TheDarkHearted: She's been captured? good. let her have a taste of what Thales felt when he held in Eckstedt.
She always acted like Thales was having a good time been a prisoner.Kingdom's Bloodline · C536
KiriHakai: Somehow, I think I can understand Kessel's displeasure this time. Thales really messed up their plans. He didn't intend to do so, but he still trashed everything they planned, from the beginning to the end. It would have been fine if that was all he did but, he somehow found a way to create rumors of an internal conflict in the Royal family. After everything he did in the North you would expect him to understand the complexity of the relationship between the Kings and the nobles and his position on the chessboard but in the name of curiosity and "freedom" he forgot his role. Yep, Thales is an exceptional troublemaker and Kessel is always cleaning behind. He would truly be dead by now if not for daddy cleaning his mess.
Although Kessel's way of treating Thales is plainly wrong, he can't be blamed for it. In the first place, their relationship was already twisted from the beginning. With all the mystery surrounding his mother and the circumstances of his birth, they are not really your common father and son pair.Kingdom's Bloodline · C510
Noalein: I've decided: Kessel and Morat and his department got it all wrong, they are not cleaning up Thales' messes - Thales is cleaing up their messes, because they started it with all the plans and secrets. If there were no plans in the first place, there would be no plans to 'ruin'. (And no, I don't care that I'm totally picking sides xD)Kingdom's Bloodline · C510
Cherrygod: The original commenter never said anything about dropping it if there was a "gay character" he just simply didnt want it to be yaoi which would be assumed to have gay content involving the main character. As a reader i myself and many others invision or immerse themselves as the main character, having the mc as gay ruins the experience simply because we arent gay it has nothing to do with being a homophobe. Again it is simply preference. A story can be absolutely amazing, mindthrillingly awesome but as an immersive reader having just any flaw with whoever i am immersing as ruins every intention on enjoying said storyA World Worth Protecting
Cherrygod: Did this guy just basically say "if you dont read yaoi you a homophobe" theres a word out there called preference my dude, straight men typically "PREFER" not to read yaoi doesnt make them a homophope, they can read it just fine theres no "fear" its just not their thing. You needa chill before bringing up the dictionary every commentA World Worth Protecting
Kailour: The translator doesn't add the tags, those are mostly added by homophobic readers such as yourself that likely saw a joke within the novel about someone being gay, got so absolutely terrified by the thought of a gay person existing that they immediately dropped the novel, and then added that tag.A World Worth Protecting

Feliprins1: What really drives the history home for me is that attention to detail, its the amount of thought put into almost every action that happens in this book (even if sometimes it gets repetitive, some people overanalize things and some seem to be forgetful too many times just to get an explaination with exposition)Kingdom's Bloodline · C474
Avocadoese: If even straight people don’t like harems, imagine yours truly!!! I don’t even read gay harems, why the fuxk would I like dumb ****ty harem where 999 girls jump all over you.. I want real cultivation stories like Er Gen! Or comedy like the strongest system! Hmph..Omnipotent Sage
NCTDREAM: TDG's harem annoyed me from the second he added the 2nd lady because throughout the whole novel he claimed he was only in love with one lady and no one could compare or change that and he was so set on her only to add a second because his girl pitied the 2nd chick????Omnipotent Sage

Lebrew: Raphael has not betrayed his friends, and you thinking that he potentially could have done it does not mean he is as bad as Kroesh. No court in the modern world will judge someone for being assumed to be able to commit a crime, with no evidence or history to support it. "He is a spy so he must be a bad person" is not a good argument.
I do not think having a cause makes you unable to commit evil acts. There are plenty of people in our own history that have commit absolutely atrocious acts, but thought that they were in the right the entire time, because their "cause" justified their means. Just look at Israel for example. Both sides have a reasonable claim on the land, they could not reach an agreement, so they started to fight, both sides with a "cause". Does this make suicide bombing okay? Does this make car bombs and rockets that target civilians okay? Of course not! Fanatical nutjobs that target innocent people in order to reach their goals are clearly not good people, even if their "cause" is a good one.
Have you read Berserk? There is a character called Griffith, and I would liken Kroesh to this character. They both have friends that they care about, and that deeply care about them, yet they are both willing to cause absolutely horrible, atrocious things to happen to these friends for the sake of their ambition. They both betray people who wish them nothing but good, and they do so while using the friendship as the catalyst of this absolutely disgusting betrayal.
What separates good from evil is not the ends that you are trying to reach, but the means you use to reach them. Everyone believes that their "cause" is a correct one, so whether a "cause" is right or wrong is just a matter of opinion. The constants are the ways people attempt to reach their goals, and this is what separates good from evil. What if Kroesh had a more sinister goal, like killing the Noble that drugged her? Would it be okay for her to betray her friends then? She could be just as invested in this as her current cause, so your argument about putting the cause above your friends and relations still counts.
A religious fanatic that blows up a children's hospital might have an extremely good cause, like him thinking that sending the children to heaven early protects them from sinning later in life. If ends justify the means, then this person is a saint that should revered.Kingdom's Bloodline · C260
Lebrew: I label her as a bad person, because i would summarize her involvement like this: Lampard needs Miranda as a hostage to peacefully conquer northland, so he accepts Kroesh into his service, on the premise that she will use their friendship to lure Miranda to Eckstedt. She fakes an injury, and cooperates with Kaslan to trick the tower, a neutral organization, into sending Kohen and Miranda, and use her presumed injury to make sure that they come. They come and show great worry and care for her, and Kroesh then proceeds to lie to their faces, and sends them into what can be called nothing other than a deathtrap. She uses the fact that they care for her as a tactical advantage. Its like waving a white flag, and then attack as the enemy comes to accept the surrender. Or call for medical assistance for the civilian population, and then kill the doctors.
