People act like its so easy for the Nohr sibs to hear that their father is a bad guy and prop this up as the reason conquest sucks in regards to birthright when its really not that simple.
Sure, us as the basically omniscient player on the outside of the screen know this, but the Nohr sibs dont want to believe that the once good man there father was is gone- especially Xander.
He follows his fathers orders everyday without question knowing that hes hurting others and doing despicable things- in his words, “things that tortured my soul”. Heres a man old enough to remember the good that Garon did for Nohr to the point that Xander at one point in time was terrified to talk to his father- and you want him to believe that his idol, who he looked up to basically all his life, isn’t present in his father any longer.
He spends all of Conquest doing this, and then, when he realizes that his father can’t be saved and that you’ve been right all along, hes the first one to TAKE AN ATTACK FOR YOU from him while everyones still stunned.
TLDR; stop saying stuff like the Nohr sibs are bad because they didnt take down their father the first chance they got and that Conquests plot was useless when it makes sense.
