Remember that Seifer was controlled by Ultimecia?He was clearly brainwashed.And I think personally that’s why Squall doesn’t hate him.If Seifer would have tortured him of his free will,so yeah,I would understand Squall and his hatred for the guy.But it’s not the case.The poor guy had his feelings hurt when he didn’t pass the SeeD examen and he decided to follow the sorceress because he wanted to be accepted and respected,and he thought the fact being the sorceress’s knight would fulfill his dreams,and Ultimecia took advantage of it.He was controlled and brainwashed.I really think he wasn’t able to think straight anymore.He was lost in his madness.The only way for him to escape that madness was that Squall and the Orphanage Gang stop him and Ultimecia.Again,it’s just my personal opinion,I don’t think Seifer is a bad guy.
It’s out of context I know,but I needed to say what I think about that whole Squall/Seifer thing.
Ah, I agree. I’ve never honestly considered Seifer a villain. If one of the party members (like, say, Rinoa [couGHS]) had been under Ultimecia’s control and done bad things, would people call her a villain? I don’t think they would… but idk.
Then again, I haven’t played the game in a long time, and frankly, it’s always been unclear to me when Seifer’s “brainwash” wears off. Like, is he still brainwashed when he brings Rinoa to Ultimecia as Adel? I can’t tell/remember. D; If not, then… yea, he done fucked up.
But, still, at one point he was under Ultimecia’s control and I think he did so many horrible things during that time that even if he WAS no longer under her control, he couldn’t imagine himself ever being able to come back from the things he did, and it colored all his actions since then. Like you said, I think he did become a bit lost in his madness. That doesn’t excuse him his sins, but…
I DON’T KNOW, I JUST REALLY FEEL FOR SEIFER OKAY ajhksdgwuyagd
Squall shows multiple times that he is not capable of hatred. Apathy yes, but Squall doesn’t hate anyone. He views all sides as equal. All opinions and points of view simultaneously matter and don’t matter.
