24, italian, female, vegetarian, animal lover, music lover, aro&ace, atheist. INTJ and enneatype 5, the investigator. My main fandoms here are Fire Emblem (6-12), Dorohedoro and the Zero Escape games but I will occasionally post about other stuff. Every once in a while I post fanarts or take sketch requests, commissions are currently open.

I know these are unpopular opinions, but 1. I love Almedha largely because she’s fantastic at making bad decisions, and 2. I think not telling Soren about his heritage was one of the few good decisions she made.
I’ll probably make a post about my Almedha love after I get through her parts in my current playthrough.
I’ll wait for your post about Almedha because even if I don’t like her she’s an interesting character to analyze :D
and I agree that not telling Soren about his heritage was a very good decision of her. Although I still think Soren figured it out on his own but didn’t care much at that point, but this is more of an headcanon that anything else (and I wonder if he ever told Ike anything about it…it could be an interesting idea for a fic).
Almedha is definitely interesting, and since the interesting things about her are her flaws I can see why some wouldn’t like her.
I think Soren figured it out too, and my first inclination is to say that by the time RD was over he decided to just ignore it and not tell Ike, but then again there are a lot of things in his life he mostly tries not to think about but tells Ike at some point so that could be true. You’re right, it could be a neat fic (….oh no, I already have a bunch of fics I’m working on, stupid plotbunnies…xD). And actually I think Ike might have figured it out by himself, after all he had that conversation with Kurthnaga about Almedha’s past and probably noticed Kurth’s resemblance to Soren…so I could see Ike putting two and two together but never mentioning it unless Soren brought it up.
I completely agree, I don’t think Soren would tell him right away, but I can image him telling everything years later. I don’t even think there would be angst involved, at that point Soren would be a lot more at ease with himself and Ike to know that he wouldn’t be rejected no matter what.
I don’t know what to think about Ike though, he clearly isn’t stupid but he has some dumb moments (“What? Shinon is Rolf’s teacher? orly?”) that makes me dubious about his perceptiveness on this kind of things :/
But in any case, even if he figured it out on his own or Soren told him at some point I doubt anything would change, Ike doesn’t judge people for their parents. He didn’t even judge Pelleas for that.
Ike: You’re King Pelleas? The son of Mad King Ashnard? I expected you to be…bigger.
Pelleas: You are the hero of Crimea, General Ike. You killed my father…
Ike: It was nothing personal. Your father had to be put down.
(uh, Ashnard’s son is even smaller than you think, Ike XD)
