Yes. She cared for Sheba in the end.
Nope. Sheba is with Solomon so she's evil.
I've really been wondering it myself. Yes she killed her, but I think it's possible that she did really believe she was going to be carrying on Sheba's will in her own twisted way. Plus she used her staff and her techniques and referred to her in a loving fashion during the hakuryuu fight.
So yeah, just wondering the consensus. Does anyone think she actually did care, or is she just a manipulative b**ch.
I don't think Arba was just a complete wretch at the time. She was simply a zealot who had witnessed the 'death' of her god, I don't think that immediately erased her feelings for those around her. Her fervent belief was simply of far greater value than her friendship with Solomon, or any of the others including Sheba. And she believed she was acting in everyone's best interests. Obviously, within the current era, she's a heartless witch. That took some time though.
I don't think she's heartless. There's a method to her madness is all. I'm quite certain she loved her children and husband in Kou as well, but she's someone that would make sacrifices for her beliefs. They were sacrifices, even if they were dear to her. That's what I think.
She just loved her god more, but hey look what she did to two husbands and her 3 sons so sheba got off lucky if you ask me.
I agree more or less with what you've all said. But I think her affection towards her current world relatives is artificial. Since they are part of Solomon's "corrupt world" and all.
I believe she loves sheba and even in the and she loves sheba but as everybody said she just love her god more.
And I think arba even tried to warn sheba.
I believe she really loved her family once but something happened and she chose to kill them.
And I think it may be something related to sinbad's birth.

As for Sheba, I believe she really loved and cared for her. Sheba sees her not only just an older sister, but like a mother. Arba had only changed when she saw her beloved "Father" being swept away by Solomon.
I feel like she honestly loved Sheba like a daughter. And that perhaps she killed her own husband and children because they reminded her of Sheba.
isn't that a bit suspicious that Arba left Sheba to die right after their fight, instead of killing her head on?
Physically, Arba is stronger than Sheba, and obviously she got the advantage. But both relied on a magic fight... Also, why didn't Arba killed the child in Sheba's womb?...
It's been a year since Alma Torran arc was released and I'm just realising these now...
I was hoping when she was fighting Hakuryuu and the old generals made their entrance that we learn a bit from them about her past with her husband.

As I post before I think she was really happy with her family.
Hakutoku's representation format,he is kinda person that can understand the good and evil (he has the same ideology with solomon and I think he guided by runk),so if her purpose was bad then why did hakutoku married her.
She called them after kou empire build
