Wanted to do this for some reason. Might do another if this is popular enough and I can think of more words to call her.

I was thinking more "uncomfortable"

"I'mma make the empire great again! I got experimented on by the most cartoonishly evil villains so I'm teaming up with them to destroy the church and I KNOW I didn't stop my conquest once I HAD Rhea but I'm TOTALLY not doing it to take over the other nations I love you sensei"

Eugh. Check, please.

Villain, snake, hypocrite, & extremist are the ones that fit Edelgard. Hypocrite the most.

She's a villain because she attempts to kill other students at the academy, attempts to rob the academy, allows civilians to die, allows Jeralt to be killed, and conspires with TWSITD.

She's a snake because she uses a "Flame Emperor" disguise to initially fool everyone, never tells anyone else at the academy what she knows of TWSITD, declares war after ousting the previous Emperor, and sacrifices Bernadetta.

She's a hypocrite because she allows Demonic Beasts to be used by the Empire (despite supposedly being against Crests), allows noble families to remain in power out of convenient nepotism (once again; despite supposedly being against Crests), and never makes an active move against TWSITD until one of the endings (despite supposedly being their "enemy").

She's an extremist because she never tries diplomacy, she immediately declares war & attempts to kill anyone who gets in her way, and callously allows civilians to die due to her actions.

It's like you took the worst of bits of her actions then twisted them to make them even worse, mate. Did we play the same game?

Yes, we did.

Black Eagles/Crimson Flower is not the only route in the game, but it's the only route that pulls a veil over your eyes to blind you from Edelgard's true nature.

Same could be said of the same few users trying to make someone who's callous & conquest-thirsty look like the one-and-only hero.

the one thing that the other routes add about her is that she is a s***ty comander (she had everything in her favor and still lost). and that she is willing to use creststones on herself to transform if needed in order to fight.
