Well, Id like to try to see Cichol try to defeat and Seal me away again, not only did I gain Profound power from G21 but a new Ability from G22 as well
I feel like "generic" is being used as a catch all term for when people really want to say "I don't like this character some reason" or "Everyone likes this character so I have to hate them now". Let's delve into Marleid as a character and take a look at her background and personality.
As Marleid states she was raised in a band of mercenaries and often traveled around giving her a friendless background. This is where she learned combat. As a combatant she has a preference for ranged weapons like bows and cross bows because by her admission melee usually ends with gore and blood all over her and cleaning that mess is troublesome. She was eventually picked up by Eirawen and given quite a high position despite being low born and thus not eligible to be a real knight. Currently she works as a royal guard to Eirawen and is her agent within the kingdom performing tasks in service to the queen whom she respects highly and protective of.
Marleid is shown that she an inferiority complex in that while people assume she's a knight, she's actually not, and that all of the accomplishments that the force she was assigned to could've been done entirely by the Millitian alone. She also depreciates herself and her abilities by stating that even though she is at her best at using her crossbow, she is hardly anyone special with it. She is generally mistrustful of people she's unfamiliar with but shows exceptional loyalty to those that are, namely the queen and the Millitian. She is also scared of ghosts (I want to bully her for/with this). She is also quite the snarker when spoken to and is the type to be try to put on a serious face for official business, but usually cracks under stress and is embarrassed by trying to put it back on again.
Marleid isn't as "generic" as people say she is. With so much media and so much stories over the course of human history we have categories called tropes. Every character we see has a combination of these tropes and just because we see they have a few tropes in common with others doesn't make them generic. A generic character is closer to what the aces ended up as, and I mean the original aces, Merlin (originally), J and Starlet. Starlet being the worst offender as the childish idol that everyone loves and is so pure and innocent you could punch her and she'd still forgive you.
If you're talking about her design, its not really generic where I could confuse her for anyone else and I don't get immediately reminded of another character. Her two-tone hair color is a nice addition and I always enjoy her expressions where she has what I like to call "her snark face".
She's some teenage tumblr girls OC that's a tough girl that don't need no man and is amazing. She's witty and smart but can also be emotional.
Yeah, but what could we consider our Divine form then? False god?
