Not to rain on anyone’s parade but remember that this man, this dreamboat bishounen you all fan over, is a tyrant and a dictator. He didn’t hesitate to throw Kaisar in jail and to pit him against Azazel in a fight solely for his amusement. He also threw Jeanne in jail. He has no respect or regards for anyone (maybe for Nina only). If he did, he wouldn’t have destroyed Cocytus, desecrate the shrines of the gods, start a war with them (he could have stand down but no) and built some super weapon in the
super secret basement prison and told soldiers to hunt down Jeanne and El. He didn’t let those three go because he didn’t want them dead. He let them go because he knows he can hunt them down again easily.
I get that you all love him but don’t forget this darker, malevolent side of him.
