Digi's Theory on Road
...Well, at first I thought it was lame and totally stupid, but it was fun to believe in - hence why I posted all the references to it in the Q&A and Digi spam threads. Then I talked to Dante and he said it actually might be possible, so here goes.
Okay, here's the theory: what if Road was from a future time?
We know she can travel through dimensions and create her own; it's not impossible to believe that she travelled through time as well. She must have had some reason for doing so - and she also seems to be convinced of the good of Noah to change the world. Perhaps the Noah lost in the past, things ended up badly for Road/Road's family in the future, and she went back to change it?
Which brings me to the point of what other evidence there is. Among other things, Road is one of the only main/recurring characters to *not* have a bio page. That's odd, isn't it? There's a page that talks about her gender and likes/dislikes, but there's no information on her age, race, etc. - that's apparently something that will be revealed later.
...and that could mean that one of those bits of information could make things REALLY obvious.
Also, Road probably isn't dying anytime soon, and possibly never. Unlike Jasdevi, who seems destined to die at some point or another, and Tiki - who really is asking to be killed, isn't he? - it's easy to imagine Road surviving (and possibly going back to the future... ahahaha. no pun intended).
That seems like just a little too much speculation, I know. Remember how I used to bring up Chibiusa a lot when muttering about this? Yeah. Road kind of needs a family, and that's actually a big part of what led me to thinking about this theory.
So there's the candy-obsession thing, and the character-design-similarities thing... and if anyone begins to think along the lines that I'm thinking, it'd be a very good reason to not reveal very much about Road.
But I don't know, it's just sort of a random thing that I thought up and found evidence for, and I thought it's plausible and resolves pairings in a pretty decent way as well.
If I'm too vague, tell me... I get embarrassed about such topics and don't tend to write very much initally.
(Also, I did spend ages creating a picture in Paint that (badly) shows similarities in certain characters. See above. I did make a picture. I know, I have no life.)
*runs away in shame after posting this, but really needed to tell people what she was thinking... >_>*
Not a bad idea actually. That would actually be pretty cool
But as for her family... I might be wrong, but aren't the Noahs all supposed to be one family? Related? Aren't they supposed to be the Direct Descendants of Noah himself?
But yeah.... painting a picture in MS Paint showing the similarities of characters?..... Seriously DE, go outside. Just, even for 10 minutes. Just give it a go. You might like it!
I think that their family status is more of a formality, than a bond. They were chosen/born to be Noahs; therefore, they can consider themselves as family, yet, they are not exactly related.
Road is Rinali from the future which became Noah, but due to time travel her body changed too. Road wants Earl to win and she is compatible with Rinali's innocence - so she can send her dreams. Moreover, she likes Allen - that's for canon pairing.
Exorcist won the war, but with great cost. Most likely, Rinali in future lost all her friends and her brother to the war. Earl (somehow surviving, since he is devil himself) proposed Rinali he change this, if Rinali will help him. With power of "Heart" inside Rinali, he made her travel into the past, so she could change the future. Earl promised her new world where she can live with her friends, Allen and Komui peacefully. Little did she know that accepting Earl deal, her soul and heart would get corrupted.
Who said anyone died or will die It's all might already be going as future-Rinali planned - Crowley and Kanda are in coma, in size or in form which will let her take them to another world (supposedly, only Noah can survive so she needs to somehow trick everyone - remember, she is dealing with Earl who might now know everything about Road - she just appeared and she was more than fitting to become his servant). Now it's just Rabi's turn to become a little floppy disk.
I just think your theory lacks of...motive. What kind of motivation could Road have to go as far as travel in time ? Or maybe she is a love child of Allen and Rinali
...yeah, and having pancake friends is helpful... how? o_o I think Rinari and Road's personalities are too different - Road is younger, and probably experienced some traumatic event. Now, if my theory is correct...
...and come on, if she's their lovechild, what revenge could be better than knowing you spawned the most evil psycho thing ever? =P
Road likes akuma and hates humans. Since no one likes akuma except maybe Allen, and it's pretty illogical to hate your own race, something Bad could have happened. There are plenty of possibilities:
*Getting sent out to die in a mission. Therefore, Order = hate.
*I highly doubt anyone in that time would approve of a mixed marriage. Well... you get the idea.
*Backstabbing/betrayal from another Exorcist?
*If Allen = Noah, Noah are big targets for Exorcists. See above.
*...and maybe someone found out Allen cheated in a poker game and sent out a hit...
...eh, well, lots of opportunities for being messed up there. As for why she would go back in time... she's a Noah! Perhaps in her time the Noah lost, and things got messed up. If she allows the Noah to win, she can have a happy family. Or maybe she just messed things up and got stuck there accidentally; who knows.
Road (It isn't 'Rhode*, is it? I mean, the name translation) is the oldest Noah, right? Does that mean that she was the Noah whose Noah-"power" had awoken first? She isn't older that she looks, is she?
(Verbal) fight of titans....*sigh* I love reading the arguments of you two, DE-sama and Kolox-kun^^ Always VERY interesting with a (strong) pinch of humor^^

I lost my titan title, but I could agree with that - Road would most likely be the very first Noah.
Rinali + Traumatic experience + Dark matter = Road
Pancaking friends and keeping them near her = Making them survive worlds end
Road doesn't look like the type of character who cares about loosing or winning, she is somehow above that. And are you trying to tell me Road is Allen from the future ?
