What do you think about Chaol? Do you like him?
I’m on the fence about Chaol. I don’t HATE him. But I don’t LOVE him. Obviously he needs to get rid of his prejudice against Faes and witches and all magical beings. And there’s just something about his honor, it gets in the way. There’s this amazing post on it, and it sucks that I can’t find it because it really sums up my feelings about him.
“You can’t pick and choose what parts of her to love” Really just says everything. Chaol wants to pick Aelin apart and choose whatever fancies him and whatever doesn’t he doesnt want to be there. That’s not how it works.
I only just barely like Chaol because he’s a reminder of all the humans the characters are working so hard to save. I think a sprinkle of human is good for the soul. Chaol is like a sprinkle of salt on a wound, because he’s really salty.
