That said, it could have been in a non-hostile way, like countries took advantage of Adepts to wage war against each other, with some just fighting in self-defense, and the firepower wielded by each side was so great, the world got fucked over. As a result everyone began to hate and fear Adepts, and basically it's just a cycle of fear and violence.
I could buy that. Sumeragi (Both versions) seem to have a thing for using Adepts as weapons, despite being made up of Adepts themselves.
There may be a lot of Adepts who are all like Shoo fly, don't bother me about the entire thing, only to end up being used as weapons against their will like Joule and Rebellio.
Then they end up getting blamed for it, which likely resulted in groups like Eden.
Human Nature at it's finest.
Some bosses like Elise or Desna weren't aggressive normally.
Well, Desna is aggressive towards Gunvolt, but reluctantly towards Copen oddly enough.
After giving Kohaku's bio another look I would be more surprised if she isn't an adept. I mean first she is effectively the heart of the group, so her being an adept would have the most emotional payoff for the kids. Second she is salvaging all these machines but she doesn't have any training and is just going off of intuition. Third is the fact that her bio states that she is actually able to get them working successfully for purposes that are far different than their original purpose, plus the way they present it with the ellipse.
Yeah I'm calling it now Kohaku is an adept with a septima that affects machines.
...I'm so dumb.
I've been wondering why Copen is called iX in game....
...it's because he's using a Pseudonym to reduce the chances of Mytyl learning he's alive.
In iX's unexplained setting, it's highly questionable if Mytyl is even a factor.
I would say it's because X is his personal symbol, and Inti Creates doesn't want to call him X, but the X isn't all that visible on his design in 2 and beyond.
Didn't one of the mangas have an evil clone of X called iX?
I believe so.
Another tidbit from a recent gameplay stream: Darkness Mode Lola will attack Copen if he doesn't target enemies quickly enough, although her damage won't kill him.
About time someone kicked his ass.
How does Lola get alternate mode anyway? (likely something story related)
No clue about Awakening Mode, but Darkness Mode is suspected to be related to Blade. His skill is Berserk Trigger, while dark mode is activated with "Darkness Trigger" on the EX Weapon list (although its icons are different from the others), and the site description says "a lightning septima" is utilized for the weapon/mode.
I think it's something unlocked in the second Blade fight rather than a proper EX Weapon earned by defeating him. In the intro stage encounter Copen loses because none of his weapons actually hurt Blade, so I assume Darkness Trigger's power boost is how he wins round 2.
