You think Ironwood will become a scapegoat for atlas?
I actually have given Ironwood, the Atlesian Military, and Atlas as a whole quite a bit of thought!
Cinder’s plan was to divide, not just our heroes, but the kingdoms. Following the disastrous events of volume 3, I believe Atlas will be generally mistrusted by the other kingdoms, Ironwood particularly.
These tensions might cause Atlas to draw back, and fold in on itself. Part of me envisions the province taking some dark turns. Perhaps under influence of Mr. Schnee. Who I like to call “Herr Schnee.” In fact, I’m kinda imagining some sort of ww2 dynamic between the kingdoms, and it might grow very dark.
(I mean, seriously, Herr Schnee. German inspired. A supposed racist against faunus. Supposedly mistreats them in his work force. I’m getting some serious Hitler vibes from the guy and we barely know anything about him.
And Ironwood too, may become some sort of villain perhaps. He’s been isolated and blamed, and is heavily mistrusted by all, most likely…
Yeah so this was a weird theory/rant. But yeah. I think Atlas as a whole and the people in it will be a BIG part of the upcoming volume!
‘Doppelganger’ is an old German word that referred to an apparition of a living person, e.g. the ‘ghost’ of your grandmother walking past you even though she isn’t dead. It was believed that meeting your own doppelganger was a sign of eminent death. Source
