Riful of the West, Evil? or just Misunderstood?
Very briefly speaking (since I have limited time before my bus gets here) does anyone think Riful isn't really all that evil at all? The way I see her, she's more like just there trying to survive than to go about destroying other creatures for the sheer fun of it. She doesn't even seem all that interested in world domination. All the action Riful took I think it was all towards her own survival instincts kicking in when people around her are being inconsiderate and rude to go poke their sticks in her domain/house/cave.
Riful is also not too unreasonable (to a degree) and she was patient enough to keep her promise to Clare by telling her about the current times, whats happened and some classified info she collected on her way. She also didn't kill Clare/Jean/Galatea on the spot when she could have just tortured all of them until they awakened to join her ranks. I think Riful just wants to live a quiet life holed up in her cave than to actively seek fights unless theres one right under her nose, begging her to go crush it.
