PostSubject: The Good. The Evil. And (the) Cyrus.    Fri Jan 25, 2013 1:08 am

I'd just like to start by saying that, I am still rather interested about Cyrus (more so about Cathy but for a different reason) even as we finish part I and start to really get a feel for all the characters .

I don't know about anyone else, but I really find the 'back and forth'-ness in Cyrus's character to be rather interesting. To say the least. It seems as if, internally, there is a Cain and Abel relationship going on (in a sense). For example (I see) when he, kind of, protects Charles from himself by not allowing him in the military (I personally think that if Charles would have been made to join it really would have destroyed him even more?). Though, of course, this is easily offset by the fact that he treated Charles terribly most of the time (besides what I listed before).

I don't know if I'm the only one, or not, but from what I can view from Cyrus in the story is that I find at times he has his moments of both 'sides'. They seem to switch off, as proven multiple times, but I think someone could view him as switching back and forth between the boundaries of 'evil' and 'good' (which I find a rather dynamic part of his character). Now, I wouldn't consider him 'neutral' though.

This post probably seemed as if there was no real point to it, though I really was trying to make one. Sorry if it didn't. silent

I, personally, think that Cyrus is very neutral. He certainly isn't "evil" (not when you compare him to people like Cathy, and he also is clearly not good, either (especially when compared to people like Samuel).

Cyrus came off as neutral to me because he didn't really have bad intentions, but they weren't good either. He seems to sit in the middle, never really hitting the extremes of anything.
