"There are things you can't fight. Acts of God. You see a
hurricane coming, you get out of the way. But when
you're in a Jaeger, suddenly, you can fight the hurricane.

Raleigh Samson: former Knight-Templar, lyrium addict, General of the Red Templars, Corypheus’ right hand […]
It’s really telling how the fandom still views addicts and addiction when it’s consistently added to a list of Samson’s flaws or crimes, yet never listed for any other templar.
Greagoir is a lyrium addict. Ser Barris is a lyrium addict. Meredith was a lyrium addict. Thrask was a lyrium addict. Rylen is a lyrium addict. Every single southern Templar is a lyrium addict. Every. Single. One.
Addiction is not a crime and it’s not a character flaw.
