Okay, so inherently I did not have a problem with Caithe. Sylvari was my first choice for character and I loved learning about them. The only race [option] that didn't exist in GW1 to have a backstory we already new. I started with the Green Knight PS. Caithe seemed cool. Not as air headed as some Sylvari could seem to be. Star Crossed with Faolain. It was cool... until A Good Work Spoiled.
That would be the part where YOU GIVE YOUR WORD that the Nightmare Courtians who show up will be let go and live if they give you the information. They give you the information and Caithe sneaks up behind them and murders them! She then goes on to convince you this is a good thing and your character has to be okay with it.
Now it isn't so much the murder. I mean story wise, etc, I understand why it was done. If it had been an option of:
-Give your word and they live
-Give your word but actually lie
-Force the information
Etc or something like that. It wouldn't have been such a problem for me. But the fact that Caithe did this, there was not option to not be okay with the fact you gave your word and Caithe destroyed it, and she was kept as a Mentor/Person to look up to, was my problem. I mean at that point I would have 'divorced' myself from Caithe. Either gotten someone else from Destiny's Edge or even the Luminary from my Cycle to take over. But Caithe, knowing she is without Honor, I am not okay with that. I will concede she may have redeemed herself with DE and her friends. Or something like that later on that was more Honorable or whatever. But the fact she did this on my Word and Honor remains.
What do you guys think?
(Yes. It is a game, etc. It didn't give me real life problems, etc. But I did switch over to Asura after that to finish the Main story line. Later on I did go back and make a Sylvari that I completed with.)
Her invention, a navigational tool she had titled "the sextant". The first who laughed at the name found himself unable to speak properly for a week. The instrument had so revolutionized navigation that the city had named a section of the docks after her: Macha's Landing.
