Apocryphos: Slayer or Saviour?
After Leverrier he’s the #1 most hated character in DGM. A strange double standard: it is certain that Neah would erase Allen’s existence, yet people like him. In Apocryhpos’s case we aren’t even sure what he exactly intends to do with Allen, since there are mixed signs.
First he promises that Allen won’t be executed, then that he’d heal Allen, because the Heart is worried about him.
But as one can imagine, being touched by an Innocence when you’re turning into a Noah it hurts like hell. But still, the Cardinal didn’t kill him on spot despite him showing the signs of transforming. (On that thought, it’s pretty suspicious to me, that he starts turning when he thinks about trying to become allies with the 14th). He looks at Allen fondly and even compliments him.
One, as in he forces Allen to synchronize with him - just like Kanda later confirmed. But then arises the problem, that he is the one behind Cross Marian’s doubtful murder. The “healing” itself works,since the gray colour retreats.
And then Allen attacks him. And here comes the contradiction:
In another, maybe more fitting translation for this scenario:
Japanese is a beautiful language, but it’s hard to translate. But it’s most likely the second option:
So maybe that’s the fan’s problem that he wants to trap Neah-pon. Still, I think he really would like to help Allen, it’s just Allen can’t accept the fact that he killed(?) Cross and is most likely concenred that Apo-ko would use his firends to achieve his goal.
Another hint may be the 24th volume’s omake: Hoshino described him as an immature Innocence-stalker who’s obsessed with Allen. Actual canon: “You always do everything together with MY Allen. Meals with Allen. Baths
with Allen. Snacks with Allen. Playing with Allen. Every day without
exception, that flashy, gaudy golden body polishes itself against Allen.
With Allen with Allen with Allen with Allen with Allen with Allen with
I’m not kidding, this was seriously in the 24th volume. He’s jealous of Timcampy for being with Allen. But the reason he destroyed Tim, was becauseTim isan ally of the 14th. And Apo hates the 14th, because he’s a Noah and wants to erode Allen. There’s also a picture where Apo is stalking Allen who’s drinking tea.
So, in the end, I think he’s really just trying to help, its just Allen doesn’t want to accept help from someone who “killed” Cross, Link and then TImcampy.
