Do you think Munakata gave power to everyone in S4? I can't seem to decide on this. It seems like there would have to be a ton of non-combat personal to help run such an organization and I don't see Munakata wanting to spread power if not needed, he would see it as not responsible. But yet it seems to be suggested that all blues have powers. Thoughts? Did secretaries and customer service reps, cooks, etc get powers too? Yayoi for example, I can't tell if she has them or not.
I feel like he probably would’ve given everyone power, if he didn’t then would those people even really be considered his clansmen? Munakata seems to have handpicked many of Scepter 4’s members himself – we see in DOB, where he specifically recruits even someone like Kamo who was a chef before joining Scepter 4 – and I doubt he’d go to the trouble of picking someone to join only to not give them any powers at all. Actually considering how most of Scepter 4 uses their powers I could see him still giving everyone some power without it being reckless, at least in Munakata’s eyes – first, he handpicked all his people so he probably focused on personality types who he believes will obey his wishes and not use their powers recklessly or to cause unrest. And second, it seems like for the most part the sword is needed in order to use the Blue aura, I think Fushimi’s the only one we really see use it without channeling it through his saber (the shield he makes with his knives when he saves Awashima from Mikoto’s flames) and Fushimi’s somewhat of a special case, since he had Red powers before and probably knows more how to control his. Assuming Scepter 4’s people can’t use their powers without drawing their swords Munakata could then give power to people like secretaries and non-combat personnel and they still wouldn’t be able to do much, like I imagine he’d probably want to at least train all his people in defensive techniques just in case but for the most part the only people who even know how to use their powers offensively are the ones who need to like the swordsman troops. This way everyone gets to feel part of the clan and there’s no resentment over some people having powers and others not, and Munakata personally attends to each department to be sure they have just enough knowledge on how to use their power as they need for their specific role in the organization.
