OK before I go into why I believe that Mini is the new Shadow Lord, I must explain a little about tarutarus first.
Tarutarus are a selfish race, fixed upon power. They tend to be strong in magik and feel that gives them superiority in the world. Basically they an inferiority complex.
We have all heard of the great plans of the Tarutarus to take over all of Vana'diel. This was a secret to many of their race became over confident and bragged of their great plan. As far as I know, they have not ceased in their efforts to engulf the world with their might.
Now in order for this plan to work, I would think they need to stop the two largest race, in form of population, Humes and Elvaans. Now Elvaans are tricky. Htey are strong of mind and feirce fighters, but to weaken the Humes, they attecked Bastok.
Bastok was not attacked in the form of direct combat, but by hurting the image of the gentle giants of Bastok, the Galkas. As I have stated already, Tarutarus are strong in magik, probably the strongest in all of Vana'diel. It would be very easy for them to make you think that the Shadow Lord was a Galka., giving us the image of them being evil. By inflicting damage on the image of the Galks, they have successfully hurt Bastok over all. Hence lowering the strength of the Humes.
This leads me to the present day, where we have a new Shadow Lord, one which we have taken in false pretense. For all of us who are rank 6, know tha the Shadow Lord is an "evil" Galka, or is this an illusion created by the Tarutarus to fool us?
Now to my dear friend, Minimaru. She is very kind Tarutaru, almost to kind. She gains the trust and love of those around her way to eaisly, why and how does she do this? Only her and Star Sybil would know that.
She first level'd a RDM to 75, making her a strong Tarutaru by any means. Then She turned to RNG, a formidble foe to fight, Now she is a mighty SMN. Why SMN? Well from what I have gathered in my travels throughtout Vana'diel, it appears that the Tarutarus have enlisted new help.
Fenrir and Carbuncle have joined the Tarutarus in their quest for power. They have given their spirits to Minimaru to control, as well as their ally avator's spirits. This could mean the doom for all other races within Vana'diel.
I remember once I asked Minimaru to help me venture to the Throne of the Shadow Lord and defeat him. She replied, " I'm busy atm, sorry." I was ok with this and found several other strong adventures to help me defeat him. I though nothing of this till I went to tell her the good news tht we had saved Vana'diel, she was in Xarcabard. Why I do wonder, maybe resting after a long battle with 6 mighty adventures.
She is in the middle of the whole plot for tarutarus to take full control of Vana'diel and turn us into servants of the Tarutaru nation. I only hope we have time to stop them.......
