Durbe is dressed so dapper but at the same time he looks like a college student who just threw on the clothes they picked out last night in three minutes like even when he DIDNT just collide with a fucking clockwork airship on the dimensional highway. He doesn’t even try to smooth out his shirt it’s so fucking wrinkled. The heck.
for all durbe’s outward appearance of refinement he’s surprisingly callous
i mean okay yeah he’s got a holy lightning deck and he used to be a knight and we’ve already gone over his goddamn clothes and he does have some sense of honor as expressed with his duel with ryoga and he seems more focused on keeping the team together and worries about their unity if his lightness with dealing with fucking vector is an issue so yeah he seems like a bit of a pansy pushover
and then he easily goes along with vector’s plan despite it clearly being dishonorable and a trap and when vector reveals his guise as rei he only calls it “makeshift,” as in something synonymous with a temporary or unstable method, not anything more akin to disgusting or heinous or dishonorable so he apparently sees nothing wrong with the morals of it or at least doesn’t acknowledge it?? ??? ?? ?
he has no problem with encouraging ryoga to sever ties with yuuma and the others, no matter what emotional significance those bonds had to ryoga and whatever kind of ‘betrayal’ may be hinted in it
and then there’s him referring to droite as kisama, wow rood very rood.
basically durbe’s got a surprisingly vicious streak to him despite any appearance of nobility and i actually like it wow
