Yes I get Core Theory is dead. Yes I understand that God himself would have to write a blog featuring anything other then someone with a Sage level or lower title.

But if Core Theory hadn't imploded what do you think the "Hero" would have been like? Personally I always imagined he would be a careless guy who was really in your face against proxies but was scarred knowing what would happen during the final battle.

Your thoughts?

Already did this. The whole point of the Operation Wintergreen blog series was to have a story that followed the narrative structure of Core Theory without having any of the titles or other silliness that got Core Theory shot down. Setoth was the Sage, Arkady was the Warrior, Michenab was the Guardian, and Kalias was the Hero.

Unfortunately, Kalias didn't get quite as much characterization as the rest of the cast, but there were some Hero traits to him. He acts extremely self-sacrificing, putting himself into huge danger to try and save strangers. He also had a very strong sense of determination linked to that self-sacrifice: when, from his perspective, it was only him suffering from Slendy, he gave in pretty easily, and was on the path to being hallowed. Yet the instant he sees Slendy take a child right in front of him, he snaps out of it and goes to insane lengths to fight back. And our portrayal didn't have him "in your face against proxies" at all; if anything, he was the closest to a pacifist the story had (compare him to Arkady, who went out of his way to fight against proxies, or Setoth who once attempted to kidnap them FOR SCIENCE!) The time he is forced to kill proxies, he went into a huge depression, and during the final battle, he's on the Rescue Team rather than the Let's-Slaughter-Everything-With-An-Operator-Symbol-On-It Team.

The author mentioned that if he had kept going with Core Theory that he probably would have chosen Reach as the Hero.

So yeah, that's probably your closest "canon" hero.

Huh. That's interesting. Who would you have chosen?

Bondie

Caring, gentle orphan boy ripped from his simple, peaceful life and thrust into conflict against a previously unknown evil force and now training under the wisened eyes of an old master. Bondie was the Luke Skywalker to M's Obi-Wan.

It sure as hell wasn't zero. Yeah, Reach or possibly Maduin had the right feel to me for being the Hero, if there really was one. zero's problem was that HE wanted to be the Hero of the story...

Brutal Deconstruction ahoy!
