Thoughts About Raiden Shogun

Character In-Game Thoughts Ayaka Guesswork: The Almighty Shogun? It would be improper of me to comment, given that I am one of her subjects. All I will say is that… I think that Her Excellency must get lonely on the road to eternity. Standpoint: To witness the Musou no Hitotachi and live to tell the tale is quite a remarkable feat. Even though I recognize her as our true deity with the power to change Inazuma’s fate at will, if there is conflict between the two of you, then… I shall choose to side with you. Ayato About Raiden Shogun The cost of pursuing eternity has been great for the Almighty Shogun… and for all of Inazuma. These wounds will take time to heal, and as someone with a mediating role to play in the political process, I will be sure to fulfill that which is required of me. Gorou Grr, the Raiden Shogun… I could never bring myself to accept her past actions, no matter what her reasoning may have been. Though a peace treaty has been signed between Watatsumi Island and the Shogunate, I refues to let my guard down. If conflict ever breaks out again, I will resume my place back on the front line. Itto During the Vision Hunt Decree, the Shogun had to send her top tengu in person to get my Vision off me. Heh, means she must have found me to be quite the pain in the neck. But, y’know, she’s abolished the Vision Hunt Decree now, so no hard feelings, I guess. As long as she’s learned her lesson, of course. ‘Cause if she pulls something like that again, this old pain in the neck will be back with a vengeance. Kazuha About Raiden Shogun I’ve asked myself this question many times since leaving Inazuma. Do I simply resent the Raiden Shogun because of what happened in that duel? Because of the lethal-stroke she dealt my dear friend? I’ve thought about this a good long time, and I believe the answer is no. My friend died an honorable death in that duel, and the Shogun was not unjustified in her conduct. My dissatisfaction with her has its roots in the Vision Hunt Decree. No-one has the right to rob another of their hopes and dreams — not even a god. Kirara Parcels sent to Tenshukaku are all packaged intricately with multiple layers of wrapping. Maybe that’s what they call a package fit for the Almighty. Shogun. Some of them smell really good… I wonder what’s inside. Kokomi About Raiden Shogun Now that the Vision Hunt Decree is over, Watatsumi Island has since again returned to normal life. It has never been my intent to scrutinize the rights and wrongs of the Shogun’s actions, even to this day. What I do care about is the future of our island. It is my hope that the Shogun will fulfill her promise and that we can live with the Shogunate in peace. However, if there comes a day when she once again casts aside the aspirations of the people, I can assure you that we won’t sit by and watch. Sara Trust: As I’m sure you’ve heard many times before, the Almighty Shogun seeks Eternity — an existence beyond the dominion of thought and longing. “Abandon mortal ties, strive for an unchanging Eternity”… The Almighty Shogun’s manner is always resolute, and I do not always fully grasp the meaning of her words. But this is her decision, and I trust her. Service: So, the Vision Hunt Decree was repealed… Yes, it seems that you were right. …Ahem, but this is not to say that the Almight Shogun made a mistake. She has simply chosen eternity by a different route. I do not know whether the Shogun has finally found inner peace after protecting Inazuma over these millennia. All I know is that however perilous the road ahead may become, I will follow her as I have always done. Sayu About Raiden Shogun Her Excellency? Definitely not someone I’d ever get to meet. If you’ve got questions, maybe Miss Ayaka’s the person to ask. Shinobu After the Sakoku Decree was lifted, the Raiden Shogun issued many decrees aimed at supporting the development of various industries. All those certificates I received during the Sakoku Decree are coming in real handy now, and the gang is finally out of the red… Fate really does have its ways. Who would’ve thought after all that, I’d still have her to thank? Thoma Comparison: In my homeland of Mondstadt, almost everyone has great reverence for the Anemo Archon, Barbatos. But people in Inazuma feel a little differently toward the Shogun. How can I put this… They fell love, respect, gratitude… but also fear. The Unknown: Honestly, I don’t harbor any resentment toward the Shogun. Yes, she almost took my Vision away, but ultimately that’s just because of her unique perspective. Everyone has their own perspective, there’s nothing strange about that. The only thing I don’t understand is her goal in doing so. What does she imagine eternity really look like for Inazuma? And why is sacrificing her people’s aspirations so necessary to achieve it? I can neither understand nor agree with her approach. Venti About Baal So, I hear you defeated the mighty Raiden Shogun? Ah, I recall the days when she was a kagemusha, seeking to perfect her martial prowess. Hehe, she now no doubt employs a wide range of reasoning to get you to train with her. Oh but yes, come close and I shall let you in on her weakness – desserts! Wanderer About Raiden Shogun She completely neglected her own creation, and to add insult to injury, she said it was because she “couldn’t bring herself to intervene” in my fate… Yae Miko Locking herself away in the Plane of Euthymia when she clearly wants to be out — it’s just willful self-torture, really… On the other hand, it’s also rather stubborn-but-cute, don’t you think? Yoimiya Fireworks are probably the furthest thing from the “eternity” that the Shogun pursues. She probably feels that their transient glory has no practical purpose in Inazuma. It’s probably something that one who has “eternity” in their grasp will find hard to comprehend. It is precisely because we mortals are like fleeting shadows that we need to treasure such flickers of beauty. Zhongli About Baal Time tempers all volition. Yet she would give up everyone for her beliefs. Perhaps it is for this very reason that she has come to where she stands today… Should the chance come by me, I too would like to learn of the Eternity for which she so earnestly endeavors.

Raiden Shogun’s Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts Ayaka About Ayaka Kamisato… One of the most distinguished clans in all of Inazuma. Eh? That’s exactly what the Shogun said? Well, A—Ayaka’s also well-versed in the art of the sword. Ayato About Ayato Kamisato… One of the most distinguished clans in all of Inazuma. Despite Ayato’s trickery in regard of the Tri-Commission’s affairs, he is nevertheless a loyal subject. His past misdeeds shall be excused. Itto About Itto Who? Nahida About Buer I admire her humility; it is a sign of true wisdom. With the power she holds, Buer is capable of doing many things beyond our wildest imaginations… and yet, she uses her power only to right wrongs and to protect. She is a truly gentle god. Thoma About Thoma I can’t deny that I am somewhat culpable in the events that lead to him being almost stripped of his vision, but I rather think the Shogun should be the one to extend a formal apology to him… Okay, fine. I’ll give it some thought… Wanderer About Kunikuzushi He came about as a byproduct of creating the Shogun. Perhaps it’s because I feel like I owe him something, but I do not wish to assert control over him.
