"I will use my power to create a world which is free of prejudice. One where all people can live without fear of repression!"

Arvis is a very complex and well-written character. He's always been super interesting to me, especially with how well he fit into Kaga's theme for FE4 being how a man's mistakes could alter the world. He manages to be sympathetic and tragic while still being completely responsible for all the wreckage he'd wrought, and that produces a very, very dynamic character. Plus, fire mages are the coolest!
