Unlike Saradomin, she seems to be moving in the right direction to redemption--though she still presents herself as a danger due to her inability to control herself. For now I say let her be...I'm more interested in seeing if she can redeem Zaros. Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain. An all encompassing force of evil that will remain ever-threatening and use chaos to make the peoples of Gielinor tolerate each other, grow strong together, and fight side by side against this evil. I am that villain.

Seren's actions were guided by emotion. Pure, uncontrolled, irrational emotion. She does mean well, but thinking with just emotion and not logic is just as dangerous as thinking with just logic and no emotion. She should have been honest with them, taught them to breed, and stayed with them and continued to watch over them and look for ways to help.

I'm almost postitive she could have taught them to drain Mah not just for birth, but to sustain themselves. The sacrifices were no needed. They could have simply mated and mated until Mah was nothing. Instead Seren, blinded by her emotions, chose to protect that monster. When it comes to Mah, she and Zaros are blind. Seren is blinded, seeing Mah as a loving mother and ignoring her posessiveness, cruelty, and willingness to kill her, Zaros, and all the Mahjarrat to stay alive. Zaros...he's simply blind to how much like his mother he really is.

She saw the Mahjarrat as nothing. They were her siblings and she had no love for them, despite their adoration and devotion to her. She lied to them and had them sacrifice their own lives for an abomination. Unlike Zamorak, I do think there is room for redemption and forgiveness...but what Seren did was completely wrong. There was no excuse for it. I would like to hope that Seren can one day learn the error of her ways, but she is horribly unbalanced and broken in her design. Though I don't see her as evil, she is dangerous--though, to her credit, she has become more self aware of this and does seem to be making an effort to control herself. I'm just not sure it's possible.

Seriously though...think how the Mahjarrat are feeling, especially first borns like Zamorak, Bilrach, Hazeel, etc. This was their "mother", the only one they had ever known. They loved her and killed themselves for her...only to find out she had lied to them and used her forced love to manipulate them to save their real mother who didn't love them at all and was willing to kill them for her own life.

Now onto their own hypocrisy. In one moment, Zamorak states that they loved "Mah" for having created them, and they wanted to help her, as they did with the rituals. Now, because that was Seren, it was all invalid; he completely ignores, and denies, the fact that all those rituals were made to help Mah.


It was his mother. There was a natural loyalty there and Seren's aura forced him to love her. She lied to him, acted as his mother and teacher, and being a newborn, he and the others believed the things she told him.

Imagine, for a moment, that you met your mother after a long long time. You had thought that they loved you, cared for you, and only taught you what was absolutely necesary. Then you discover this was a lie. They didn't love you. They saw you as trash. They used your emotions against you, to deceive you, had you kill your family because you were a child naive enough to believe her--this only person who ever acted as a parent in your life because you had no Father or older siblings.

And for what? To save your real mother, an evil creature that was a danger to everyone, didn't love any of her children, and was willing to kill them all for herself. Seren could have told them the truth, that their mother was a mosnter and they should keep breeding until she was nothing and that, as a big sister, she'd look after them until Mah was either too weak to create Muspah on her own, or the Mahjarrat had the numbers to counter them.
