Which is more reason to show them. I'm not sure if I want them to be important to the global story, but I do want them to have good on-screen time.
That's a tough one. On one hand, I'd like her to reject Adam and join Blake (she's her mentor, after all). On the other hand, having her remain loyal to the Fang, while accepting its sins, could be a compelling story. Something like this: she admits the Fang's been doing nasty things, and she deeply regrets that. But she swore an oath, or anything similar, and has to remain a Fang to the end. I don't know if I explained myself here, but something like that is what I'd like to see.
The twins will be Adam's goons, like Em and Merc for Cinder.

I get what you're saying I'm open to that possibility.
Overall I would like to see the White Fang be 'humanized' in Vol 5 or 6. I want to see members that are either Faunus that believe in the cause but lost their way (like Illia could possibly be) or Faunus who, like Blake, are beginning to regret their actions and want out but can't because desertion means death. If Blake wants to take back the White Fang she needs those Faunus in her group instead of ones that want no involvement with the White Fang.

I actually heard someone make the argument that it'll be hard to humanize the Fang because even the ones who may have misgivings are being complacent in the illegal activities and thats not really a recipe for sympathy
I dont agree, but its interesting someone views it as such

See I never believed that. People were saying that because those two guys said the Vale branch was radicalized that the rest of the Fang was separated into different branches that might not be as bad. But to me, it felt like those two guys were just saying that to Ghira to persuade him that they weren't the enemy. They lied about plenty else in that conversation, and they even seem to be working with Adam, so why would people believe that one part of the conversation was true? From what I can tell, the entire White Fang is radicalized under the current leadership of Sienna and the others. It even sounds like he/she is working with Salem's group.

In reply to lionblaze77 Not quite, but maybe. I think the Vale branch (including the fox twins) are loyal to Salem and her faction while the rest of the White Fang are being blackmailed to working for Salem's as well. Salem blatantly said in Ep. 1 that 'Adam is loyal. Make sure Sienna Khan feels the same way.' So the White Fang are largely independent, but all the WF in Vale work for Salem. The twins are working for Adam as well, and persuading others that they are different so they can continue operating without interference.

I find it hard to believe every single member of the Fang is radicalized. There are probably members who don't agree with the current direction, or those who simply don't know better. In any case, if Blake is to form her own group, there will be Faunus willing to side with her against Adam.
Humanized, at least in part. An internal clash would be inevitable, since not all the Fang members will abandon Adam.

Oh well of course every single individual member isn't going to like what's going on and be radicalized. I'm just saying that the organization as a whole is.
I'm sure there are a ton of members that don't like what's going on, but are still in because they are scared to leave and "in too deep". I mean, we saw what happened to deserters.
#33570301 - 10 months ago
Exactly. Think about what color Blake is associated with.
Salem only recently co-opted the White Fang, and is still in the middle of doing so.
Because Ghira, being the former head, would know of the entire White Fang were radicalized. The way they refer to the White Fang when Blake shows up suggests the Menagerie branch is pretty mundane, they refer to him in the same context as the milkman.
Additionally Terrorist organizations are usually organized in cells to maintain flexibility and in case a leader is assassinated.

One of the Albain twins said something to the effect that he stepped down to become chieftain. I imagine wrangling the organisation of all of Menagerie as well as WF would be faaar too many responsibilities for most people to want to take on.
Except they might not have. Seeing as Menagerie isn't considered a Kingdom, it may well be that they don't have CCT infrastructure.
