I really hope I’m reading too much into it, because I feel put off just writing about this.
But, among everything else, Sylvanas’s most important character moment was the trauma inflicted on her by Arthas and how it shaped her perception of the world thereafter. Her story has been compared more than once to that of a rape analogy, specifically because of the way her spiritual torture is described.
Now, there’s been concerns that some later material seems to have partially detracted from Arthas’s role in this, such as his soul being immediately stolen when he took up Frostmourne, the whispers in his head, etc. If it’s true that the newest retcon for Shadowlands is that the Jailer is actually the being responsible for these whispers…
Well, am I imagining it, or has Blizzard inadvertently written a story where Sylvanas has chosen to become a co-conspirator with the person actually responsible for abusing her in the first place?
