Wow, is it just me or are the Asterisk bosses all utter monsters?

Really, every one of them I've seen so far are complete sociopaths except for Dim. I mean jeez, they could have been a bit subtle with it but no. They're all over exasperatingly nefarious to the point of farce.

Not all of them, when you get to do the chapters from 5 to 8 you'll get to see some other side of some of them.
Though yes, plenty of them are horrible.

I felt bad for this guy, to be honest. I've gotten up to Red Mage. The rest have all deserved their deaths

It's probably so your own characters don't look bad. After all, you are going on a killing spree to obtain crazy amounts of power. If the asterisk bosses weren't the embodiment of true evil, your characters wouldn't have much ground to stand on with their hyper judgmental proclamations, and killing a bunch of people you just met only to hold up their asterisk gem in grinning triumph would look a little too questionable for our pure hearted heroes.

They do have their ups and downs. Honestly, I thought Barbarossa was a pretty cool guy.

If you read the notes you get from the summoner girl, those make it sound like she was poisoned by the fairy wings just like everyone else. She was a bad person to begin with, but she wasn't so sadistic until she was poisoned. I think the same thing happened with the ranger girl. The Valkyrie wasn't so bad, either. She was just following orders. And Khint wasn't evil himself, he was just a mercenary who could only get evil people to pay him enough. DeRosa, though... what a creep.

The dialogue and tropes are my least appreciated aspect of this game. It's a matter of tried and true story telling, especially from a Japanese antagonist/nursery rhyme sort of perspective, with a heap of stereotypical marketing on top.

Some of the bosses I wanted to make them dead (lol red mage, merchant, time mage, and salve maker), while other ones I kind of feel bad after killing them and reading the journal about them (summoner, ranger, valkyrie).

Some people like the Knight, the Valkyrie, and the Swordmaster weren't bad at all. In fact, all they did was follow orders and show extreme loyalty to their country, and trust in their leader.

You could also say that Victor wasn't bad, though a bit off his rocker for sure.

I felt bad for the thief and the valkyrie wasn't the worst. And to be honest the monk was just hilarious, nearly a comic-releif villain. The rest can go a head and die.

Slow down, buddy! Just because people can read it doesn't mean it isn't crap!
