So I was talking to @shirogaenes today and I realize something of a sort of vital importance? Well, not really… but its interesting. I always seen people make comparisons to Haggar/Zarkon using Sheith, and while I am not discrediting them it’s interesting theory to look into.
It is without a doubt that SHIRO in season 3 and 4 is acting odd, more aggressive, more… I don’t know, less Shiro he was in season 1 and 2? but what if he isn’t a clone per say? You guys remember the episode “Legend begins” right, where we saw the History of Haggar and Zarkon and how exposed they are to quintessence can alter things right?
You guys remember how sweet Honerva was?
How excited and eager she was but as time goes on the episode she becomes… obsessed to a point she snaps at everyone?
What if hear me out, this is what happens to Shiro? What if the druids/Haggar not only experimented on him for the arm but also exposed him to a lot of quintessence is the reason his hair is white?
If she can do this to her OWN cat, what makes you think she won’t inject it onto another species? What if the reason Shiro is acting odd, having weird “headaches” its because he is exposed to it again? Where Galra might have been injecting him with more but it’s not stable enough? I saw THIS post where it talks about how the black lion acquires a lot of energy to pilot yet Shiro fails to have it pick up easily as he did in season 1 as he does in season 4.
What if he just cannot turn black on in a sense because he is lacking power? The reason now he is reacting because he is trying to force it out to save everyone? His moods? Aside from having to re-live his trauma, could also be a factor for his lack of quintessence?
What if this whole Haggar/Zarkon parallel is going to match Sheith? What if Shiro is already slowly becoming Haggar without realizing it? He is working himself to keep his mind busy, to a point of likely exhaustion, which is why when he tried to pilot black in season 3, due to not fully recovering is the reason he couldn’t pilot her?
What if guys?
