This is something I have been thinking about for a while.... But zahard so far looks like a failed shounen hero basically. He has the googles, the clothes, he was the leader of him team that conquered the tower. Heck, he even had a love interest and a friend with whom he had rather violent fights that were stopped by the love interest. Zahard is literally every anime protagonist that had a MC that wore googles. Now, if zahard was the "protagonist" of his story it sort of makes sense that in his team he was the one meant to have the big destiny and whatnot. However zahard at some point simply went wrong. He apparently even went through his revolution and discovered the seed to be king.... Which eduan said the real zahard wouldn't say but still. And it was V who was apparently meant to be king. And of course, zahard got in the way of that and became king first ( I assume he called dibs and V simply couldn't break that contrat). And then went on to propose to arlen. And then murdered arlen's baby. And so on. So... did zahard gave up his own destiny to become king? To me this makes sense in which case we have to wonder what his actual destiny was. And this also made me think of something else... If zahard is basically a failed shonen hero then what is bam? We know this story has axis, who are people in control of stories. So perhaps bam is actually retribution from an author (axis?) to his main character for failing him? Screw arlen and her prophecy, it's SIU who is pissed off at zahard.