What she is doing is not a "tactical maneuver" or some sort of ingenious ruse. It is not Kroesh being resourceful or smart. She is being evil, she is taking advantage of the goodness in others. Everyone has goals and ambitions. Everyone has dreams that they want to pursue. If everyone did what Kroesh did, the world would be a burning wasteland with no life left, because everyone had no bottom line and discarded basic human decency in order to achieve their goals. Evil people take advantage of human virtues, and punish people for being decent human beings.
If she chose to cut the ties with her friends, that would have been perfectly fine with me. She has her ambition, they have theirs, and they would meet on the battlefield. This would have been fine. However, Kroesh did not do this. She used their ties as a rope, to create a noose for Kohen and Miranda. Raphael is an infinetely better person, because he does not pretend to still be on their side. He tells them to run, and had no involvement in Kohen and Miranda coming to Eckstedt. He tries to cut his ties with them so that he can fulfill his revenge without endangering them, because he knows that they would try to help him if he told them the truth.
Kroesh is someone who has been broken and disillusioned by her traumatic experiences, and it has made her a twisted person that is so blinded by her cause that she has become someone willing and capable of evil. It is understandable that she would become so fixated as a psychological defense-mechanism, and while tragic, this does not change that she is a "bad person" in her current state.Kingdom's Bloodline · C260
Lebrew: I would agree if not for the fact that Kroesh pretended to be injured by disaster sword, and used their friendship as leverage to make sure that Kohen and Miranda would go to Eckstedt's capital. She used the name of The Tower, a neutral organization created for the sake of mankind, to trick them into a political conflict, in which they had no prior direct involvement. And do not get me wrong, I very much agree that this is a war of survival between two nations, and you can not really say that one side is right and one side is wrong, but this does not mean that basic human decency should not be exercised.
Lampard is clearly in the right for wanting to lead Eckstedt out of its current old and stale form of governance, and Kroesh is right in that women are heavily discriminated against and need a revolution, but this is not the issue I am addressing. Kohen and Miranda came to Eckstedt not as representatives of their country, but as agents from The Tower, under the pretense of stopping a dangerous terrorist organization. They were neutral, similar to our world when UN sends in peace keeping forces. If a nation attacks the peace keeping forces or uses them as leverage, it would be an international outrage. Kroesh used her identity as a member of the tower as a means of furthering a political plot, and this is a huge slap in the face of all of humanity. The Tower is supposed to be a gathering point for humanity, where nations and ethnicity are put aside for the good of all, and what Kroesh is doing is one of the sure-fire ways of destroying this wonderful organization.
And ignoring the bigger picture and political stuff, they were friends, as seen when both Kohen and Miranda are outraged when they learn of Kroesh and her pretended injury. They trust her, and care about her well being. If they met on the battlefield and decided to fight because they were on different sides, I would consider Kroesh no worse than anyone else. But the heart of the matter is, she stabbed her friends in the back, she misused their trust, took advantage of their bonds, and used friendship as a tool to ultimately condemn people who regarded her as a close friend to death or worse. Miranda and Kohen had no negative intentions towards Kroesh, and in fact they just wanted to help her, or at least avenge her, and that is why I call them innocent. The primary reason they came to Eckstedt was because of Kroesh, so there is no uncertainty here. She betrayed them. Regardless of their nationalities, creeds, ideologies or whatever other reasoning you might have, she tries to cause death and harm to people who only showed her love and companionship. Taking advantage of your friends in such a way is far bellow the bottom line of what i would consider a good person.Kingdom's Bloodline · C260
TheDarkHearted: A feminist?Kingdom's Bloodline · C260
Lebrew: While Kroesh has a just cause, and a pitiful backstory, I believe she has strayed of the right path. She is correct that women are treated very badly, and that a revolution is necessary, but is this still enough reason to throw every other moral to the wind?
She betrayed the tower, an organization that seemingly treats women and men equally, which works solely for humanity's survival and tries to avoid politics. Furthermore she betrayed Kohen and Miranda, plotting to have Kohen executed for the murder of Nuven, and Miranda turned into a puppet to control Arunde territory. Miranda is a strong woman that would become a female archduke, but instead she would become the thing Kroesh is trying to remove, a woman used solely for her bloodline as a political tool. And regarding Kohen, while he is described as being a bit stupid, he is a good person that is from a family that teaches that the lord is responsible for their subjects, and would probably grow to be a positive influence.
Kroesh sees her own cause as the only important one, and falls into the trap of thinking that the ends justify the means. She wants to become a symbol for women, but she has dirtied herself with betrayal and the sins of nobles, so even if she wants to be a symbol, she is no longer suited to be one.
If she wanted to be a symbol for women, she should have been a good example, and aspired to be a just and competent person. Why should women have a person capable of betraying their friends and their morals as an ideal? It only shows that women have to compromise being a good person in order to compete with men, and that sends bad signals.
She is someone who is willing to betray the trust of others and throw good, innocent people into the fire to reach her ideals. No matter how "right" or "correct" her ideals are, i can not call her a good person.Kingdom's Bloodline · C260
