Sometimes I wonder, though. If Solar Kingdom (Lapierre) and True God Church (Cynthia) were so compatable... why the distinction between the two? I sometimes wonder if True God Church is really an evil organization opposite to the Solar Kingdom... Between Inquisition Raid Leader, Shadow Spirit, Bardia, and a few others, it certainly seems like they could be working for some questionable purpose.
Inquisition Raid Leader: "They locate those who oppose their doctrine, and dispose of them in secret."
Shadow Spirit: "A side effect of experimenting with powerful light spells, magic shadows are cast that can trap evil souls inside. Officially, doing such a thing on purpose is forbidden, but shadow monsters are used to protect churches
all over the Solar Kingdom.
Bardia: "If you are brought before him, it is no better than being brought before Death himself." Taken from the EX version, because I don't have the regular flavour test (if it is different). However, from the card list, I can see that regular Bardia is basically Lawtia's "Merciless Death" grimoire. 3 SP to play Bardia and another 3 SP to activate the auto skill is the same as paying 6 SP to play Merciless Death... Except that Bardia is actually more SP efficient, because he only requires a sphere investment of 3.
Fortune: "She disciplines people as she pleases, calling it divine punishment."
Cudgel: "His faith in the One True God is absolute, but many wonder if his faith is really true justice."
Unfortunately I don't have many of the True God Church characters, but I think the pattern is clear. :O
