I hate that the writers gave recruited characters on CF those little dialogues against former friends/family and the recruited characters never have any comeback because not even the writers could figure out a good reason for them to side against their homeland. "Ignatz...", really? Thats all you have to say after your childhood friend calls you out for joining the warmongering imperialists currently invading your home country where the sister you swore to protect lives, Raphael? Okay then.
That is because the devs got lazy with their battle quotes.
I'm not expecting Tellius tier of battle quotes, but even in Elibe or in Magvel?
I think the devs wrote it this way. Every character has to be hit with the UwU factor, so they're not really characters anymore, just tropes you want to play with.
Forget the "tragic background" for each characters, they litterally don't care about their friends and family, Billy's more important (and the Lord they're following).
And yet, because apparently everyone wants "real" characters that don't feel like tropes, a major criticism of Awakening and Fates, the characters must say something. So, the devs acknowledge the bonds those characters have (because you must like a character, not a trope, even if the character is a trope) without making them really realise what they're doing.
Zihark would just be sad, but would skin Lethe :'(
What is Raphael even going to say? I joined the Empire because Rhea Bad? He joined because prof Billy is awesome, and you are supposed to feel bad for those poor students you can't recruit and it's supposed to be heartbreaking.
Not buying it. When IS uses such a cheap device to make us sad, it makes me mad instead. This is as stupid as Johan and Johalva deciding to kill each other because Larcei talked to the other first. I hate it.

Appearances can be deceiving.
The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king.”
But Samuel said, “How can I go? If Saul hears about it, he will kill me.”
The Lord said, “Take a heifer with you and say, ‘I have come to sacrifice to…

It is freezing, but it is a good thing
to step outside again:
you can feel less alone in the night,
with lights on here and there
between the dark buildings and trees.
Your own among them, somewhere.
