That is one way to describe the sort of atmosphere one would feel in Fiore. Fiore, in general, was a place of far too much drama. And though drama can be entertaining, this sort of drama was repetitive, and sad. It would always be guilds on the news, both dark and light. “So and so did this” and “So and so did that.” It was… it was always someone attacked this town and the Rune Knights brought justice to them, or perhaps the villain brought justice onto the law. The point is, people were narrow minded. No one ever sought a better solution to things. No illegal guild sought their solution through better, more efficient means.
He knew that violence was always a potential answer in any fight. It may be a solution that children are taught to shun throughout their childhood. But it was a forbidden shun that was far too tempting for mankind to neglect. Violence is not something avoided, but prevented. But it is never seen on the same level.
It’s simply human nature. No. It’s a nature that both human and non human have accepted and embraced as a potential possibility to assure an outcome. It’s both selfish and cruel. That one must suffer so that the other can benefit. That one must spend in order to make. That one must cry in order to smile.
But it’s a nature far too blindly respected that a fraction of beings think that they can shun the nature. The instinct.
