I approve of Edgar character development. If the Ranger is Edgar playing cool beans then suddenly his character went from being flat to something.

The Ranger would have to be a split personality for this to work sadly. Or some sort of projection. When you talk to Edgar in the court yard post Rosella coma, he has no clue what's going on. He'd be off being cool and mysterious if he was consciously being the Ranger. Not brooding.

I could see him play hero though. Perhaps it's his fey aspects? King's quest REALLY didn't expand on his power capabilities. Just that he was the dashing fey prince that Rosella fell for, and he was all Disney prince in KQ7. Not much else but random magic blah stuff.

Agreed.  Edgar being the Ranger just wouldn't make a whole lot of sense.  He doesn't seem to know what's going on, and he isn't the type to go off on his own and make stuff happen without telling Graham.  Besides, the Ranger knows exactly what's going on and seems to be someone who was around when the evil got imprisoned.  While I guess Edgar could be pretty old, seeing as how he's a fairy, I don't think he's that old.

So, I for one would call foul if the Ranger ends up being Edgar in disguise.  I would like to see more development for Edgar besides him just moping around though.  I know he's never been a man of action.  He's more a walking personification of victimhood, but still, I'd like to see him do a bit more than pine away.

I donno. There could be a simple way of explaining it but not everyone needs to be important to the storyline. I agree though. I wish he were something more than he is. Even Cassima seems to have things moving along and proactive.

I don't however think of Edgar as not proactive. He was proactive in KQ7. He was naive in KQ4 to me cause he didn't know who he was (even though I still don't like that Lolotte wasn't his mother in the end. I liked Edgar getting a reward for inner beauty rather than having an enchantment broken :/ ) I think he should have better. HE has potential to be something in the story more than he is now. I dont' think that something is the Ranger though.

You know who my best guess is?

How many of you caught the Ranger's statement to Grahm when he asks "Why are you helping me?"  Ranger replies: "Who says I am?"  Unless the programmers put in just for dramatic affect, that implies a couple of possibilities:

Oh- that's brilliant. It makes SO much more sense than the other ideas too! Cept I'm thinking original Graham. Shadrack keeps saying that he keeps fighting Graham. I thought this meant the Silver cloaks, but it makes more sense that it's him personally, and why the vendetta is against him specifically :)
