I am not sure why they let still Kaien be as the president of the
HA...because he is the oldest and also a legendary vampire hunter, so
certainly a good front cover. More than this, his pacifism and his
ideals are really good for all as you suggested humans and vampires. So
he sounds exactly as the really good candidate for that position.
im thinking along the same lines as you, Kaien's beliefs would serve the purpose of being the Fragrant Leader. I don't believe his powers fit him in that position though, as we saw his beliefs as a hunter has changed, and this means he won't use it as a hunter but rather as an Agent of Peace. Yagari seems to follow orders from the influential human families who want vampire abilities as shown in chapter 51. The powerful humans would want to see a leader that takes care of humans and vampires (Kaien) and after the incident with Rido attacking the academy I think this boost is needed--to keep the faith of the humans with the hunters, IMO, and as Yagari said, perhaps to be in good terms with this influential humans. Though somehow I think there are other possibilities as to why Kaien became a figurehead
This is a moment perhaps where the rope can no longer hold Kaien as
the facade of the HA, because as he declared to Kaname, he will not
support unexcused killings but we know that the real president of the HA
yes and it could be the reason why the hunters have now gathered together to discuss about it---(perhaps to talk about how they are going to finish Kaien off)
In a way the situation becomes ironic for Kaien. And it is ironic
already as he aided Kaname to kill Touma without even realizing, he was
manipulated into "buying" Kaname's sayings really easily. What in
reality led Kaien to be used was his own impulses.
Imagine what he's going to do next...
He is already guilty for killing Touma, and the hunters MAY get this as an excuse to get rid of him as a facade, IF they are what they seem to be.
On the other hand, Kaien is caught in a battle of belief and logic--to tell Yuki or not to tell? Being a huge fan of coexistence he must itch to put a rope on Kaname's neck, and he had always been dutiful towards it. But as he is also guilty of killing Touma, would he also tell this to her as well in turn admitting he was too excited, or will he include this deed in Kaname's roster of crimes to save himself? "Kaname killed Touma in front of me. Yuki, he is really killing all purebloods!
I am really curious to see if the HA make a public turn againts
him and do not obey his orders how is Kaien going to behave and how is
he going to act?
he is alone in his beliefs and he is avid to fight for it.
Kaien has to be aware that he is a figurehead and the decisions still lie on Yagari. Fact is when he moved out on his own without sending someone with him--I dont think he was expecting to be accompanied by a fellow hunter there.
I want to see which side he chooses here especially after having a hand in killing Touma--either way he has to admit he is wrong at some point and either pass the blame to someone else or switch sides. The strength of his convictions towards peace will be known-- to continue believing in it despite both hunters threatening to move against him and be blind to its futility (especially when its as you said, he cannot protect all purebloods :Rofl:) , or to submit to another conviction that he had realized from killing Touma and Kaname's message to Yuki (although this is just me being hopeful :rofl)
The first hunters were actually killing purebloods who were declared
enemies of the people, now the role of the hunters has been degraded in
killing level-e. Of course there is the excuse that no pureblood was a
potential threat but is that true?
well I think now the hunters don't remember their history lessons, it seems they forgot they got their powers from a pureblood, and now they wish to kill all purebloods for the sake of making their lives easier
but in reality it remained the same here, they are generalizing to say that all purebloods are evil as Kaito said (and only Yuki is kind) -- they cant differentiate bad and good vampires (why they didnt include Isaya?), unlike their past ancestors. But it seems in terms of goals Kaname and the hunters share the same goal now back in the past and in the present.
Rido established a collaboration, Shizuka had gone missing...and
when Yagari again had information about Shizuka being alive, apparently
he left that to Zero due to Zero's e-level problem...
finally they have the excuse to go after a pureblood, they let him be
because he kills the rests? but they want to leave Yuuki alive because
actually she can serve as their medium or front cover that the
organization is well serving the humans, "Look at the exceptional
pureblood that we keep under control and collaborates with the
haha I don't know anymore what they want more: to protect humans or to protect their interests?
So they will approve of killing purebloods and will "allow" Yuki to live as she is not harmful to mankind but what does that say about their ability to fight against purebloods in the first place? nothing, they did nothing in the past towards evil purebloods (shizuka, rido) as we have seen they simply watched them create chaos yet Yagari seemed to get mad at Kaname killing nobles. So they will protect the rights of the nobles to live (Aido, the council) but not purebloods "you can harm and even kill the purebloods except humans and lower vampires "
"we will turn a blind eye and a crippled hand whenever a pureblood creates chaos, but we wont forgive if a pureblood (Kaname) gives us more job to handle"
are the hunters really that useless against purebloods or they just want to stick to the dignity of their titles? or something else?
im still hoping its something else we've yet to see.
Examining the moral issue of the side, the association has become
quite distant from the initial scope that the hunters were created
from...and it reminds me the senate in a way.
the actions look very senate to me right now. I hope it will make sense soon.
Perhaps that's one of the main reasons that they do not want Kaien
to know now more about their intentions...they are buying time so they
can finally pull together their actions. If they are scheming something
there, the whole point becomes more interesting LOL. Aido is taking the
tablets to the HA, perhaps we see more than expected.
good idea, yes it may be so (I hope!) makes sense if they are buying time to capture Sara XDD our previous theories about the Takuma , Jinmu and everyone else lol...
the evidences are gathering and I hope they will do something
