The Ranger Analysis thread
« on: February 21, 2011, 03:51:47 PM »
One thing that makes my head race in the game- SPECIALLY now that the plot is thickening further and further, is who the heck this Ranger guy is.

To make an educated guess on this, I'd have to say he's either:-

So yeah- thought's on the guy? Anyone seen any art posted of him on the internet? I've seen a few and that's it





And I did some fanart of him too just cause

Actually, he's totally a gender confused female. But we were trying to downplay that on the team XD :rofl:

In all seriousness, I can't tell you who this guy is, other than the fact that he actually turns into a power ranger later on. No, I'm serious. Seriously. Would I ever lie to you guys?

Nice fan-art btw! You're very talented, Arkillian!

I didn't expect you to hon :) I'm wondering if others are wondering who he is too :)

And thank you DD :) It was meant to be a quick sketch but I screwed up the colours so much that I had to double my efforts to not waste the line art XD

I'd say Aragorn but he's a range of the North rather then a silver cloak. :P

Wrong Faction.

Wrong story too... Although I wouldn't disapprove if it were true :)

I'm a beta tester on the team and I don't even know who this guy really is.... so don't feel so bad if you think i'm ahead of the curve on that one.  As for who he is, I think someone mentioned that he made an appearance in King's Quest VII though I didn't notice that, I'd have to play the game again to see if I spot him.  That's all the information I know at this point so we can only speculate until we either get Episode 4 or 5.  I'm not sure if he is revealed in 4 or in 5.

The only character in KQVII that looks remotely like him is Edgar, and I highly doubt it's him.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Oh- don't get me wrong! This thread is about speculation! I don't want people to tell me who he is! That'd spoil the game for me :)  I want to know people's guesses and theories on him :)

The only ranger that was in King's Quest 7 was a ghost in the desert whose spirit was set free by Valanice giving him water. He was rather lanky tho, so I don't think he quite fits the build. I think he's Shadrack's equal opposite on the Silver Cloak side, perhaps a spirit of one of those who sealed him away in that stone.

This is also very true. Perhaps someone is channelling the previous Silver Cloaks.

It intrigues me though that he wears his scarf like Alexander does though... that's kinda what makes me think it's a project of him and what he's learnt about the Black and Silver cloaks through his research...

There is ONE person that hasn't been mentioned. He's in KQVIII and kind of important. They DID say early on that this character plays a role in the game!

I haven't played Mask of eternity. I'm not into that kind of game. Who is the character?

Seriously. Would I ever lie to you guys?
Yes... ::)

I have no idea who he is, either. He seems to have some sort of connection to the Silver Cloaks, but other than that, he's pretty much a complete mystery. Maybe he's just a figment of Graham's imagination...

Ya, who is that Ranger guy...

Maybe is part of Alexander? He could be a hallucination of Alexander that left his body. He could be a different part of his personality.

Does this make sense?

I think it's got to be someone we know. Why cover his face if he's a stranger to us anyway? I wish I had played KQ8 now but that's the only one I haven't played. It should be someone who's displayed magic to us before?

One thought comes to mind:

This is what I thought. That, and he has the scarf that Alexander wears- different colour, but there's a similar fashion sense. I wonder if he's projecting just like Shadrack does. He apparently knew a lot of dark arts.

Doubt if it's Edgar. Edgar doesn't have a clue what's going on, and he's been at the castle the whole time. Hope it's not Manannan cause frankly, he doesn't deserve a full redemption. Perhaps eventual sympathy, but not redemption. If he wants that, he should do it out in the open.

When I first saw the ranger, I was convinced it was the desert spirit from KQ7.

Oh- please no T.T That spirit made my brain dehydrate. HE was awefull. If Phoenix decides it's him then I reject the notion in my head canon. The Ranger has a TRUCK tone more personality than Mr Emo ever would.
