PostSubject: Question About Kurt and Malik from Graces (MAJOR SPOILERS!)   Tue Jun 24, 2014 2:35 pm

As mentioned in the title, there are going to be major spoilers here, so read at your own risk if you haven't played through the game.

How would you guys have felt if Malik had taken Kurt's place when the valkines went out of control? In this scenario, Malik would have died instead of Kurt, but then Kurt would join the party in Malik's place. How would this have changed the game for you?

Considering we got to know Kurt for all of maybe an hour, I would've been pissed, especially since Malik is my second favorite character from the game. However, it would ultimately depend on how Kurt developed over the course of the game. I'd probably warm up to him if they did it right, but I'm glad we got the scenario we did. Malik is awesome.

Will Kurt be able to continuously summon minions in battle?

No, but in this scenario, he has the same spells as Malik.

It wouldn't make sense story-wise since Malik was Asbel's captain.

@Swordandshield:

The plot happens normally until the group encounters Kurt and the Graces-equivalent of a Lacryma (I can't seem to recall the actual word). Malik heroically sacrifices himself before giving Kurt the chance to, and then Kurt remorsefully takes his place continuing his adventures alongside Asbell and pals because he must atone for his friend's death.

I guess it would work.

I can just imagine the whole thing playing out similar to "Space Cases", a show that aired on Nickelodeon for 2 seasons when I was a wee lad. No one seems to remember the show but me (not even my sister, who is older than me) and I had to look up the show to get the show's name right. Just midway through the story, one party member permanently leaves and is replaced by a friend the others have only heard of.

Eh, I wouldn't like having Kurt as a party member in Malik's place but I guess it could work. They don't do replacements in Tales games it seems, the members you get stay with til the end of the game. So if they did it with Malik and Kurt it would be a new thing which isn't necessarily a bad thing, it would just be awkward coming from a Tales game.

I'm not sure that Kurt would really have reason to come along, even if Malik died. He had his own thing that was set up there in Fendel, what with trying to make the country a better place and all, and I'm not sure that he would have felt compelled to abandon that to join the party even if Malik bit it. If anything, I feel like it would just make him switch tracks from what they were doing before (since that's what made the valkines go out of control, iirc) and redouble his efforts to find an alternative source of energy for Fendel. I mean, they could always force it to go the other way if they wanted to, create some sort of contrived, "I must do this in Malik's honor!" reason (and then have everyone in the party agree to it because the plot says so, no matter how weird it is), but that wouldn't be very strong, writing-wise. At least, not in my opinion.

That said, if they gave him his never-ending minion flood anyway, and said minions aided the party, then I'd forgive the weak writing. Those minions were the worst and as a result I'd love to have them on my side. (Sorry, Malik. Get a minion hoard and maybe I'll defend you more.)
