Maybe he's hoping by that point all the brainwashing has, well, brainwashed her. :lol: Seriously, though, why else would he almost immediately marry her (besides being an lusty idiot :wink:)? I'm guessing what was left of her clothing when she washed up in Landen gave Maia and everyone else no clue as to her origins, so for all she knew she came from the dregs of society. Honestly, I'd be likely to take up a marriage offer from a prince I barely knew if I thought the alternative was medieval poverty. Rhys really had the upper hand here. Wolf. :knockout:

That's a good point. Rhys was totally blinded and probably thought, "Wow, she's hot. What's the worst that could happen? That she's a lowly barmaid from elsewhere or something?"

The possibility of her being an icky Layan probably never occurred to him.

Tanith, you strike up a good point about Maia and Lyle. I wouldn't doubt that Lyle was engaged to Maia. Cousin marriage is no secret in PSIII (*cough* AynandThea *cough*) and they're neighboring royals, much like Rhys and Lena's arranged marriage. It makes sense. Poor Lyle, and poor Lena; the people they love torn from them in a tragic(?) event! But this scenario further supports a Lyle x Lena ship. Lena and Lyle had to be pretty acquainted through the course of it all; Lena was waiting for Rhys and Lyle in Shushoran. Lyle would just allow Lena -- an Orakian princess -- to hang out in his kingdom, which battled Argo, the Orakian town next door, and he didn't know/trust her!? No way. They had to be pretty close.

Oh, man. PSIII is a total soap opera. :

I committed a posting violation, and the post in between RW's last two posts got deleted. :oops: Sorry, everyone. I felt the need to repost it (without the violation) so that RW's last post would make more sense. Just pretend this is in between RW's posts. :wink:

The more we discuss this, the more I think Rhys is really thick-headed. I have to wonder if anything occurred to him during the entire quest. So many things happened during his quest that, if it had been me, I'd have either demanded some explanations from Lyle or I would have just said, "Screw this, I'm going home!" :D Poor Rhys.

Poor Lyle, too, though. As much as he played Rhys like a violin, I think the guy had his world turned upside down (and not just frozen). I think he was engaged to Maia and had feelings for her. (Yes, there is some cousin ickyness there, but hey, this is PSIII we're talking about.) What if she had feelings for him up until her memory was wiped clean? :( I found this pic:

Tell me there's not more than just protection of a family member going on there. That look on Lyle's face... wow.

I'm starting to wonder if we should join fanfiction forces, Tanith. ;)

I've always thought the same about that picture - she did a great job conveying emotion in it.

I was following this interesting topic silently and now I decided to put some words on it.

First, I don't think it is possible for Sari to be Rhys' daughter. Considering that Lena was a princess, she wouldn't want to have a baby from a guy she didn't marry. I know the fact that she was Rhys fiancée makes the connection possible, but I don't think she would do that, considering the responsibility she has as a princess. From the game we can get that she is a responsible person and she sacrifices her position as a former Rhys' fiancée to help him to find Maia, the girl he wanted to marry.

By the way, I think Lena being Rhys' promised fiancée not a good idea for the game, since it raise lots of questions, some which I addressed in a fanfic. If Rhys was promised to a neighbor kingdom princess, why did they let him marry with a complete stranger? We can consider that Lena helps Rhys because she really loves Rhys and wants him to be happy, regardless if it is with her or not. We can consider this true if Rhys really loves Maia and is not only infatuated with her. But would Rhys really love a girl he knew months before and with amnesia? Would Lena really love Rhys when it is clear in the game the they have never met before the first encounter on Landen palace dungeon?

Considering these questions, I can only come with the conclusion that Rhys is just infatuated with Maia, who is said in the game to be the cutest girl and sweet. Lena was just infatuated with Rhys. Rhys, after the quest, could really fall for Lena, since she sacrificed herself for him, but I don't think Lena would love Rhys in the end of the quest, seeing that he did everything he did because of another woman. Maia too would, most probably, not love Rhys because she would have the time to do what Rhys' father suggested and he didn't: to cool of and see her responsibility as a princess. In doing so, she would realize that Rhys was just infatuated with her, forgetting his responsibility as a prince, and that she would only marry him because she didn't have a better alternative. Rhys would end without both Lena and Maia and would settle by marrying Mieu, who was made to serve his master, so the perfect wife :p (just kidding, girls :wink: ). But I really think Rhys doesn't deserve neither Lena, who he jilted before, nor Maia, who he was abusing with his power.

We could always chalk it down to Rhys' people fell in love with Maia.

She also uses some unique abilities and the people want their prince happy.

Lena coulda been raised to be his fiancee and Rhys parents coulda refused it.

It would be like COMING TO AMERICA. The princess was raised her whole life to be Akeem's wife and he gave her up.

"Love" drives people to do crazy, irresponsible, stupid things. Dopamine is to blame.

I think Lena's actions, i.e., to risk her life in battle and travel to layan lands, all so Rhys can find the girl he inadvertently dumped her for, to be a great, unselfish, and loving act. Not to mention, all that traveling around with Rhys probably enabled the two to get to know each other -- the real Rhys and the real Lena, fully aware -- quite well.

I agree with you that Rhys is just infatuated with Maia. And I agree that Lena was infatuated with Rhys, but I think it grew into love, after getting to know him through their quest. Either way, we can agree that Lena deserves better than Rhys, who seems to quite an emotional and impulsive dude.
