Of course he can not, pretty certain he is only interested in "proving" he is right and not actually accepting or working around any flaws or inconsistencies in his reasoning. That is not actually proof, especially if you consider that Van has matured and developed massively since then. Also the reason Van would have to do so THEN is because of Heinz's reputation (A Rank near-hero) vs Van's (Outcast Vida Race in a pro-Alda dutchy), that is not as big an issue now, and is moving more and more in to Van's favor. Yes, it is a large part of what he used to become a poster boy for the peaceful faction. There are ways to profit from something other then monetarily, that and the rep gains help get higher paying quests/gigs. No, but bad humor is not appreciated. Also, if you are going to start quoting definitions, quote the right F-ing word, no one claimed Heinz was being a profiteer, the definition that matters , is necessary to hold a competent argument, and you omitted because it shows this argument has exactly 0 merit, is Profit. The definition you quoted even links to profit, because it is an important and necessary word to understand the definition you quoted. For profit this definition "a valuable return" is the key part. Note that this is not limited to strictly money, trading favors is something that does easily quality, is coming in politics and done enough would even count as profiteering. Except he is not use the word, you are the only one who has it used outside of quotes, did you even re-read posts to make sure you did not misread them before going off on a side rant. He is not technically your evil stereotype, but he is very self serving, does more damage then good, and looks for justifications for his actions, though he accepts very thin ones. Heinz is like your racist Grandma, bigoted as hell and does do harm, but not evil to her core. He just does not realize, and possibly refuses to accept, that Alda is the insane god (and he is) not Vida. He is human, and suffer from the flaws and minor evils that most of humanity does, just he is good with a sword so that gives him more opportunities to show and fall prey to his flaws. I think he was qualified for A, but not sure about S, well at least not before Alda's buff him up plan. Mentally though definitely not qualified for S.
