Here’s a Samara portrait. She’s def one of my faves from the Mass Effect trilogy, and I loved her story arc, being torn between her duty as a justicar and the unconditional motherly love she held for her daughters.
Name: Clayton Age: 17-18 🖋 He is Lawrence Blewer’s fag when introduced. 🖋 Ciel becomes his fag to better access information about the P4. 🖋 Clayton is one of the few characters with glasses in Black Butler that actually cannot see whatsoever without them. 🖋 He hazes Ciel upon his arrival at Weston. 🖋 Before Ciel becomes a fag, he earns prestige from Clayton for his impressive work cleaning the dining hall. 🖋 Despite his vicious attitude towards incoming students of his house, he only behaves cordially and polite in the company of Lawrence Blewer. 🖋 He seems to exhibit a sadistic streak, as emphasized by his tormenting/hazing of Ciel. 🖋 He is fond of Sebastian’s cooking. 🖋 When the P4 is talking about Ciel, Clayton praises him for his work ethic and domestic skills. 🖋 Clayton joins the Phantom Five for the sake of Weston’s honor. 🖋 Clayton’s role in the Phantom Five is that of a level-headed intellectual. 🖋 He is shown to get along remarkably well with the other members of the group, implying he has become more empathetic. 🖋 He becomes the Sapphire Owl prefect. 🖋 As Cheslock notes, Clayton’s transformation is the most significant out of the Phanton 5. 🖋 Many fans note that his appearance on stage is remarkably similar to Sebastian’s.
because of that post imma talk about roy fucking mustang. truth is, roy in 2003 aint one of my faves, and I definitely prefer his personality in BH. BUT his arc in 2003 is absolutely wonderful and i’m gonna talk about it.
his goal is pretty much the same: he wants to get to the top and be fuhrer so that he can turn the country around. more specifically to his 2003 incarnation however, it’s so that he doesn’t have to listen to bad orders again (as opposed to BH roy’s much more idealistic and noble reasoning). but here’s the thing: BH definitely focuses too much on the military’s “i was just following orders and the audience should feel bad for me” bit. with Roy’s goal being “to never have to follow orders again,” it makes his sacrifice at the end turn the “i was only following orders” thing around. he realizes that he was to blame for not taking action.
because he realizes that he has been complacent and cowardly, and sacrifices his goals to atone for the people he didn’t save. his monologue is along the lines of “i couldnt stand being blind this long” (lmao BH irony). ed is like “you’re going to avenge hughes, aren’t you” and whatever roy said back was a supporter of the 2003 “theres a whole world outside of us and our dreams” theme. he very much is doing this to avenge hughes, but more importantly, everyone else who has suffered because of bradley fucking up the country. it’s not vengeance motivating him. He’s making up for his mistakes and is prepared to deal with the consequences in doing the right thing.
