Now, in the main comic, she chose to keep the little pink flower for her own symbol for her Decrypted army. She doesn't seem the sympathetic sort, to remember something fondly and to use the flower as a homage to it. I can't see her remembering Olive fondly at all anyway.
So maybe she's including it to remind her of something? Of the futility of fighting Fate, maybe?
Wanda may be rather miffed with Olive at the moment, but a few thousand turns from now when she's all but wearing a collar marked 'Slave to Fate'? I can see her looking back on Olive fondly, even if they never meet again.
Actually, it looks to me like she still has the flower on the side of her new outfit.
DoctorJest wrote:What? No. Why would that in any way make her an heir? Being made an heir is like being made chief warlord. It's explicit and a definable (and presumably see-able) quality possessed by a unit.
And if she had just "allied" to a side, the side she allied with would know this. You can't deceive someone into thinking you're on their side when you're just an ally, and it's clear from her interactions with Stanley that he's most certainly her Overlord and Parson is Chief Warlord, neither of which would be true for her if she were allied. There's no way they would be unaware of her just being an ally and it would have at least been mentioned, and as an ally she'd be under no compulsion for duty or to obey orders.
It just makes no sense at all.
Not so, there's a very important difference. An heir is something a Commander can be popped as, the status doesn't have
to be granted later. And it can't be seeable, else Jillian's heirship would have been known long before she revealed it.
As for the alliegance thing, why must Wanda be a Barbarian in the Future Era if she is
an heir? I will note that Parson didn't learn that his natural allies, were in fact allies, until he was told as much, despite his glasses. And you can be sure those natural allies treat Stanley and Parson as their Overlord and Chief Warlord respectively. Allied Barbarians may work a little differently I suppose, but Jillian's Barbarian Witch seems to act like any other Caster.
However, when Wanda and company were in the field with an invasion force looming above Goodminton, they feared disbandment. This indicates that Wanda does not believe herself to be an heir. It's possible she was popped as heir but doesn't believe that Casters can become Rulers though (or that she isn't certain either way). It's also possible that her purse was empty, or simply too small to pay the upkeep of so many Officers and Heavies for more than a turn or two, if that. She was after all, in the field with Goodminton's primary Warband.

That would imply that Wanda and Olive are to do it together. So if Delphie's visions are of the Future Era, Olive would have to pop up somehow. Perhaps she'll join a new Side Wanda establishes?
Of course, it's hard to say what Delphie actually saw. We only view her 'Goodminton' spin on them. Even her most truthful version of the future may be a poorer interpretation then we could make. The Olive stuff and the all conquering Wanda stuff may actually be seperate events she's assuming will happen concurrently. I remain unconvinced that Wanda will do anything more to Olive than think about her intensely.
