In original Korean text, Rai uses the most respectable tone for only one person i.e. The Previous Lord. For other people, he uses the casual terms which have no sign of respect for the listener including Raskreia. He speaks with Raskreia in same way as he talks with Frankenstein or Children or clan leaders.
In Koean text, Previous Lord use casual terms which have no signs of respect for listener including Rai. Previous Lord called Rai a "Kid".
Raskreia uses the same tone as Rai for everyone (except her Father when She remembers him) which means casual terms which doesn't give any respect to the listener.
Review is out (here is a link for any who are interested)
The poll is on why you think Karias wants out of Lukedonia so badly.
I also think that Rai had more respect for the previous lord but I think he respects the title of lord regardless of who it is and would respond if summoned. Maybe at his own leisure but he'll show up. If that happens I think hed make Frankenstein stay behind to ensure everyone's safety. Or Rajak and Karias.
I was reading the chapter today .. suddenly i had the strange thought ... what actually is UNION ... is it actually the offspring of a noble & a Werewolf ?? ..
i think my prediction is this .. UNION is actually a combination of a Noble & Werewolf...
I think the reason why Rai didn't have shown any kind of respect to current lord is because she was on the wrong path before he enter Lukedonia. Now, I'm pretty sure he would have the same repect he had with previous Lord. (Also I believe if it was the previous Lord who went on wrong path he would stop showing Respect)
^Nope. Totally wrong. What wrong did Raskreia really did? Even when he talks with her during dinner, he uses a normal tone (the one he uses for Frankenstein & co.).
I believe both Rai and Raskreia are equal in status regardless of their titles & duties. The reason Rai probably "bowed" before Previous Lord is because he was either older than him or something along those lines.
You just brought up an interesting theory, considering the fact that it really does seem plausible.
It could be the only factor that Rai is not aware of himself. I don't think Lukedonia would want a werewolf hybrid staying around if they were even aware of its existence.
