Yumiko: I have t-ten people inside of me? B-but why is Yumie the only one who comes out?

Heinkel: Because that’s how we conditioned you. Every personality that Iscariot can’t use has been suppressed.

Yumie’s a berserker without morals. She’s a perfect assassin. But we don’t have the resources to supervise her all the time when she’s off duty. That’s where you come in.

You’re not the original personality, Yumiko. You’re just the only one old enough to take care of yourself, but not reckless or confident enough to ever think of running away. We’ve been using you too.

Oh man… Yumiko is NOT going to be happy!

Man. Yumiko’s a sweetheart, but I don’t know if anyone could forgive something like that. At least not for a loooong time.

Gosh darn it, Erin, does this pairing really need any more obstacles? 😛

If she believes strongly enough that it’s for the greater good she might still forgive it. Of course, her being told that it wasn’t her fault and she can’t be blamed for Yumie’s actions might cause some doubt there as well. Though on the other hand Yumiko not being at fault for Yumie’s existence doesn’t negate the fact that Yumie does exist. What I think their reasoning might be: even if Iscariot hadn’t suppressed the other personalities she’d still be there, and while she might not come out as often she’d still hurt a lot of people when she did, so it would be best to put that violence to a good cause rather then have it unleashed on innocents. Mind you that doesn’t address the possibility of somebody getting her help so nobody got hurt, but this is Iscariot we’re talking about here.

Anyway, something that caught my eye here is Heinkel saying that the Yumiko personality was the only one submissive and old enough to take care of herself. So, does that mean that Yumi has a child personality? And if so, how young are we talking here? Is it more along the lines of a young teen/grade-school student mind, or are we talking really young, like, Barney and absorbent underpants just in case? Or is it something else entirely, such as the other personalities that wouldn’t rebel haven’t developed enough or something to act coherently at all times?

And I’m still holding out of a Napoleon.

If Iscariot was only in the business of getting rid of vampires, that would still bring this view to a morally grey area. But it’s vampires and heretics (and pagans probably) they target, so Yumi is targeted on innocents and humans too boot.

Mind you I’m not saying you’re wrong. Yumiko might try to rationalize what was done to her exactly how you outlined it.

I’m left feeling that Maxwell’s canon death wasn’t painful enough. And my copy of Dante’s Inferno is at home so researching which circle of hell he’ll end up in will have to wait. As much as I love Erin’s waiting room for those who got in Integra’s way, Maxwell deserves the more gory punishments Hell is capable of.

I would hate to think that Yumie was the original personality! 😮

Heh. *sheepish* That was my original theory.

How dare you, it’s called a Chupathingy. 😛

Well, in Yumiko’s eyes it’s a good cause. Plus, I’m thinking she’s a little susceptible to suggestion, and, well, if Maxwell says it’s right…
