These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Complete Monster: Haine is a sadistic child and the leader of the Cult of Apophis. In his backstory, he is shown to have Mind Raped most of the other cultists into becoming his servants and in the series itself he takes a sadistic delight in watching people suffer in Shadow Games, whether they be his own men or not. His greatest onscreen cruelty comes when he tortures Marcus and outright murders another boy named Sylvestre (who had no business in the One Day War and simply happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time). Then broadcasted the duel to the other students of East Academy in order to intimidate them. Unlike the other cultists who were brainwashed, or Apophis which is simply fulfilling it's purpose. Haine enjoys hurting people.
