I like Nabonidus, as a Big Bad. He appreciates manipulation, mind games, and finesse. My personal theories for the Dark Dreamkeeper trio we mainly see involve him approaching them at a young age, and conditioning them to depend on him for some reason - a feeling of being indebted for something (Tinsel?), or a feeling of being valuable (Ravat?), or a feeling of needing/loving him (Wisp. Poor girl). And then, he polices them not with force, no, not primarily. He keeps them in line by undermining their psychological weaknesses, or by pulling the stick-and-carrot routine in combination with that. Note that he probably rescued Wisp from suicide (because I genuinely think that's where that would have ended up otherwise) not out of any affection for her, but out of necessity. Her abilities are very rare, and it looks like he put a lot of work into her, for how obsessed she is with doing right by him. All she wants is a hug, and Nabonidus has no arms.

(For my specific Tinsel and Ravat theories, see my latest posts in their respective threads! Wisp is a little self-evident.)

Nabonidus does have arms actually. Dave showed a pic of him holding a lantern. Look:

Well sh*t.

And the award for Comically Missing the Point goes to...

...But seriously. Do you think my statement on how Nabonidus polices the Dark Dreamkeepers holds water?

@CalicoYorki - I would say that they are, at very least, plausible.

@MobileCrusader - Who doesn't? :D

It sounds like Void is pretty pissed Nabby is currently in charge

I salute you. Here's a cookie. *gives cookie*

@Kirito

Yeah, speaking of "being commander and chief" of an armada of nightmares, why does Void hate Nabonidus in the first place? Is it because of Nabonidus having different plans for the attack on the DK world from that of Void that pisses him off so much that he wants to erase Nabonidus from existence, or what?

From Voids dialogue he made it sound like Nabby was an idiot.

That may very well be the case. Nabonidus wants to enslave; Void wants to exterminate. Two plans that are opposing each other.

Doesn't seem like Void can do much about it, though. He and Nabonidus are of equal power and the Nab has a plan to be rid of him; perhaps permanently.

Plenty of reasons for Void to want the Nab dead. Leadership, plan of conquest, jealousy over his power....

Well, clearly we know that Nabonidus seems like a highly intelligent being that has something so sinister and complicated that it even makes us fans have a mind-f**k, so I see that Void's statements on Nabonidus are considered INVALID! :D

Also, can you bring up the page where Void says something like that? I have a feeling that the Scuttler said that. I might be wrong.
