Ok, time for story rambling #1! (They won’t be numbered later so yeah, think of this as a decoy number lmao)
Each rambling would be hidden and can be read when clicked. Most of the ramblings will come in a form of me typing random shit in lists, so don’t mind my unorganized explanations.
As I’m aware that I ship a lot of characters for some reason, some ramblings may have ship implications. But at this point, no characters are planned to have romantic relationships.
Although some crushes are possible if you connect the actual right dots
Regarding William and Hina + Hina's motives and stuff
Lemme just explain about ‘William’s men’ part I’ve written in his bio first, he basically makes connections to those people, then slowly starts to make ‘deals’ with some of them, depending on his current situation. He gets some loyal underlings through this too.
Most of the deals promise things that go along with the dealer’s goals, such as money, fame, etc. As for the exchange, William is aware of what the dealer is actually capable of (killing, stealing, raiding, etc.) due to the befriending part. Will the requests get gradually bigger? It depends on what William is looking for at that moment, as it varies.
Now speaking of Hina, she often works as a bodyguard (subject to be changed later). Although she would take any jobs within her actual limits, to get the money.
So yeah, Hina was involved in William’s deal several times. As Hina’s goal was pretty simple (anything for cash), William took a liking to her.
While Hina still had the 100% cash goal, she got employed in a guild/faction/etc. and finally has something (relating to herself) to be held in honor.
Although that leads to some Hina with the self-doubt™ moments.
As an asshole William is, he’s aware of that. And tries to weave her away from the self-doubt and the honor part.
How does it turn out? It partially worked, although since they basically work in different places at this point, they haven’t contacted each other that much. Although some bittersweet(???) memories are still left with both of them.
If you’re wondering how would they react if they see each other again. William would still retain his happy-going and casual attitude towards Hina, although he’s wary of her possible changes. But for Hina, she would still be friendly, but noticeably awkward.
