margoslxix answered your question “Another god damn Lord English post”
"Red herrings swim through his veins." I don’t know… it could be him from another timeline? Either way, I dunno if it’s "our" Caliborn.
That’s… actually a damn good idea.
Assuming that there’s more than one timeline with a Caliborn, perhaps every Caliborn from every timeline where he didn’t prematurely predominate his body became Lord English. I have no idea what this would mean in the grand scheme of things, but if this was the case, there could be a whole League of Lords (so to speak.)
Huh. I need to think about this.
I agree with you that Caliborn doesn’t seem very much like English personalitywise, but the fact I stated before still stands: properly matured cherubs all have wings, Lord English is not. I don’t believe Caliborn/Lord English will be played straight, but this theory is a counterintuitive conclusion.
I would actually disagree. While we technically don’t know much about LE’s personality, (And in fact, I’d say that we’re spending so much time with Caliborn precisely for the purpose of rectifying that) what we do know about him isn’t at all incompatible with Caliborn.
They’re both clearly awful and evil people, so there’s that. And indeed, LE displays the arrogance of Caliborn in his gaudy gold accessories and lavish mansion which, surprise surprise, is painted completely green. His general M.O. is also pretty well in line with Caliborn. Wanton murder? Check. Ridiculous grand machinations? Check. Hordes of minions doing their respective biddings? Check. Propensity to hate Andrew Hussie’s guts? Check, check, and check.
LE may be more mature than Caliborn, even if only slightly- and come on, even a stunted immature brat has to change at least a little over eons- but he still definitely fits the general personality type of the petulant little shit we all know and despise.
