A thread dedicated to specific Crow-only discussions, the mysterious new force and speculatins regarding them.
What do we know about them?
- They are veryvery secret
- They are assasins
- They are spies
- They are controlled by Orders Higher-Ups
- They have some wierd spells nature of which is unknown
All of this makes me assume they are some kind of killer/spy agency that works for Order. Still, a lot of questions remain. Like - how many of them are around? From what we have seen in chapter which showed the last dialog between Cross and Allen it seems that there are more of them then exorcists at least - in that room were like 5-6 Crows, and obviously it was hardly the majority of them. Meaning, if we assume that the one who killed Cross in a Crow member, there are enough of them to elliminate all exorcists. And what we have seen from Links performance, they are pretty strong too. If Digi's hypothesis is correct, and their primary goal is to take out Noah, then it must mean that Order has more then enough resource to execute that, since number of Crow members can be really high - unlike exorcists they do not require innocence to be trained, only number of intructors is what limits them, hence a lot of great assasine can easily be created. This rises two questions (for now ;P) though - first is - why did Crow members not go with Exorcists to Japan - if their goal was to find Cross and bring him back - and assuming Order knew about Japan being Earl's nest they should have expected to meet Noahs there. Thus it would be logical to send a couple or more anti-Noah killers - Crow members there - while they can't kill akuma, since innocence is necessary for that, they can take care of Noah easily. And having exorcists cover them from Akuma would have provided a great shield and thus creating a really strong force. Such attack could have really brought trouble to Earl. Maybe even destroying several decades of his preparations for ragnarok.
Second is - why were Crow members not protecting Generals when it was discovered that Noahs are after them? Same logic applied here.
