One more small detail that hurts a lot
Tumblr media
The palismans shared their desires with the witches they bonded with. The bird that Hunter ends up with was desperately trying to escape the little place it was caged in. It bonded with him because they both wanna escape and be free. Its the most subtle way to say he is desperate to be out of that castle.

Belos DEFINITELY takes advantage of his mask to gaslight Hunter... Only saving his physical abuse, his ‘nasty side’ for when he’s wearing the mask, only scarring Hunter when he’s transformed by the curse. So that when Belos DOES remove the mask and present himself as a kindly old man, Hunter is conditioned to see this visage as his elderly uncle who loves and cares for him!
There’s a reason for the dissonance the viewer feels between masked Belos, and unmasked Belos... And he definitely weaponize that against Hunter- With the ‘Emperor’ practically being a completely different person... Which causes Hunter to dissociate Belos from the abuse he inflicts, and makes it easier for the kid to excuse his uncle, because that’s not really him...
That’s just the evil masked monster- Hunter is conditioned to feel safe and relieved when the mask is off, and conversely be terrified and subservient when Belos’ face is exposed. It’s like an on/off switch that Belos can flip at any moment, and allows him to be downright contradictory in his actions;
Tumblr media
Because Hunter practically sees the abuser and his uncle as two different people, and the mask just cements these separate images in his head, each exclusive to a person- There is no crossover between the two, and I imagine Belos takes great care to keep these ‘personas’ separate from one another, so it’s even harder for Hunter to make that connection between them as one and the same.

"Hunter isn't trying hard enough to be redeemed"
"He betrayed Amity 2 times"
"Hunter still needs help but not from Amity".
Hmm...I DISAGREE!!
So about Hunter "Not trying hard enough", he actually did try,2 times to be exact, and guess what happened those 2 times...
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
And not only that but the fact that he opened up to Luz in "Hunting Palismen"
Only for her to share his identity to the world! And not only that, she called him a "bad but sad boi" and now Eda's teasing him! (Not saying that Luz revealed ALL of his identity but that's still something) (Not to mention he's a coven head so if someone knew they'll-)(What happens if rumors got out of Hunter using wild magic? Belos don’t kill hi-)
Imagine trusting someone, and then realizing they wanna be your friend, and you now have a friend! And then that friend goes out to share ALL YOUR SECRETS TO ALL OF HER 10 CLOSEST FRIENDS! (That was not what Luz was trying to do (in fact she didn't even tell them his name, they just somehow found out by the description) but that's likely to be what Hunter was thinking) Won't you, have some trust issues after that?
Tumblr media
I've already explained the manipulation scene, but I'll say it here anyway.
"Come back with results or else...you can figure out the rest" -Hunter (Eclipse lake)
"Come back with results or else...we're done" -Amity (Eclipse lake)
That red arrow CLEARLY means turn back
Those 2 charts mean results cuz you put results on a chart
And the bat and the sad cat means Luz (aka, the bat) leaving Amity (aka, the cat)
And who would think of just spinning it around right? Hunter doesn't know "Human culture". He was most likely projecting himself onto Amity without knowing it.
Tumblr media
And finally...
Why didn't he accept Amity's offer?
First thing, he did accept it (or want to) but then he saw the key, and ooohohoho, all those thoughts just went straight away. Why?
Option A (for Amity), is just a chance game (This is Hunter's perspective btw) he could choose it just for the CHANCE of maybe finding someone that would actually care for him. Since Amity said, quote:
"But there are people out there that won't make you feel worthless, you just...have to let yourself met them."
(So Hunter needs to wait until he can find someone like that?)
Or...
Tumblr media
Option B (for Belos), get the key, there's a 100% chance he will be happy. Belos cares for him. And if he just gives Belos the key then and there, there won't be any waiting needed! Belos is right there and he loves him!
And option A (Amity) has some flaws too, The Owl Lady absolutely hates him, and (as shown in the earlier scenes) ignores him even when he tried to help her! Luz hates him now for trying to steal the Paslismen, and she just called him a "Bad but sad boy". They even teased him about his lack of magic! And he only met them for like an hour. Plus, all the good interactions with them are only like- three minutes or at MOST 15 minutes (cuz of interruptions like Kikimora and the key).
Tumblr media
Meanwhile...
Belos on the other hand loves him! He's important to Belos, and unlike the others, Belos would never say anything about him being "Powerless". Even though he IS still hungry for eye drops and Hunter does have some...But Belos adopted him, and he's been living his whole life with Belos. Why would he chose The owl gang after Belos has cared him for all his life and they- just insult him and say some words of encouragement? And he doesn't even know why Belos is dangerous (and is planning to harvest his teeth to the Titian! (joke)).
And it is hard (saying from personal experience), Very hard, to cut off an abusive person- it's just not that that easy as, POW, done. And even more so in Hunter's case since he's a "Powerless witch" and could never survive on his own/without a home. (Have you seen how DANGEROUS this place is? The fairies can eat your skin! Hunter "no magik boi" won't stand a chance!).
(And all of these thoughts are going through him in the span of 2 seconds!)
Tumblr media
And he also acted out of instinct, (aka Golden guard side) and he wasn't thinking properly since he just had a mental breakdown and was using the things that he's known before (aka teleportation, the hand...not to mention he was using a different staff but was so desperate he somehow knew how to use it-), I mean seriously- Hunter you could have just levitated it away!
Tumblr media
(And he's very tired after killing all those people!
I mean jeez Hunter! How? Those Abomatons took Amity so long to weaken!)
(Hehe- Hunter not weak at all! He even fought Amity after doing all of that! ))
Tumblr media
Conclusion:
Someone needs to give him some good interactions (for a few hours at least) and teach him about how bad Belos is. And Eda needs to stop bullying Hunter, because (According to Newton's law) you can only push at something as much as it can resist your push, so in the end, you'll have this barely supported Hunter that just moves out of the way when the actually good interactions come. (And most of the owl crew probably doesn't even know that Belos is manipulating Hunter and thinks that Hunter is the guy that's being bad)
Also this:
Tumblr media
So if these kinds of bad interactions continue, Hunter may never be redeemed...(Unless if Rascal comes in but...there's Belos(Honestly that bird is the only thing that's keeping him happy and is the only good relationship he ever had!))(Not to mention, Belos is also the only other good relationship he had) because if he thinks that "friends" are only meant to hurt him and make him sad...he won't want any friends. And if these continue, we'll lose Hunter, and all we'll have left is a brainwashed and Belosy Golden guard...
And I'm scared that that's what gonna happen since most of the owl crew probably doesn't even know that Belos is manipulating Hunter and thinks that Hunter is the guy that's being bad...and Hunter's gonna think that they're bad ones, until it's too late...
Can I get a round of reblogs? Cuz I spent like, 3 days on this...

