Ashnard is a evil prick who was really an asshole through and through. He's literally a puppy kicker and a horrible, horrible man. I think he was just motivated by madness, as the Mad King would imply. Michalis is just a nationalist, though holding his little sister hostage to force his other sister to work under him was an awful thing. I don't Macedon was actually that bad though, as in actual state. He just wanted power. Zephiel hated humanity. He just wanted everyone dead and replaced with dragons. Reasonable considering his dad. I think the king is whatever he is, and I'm totally willing to be him. A guy who makes good points but is so smug and arrogant he comes off as someone you want to sock in the face. Still, he managed to organize an army to take over a continent...And is apparently succeeding at it. Somewhat. There's probably more than the King, he's an Arc 1 Big Bad it seems But if any of you guys think you got a better idea...well might as well execute it, because mines still pretty boring lol, he might have more depth but he's not as hammy as candy-stealing puppy kicker. And a lot less fun to kill.
