I think at last I know what it was the stain of blood shown at page 21 of chapter 66 !!!
After reading some of the comments about Rido here . Seeing again the pic of Kaname carrying Rido's blood stain of chapter 44 .
I think the blood stain it is indeed Rido .
So it's possible Rido is literally inside Kaname .
It this is true . Rido could try to use Kaname's body for his own agenda in the near future .( Aka : regenerating his body )
Mm …We can’t exclude the possibility the stain on the floor to be Rido’s blood … However I have many reservations regarding the assumption that Rido can use Kaname’s body or that has the power to make Kaname do evil things. Ofc we are talking about fantasy-supernatural so the boarders are almost unlimited and everything can happen, thus there is space for many theories.
Personally I wouldn’t like such unfoldment cuz I would find it an “easy” trick/way from the author to “justify” certain choices, as for example that Kaname had to leave Yuuki behind, I would like something more complex than that … but this is only my preference.
But with the facts that we have thus far from the story I think there is some points that contradict such development. I’ll try to track them down.
1. When Rido awakened Kaname, Kaname took/drank Rido’s blood directly >>
>> so Rido in a way was inside Kaname from the very beginning of his “second” life. However even in that incomplete and weak state that Kaname was right after his awaking, Rido couldn’t defeat him or make him obey his orders. Kaname countered Rido, damaging his body and stopping his evil plan on the spot.
2. Furthermore in spite that Rido was “inside” Kaname all along, we saw Kaname, even as a child, to defeat again Rido scattering him into thousand pieces when Rido attacked at the Kurans’ mansion to take Yuuki. Kaname couldn’t kill Rido once and for all but Rido as well couldn’t defeat or influence Kaname thus his plan came to halt again.
3. Rido was defeated again by Kaname’s plan after Yuuki’s awaking … and Kaname destroyed as well the senate and Asato i.e. Rido’s allies.
So how and where Rido had any kind of influence on Kaname thus far? Wouldn’t he realize it earlier? And I wonder; the fragments of Rido’s blood that attached to Kaname’s coat bearing more power to influence him than his blood that Kaname took directly from him?
IMO, no … from what I know and have understood from the plot. Also as we know drinking from someone is like taking inside you the powers and the memories from that person … so even IF Yuuki couldn’t take Rido’s evilness cuz she didn’t drink directly from him, however taking in account this theory, Yuuki must have taken Kaname’s “evil” side … the side that is influenced by Rido no; something that I doubt that we’ll ever see … I mean an evil side in Yuuki.
Furthermore … Kaname lived with Yuuki under the same roof for a year with the stated intention to spend with her millions of nights. So when he realized that he must distance himself from Yuuki in order not to harm her under Rido’s “spell”? When Rido first appeared in the mausoleum? But at that time Kaname, most likely from what we saw later, had taken his decision to actualize his original plan, thus he was tortured from his contradictions. And in any case eventually Kaname “set” Yuuki free … so again Rido didn’t push him in an evil direction.
IMHO Kaname’s original plan – the one that it is running currently – never actually stopped. He hesitated to proceed with it yes, as he said as well, but from the words he said to the senate “you are the firsts to go” and especially after he found out that Sara had “captured” Takuma, which I think it happened very early, he knew that the bloody game was continuing … thus what made him to leave her was Sara’s plans (and whatever more it might be still hidden) and not Rido’s influence.
For me Rido is used from Hino as a “tool” to show us Kaname’s inner thoughts, fears, contradictions etc since there is no one else to share them. She is using Rido’s fragments/spirit as a mirror to project Kaname’s POV.
Though I’ve been thinking too that Rido might have a bigger role on the story in the future but a role that will have to do with the past … the part of Kaname’s past that it is still unknown. I think there is plenty of room there for the author to include Rido in Kurans’ past.
For the above reasons I can’t bring myself to believe in this theory at least with what we have in our hands till now but I could be wrong.
