@Mighty Escanor I actually made a post on escanor being a demigod a while backWho the hell is Escanor? A prince born 40 years ago in Castellio kingdom, a cursed child who was randomly given Sunshine and could mysteriously endure such a strong magic power from a nonhuman race? Why his father was so afraid of his appearance?
For a long time, I thought the only reliable info about Escanor's life is provided by Gowther's technique, Nightmare Teller, during Vaizel festival arc. There was no reason to doubt their reliability other than Merlin's final shit talk about how they can't be together. But chapter 296 may have shown us a truth deeper than that of Nightmare Teller. I checked chapter 296 discussion thread, but I found no mention of it there. Plz let me know if my post is similar to an existing one. However, let's begin...
1.When Escanor explains why Galan can't hold the axe, he says it's named after a maiden loved by the Sun. Based on the fact that he didn't know the nature of his own power, Escanor was most probably telling a myth someone else had told him about Rhitta. But Nakaba most probably used it as a huge foreshadowing. It was later revealed that Sunshine is a grace and the former wielder of it was Mael the Sun. Mael loved Elizabth who has no connection to the divine axe at all. So there should be another one with the title of Sun who used to love a maiden called Rhitta. Was there another Archangel who had given Sunshine before Mael? What happened to him?
2.Among all of goddess clan members, only seven individuals had more than one pair of wings so far. SD, Eli, the four AAs, and Ludo's dead friend. We can see his right lower wing beneath his armpit in the middle panel. Although the fact that he was killed by a red demon is really suspicious, but considering how disappointing night Escanor and even post noon Mael are, his death is justifiable imo. Another interesting fact is that the girl he died protecting closely resembles Rosa as mentioned by @Kinguxsloth in chapter 296 discussion.
Is that just a coincidence? Or another foreshadowing? Rosa is the one who saves Escanor and former Sun AA sacrifices his life to protect a girl(?) who looks like Rosa to some extents.Please register to see the content of this post.mangahelpers.com
3. Ludo doesn't mention anything about a lover, he believes his friend just wanted to protect a life. Considering how racist the angels were, maybe the dead AA didn't have the courage to tell his best friend about his secret. That he loves a girl who is not a member of GC. So nobody knows the extent of their relationship. Did they marry in secret or something like that?
4. With all the weird stuff like freezing time, immortality, mindfucking, brainwashing, and other types of magic used in NnT universe, it's just natural to doubt the credibility of memories about Castellio, or the exact date of birth. The reason is provided by Nakaba in chapter 296.
This one can be a mere illusion made up by my Escanor seeking eyes. The point here is that the girl might not be alone, but holding a baby in her arms.
It's a very weak argument, each part of it can be terribly wrong, or a simple wishful thinking. But if we assume the man is the Sun, and the woman is Rosa, and if there is really a baby held by her, who else can he be other than Escanor. There are still lots of questions to be answered like why he was still a baby 40 years ago,
and why Rosa wasn't introduced as his mother. But it explains why Sunshine chose Escanor after leaving Mael and why Escanor's bodily response to the power of grace was different from normal humans.
However, knowing that NnT is full of amnesiac or mindfucked characters, like Estarossa, Hawk mama, Diane, Elizabeth, and even doll Gowther, I won't be surprised if Escanor is one of them too. So I choose to doubt his own memories revealed to us by Nightmare Teller technique. In fact, now that Mel and Eli's curse is solving, investigating other dark secrets of GC and their leader's wrongdoings would be interesting imo.
Theory: Escanor is a Demigod? Alright so let me just start at what we know at the very beginning of Escanor’s life (or what we’ve seen of it thus far) Does anybody find it strange that his ‘parents’ was just now naming him? If the mother did give birth to him wouldn’t you think she would...
