Ha, ha, so many points and so good points that I am having problems to keep up..I do not know what to answer first, and what last but I will try in order not to miss anything, here it goes…
I think in this page, Yuuki finally decides to accept her nature, herself and apparently all the obligations and roles that go with it. She has decided to walk the same path as Kaname…
as Aidou says to Zero when he is captive at the HA; Yuuki is doing her best to follow the same path with Kaname.
Later on, that path leads her to the role of the peacemaker and the guardian of humans lives…
Kaname recognizes that this is the path that she shall follow in general in her life, despite not wanting that for her, despite not wanting that for himself either (not after he has lived happily to her side and his hopes are small that this society will ever change) he lives to fulfill his plan.
So does Nagamichi. A chapter before he died, he said to Yuki, “someone like you... can you really go against him/ stop him from now on? ” He had an idea that suggest Kaname was going to do something wrong, also, ever wonder why he made it his business to “chase” after Sara or know that she was wrong?
Very, very good observation that leads my thoughts further…, Aido’s dad is speaking like he already knows what Kaname is going to do…I agree that there is more in this discussion that we have not seen. Also, could it be that Aidou’s dad is aware of Kaname’s plan…?
Right now Yuuki is the representative (or is holding this place ) of the agreement sealed between Kaname and the hunters. In reality, her position now stands opposite to Kaname.
If Kaname goes on killing and hurting or pulls a plan that stirs all the vampire society, Yuuki’s official role gives her the right to go against him, find him, and stop him. (Not to mention that this gives her a legal excuse to the hunters, in order to chase him…).
So, it’s like Aidou’s dad refers to that fact. How is she going to stop him? Such a little existence, how is she going to stand against a powerful pureblood?
Why to stand against? Or to stop him? Does he know what Kaname is up to? Why is he following Sara, just because he accidently saw the car passing by?
As you Solace so I am having the same unexplained questions here.
The only thing that I can think of is that he knows Kaname’s plan and he knows that according to that plan, Yuuki is going to place herself opposite to Kaname. Theferore he expresses his own worries and also hints her about the future and advises her not to quit.
When he sees Sara’s car, Aido’s dad rushes to prevent a bad think happening. I think that he knows from Kaname who is watching over Hanadagi’s castle that Hanadagi will to be Sara’s next target. He goes there but he is unable to change a pureblood’s thinking.
As Solace said Kaname is like observing the whole attack, because he wants to take advantage of all that and kill Hanadagi when the time seems right. Allowing Sara to get away with the ancestor’s powers and going unseen, is something that is left to be explained.
About Aido’s dad, he is very respectful towards the purebloods. Yet, his family’s perceptions stand in the side of the monarch and so are the kids, Ruka, Kain, Aidou who are all related.
During Asato’s council, Aidou fanction opposes to Asato.
As stated in the fanbook… The Senate is divided into two fanctions-one that supports the Senate, and one that wants to return to monarchy. The Ichijo family, the longest-serving members of the Senate, and the Shiki family are presentatives of the pro-senate faction. The Aido family is anti-Senate.
Aidou’s relations and support to the Kurans runs deep, therefore one can realize the extension of the shock that the pureblood society must have experienced, not so much with Hanadagi’s death (here the shock is about the sanctity that concerns the purebloods) but Aidou’s murder;
This is a true reason that Kaname can be characterized “bersek”, “dangerous to his own people”, “untrusted” and make all the vampire society to lose its faith to him. He is causing that intentionally I believe, he erases his own power, in a way he erases another pureblood that can be seen and followed by fear, the “Queen” as Nina said. He does not want that role anymore, perhaps in order to fulfill his plans that role may not be convenient anymore.
Now he opens the way for Yuuki and the night class to substitute him in power and bring a new form of power to rule vampire society that involves true feelings and bonds and not blind faith and fear. Kaname wishes for a thinking vampire society.
This is certainly a part, that Aidou’s murder could serve along with other points that we may not know. But even that does not justify Aidou’s dad murder, especially infront of the eyes of Yuuki and Aido since he risks their love and trust.
I still find difficult believing and justifying with the current notion.
Unless the crime is predetermined as the two men seem to talk. So, this is an agreed murder. I have the idea (crazy I know) that there is no murder. Aidou’s dad seems to notice that the weapon that Kaname holds hurts him and that Kaname cannot wield it or it is hurting him that much.
In that moment, Kaname shares something to him. Can it be that he is affected by the tablets and he needs to act now? or that he needs an excuse to pass to the opposite side and he also needs to do it now since it’s also his golden opportunity to promote Yuuki’s role in this society?
He can sense that Yuuki is coming, the same way Yuuki sensed his presence in Hanadagi’s castle so he can definitely determine that Yuuki is coming.
So can it be a fake murder? It’s a very long shot, perhaps there are more underlying there that we can’t know. But that’s the best explanation I can think of now.
Okay, it just struck me…idea bolt flashed….”Protectors of the Pureblood”…
Kaname doubts the sanctity of the purebloods….
Therefore Hanadagi, is a straight opponent who apparently, if he lived he would oppose to the purebloods killing, even the ones who clearly do not deserve having a life, protecting their existences.
So, Kaname takes him out, when the chance appears. He is taking advantage of Sara’s attack at the castle to kill him as he had done with Zero huring Shizuka.
Totally the reversed procedure followed but it is just the same. It seems that Kaname does not want to miss the chance to kill Hanadagi on the spot, now that he is more vulnerable and he knew that Sara would open for him the way to strike.
@ kaname’s despair…
Solace, yes, yes, yes, very good job there…another parameter in Kaname’s despair is that he has almost lost hope that this vampire society is going to change.
Therefore, his efforts to maintain and to regulate peace, after Yuuki is saved, seem to be enough. The scan where he talks to the hunters and says that way is long is the key.
There is the long way, the peaceful way, the right way, in which he is situated now (meaning according to the scan), and profoundly has decided to postpone his own initial plan (after founding happiness next to Yuuki) that is as you say drastic and violent meant to shake the vampire society and he does not want to hurt others.
But the circumstances along with Yuuki’s decision to emerge in this society, a society that has not changed, no matter the sacrifices and the years that have passed, brings him in the position to decide, that it’s time to put his own plan into action.
No matter the cost and the risk he is taking, he also wishes no more sacrifices for the ones he loves, so he sets out...with the hope (I believe) that this time he shall manage to make a safe world for all and Yuuki of course, with ways other than the way of patience and hope and good ways, because history told him that these ways brought nothing more than misery, despair, death, sacrifices. I tend to believe that now he wants the shurcut way, he is in a hurry to protect the ones he loves.
Therefore, this time he does not hesitate any longer to realize his own plans in order to achieve faster what so many centuries of wars and fights with so many innoncent dead, did not achieve.
I think that this is his thinking. I believe that he intends to sacrifice himself this time after the completion of his plan and I think that the one who is going to do it (he thinks) is going to be Yuuki because he granted her that role along with the role to regulate the vampire society and to keep the peace and this is going to inevitably bring them in opposition. This is what I think.
So it’s now in Yuuki’s hands to stop him…
Also here is what I found;
in the fanbook: The crime of killing purebloods is the vampire’s society greatest offense.
So I think that after all Aidou’s dad referred to killing purebloods.
@ Nina, about Yuki's theories in kaname's past we had made this thread, if any theory comes and you want to add someting, http://vampireknight.all-up.com/t11p20-the-ancestor-theories
