Ah, but what DOES it mean to be an Angel?

Pages like this are why I like to use donation drives to get through chunks of story quickly. I mean, I wouldn't cut this page completely out, but at the same time it's not terribly exciting.

Aah, there's that Disgaea vibe again. :)
Angels think Demons are evil, that's how they are stereotypically placed. Same goes vice versa. Demons think Angels are evil. Personally, I like Disgaea: Hour/Afternoon of Darkness/DS. :D I'm playing it for my 3rd time right now. :)
Reading this comic makes me happy, for some reason. I'm now no longer in a crummy mood. XD

Okay, so being an angel means to just kill demons, regardless of who they are or what they've done with their lives?

Raizy, one question, was Buwaro holding onto his pendant out of sub-concious actions... Or was he actually thinking of taking it off if needed to attack the Angel?

I just noticed how Kieri seems to pull his hand away from the pendant and into hers (sort off) and got a bit confused. :3
Reply
:iconraizy:
raizy Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2009
Nah, it's a subconscious thing. Even Buwaro knows that pulling off the pendant would result in everybody getting killed.

I'm not her, but I looked at it closely.

Kieri knows that if Buwaro's pendant is removed, he goes berserk.
Buwaro knows, but he's naive enough he doesn't think about it.
Kieri saw him go for the pendant, and probably just got a little nervous about it. She does very clearly move his hand away from it, I would assume to keep him from taking it off. For his protection.

That's my opinion, take it for what it's worth.

Buwaro's not stupid enough to think that taking off his pendant would ever be a good idea.

True. Leaves me to wonder, though, did he reach for it for any reason other than comfort...?
Even if you wanted to, don't answer, I'd rather find out in the story :meow:

I'm guessing it's for comfort, the pendant must remind him of his foster parent, the Angel, and his siblings.

I know I grabbed a bracelet I had once when I was a lot younger, I got scared out of my wits one night (home alone) and grabbed the bracelet right out of my wrist and into my hands. It was a present from a dear friend, so it comforted me -- even though I knew a bracelet of all things could never protect me. XD

Yeah, but would their actions be justifiable if they attacked someone who looks suspicious but wasn't bothering anything? Even though Buwaro's a demon, he wasn't hurting anything and was therefore "innocent."

Sorry for ranting ^^;

raizy Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2009
A loaded gun next to some school children isn't technically hurting anyone either, but you'd still want to remove the threat.

Now I'm not saying that this Angel is a good person for attacking Buwaro. I just want you to be able to see things from his perspective.

Good point. Sorry for my rants, that was just my mind at work ^^; I understand why the angel wants to attack Buwaro... being his mission and all. I like the design of the elder angel... he reminds me of Clint Eastwood.

-_- Come on guys, the angel guy isn't being evil. Remember angels and demons were on different sides of a war and hate each other. We all know Buwaro is nice and all with his pendant on, but this old angel guy doesn't. Give the guy a break. :p

I agree. XD
The old guy is just going by what he knows and has been thought since young.

Demons = Bloodthirsty things = need to kill 'em off

He'll probably change his mind... If he even allows his mind to open up. Hopefully he isn't of the stubborn and deaf kind. x.o

Assuming that a demon is evil is TOTALLY WRONG !!!!!!!!!111!

By the way, nice page. If I interpret it correctly Kieri seems to have overcome, or at least put aside the issue of what Buwaro is like without his pendant.

In all fairness the only not evil demons were raised by an angel. Pretty much all other demons are evil.

Not really... Remember Buwaro's dad (or mom was it, don't remember) when the little demons went close to the egg? He fought the Angel at first -- but only to protect his baby.

Once he realized none of them meant any harm he was even willing to give up his egg to them, and the egg was probably his only reason (sort to say) to stay alive.

Demons are just misunderstood. Yes, they are rowdy, and some even asses, but not all of them are evil -- raised or not by Angels.

At least in this comic.

What makes them look so bloodthirsty is probably their raising, many of them where born in an age of war -- where they were trained to kill their enemies: Angels.

Buwaro's "sister" was quite innocent when small, like all young ones, same with his brother. They're easy to mold into good or evil beings at that age, it just depends on their surroundings. Plus, different believes also play a factor.

What some might consider evil might not necessarily be evil to others.

Buwaro's dad tried to murder Iratu and Sakido. Darius saved their life.

Even if the egg was his only reason for living at that point, it's not like he had a choice. He was going to die regardless of Darius or anyone else's interference. The chance arose for his son to live rather than die alone, so Buwaro's dad went for it. There's no telling what Buwaro's dad would have done if he were healthy. People act differently when they're about to die.

Besides, as stated on the info page about Demons and by Sakido, Demons are naturally inclined towards aggression and violence (which is why Iratu and Sakido suggested killing baby Buwaro when he was a problem). They can be changed a bit with nurture, but really, out of all of Hell there's only been three Demons shown to receive this sort of care.

For all intents and purposes, Demons are bad news. Buwaro is special, but the Angel has no way to know this for sure. Better safe than sorry!

Well, I'd like to believe that there might be a hint of logic in their brain, at least. XD

Though I agree, given the conditions to be different the outcome could have been different.

Though, thinking back to that... Grim Reaper thingy (forgot his name) he didn't seemed too bad either... XDD
