To be fair, you need to have a high IQ to really understand Edelgard. Her personality is extremely nuanced, and without a solid grasp on political ideologies most of her ambitions will go over a typical player’s head. There’s also Edelgard’s reasons for starting the war, which are deftly woven into her characterisation and even more so explained in her heart-breaking backstory - her philosophy draws heavily from Rudyard Kipling’s literature, for instance. The true gamers understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of her character, to realise that it’s not only black and white - it says something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Edelgard truly ARE idiots - of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the reference in Edelgard’s existential phrase: “Must you continue to reconquer?,” which itself is a cryptic callback to Maeda’s Japanese epic Fates and Awakening. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those idiotic Dimitri stans hurting themselves in confusion as Yuki Ikeno’s genius wit unfolds itself on their Switch screens. What idiots… I bet they didn’t even play BEE.
And yes, by the way, i DO have an Edelgard roleplay account. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for true Edie appreciatiors only - and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.
