I actually like Virion as a character...

By character, I mean design and personality. Am I in the minority here?

Nope. I like him as well.

I don't hate him, but I wouldn't say I am a fan either.

no, most of Virion's hate comes from a gameplay standpoint.

He's one of the few standouts in this game -- over the top and dramatic, but the characters are aware of this and poke fun at him all the time. He's also got some fun quirks and real romantic substance behind his verbose, pretentious courting.

And he has a unique map sprite animation to top it all off. You know what? **** it, I'm going all in: Virion is the most fun and interesting character in Awakening.

Interesting. Could you recommend any supports that show the strength of his chharacter because most of what I've seen from him is boring or just plain dumb.

I like Virion. It's a shame he's not all that effectual in combat.

He had so much potential to be a reincarnation of Flavio who stuck with you throughout the entire game... But I'd rather have him be a buffoon in personality and a boss on the battlefield. Instead, he's occasionally surprisingly competent (Avatar and Olivia supports), but derps when you try to reclass him.

If all his supports were like Libra and Nowi's, and he got better classes, he would have been perfect. As is, he's still the best prolonged comic relief in the game.
