What do you think of Fou as a character?
While being a mascot character, in the first story arc he had more significance. However, in the second story arc he’s reduced to just a mascot again.
While there are some scenes that I think he works well in (such as being aggressive towards a certain character in the prologue, as well as when he’s used for comedy), but at other times it seems he’s just being inserted into conversations to remind us that he exists. For example, Goredolf is explaining the history/lore of Scandinavia and Fou just randomly says something and the conversation continues. What is the point of inserting that without any kind of actual interaction with Fou, either comically or foreshadowing?
Personally I’m hoping he regains power and helps us out at some point later on, maybe even becoming a servant (I mean, if they’re bringing in ORT, might as well bring in its competitor for most efficient human killing, Primate Murder). Or if they don’t do that, at least use him for comedy when bringing him into conversations, don’t just insert him for no reason.
Anyway, those are my thoughts, let me know what you think of Fou in general and how you think he should be used in the story.
