In this Corrin blames Garon for literally everything bad which the story considers to be wrong and punishes Corrin for doing so but they don't realize till the end when they almost die at the hands of dragon Garon. Like their growth in this story is examining the contradiction present inherent to them to side with Hoshido and trying to correct it which they do somewhat. As I said in my analysis Corrin does indeed contradict themselves in birthright because they keep trying to use the trust fostered between them and their siblings to sway them over to their side but it doesn't work they betrayed the very trust they trying to use. It's a contradiction plain and simple. It is only after acknowledging that contradiction and proving to their nohrian siblings that still cherish the trust they once had then they succeed. That's the growth and journey they go through. The only reason they are unable to fully correct is because they still blame Garon for everything when he's not the one to blame at all. That's the point of the narrative. That's the focus of the story. CQ!Corrin is weird in that they do indeed grow throughout the story but the focus more so is how Corrin effects the world around her which is more reminiscent of a flat arc protagonist. It's an interesting arc you could say. need I remind you that Corrin can be mute in the japanese version of the games so there's that. Bold: Can they? Where is the option, because I can't find it. The rest: would you mind quoting dialogue to support this? I don't remember anything more happening in that final scene than Xander giving Corrin a pep talk about not giving up. Also, Corrin manages to persuade both Leo and Elise to their point of view pretty easily (well, Leo needs the stuffing beaten out of him first), long before their near-death experience.
