Lysaer
« on: February 08, 2016, 05:36:40 PM »
I feel he changes his personality too much first he controlled his emotions on the Brine despite being provoked,than on the desert he was consumed with hate and not being provoked at all then as suddenly as the hate came to him  it goes again when he gets out of the desert. I'm hoping his personality swings is something to do with the new environment his found himself in.

Lysaer is interesting as he doesn't really get much time to develop before he is thrust into...certain things, and I mean, the desert bit...wouldn't you be a bit miffed in that situation?

Arithon gets way more 'screen-time' at the start, but he's such a mystery to everyone that it doesn't mean much. Lysaer seems a lot more straight forward (entitled, heir to a country, bit of a fop, brought up by his father to despise a man he has never met, living isolated from everything else) so it will be interesting to see how their relationship develops, I think...

Oh and @Eclipse, feel free to open discussion on the first couple of chapters when you are ready - I'm further ahead than you, but I will jump back to add some thoughts.  :)

@Eclipse, that's annoying me too. Not sure if it's bad character writing or, like @Idlewilder said, he's just a spoiled fop who never had to deal with situations like this.
I'm glad they're out of the desert now and are more of a "team" now. (Not really, but way better than before.)
