...I find it somewhat odd that the sisters didn't seem to find Pandora before then.
Sure there would be some need for discretion but she's the white witch after all, I would imagine they would want to track her down asap to make sure their powerbase doesn't collapse.
*pats pats the tiny Kane on the head* You did the right thing in hindsight dear little heir, without you who knows what would've happened to your mother.
0-0 I'm honestly confused by Circe here. She's pretty much abandoning the very person who would become either the white witch or the pirate king some day. I don't see it as selfish as much as being extremely poor judgement (mind it is likely she might not have known about his singing).
... however this does answer some long standing questions plot wise. :3
@Wolfy: I honestly don't think the sister are looking or had any interested to find the white witch or even to get back together before the war ends. There is a reason why they split up.
They are all hiding and living a secret life waiting for things to pass.
They probably even know where each and everyone of them is hidden and wouldn't go look for the others for fear of being ALL caught once together. Although if I were once of them I would not want to know for fear of giving them away under torture.
However Benie is not one of the sisters yet, she is a kid and she would want to see her mother, she is having a kid reaction.
Also I don't think Circe is "abandoning" Kane, although her heart turned unfeeling and hateful, this is her way to keep him safe: away from dangerous people, back in Badia, where his dad could find him - if he is indeed alive - which we know he is but of course, at this point, the other characters don't.
My only confusion here right now is, it seems like Circe is very certain that Kane's father is alive and kicking in Badia whereas Pandora totally has no idea on his status and only seems to get her info from his oldest son. This strikes me as a bit abandon-ish. And how'd Villy explain Pandora's "death" to his dad anyway....? O_o
I think: "he will find you there" means everything and nothing. It's NOT "you will find him there". At this moment Circe has the one thing Pandora did not have: a calm mind, not ridden by pain, panic and years of despair.
So it's not that she knows he is alive and well, she knows Badia is his home - if he goes home he will find his kid. Of course we know that didn't happen.
