He is a total baby when he doesn’t get what he wants.
We don’t see loads of this in the game, but in the game he’s in control basically 100% of the time. (“Death’s chill wind” is about the only time he seems actually taken by surprise, and he is actually looking for death, so…) But sometimes it must happen, and he reacts without the maturity we might hope for from a zillion-year-old statesman.
Ardyn is a very specific combination of getting everything he wants, thanks to being a Machiavellian mastermind with superpowers and a cabinet position, and getting nothing
that he really wants, having been supremely fucked over by the gods. So I reckon it’s really easy for him to feel deeply thwarted by minor problems. Every time something doesn’t go his way it is YET ANOTHER INJUSTICE WROUGHT BY THIS CRUEL WORLD AND ITS CRUELLER GODS. *shakes fist at the sky*
Especially if it relates to Noct getting something Ardyn wanted. He haaaaates that.This was originally posted at http://lokifan.dreamwidth.org/363128.html. Comment wherever you like :)
