Since we're essentially arguing over the "sins of the father", let's use a real world example. Would you say the children of Nazis deserved to die simply because their parents participated in racist war crimes against the Jews? If your answer is no, then by the same token you cannot say that all Marleyans' lives (especially children) are worth less than Eldian lives. You're essentially buying into the Yeagerist propaganda if you say that.

In fact, I'd go a step further and say that no life is worth more or less than another. We're all equals. However, our actions dictate how others view us and whether we bring consequences upon ourselves.

So, Gabi's life is not worth less than Falco's. She did some terrible things (albeit in a time of war where both sides were guilty of killing), but that does not make her irredeemable or make her life worth nothing.

1. Only if their children did not follow in their Nazi parents' footsteps. If they themselves were Nazis, then yes the children would deserve to die as well.

2. Gabi's life is SO beneath Falco's. Falco realized early on that the people of Paradis are not devils and barely harmed them in any way. Gabi did too much damage to ever be forgiven.

1. If you notice I was very particular with my question. "Would you say the children of Nazis deserved to die simply because their parents participated in racist war crimes against the Jews?" So thank you for agreeing that they would not deserve to die for simply being the children of criminals.

2. Falco was not nearly as gung-ho and brainwashed for the cause of Marleyan supremacy through the warrior system as Gabi was. She also killed an enemy combatant (Sasha) in a time of war. Boo hoo. Real lives are taken all the time in war and I don't see you fussing over them. I get that you have an emotional attachment to Sasha (we all do), but it's time to let her rest. I don't think even she would resent Gabi.
