Honestly, what's Grima's deal anyway? (SPOILERS)

#1GalwenPosted 2/12/2014 2:03:02 AM(edited)
Why does the Fell Dragon, a dragon god who later gets a body from the Grimleal's breeding program, bother with the "wipe out mankind" thing? What future does it want to bring, that it prefers to the present?

It'd be one thing if it was stated Grima was trying to replace humanity with something else that is more to what he wants. But it's not. She has less motivation than Medeus, a guy from a NES game.

Validar has less motivation than Gharnef, also.

something something primordial state something something Tiki something

honestly the whole plot of FE:A is kind of a mess (time travel NEVER works out well) and dissecting one part of it when the entire thing is kind of rancid isn't that wise

What motivation did Deathwing have either?

Who will stop Grima from getting in to Naga's pantaloons to create godly offspring when the humans are wiped out?

Grima's gaga for Naga's vagima. <- Obvious

Presumably, to show those other evil dragons how it's done, and also to flip a gigantic middle finger to Naga, just because he can.

Are you implying that Medeus wasn't one of the better villains in the series because of his backstory, his motivations, etc?

Because you'd be wrong.

Medeus was the sole Earth Dragon who agreed to turn into a human when the Divine Dragon elders warned about the downfall of the dragon tribes. The last prince of the Earth dragons was then tasked with keeping the Earth Dragons sealed by Naga. For centuries, he kept that oath but when he saw how the humans treated the Manaketes, he became enraged and gathered all the manaketes into one nation: Dolhr. He then sought out to get his revenge on humans.

Compared Medeus to Grima, who does it for the evulz because he's not really anything more than a generic dragon bad guy, is an insult.

Deathwing has 4 games (+expansion packs, novels, etc) worth of (admittedly inconsistent) backstory. While he doesn't always appear in all, what makes him as character does appear. Grima has some relation to Earth Dragons. Said relation doesn't even make a whole lot of sense considering all Earth Dragons are supposed to be sealed yet no mention of them is made, not even by Naga and the other major Earth Dragon is dead with no blood carrier. Saias is only mentioned to have Fala blood and Manfroy tried to kill him which would make no sense if he did have minor Loptyr blood.

Grima literally pos out of nowhere just to be evil. This screams lack of reasearch on their franchise. The nonsensical geography of Valm compared to Valentia is just further evidence of this.

We'll probably find out in a future installment. Medeus's backstory was largely unexplained in the first game and Shadow Dragon, being explored in Mystery of the Emblem. Grima may be the same. He/she/it may have an intriguing past considering the implied connection to the earth dragons, but we can only speculate until (I hope) his background is revealed.
Why you are here is a profound mystery indeed.
