To each of the Lions, what did you all think when you saw your current paladins for the first time?
Blue: I WAS SO EXCITED! DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW LONG I HAD TO WAIT FOR LANCE TO SHOW UP?
And I had so much fun scaring the crap outta everyone on their test drive hahaha
Yellow: I was actually a bit surprised. In a good way.
I mean, I knew he was coming, but he was a bit different than what I expected. And honestly? Hunk’s just the perfect fit. I wouldn’t have anyone else in the universe.
Green: I guess I was excited too. I could feel Pidge’s energy all the way from afar when they first landed on the planet to look for me.
I couldn’t care less if they’re small, or a girl. If anything, I was just so happy to finally have them with me! Their sense of adventure is contagious and they’re so smart!
Red: It’s a wonder why you’re all so open already on your first time. What’s that expression they use on internet…? “Ugh.” Yeah, ugh.
When I first saw Keith, I was like “Are you serious…?”. I think he was trying to use the same approach as Lance did to Blue, and that just doesn’t work for me, okay? But then he just opened the doors to outer space before even trying to think on anything else and it had me considering the possibility. Maybe he could actually handle piloting me and go with the flow, because you all know how I tend to act and move on my own a lot too. In the end, yeah, I had to admit he’s a good match for me.
Black: I’ll admit I was a bit more focused on the task ahead at first. I could sense the danger and knew we had to act immediately. So my first thought was like, “I hope this guy knows what he’s doing.”
I mean, of course I could sense his nature as well. I knew it was him. But I was a bit taken aback when I found out he had a prosthetic made by the Galra. My last experience with Galras wasn’t something pretty to remember… But Shiro has a sense of justice and loyalty you just don’t see anywhere else. He understands right from wrong, he understands what we’ve both been through. He is the perfect Black Paladin and I really hope it stays this way.
