Luke returns to Baticul and learns an important secret from Van.
Well nice to finally make it back to Baticul though there are plenty of concerns. There was something on that fon disk that forced Dist to risk attacking a ship with Van on it. Also Jade seemed deeply concerned about the data on that thing as well. Whatever it was clearly wonâ€™t be revealed by Jade for a little while. Dist though did surpass Arietta in how long he lasted and actually avoided capture. Though with him getting blasted away could almost see that being a recurring instance. His connection to Jade if anything should prove to be highly entertaining to watch.
We also go to see Luke glowing again and seems like heâ€™s getting more powerful with that blast. Probably one of the biggest revelations around this is Luke being kidnapped by Van and not Malkuth. That does fit nicely with what Jade said before about Malkuth not knowing about it, but it also raises a ton of questions. We can take Vanâ€™s word at face value that he kidnapped Luke to protect him from being used as a tool by the King. But at the same time this is something that was apparently said before Luke lost his memory and thus has doubts connected to it. But right now we donâ€™t have many other theories to fall back on. Guess weâ€™ll just keep an eye on Van and see if heâ€™s up to something or just looks really bad.
Still Luke is certainly fitting an importance of the main character with that story from the fon stone. Worry about that guys head since he forgot Ion talking about the meaning of his name and thus being completely confused with the complicated way they said â€œyou will be born.â€ I can understand the guy not wanting to do any more fighting after the mess he was just in. But thatâ€™s some attitude not caring about helping the people in trouble and only helping when they talked about him being called a hero. While I can understand where his personality has come from that certainly doesnâ€™t mean I like it all that much.
While things are going alright at the moment that doesnâ€™t mean there arenâ€™t problems. Questions are still hanging in the air about what Mohs is up to. Think Tear would pick up the ominous atmosphere that was in the air when she was talking to the guy. The movements of the God Generals are also something to wonder about. Why they arenâ€™t listening to Van who is supposed to be commanding them. Sure they could simply be on the side of Mohs but that doesnâ€™t really answer why they would listen to the guy. Assume that weâ€™ll start go get the major answers as the story continues along.
Still feel they are doing a good job advancing the story. Think at this rate they should be alright in finishing the series.
