The special dialogue for different MCs truly makes this one of the best books ever! 👏👏👏
One of the things I really like about the blades group is how they balance each other out. Each backstory can contrast and work with another characters. How they are divided up in future quests can help mc with their moral compass and how they view the world they too are exploring.
Mal is an orphan who grew up in Whitetower and had a very harsh life. We learned he spent time on the street fighting to survive and because of that he has a pretty jaded view of the world. Nia is also an orphan from Whitetower, but her life was sheltered leading her to have a really rose-colored view of the world.
Tyril is a member of the elven nobility and is on a quest to restore his honor as well as defeat the Shadow Court. Everything he is doing is from a deep place of honor and duty. Imtura is a member of the orc nobility and doesn’t care to live up to what her mother considers honor and wants to forge her own path as a pirate captain.
Tyril and Nia work together because of their sheltered upbringings (Nia as a priestess and Tyril being solely in the north), they look at their new situation with not a lot of experience. They are learning about the world around them as they explore with the party.
Mal and Imtura are the newest bond so I haven’t seen much, but they so far have bonded over the love of adventure. Imtura is a pirate and Mal fancies himself a grand adventurer. They each seem to have their own code and would rather enjoy a good tavern meal and cheap ale than the finer things in life.
the fact that convincing takeshi to apologize to jax was a free scene is already suspicious in itself, but now gaius appeared and interrupted JUST when he was about to talk to him…. i think something might happen to takeshi and if jax has to watch him get killed just after discovering he is alive…… i will riot
