Without time travel, Grima had secured his victory. Is it really any reason why he SHOULDN'T be arrogant when everything fell into place? His only downfall have in fact been things that he couldn't possibly foresee. Grima indicated that if they changed the past, he would cease to exist, but that's not actually the case. Grima never knew about the multiverse theory. Grima never figured that Robin would piece the memories that Grima unintentionally gave him to his advantage, which allows him to trick Validar in the end. He never expected that Robin could resist him to the point that he could break out of his control. And he certainly couldn't have expected that Robin would try to kill him. This also goes with Grima's Future Past counterpart. That Grima won as well, except: Naga sent in reinforcements from other worlds. How was he supposed to know that defiling Mount Prism and killing Tiki would somehow make Ylisstol be the new place to perform the Awakening? So despite his arrogance, Grima played the long game, and after his first defeat at the hands of the Exalt, he had already left his mark on the world, and had a cult to try and revive him, and everything ultimately resulted in him winning.

Reveal hidden contents Though I think Grima was naturally arrogant as well. Grima was created to be perfect and probably believed it. These are actually the reasons why I like Grima as a villain so much. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