(At the Emperor's Castle)
Luz: Why do I hear boss music?
Belos: That sound? It's just my Golden Guard playing his favorite tune.
Kikimora: (trying to not lose it) Don't you mean the ONLY tune he knows and plays on repeat at 3:00 AM, your highness?

Working with the assumption that even horrible people can have occasional moments of decency, I'd like to see Belos be a good parent for once. I don't mean an AU where he's a good person, I mean the Belos we know and hate had some rare glimpses of kindness amidst the abuse. Maybe he gave Hunter the pink frog plush. Or maybe one time Hunter fell asleep after training and Belos carried him to bed and tucked him in. Maybe the moment he gave Hunter the staff and taught him a spell.
Tumblr media
You know what... I 100% agree with you! And I want to say, I like this character for that!
SO YES I LIKE BELOS! I think he's a good main vilain because he's not only mean. We can understand why ppl on boiling island want him as a leader! And why Hunter, Lilith and Kiki respect him and are manipulated. But I don't excuse his action of course U_U
bifivbieuhg... I admit Belos carried Hunter to bed because he fell asleep everywere ramdomly is a beautifull idea... I need to draw this one day ;w;

Would like to add that he flinches away to the left here. It still cuts part of his hair. Belos was going straight for his face and the fact he flinched away is the only reason he didn't get another injury. Every single scar on his body is from Belos freaking out on him when he's upset or when he fails.

Tumblr media
Having a character who's canonically suffering from an abusive family is not only
A) such an interesting plot point
B) REALLY RELATABLE FOR PEOPLE WHO WATCH THIS SHOW AND HAVE BEEN THROUGH THAT
and i think the way that they're dealing with him is so wonderful. No wonder he's Dana's favourite character, he's so interesting.
Not to mention he's studying wild magic and he now has access to a staff chock full of the stuff. He legitimately has the potential to be one of the strongest witches in the show because of that staff, and he's already intimidating enough with his old staff.

Yeah um-
It’s basically canon that Belos is a physical abuser who scarred Hunter, we see that he DID harm a hair on his head, quite a few!
Tumblr media
But also, who wants to bet that Belos gaslights Hunter too??? He’ll blame his physical abuse on the ‘curse’ that’s turning him into a monster against his own will... So Hunter justifies it because it’s not REALLY his uncle doing this, it’s the monster!
Tumblr media
Who knows? Maybe Belos himself is also deluded that way. Maybe Belos is convinced it’s just the curse making him lash out, and he can’t tell where his anger ends and begins, and vice-versa with the curse? It’s like some dissociation or out-of-body experience...
Belos thinks he’s always been the same, any changes are just the monster within! He separates his real flaws as an entirely different entity, and Hunter sticks with Belos, because he wants to ‘restore’ his uncle back to his old self... And honestly, Belos may have always been like this.
Tumblr media
Plus, if Belos’ curse is aggravated by stress... I wouldn’t put it past him to blame Hunter for any outbursts, because Hunter ‘knowingly’ aggravated Belos and thus provoked the curse, allowing it to lash out!
So it’s Hunter’s fault for making Belos upset and disappointed, it’s Hunter’s performance that decides if ‘the curse’ worsens or not! It’s Hunter who’s inciting Belos’ trauma by bringing up wild magic...
Which, amidst the nuanced exploration of disabilities, it’d be interesting to see an abuser who blames their toxic behavior on their condition, and refuses to be responsible about it because it’s their excuse, when that only works as an explanation at best.
Talk about dark parallels... Luz has Eda as her Wine Aunt, Hunter has Belos as his Evil Uncle. Both kids are clearly ND and hyperfixate on magic, they can’t do magic ‘normally’ and don’t fit in... And they have an older parental figure suffering a curse (of feathers and mud?) and earnestly want to learn more to help them...
They’re both trusted by Eda and Belos to help them handle this condition... But Eda would never use the curse as an excuse for any wrongful actions on her part, she owns who she is and embraces it as the Owl Lady! While Belos hides beneath a mask, the true monster he’s turned into... And he pretends that he and the curse are different entities.

Every monster blends in with the darkness,
Only for its true form to be revealed by the light
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Every Emperor hides behind their mask,
Only to hide their true nature and goals from others.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Every king/creature has a tragic past,
Which is shared to the only person they care most in the world.
