Black should be mindful of his place. He's been in just about every Competition there is, so of course he'd have some investment in ending it. If he'd really like to make himself useful then maybe he'd focus on helping achieve her perfect game, not poking around where he shouldn't and getting himself in trouble. Though there is something flattering about him wanting to dig up all of her, Their, and the Test Reality's secrets. It's always nice to feel compelling.
He really doesn't know much about her to be honest. All he knows is she gave him this flesh husk in exchange for him participating in all future Competitions. Despite his complete lack of knowledge, he can't help but have the vaguest feeling that something's... very off.
An offworlder she dragged into the Competition. Every death name needs some cutesy characters, right? He played his role well enough, though she wasn't fond of the whole buddying-up-with-both-Ignis-and-Larya thing.
Just because she's the lesser of two evils doesn't mean she's not evil. Seraye isn't happy about her reign even though she's no longer bound to the Test Reality. Seraye still has allies there, after all, and moreover innocent people don't deserve to suffer under god-tyrants. She might not have made much progress, but Seraye is definitely looking for some way to get Opine out of everyone's hair.
Seraye could really be something. Opine dragged her into the Test Reality because she saw potential for an interesting story, but now she sees the potential for a valuable ally. If only she weren't so callous.
Soleil wants to believe in the humanity that must exist in Opine deep down. She wishes she could just have a conversation with her, be a friend to her... but she's never managed to get an audience, and Opine isn't the type to reach out. But all of the Tested are getting serious about their hate for her, so Opine doesn't have long if she wants to redeem herself...
An important creation. Soleil grounds others, brings life, and does something interesting with the groundwork Opine has laid. So long as Soleil doesn't start straying too far into where she shouldn't like some of her allies, things will be just fine.
Fray really wishes her god were cooler, because the whole being aware of her constant retcons and rewrites and memory wipes is getting kinda freaky and the fact that she's gaining power isn't helping matters. At the same time, though, she's not so sure hanging out with Ignis to beat Opine up is the right choice either, because he's a terrible person too. Aren't there any super-powerful gods out there who're just nice?
Opine worked hard to fix her, to find a way to grant Spades' wish without obeying it. Fray's at a precarious point, she feels, where she could easily fall into or out of Opine's favor. Opine hopes she'll make the right choice. But, why wouldn't she?
Ara is a being of endless kindness... but she had witnessed firsthand how Opine has caused the Tested to suffer, how she could cause all of Entirety to suffer. Thus, she can't help but support Ignis on his quest to dethrone her...
Something within Opine buzzes when she looks at Ara, like a static in her mind. Something is wrong about her. She feels as though Ara wasn't meant to be here... but she planned this, didn't she? But why would she? Why would she make Ara and put her where she is? It's frustrating, upsetting, so she shakes her head and looks elsewhere every time.
Cel doesn't understand how anyone could be so cruel. Why would someone want to create life just to make them hurt each other? Why does death make her so happy? Why does messing with their minds and lives not bother her? Why can't she just let them be happy?
Though she knows Cel wouldn't think so, Cel is really the closest thing to an ally she has, isn't she? She plays her role well, her character develops nicely, and she's got a distaste for certain spoilsports. There's a reason Opine keeps casting her as someone important.
Dicro doesn't really have an issue with Opine in a void. He doesn't mind the nature of his existence or being in a constant loop of Competitions or anything like that. It's the fact that everyone else is bothered by it that bothers him. So... he doesn't have much choice but to cooperate with everyone who wants to dispose of her. But it's really not personal or anything, and he'd like to seek out a non-existence-destroying solution, personally.
Another star character of hers, all gone to waste. He held so much promise, but he's become so involved with her enemies that he threatens to tear about the foundations she's worked so hard to build...
Umbra is... not too happy about Opine, to say the least. She's caused the Tested no shortage of torment, has defined Umbra's existence as that of constant suffering, and has forced her to accept burdens she never asked for. She understands there might be a person somewhere beneath the gaudy mask, but that person is testing the limits of Umbra's patience.
Don't ask her about the avatar thing. She doesn't know how to feel about that. She prefers not to think too hard on the implications.
Opine created Umbra as something of an avatar, an idealized representation of herself, with all of the strength and power and confidence that Opine--
Well. The point is that Opine has long wished for Umbra to win the Competition, but the story's become so distorted and Umbra has become so tainted by Ignis that Opine can't help but feel bitter when she looks at her.
Ah, Fellmund. He sure is Fellmund. Larya's been on-and-off in an alliance with him for a while, pretty much just using him whenever her standards are low and/or she's really bored. He's such a dweeb, but, y'know... it makes her and Spark look way cooler, so he can tag along sometimes and pretend he's someone.
Soleil witnessed Soleil tormenting and killing people she considered friends (their subsequent retconning be damned,) not to mention that he did the same to plenty of still-canon people that she just didn't witness, so Fellmund is pretty much on top of her shit list. If he's smart he'll never show his face around the Test Reality again, but she almost hopes he does so she can punch it in.
Fellmund is kind of skeevy and completely lacks any charisma whatsoever, so he can't really look past the terrible things he's done. He's still kind of bitter about him getting away that one time Dicro had the opportunity to off him, but if the opportunity arises he supposes he wouldn't mind finishing the job.
Fellmund put on a pretty cool magic show, but then he killed some nice people so hard they were rendered non-canon, fought her and Dicro, and then helped Ignis torture Exuro to death, soooooo... no more magic shows! Jerk!
Considering Fellmund's harassed her, caused all sorts of trouble throughout the Test Reality, killed off her allies, and aided in the torture and murder of her boyfriend, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Seraye detests Fellmund almost as much as a certain purple menace.
Pleris is definitely scary, but... doesn't seem like she's a threat or anything. I mean, if he fought her it'd be trouble, but she doesn't seem like the type to initiate. Seems more interested in cleaning up and helping out, and Chaurus can relate to that.
It's a shame she never stretches the leash, because Crucifera knows someone like her must have information he can't get anywhere else. A direct source on the Dark Chancellor... that'd be something, wouldn't it? But, hey, if she's right on the universe and everything, he'll probably find out whatever he wants with the time granted by eternity, anyhow.
Eirlys finds Pleris a fascinating figure. Every once in a while she'll invite Pleris for tea so she can listen to Pleris' thoughts, at times agreeing and at others initiating a friendly debate. Eirlys has never been one to maintain solid beliefs, but Pleris' certainly interest her!
She's a coward and a fool to believe Entirety is so untouchable. She is the embodiment of everything he so despises. All that power and she squanders it in servitude. Her smile is sickening. Everything about her disgusts him.
