I don't really understand some of the story points around him.
Balthazar wants to kill the dragons and safe the world from them, but that's actually what will destroy them, because of magical imbalance. The human gods don't seem to care at all about the world they invested hundreds of years in, except balthazar. Kormirs argument seems hollow. If they would stop Balthazar from killing the dragons it could create another crystal desert or worse, so they just will let it happen which will destroy the world for sure. Kormir is basically telling us that they would prefer a destroyed world than a world that gets a little bit damaged in a fight.
So if Balthazar's goal is to kill the dragons why is he attacking civilian settlements? I can understand the fights between his forged and the awakened, because they probably hindered him at executing his plan, but what does he gain from attacking innocent humans? He is their god, couldn't he just go to them and ask for their support? He could even recruit the sunspears because he has to fight awakened anyway and imprisoned joko. Why isn't he portrait as the savior that imprisoned joko and liberates elona from him?
As a god why doesn't he know that killing dragons destroys the world? He must has been around for a long time and while the forgotten, glint, the asura etc. figured that out the gods didn't? Or did he have a plan to protect Tyria from the magic that gets released from a dead dragon?
