I think the reason I hate Rhea so much is because she seems so... flawless in all the routes besides Crimson Flower. Like, she did nothing wrong to deserve the hate El gives her. Then, in CF, she is made to be a total villain based on mostly lies or incomplete truths. So...

What if they made Rhea be a villain in her past, but have changed, or trying to change. Then, there would be a solid reason for picking either side.

I feel like you literally described what Rhea’s actual arc was like in the non-CF routes lol.

She tries to overwrite Byleth in every route, she is pretty corrupt (albeit for what she believes to be noble reasons) and pretty harsh in her approach to people.

I think she should have been playable and be able to support other characters so we could have learned more about her. Seteth and Flayn could have had some really good supports with her

She’s been ruling Fódlan by force, killing whoever she wants for 1,000+ years. Her made up an entire religion, rewrote history, lies about literally everything and does inhuman testing and attempts human sacrifice. How was she not already a villain in your mind?

Except she never tries to force that overwrite in the first place. Harsh? She's nice to people who deserve her kinder side. Anyone facing her harsh side, deserves it for doing something wrong.

I have yet to see anything that paints her as corrupt. Even her desire to bring back her mother is painted in a mostly positive light, since she lets the other homunculi live their lives if they fail to become Sothis. Also, it was either that or die a stillborn in Byleth's case.

By force? The only force she employs is against those who directly threaten or steal from the church. Criminals must be punished.

There is a reason Sothis emphasises Byleth’s agency and the experiment fails. Rhea was going to overwrite him. She was treating Byleth like his life was a loan.

Corrupt because that is what you are when execute people on trumped up charges.

Harsh because she orders executions rather that bothering to go into details about why people were behaving the way they did.

1.She never "killed whoever" she wanted.We literally see the only people she kills are nemesis,a known monster,and the western church,who attacked children and was willing to go to war with rhea due to dj thales.

2.Had she not lied,every crest bearer would essentially be murdered in their sleep or hung for the atrocity there ancestors committed(Dont Remember if she spared the other 10,or they were just killed off).

3.Her religion isn't exactly false as sothis does exist,and she has committed feats befitting the title of deity.

4.Her experiments were on herself,which would be self harm if anything,and each clone was allowed to live out their life if sothis wasn't resurrected.We know this because byleth wouldn't have existed otherwise(unless jeralt just banged rhea,but that's just weird)

5.Nothing suggested byleth would have been sacrificed at the altar.The worst that would have happened is him/her essentially becoming sothis(as in they just get to BE sothis).Unless you think seteth is suddenly on board for human sacrifice's,then thats on you.
