I have this angsty headcanon that prussia actually is a little resentful about his childhood. Right from the moment he was born they shoved a sword into his hand, gave him a cross, pointed him in one direction after another, and told him that he was doing God’s work. Nations don’t get normal childhoods, but even among them prussia’s upbringing seems unique. After growing up and having raised a child himself, I hc he can’t help but be a bit angry becase he’s starting to realize that he never had much of a chance at another life. He didn’t even have a steady roof over his head until adulthood. And he knows better than to dwell on the bad stuff, but it catches up to him. He knows that, as a nation, he doesn’t exactly get much of a say in which direction his life takes, but sometimes he wonders if maybe he wouldn’t be a dead man walking if anyone had shown him how to be, or even let him try to be, anything other than a “soldier of god” back then.
