So, hey, Parkour back with another random thread and I thought this would be a pretty interesting concept. So, I decided to discuss the fatal flaws of every Wings of Fire protagonist. What is a fatal flaw, you ask? It's a concept from Rick Riordan books (Percy Jackson, Kane Chronicles, Magnus Chase, etc), but I'm too lazy to put it in my own words so I'll just give you the description from Riordan Wiki:
Fatal Flaws are mental or physical weaknesses that demigods, humans, and immortals possess. These flaws can often cause the downfall of the being, but are particularly dangerous to demigods. In Greek plays, they are often referred to as 'Tragic Flaws'.
So, yeah, I thought this could be applied to Wings of Fire as well so I decided to ask you what are you guy's opinions on this? I guess I should start with an example of my own.
- Darkstalker: His fatal flaws are hubris and excessive wrath. He thinks he can do anything better than everyone, and shape the world as exactly as he sees fit without even considering other's views. His animus powers along with his ability to read other's minds and tell the future made him egocentric and arrogant, causing him to believe that he had a free pass to manipulate others and even changing their free will, believing he was doing the right thing, but he was in fact unable to see what was morally right or wrong. He makes decisions for others on several occasions no matter what they want. Darkstalker was also vindictive - he always spited Arctic, but after Foeslayer died, the enmity between them got bigger and bigger and when Arctic tried to kidnap Whiteout and sell out the tribe, Darkstalker forced Arctic to kill himself brutally without any remorse, solely believing he was justified without considering any other options. He also held a grudge against Fathom after all this time, despising Turtle just because he resembled him and tried to wipe out the entire IceWings thousands of years after the reign of Queen Diamond and when they had nothing to do with Foeslayer. Darkstalker's anger blinded him so much that even his closest friends turned against him.
1: I don't really give a crap about how much you hate a character, but don't say something like "Tsunami is such a b****" or "Moon is an a**h***" or anything along that line. This is purely opinion and theory-based, but using profanity and slurs to hate on a fictional character is uncalled for and if you want to do that, go to Wattpad or the dark web for all I care, but this isn't the place for that.
2: Please do not get off-topic in this thread or bring up something completely unrelated to this discussion. I'm okay with getting a little off-topic but if you deliberately spam meaningless comments into this thread for no valid reason, you will be reported to a staff member.
3: Please give a valid reason for your reason for a fatal flaw, not something like "Moon is a bully or a Mary Sue". If you truly think that, at least give a valid reason for thinking so. this is a dragon discussion thread, not a mental health hotline.
4: Have common sense.
5: Respect other user's opinions. If you think there's a flaw in another user's argument, feel free to point it out, but do it in a respectful way because in the Internet, other users could get pissed for the littlest conflict possible, leading to unneeded drama and turning this into a rage thread. Basically, don't say something like "OMG that's so wrong. Glory is such a good character and Moon is a Mary Sue, your opinion is wrong and you should delete your comment." If you do something like that, what'll likely happen is that your comment will likely get deleted instead.
6: All normal wiki rules apply.
