** I get the impression the couple is engaged in heavy role-play. It's not unusual to eroticize traumatic events, so I could see Hero having a thing for a hot busty wife who calls him "slave" and then #$#$s his brains out. As for why it's "role-play" and not in-game reality: Hero is the leader of the party, and Debora follows him wherever he goes. Debora also follows Hero's commands in battle, including what weapons to use and how to dress. She may play at being dominant, but when things get real, Hero calls the shots. Contrast with Pankraz, who actually '''is''' dominant over Hero, and thus makes his own decisions on gear and cannot be commanded in battle. Most of the time, Pankraz even directs the party with Hero just following along.

It's not unusual to eroticize traumatic events, so I could see Hero having a thing for a hot busty wife who calls him "slave" and then #$#$s his brains out. As for why it's "role-play"-- Hero is still the leader of the party, and Debora follows him wherever he goes. So it's readily apparent who actually calls the shots...

[[WMG:Illogical aging]]
All right, this one's bugged me for a while. When the hero gets turned to stone and sold to the rich man, you watch his child grow over a period of seven years. Then his child gets kidnapped, and not long afterwards, your children show up to rescue you. Eventually, you're able to rescue the kidnapped child... who now appears to be an adult! (Or at least a teenager.) If he was born ''after'' the hero's children, shouldn't ''he'' ''also'' still just be a kid?

** Partially justified by the fact that neither are Zenithian. The sword itself seems to have a lock-out measure that refuses to let itself be "wielded" by non-Zenithians (they can still carry it, just not use it). The hero has Loftian blood, which is arguably ''partially'' Zenithian (they did descend from them after all), but deluted by other factors, such as mixed with the bloodline of tamers over many generations along with, well, his royal/BadassNormal blood. The titular Heavenly Brides are ALL adopted (as explained by [=NPCs=] and party chat), and are implied to be Zenithian to a good extent (not entirely since they lack wings and all). TheChosenOne as per this game is specifically stated to be of Loftian and Zenithian blood (this is technically the REAL reason why Pankraz could never find them). The Zenithian helmet has been stated to shrink when he put it on, so one could suppose that if that shrinks to suit him well, the rest of the armor and the sword does so as well. As for why his sister can't use it, well, she's justified in-game as to being literally not strong enough to. Curiously, ''all'' of her other stats besides strength actually '''SURPASS''' her brother's, so that may explain why she can't equip the armor (she doesn't need to). As for the mother being unable to equip gear, one could suppose she doesn't have Loftian blood. If nothing more, one could suppose past all of this, that [[AWizardDidIt Dr.Agon chose who would be the hero]]. Hey, he's a magic dragon, after all. If that's not justification, only [[WordOfGod one more thing]] could be, and that's a given.
* As the above long post says, there's a feature that locks anyone but TheChoseOne out. Specifically (in the DS version, at least) when you first find it and pick it up, the game says that you can feel the strength being sapped from the hand that's holding it and that your body feels like lead. The sword itself isn't actually all that heavy -- it just weakens anyone unworthy of wielding it.

[[WMG:Treacle]]
When Treacle asks the hero as a kid to come close and let her get a good look at him after he brings her the Herald of Spring, why does he back up half-way across the room from where he was standing next to her? Is she far-sighted or something?

* One can assume that, if the hero actually chose her, he loves her despite this. It's not like she isn't completely upfront about what their relationship will be like. Maybe all that time working for Zugzwang gave the hero a submission fetish? Provided it's performed by busty girls, anyway.

* In the original Japanese, Debora calls the main character her "geboku," which is a bit more accurately translated as: "manservant," than slave.
