Blade and Soul episode 04
When talking about Aruka’s master, a powerful warrior that could fight off even the strongest opponent, you immediately start to think about some kind of huge demon with a huge sword or something like that. Never in a million years would I have thought about a tiny old man that looks like a cross between a goat and a dog with long ears.
So Aruka fell off that cliff and she got saved by new characters. How predictable. Of course, the pattern still wasn’t completely at that point. Oh no. She had to befriend those characters, two poor children that had no parents, first before tragedy could befall them. That’s when that little boy started messing around with Aruka’s sword when she was still unconscious. He killed, robbed and threatened many people during that time, only to find out that people had come looking for him. That’s when the pattern became fully visible once again.
Aruka tried her best to save that young man, but she was too late. He was shot and died on the spot. Aruka, at least, slit their throats to avenge the little warrior. That’s just how it seems to go, isn’t it? Aruka somehow meets new characters, befriends them and ends up killing more and more enemies in the end because of them.
Is Aruka strong now? Has she gained some kind of new strength after falling prey to Varel’s dark powers? Do not be surprised if she has. There’s a good reason why her clan was so important before they were all wiped out. I just want to see something different. Something that doesn’t follow the exactly same pattern… That’s all I want at this point.
