Editing note: Today I had a surprise enlightening moment about Corvus and a flaw in the storytelling I hadn’t noticed before. I tried to force something different onto Corvus the character than what apparently was bound to happen. I overestimated the chemistry between him and Asmund or at least did not take into account that the events change Corvus fundamentally. He is not Asmund’s meek and daydreaming admirer from academy anymore when they meet again. That screams for a good look at the script and possible rewrites into a new direction I could not even imagine before.
