If Orta didn’t exist or was so special there wouldn’t of been a need for Lagi to appear. Because then there wouldn’t be a time of great distress. Because Abadd wouldn’t of had the option to reproduce himself infinitely. Because Orta wouldn’t exist. (Of course, unless you want to bring ‘intent’ into the equation, in which case she has no fault through intent, but rather from existence - you could easily switch it back and say if Abadd never existed etc… but how many bad guys have you come across that depend on the existence of the body of the good guy to fulfil an evil purpose (reproduce infinitely) to make them the ‘bad guy’ in the first place? Considering he was never ‘evil’ before he had the option of using Orta. Then again he might’ve been.
What special properties Orta has that will allow Abadd to reproduce himself infinitely is anyones guess - any thoughts? We know she has the ability to pass down her genes like any human, but I doubt that’s the technicality of reproducing yourself infinitely Abadd mentions. I guess Abadd has knowledge that allows him to utilise her genes that will allow “normal” drones to replicate, but he could just take a sample of her genes and use that, instead he need her whole body. Any thoughts?
ANYWAY… if Orta hadn’t existed, Abadd would simply of continued looking for a way to ressurect his “Ancient Masters” (Episode 2 Event 1) and there was no need for a Dragon to appear in times of distress.
Very early in the game:
I have been searching for you
You… know who I am?
I have forseen you destiny.
You must save this doomed world from itself.
We then find out that he cannot ressurect his Ancient Masters, after a period of time he finds a way (I assume) to reproduce himself infinitely by using Orta somehow (which is never explained). It is at this point that you battle him (Episode 7 boss) and he becomes a ‘bad guy’ and no longer a neutral figure. Well, at least to the audience. We can assume that at the end of Episode 5 the whole point of him leading Orta to a place where she’s transported inside Sestren, so he probably figured out that the way to reproduce himself infinitely was to have Orta inside Sestren - she was created there after all ?]. This is of course -my- personal opinion.
I’m probably wrong though. If you think about it, the Empire sent out to kill Orta from the beginning ?], then we later hear Evren say “Get the Dragon, We can get the girl later”… so we know they just don’t want to kill her, or maybe just her body (dead or alive) for purposes never explained - make more dragonmares?
At Episode 8 Event 1:
Grand admiral Sir!
Th-the Cradle! Its’s been activated?!
Excellent. The time has finally come to awaken the rest of the dragonmares!
So we know that it’s a power source that is required. A power source Abadd had access to to make the original Dragonmare Squadron. Maybe Orta too has the capability to access such power? Probably not the knowledge how to - or is that going a little to far, rofl.
The Empire also knows more about Orta than she knows about herself - she finds out from them (after defeating Episode 4 Boss 1, but before fighting Evren and the Dragonmare Squadron) that she is a drone (she’s really half-human though). Maybe Abadd told them all this? Or they knew from another source.
OT - Abadd’s mission: If he was pre-programmed to ressurect his ancient masters after they had fallen, would it explain why he was still “active” (interpreted as “alive”) when the Empire found him during an excavation? Or do you think it was just a coincidence that he was still active?
