Agreeing with a lot in this post, but I'm still irritated that he blamed Amaya for "lying" to him when she tried to tell him he was wrong (albeit she could have tried a bit harder, true, but I mean, royalty, be careful what you say). At the same time, I'm starting to wonder if maybe he's a bit... Disconnected from the reality of things. He grew up sheltered and, obviously, he was told not to mingle with commoners because... I don't know, his parents are pompous dicks? Who knows. I doubt the answer's that simple-- Wait, wrong game, that's probably the answer. But as I was saying: He's royalty, thus higher class than commoners, which is already one barrier between "his" reality and "their" reality in terms of events. Then, bring into play his behaviour, he was most likely raised with the mentality of "Royalty = Better than commoners" which I will never understand why people think that's a good thing to raise someone in his position with do you want the people to like him or not? Add to that the fact he probably rarely socialized with people his age when he was young, at least, outside the whole "Act like a prince" environment... Yeah, no, his behaviour and attitude makes a lot of sense. Doesn't mean I approve of it, though. I don't. However, you have pointed out little details that are interesting. The fact he's reading the newspaper at all, for one. I mean, as the next in line for the throne, it's clear he needs to keep in touch with current events so that he'll know what's happening. That's commendable. The whole "no talking at breakfast thing" I completely understand, though, you do not want to talk to me before I ate in the morning, so I can relate, but that's not what's bothering me. What's bothering me is that he doesn't really seem to respect Amaya. That's my biggest issue with his attitude. ... Actually, that's probably my biggest issue with a lot of love interests and characters in these games. Respect. Just so everyone knows: I'm actually kind of irritated at Roberto, too. Why are you patting Amaya's head like she's a little kid, seriously, what the heck? Even before that: Why are you getting so touchy-feely in the first place? Rude.
