Yunan was killed by his very first King Candidate o.O He saw him grow up and the king saw Yunan grow into a young man. They shared adventures together and were probably the best of friends like Aladdin and Alibaba and then the King Candidate killed him.. I feel for Yunan so much now.
Of course he wants to hide away at the Great Rift, because that wasn’t all that happened, he saw similar cycles happening each time he came back as a Magi and every time he came back as a kid and every time the expression in his eyes grew duller and more emotionless because every time his Kings/Queen became either corrupted, were killed and every time Yunan blamed himself.
So he started to think that maybe he shouldn’t accompany his King Candidates and thus choose Sin out of duty but also knowing Sin would change the world but decided NOT to accompany him, hoping the same mistakes wouldn’t have to be repeated, that Sin would be the spark of hope in all the thousand years he lived.
He is an old man with a heart of gold, but the touch became cold and he is weary, tired and wants to rest but he also doesn’t want (headcanon) to pass on that burden to a new magi so he shoulders it on his own and comes back to a new life every time, no matter how hard it is going to be.
And it doesn’t become easier as time goes on, every single time it hurts more and Yunan becomes more depressed and continues to blame himself for it…
A thousand years and that man doesn’t know happiness because there were too many mistakes in his eyes, too much to still think of the few good things that maybe did happen..
And it explains why he suddenly became so afraid and sad in front of Alibaba, asking, trying to receive confirmation from a boy, that Sin did indeed great things and that he changed the world for the better. He wants the confirmation that for once he made a good choice as a Magi and just maybe he can have some peace of mind and spend the rest of his days at the Rift until he can die in peace.

“I wonder what it’d be like to live there, and have servants, and valets. Oh, sure. People who tell you where to go and how to dress. That’s better than here. You’re always scraping for food and ducking the guards. You’re not free to make your own choices. Sometimes you feel so… You’re just… Trapped.”
I want Magi’s last arc erased. I want to smack Aladdin for showing my Sin that he was connected to a god. If only that didn’t have happened…Aladdin why This is also Sin’s own fault ofc, mostly…but…ugh why did he suddenly get so greedy? He always was… but greedy without a guarantee? I know the las 4 or 5 chapters were Sin-centric and that he did it in his own volition, but….after all I can’t accept this. Wasting his life like that. No. I can’t accept this.
