Question of the Day

What do you think?

What exactly made Gabriel and Paracelsus the way they were, and could anything have ever influenced them to change their ways?

In ihren Verhaltensweisen sind sie sich sehr ähnlich. Die Fixierung, etwas bestimmtes mit allen Mitteln erreichen zu müssen, macht zu wahnsinnig gefährlichen 'Waffen'. Bei Paracelsus ist Tod seiner Frau schuld daran, bei Gabriel liegt das Übel schon in seiner Kindheit schätze ich. Solange keiner von beiden bereit ist, seine Macht und Überlegenheit hinter sich zu lassen, solange wird nichts und niemand ihr Verhalten ändern können. ----- Both are similar in their behavior. Being fixed on something whatever the cost is, makes them dangerous 'weapons'. For Paracelsus it's the death of his wife, for Gabriel it laid in childhood I guess. As long as non of them is ready to give up their power and dominance or influence, no one and nothing will change their manners.

Paracelsus seemed to be based on the tradition of Arrogant Genius gone mad. His idea of power, or wealth or success revolved around everyone recognizing his brilliance. Gabriel was incubated in amorality. he was intelligent, but that wasn't a driving feature of his personality, just another tool to use to satisfy his psychopathic urges. His idea of power was, simply, power. He would have chewed up John Pater and spit him out in a minute.

Paracelsus got more crazy as his wife died.Perhaps she could have helped a little. Gabriel was a lost cause even as child. Its good that they never met and helped each other.

Paracelsus was warped ambition, and Gabriel was pure sociopathy so they were pretty much set in their ways.
