriousness about the future, and her awkwardness with everything else. She does everything well.
  10. So the first two are obviously Soren and Stefan, but is the the third Petrine? I can't think of another Branded in PoR apart from those three.
  11. Micaiah vs. Nohr Corrin (spoilers)

    No, but it should avoid aggravating Begnion. Like by say, ignoring a request for military aid?
  12. Micaiah vs. Nohr Corrin (spoilers)

    No, but the soldiers morale remained the same, despite the fact that they weren't fighting the race they're racist against, and wouldn't be getting the large bounty they get for killing Laguz. If she wants to change the racist attitudes, there kind of needs to be a country to change the attitudes of. Micaiah thinks that if she doesn't follow Pelleas' orders, the country won't pull together under Pelleas' rule, and that would lead to the collapse of the country. Which is probably true. And she's not participating in racism, she's leading her soldiers against enemy soldiers.
  13. Micaiah vs. Nohr Corrin (spoilers)

    Yes they were. The Daein army's morale remained just as high when fighting on Oribes Bridge, and when confronting the Apostle's Army in the southern mountains, as it was when fighting the Laguz in Begnion. And Micaiah, a woman who fought to break her country free from oppression, and spent so much time rebuilding it that she didn't return to her place of residence, should think that because the citizens are racist towards Laguz, the country doesn't deserve to exist? Micaiah doesn't know that in 3-6 though.
  14. Micaiah vs. Nohr Corrin (spoilers)

    Yes, because it isn't a sub-human hunt, it's a legitmate military campaign. Daein did not go "LOL we hate the sub-humans, let's go attack them!", Begnion asked for aid, and Daein elected to respond. The attitudes of Daein's soldiers towards enemy Laguz is irrelevant, since they're just as happy fighting the predominately Beorc-comprised Apostle's Army. And also because Daein would collapse as a country if she didn't.
  15. Micaiah vs. Nohr Corrin (spoilers)

    Because if she doesn't, she thinks Daein will collapse. The country that she took back from occupation and oppression, that she's put so much work into rebuilding would be gone. Plus, it's because she's doing her job as General of Daein's armies. Begnion asked for military aid, and Daein elected to answer. She has to lead them into battle in a legitimate military campaign. Just as she later fights against the Apostle's Army, which was comprised of more Beorc than Laguz. Or should she refuse, and let Daein tear itself apart, and have the country itself cease to be?
