I wouldn't think of Diana as evil, just extremely vengeful. That's definitely not a GOOD trait to have at all, but it doesn't make her evil.

Diana isn't evil. If anything, the Rakkor are violent and the Solari are corrupt.
This is my favorite post in the thread.

I can't wait until this Solari/Rakkor storyline is touched upon and Diana and Leona eventually confront each other; you just know Diana will go bonkers trying to kill Leona, but I imagine Leona wouldn't want to kill Diana. What'll happen if the Solari higher-ups find out their symbolic warrior doesn't want to get rid of their "Lunar Executor"?

I'd say there is a lot of grey there. I don't blame her for killing those she did, those were her assailants. Willing to see her dead over religious oppression. When did we say defending yourself is evil? That's only the most pacifistic moral ethics.

Now also think about it, when this is over, she's slain high leaders of her society. She can't go home, her place in her people is over. She has no choice but exile. So like it says, she's jaded, bitter, homeless. Well, duh. How many of you can really say losing contacts with your home, family, and friends after being assaulted by the people you trusted would leave you all spiffylicious? Whatever, lies if you say you'll be all kosher.

She might go evil, murderous, but they don't really say that either. It's an open path, it could be used for events. She is at least a hard liner versus those who would deny her chosen path. The one that was her right to take. How far she goes with that, is what will make her evil, good, or as many champions actually are, a solid grey that sentient creatures often are.

I wish someone would do some art of Leona shielding through a barrage of Diana's lunar attacks.

I think it depends how far is willing to go. If Leona accepted that the moon is powerful but still followed the sun then we could determine if Diana is truly evil. If she attacks Leona then she is evil but if she leaves Leona alone then she would be a freedom fighter. It all comes down to how we interpet the lore. Does all who deny the moon mean try to suppress her and the moon, in which case she is fighting for her rights. But if all who deny the moon mean those who don't follow the moon then she is evil, just like Kayle and now I started all whole new argument.

One can be both a victim and a villain... every heard the term "sympathy for the Devil" or "two wrongs don''t make a right"???

Neither Diana nor Leona are evil - THE PARROT IS THE EVIL ONE!
Get used to it, he tends to do that a lot.

Don't worry, they are not... they maybe trying to and they may even think they are, but their ignorance on the subject shines through. Their snide comments are not related to anything outside their own imaginations...

I would love it if Leona and Diana still got along somehow, while maintaining their separate beliefs as well.

I doubt they ever got along in their lives.

Assuming they are the same age, Leona lived with the Rakkor while Diana lived with the Solari. When Leona came of age (What age is it... 16 or something?) to take part in the fight to the death against another teen, Diana must have still been living with the Solari.

So, after Leona nearly died it must have been the Solari elders (who were still alive at the time) who ordered Leona should be brought to them and released from the Rakkor.

Diana never felt any connection to the sun, and as such wouldn't want to get along with Leona, nor would she have a chance since Leona joined the league shortly after becomnig the avatar of the sun.

Later, never losing faith in the moon Diana found the relics that resulted in her exile and ascension into the avatar of the moon. Then she joined the league too.

There was never any time for them to get to know eachother, and they're far too different to like each other.

Diana and Leona have stuff in common that they could talk about. Both almost executed, both make terrible puns all the time, and they both inflict massive amounts of radiation on others. They could be bff if they sat and talked. Yin and yang go together sometimes.
