Hello All. Wow it's been a minute since I've been on this site. Last time I was here BBS had just come out lol. I'm honestly surprised I still remembered how to log in. Anywho down to business...
For right or wrong forgiveness seems to be a theme in this series. I mean even goddamn Xehanort got to go to KH heaven with the man he murdered.
I think some people's unease with Isa sitting there with them is that, minus the Xehanort physical influence of his eyes and ears, he still looks like Saix. This is a a man that has been douchey in every game he has appeared in except this one.
However,nobodies are pretty much severely twisted versions of their human selves. Their default is a lack of a conscious.
Also he never truly had a chance because I could have sworn he had the biggest monster in the series horcrux inside him for 12 years to the point he was taking on his features. Basically he had the odds stacked against him from the get go. He tried to fight back in this game though, and yet Xehanort's reign on him is still powerful enough that he had to do it behind the scenes and with the help from others.
Also Saix wasn't sitting on that clocktower nor was he at Destiny Island. Isa was.
Therefore I'm completely fine with Isa being friends with them because he's a victim himself. They were all clearly good people in BBS and then suddenly their evil. What changed? Oh that's right their freaking hearts are gone i.e. their conscious. Look at the difference a heart does for Ienzo for example. Zexion was simply an abomination of him. That is what lacking a conscious does.
Also should I blame Terra for what Xenmas did?
Basically I'm not in favor of atonement being out of Isa's reach just because of what his nobody did.
This also goes for the others as well.
Allllll of this. Some people acting like Saix was Xehanort's twin or something.
Both Roxas and Xion were visibly saddened by his 'death', and also were there to witness his moment of humanity with his former bestfriend and their present one Lea. He is also strongly implied to have helped in their resurrections. They also smiled at him when he gave them seasalt ice cream and he them. Yea, I think he's forgiven. Riku, Ienzo, Even, Ansem The Wise, etc all got to atone,but it's out of the question for Isa. Why?
I also want to point out that Riku and Ansem were completely human when they did their evil deeds. Consciousness intact and everything. Isa was not and hadn't been for a long time.
So yea I'm firmly on the RAXI train and wouldn't have it any other way.
