Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExpansion: He gets a lot more screentime in the manga, mainly interacting with the minor villains while he only appears in his boss battle in the games. He is also set up as a major adversary for Marth.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSocialDarwinist: He believes that only people like him should deserve the right to rule. He is more fond of Camus as he sees him as his equal in strength while despising Marth, who he perceives as a weakling.

After the War of Shadows and upon succeeding the throne of Archanea, she is pressured into marrying either Marth or Hardin by Boah despite still loving Camus.

Despite this it's [[http://kirakiraunmei.livejournal.com/5749.html officially stated]] by the developers in the 20th Anniversary Encyclopedia that Draug and Norne have romantic feelings for each other. That explains their support bonuses and why Norne doesn't have an ending with her following in Kris's footsteps like Katarina does. It's hinted as well that Draug was talking about Norne in Heroes with a specific quote. "There's someone I've sworn to protect above all others." he's not shy about protecting Marth and the Summoner and the way he says it.... Yeah that's Norne.
