  • How did Chronos befriend Crane?

    I leave for a couple of months and the forum becomes a ghost town. *sigh*

    Honestly I was super super busy with my studies. But hey...

    Chronos killed Crane's parents so I'm wondering how in the world are they apparently on good terms?

    And if A.C dies because of Ignis, I'm wondering how long can Crane handle Chronos' destructive fixation on reviving his parents? Petora's in love so she'll stick by Chronos. Fulger is questionable. Seriously at what point is all the mess with the evil door, Ignis going on a mass murder spree, Chronos working with Ignis is going to make someone rethink their allegiance to Chronos? I don't know what dark magic Chronos is messing with but at some point is this going to be too much?

    Is Crane sticking with Chronos because the alternatives are worse? Or maybe friendship? Or maybe Crane believes that Chronos is ultimately an good person?

    Really good discussion here.

    Let's not forget they're the standing Masters of Lightning and Time.

      Oh man have I got thoughts on this.

      But first off: welcome back!

      Second off: I really love the idea that Guildmaster Crane’s attitude towards and relationship with Chronos is one aptly described by the phrase “keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.” We know from A.C.’s oracles that Olliver is a human sympathizer and loved Iris, a human. In present time, based off the little event we see after maxing out A.C.’s relationship combined with the info from his oracles, we know that Olliver still fondly remembers Iris, and keeps fresh iris flowers in his home.

      Ok, so Chronos is part human/a human sympathizer as well despite his actions and guild policies, so one possibility is that the two are on good terms because Olliver actually supports his “ends justifies the means” plan (... whatever that plan is). I mean, as far as we know, he doesn’t know Chronos killed his parents. But I like the other possibility that Olliver is actually suspicious of Chronos. That unlike Fulgur and Petora, he isn’t involved in Chronos’ shady side dealings. Maybe he isn’t aware of Chronos’ plan at all and he’s just playing along with his guild policies to hide the fact that he’s a human sympathizer/to protect AC. Or maybe he is aware of it and is just playing along anyway to find out Chronos’ true goals. I recall vaguely that at some point, Petora is overheard telling Chronos something like “unlike him, you don’t have to convince me” and I’ve wondered if that’s about Crane.
