Mithrax,[spoiler] Kell of Kells[/spoiler]

Just read the title and tell me your thoughts, I will say this if you don't want to be spoiled majorly about stuff at end of the season leave now. Come back when the season ends. If you don't mind being spoiled here is the spoiler: [b]Saint 14 actually says in the final under the endless night lore tab, he calls Mithrax Kell of Kells[/b] If you believed Mithrax to be Kell of Kells before hearing this spoiler then please tell me your thoughts, if you are wowed by this spoiler then cool, your thoughts as well. If you didn't heed my warning and are now pissed off. I tried to warn you that there would be a major spoiler, so don't get mad when I gave you ample warning. Either way still put your thoughts below.

    Actually I had that thought occur to me a few weeks ago. In Eliksni lore, The Kell of Kells is clearly a messianic figure. However, we've been seing the same conflict as to how that prophecy was to be interpreted as we've had in Judaism and now in Christianity as to what kind of figure the Messiah truly is. In the time of Jesus, many Jews felt that the Messiah would be a King David type figure. A King and military leader who would lead Israel to victory of their enemies. Yet one can argue that Jesus and His message of Peace played a pivotal role in "defeating" the Roman Empire from within..and then using the remains of that Empire to spread the message of Christianity. In some Christian ciricles you see a similar conflict around Christ's prophesied return. Some seeing a warrior Christ coming back to Earth and smiting the enemies of God and Christians. While others, see the return of messenger of peace and unconditional love that once again is an agent of breaking down the existing order and power structure. As one Anglican priest whom I've been following on YouTube said recently, "We Christians are here to be a thorn in the side of the powers of the world." I see Misraaks in much the same way. He is here to be a thorn in the side of EVERYONE who thinks they understand how the world works. He is a traitor to the Fallen cause, and a reminder of what they have fallen away from. He is a thorn in the side of humans (like Lakshmi and Saladin) who see the conflict of Light and Dark in TRIBAL terms with one species being "good" by definition....and all others being "bad" by definition. Even though even the most cursory look at post-collapse Humanity makes that an untenable position. His calmness, patience and wisdom present an UNFORGIVING mirror to the growing darkness wtihin them....as well giving St. 14 a teachable moment on the relativity of perspective. Such that when that Eliksni child ran away from him in fear, I think he had something of an epiphany that softened him towards his former enemy. To the point he know calls Misraaks "friend". (As swords get beaten into plowshares?) The Message that Misraaks brings has a striking similarity to The Gospels of The New Testament. That the Light isn't about forming relationships with "nations"....but that the struggle between Light and Dark is an internal and individual one. That the issue isn't so much the powers themselves...but how you choose to use them. (It isn't the Light that makes one a Guardian. Its the choice to use that power to defend LIfe and those who cannot defend themselves from the Darkness and those who would do harm.) ...and the story is starting to move in that direction. As the Vanguard starts to slowly mend fences with old enemies, and form unlikely allainces accross species lines. Its starting to answer the question of WHY the Traveler stayed and fought for Humanity, when She ran away from other species She'd had contact with. This Human ability----wish really in some of us---to build DIVERSE communities. To reach across the divide of difference and build bridges on common ground, is part of our human nature. Not frequently enough....not powerfully enough....but it is there. While on the Eliksni side, only two individuals had the power to see this....and the desire to lead their people toward this "Community of Light". Variks and Misraaks. So yes, I haven't read your spoiler, But I do believe that Misraaks is both the Kell of Light....and the Kell of Kells (King of Kings?). A redemptive figure who will help move the Fallen back to being the Eliksni, and back into communion (for those who wish it) with The Light.

    • The lore tab is out now so the spoiler is no longer valid

      • Mithrax has been my vote for Kell of Kells since the outbreak perfected mission and the formation of the house of light. Everything about his Journey screams to me about the prophecy of the house of rain and I feel Chelkis would approve of Mithrax, the first kell to prioritize his people since, well since he sacrificed himself to stop Oryx from wiping out all the Eliksni entirely.

            • Well it’s always been established that the Traveler would recognise the Kell of Kells, something which we largely accept to mean that they’re eventually revived as a Guardian. As much as I love Variks and his character arc, this is one thing that would be absolutely detrimental to both his character and his ability to act as a leader. Because Variks is a scribe and scholar, were he to die and be reborn too much of value would be lost with the loss of his memory. Hence why Mithrax makes sense as the next candidate in line.

              • hmmmmmm.....If I remember Varrics mumbles in D1 correctly, I think the Kell of Kells prophecy is that one fallen leader will be blessed by the great machine and unity all the fallen houses the way Mythrax has been framed I always got the feeling that, just like the crow, he'd get killed just for a lost ghost to find him there is nothing suggesting that only Humans can be Guardians.....Id might even make the case that the Ghosts might have either been created by mistake or as a last resort, assuming the Rasputin shot the Traveler gig is true My reasoning is that the Traveler found the Eliksni to be worthy of it being there as it gave riis its golden age, but lets not forget that that giant space ball fled as soon as Oryx came knocking

                  Mithrax’s coronation: All hail Misraaks! Kell of light! Kell of salvation! Kell… [b]of[b/]… [b]KELLS![/b] I could drag it out by calling him kell of judgment, devils, kings, rain, winter, etc. but I figured I’d keep it to the two main ones.
