I haven’t played the episode yet, but I actually don’t feel too upset that Leiftan lied about his race?
I mean do I like being lied to? No.
Do I like how violent he was being with the lady in the prison? Fuck no.
But considering how much there is a bad stigma around the Demons (to the point where they are killed just for existing), I can understand why he wouldn’t want to announce his race to the whole world? I mean his race is blamed for all of Eldarya’s failures. Maybe the people he grew up with were Demons too and killed just for that reason? Honestly I’d do the same in his place.
