LOL, I just had a revelation about the peerage problem I've been having with the whole Issei taking Xen and Asia
away with him as he makes his own peerage.
It was actually touched upon before earlier during the series... I forgot/overlooked it.
Now, depending on whether Rias is going to retire from rating battles in the future
(her college years?)
Her peerage, under her command we be forced to become inactive in any battle games.
By then, Issei will no doubt be looking for his own peerage. But depending on how much time is needed to go out
and seek for them (aka making new characters/old characters being reintroduced/plot and character development/etc)
But Issei does have an advantage. Since he is under the Gremory clan's crest/title. And "Technically engaged"
He can use Rias's pieces with her consent, freely in the games.
So when he is still looking for pieces, he uses Ria's for the time being. And when he finds his own CHOSEN peerage, he can than begin to
switch them in and out with Rias's.
Effectively Rias can become an inventory or bank of sorts for spare or unused peerage pieces, With abit of strategy
(with some help *whistles*)
Issei can switch between his and Rias's pieces before and after any rating games without any problems....
except maybe for group co-operation and teamwork
The only two problems are that Ria's pawn slots are filled from Issei having all her 8 pieces while her Queen/Bishop/Knight/Rook pieces are free to switch.
Issei's pawns cannot without Issei relinquishing his pawn pieces. Which he cannot or will not do...
And this strategy of "inventory space" only works with anyone under the Gremory clan. Meaning on the collective, they are all still Gremory servants.
So anyone outside of the Gremory clan that is traded in, Issei will have to sacrifice his piece(s) that is equivalent to the piece being traded in.
(say: 1 rook or 2 pawns can equal one rook depending, or 2 rooks for a mutation rook)
So, in that regard. It's still:
Issei's own chosen peerage.
Rias's: Xen, Asia, Akeno, Gasper, Kiba, Koneko and Ross
Trade: Ravel, Kuroka?
BASICALLY Think of it as a way for Issei to build onto the harem he already has without losing anyone....
it would be great if that happens in the future volumes. but ise said that he will take asia and xenovia when he became a high-class devil and he also promised to ravel that he wants ravel to stay as his manager forever (so it means that the ise will make ravel join his peerage ahd the phenex-mama also said that ravel is a free bishop. phenex-mama emphasized the word free if i'm not mistaken.
). it would really be a big problem if ise take xenovia and asia.
for ise's peerage (this is only on my imagination
i want le fay to join his peerage so that he can control gogmagog and ferir-chan
(position: pawn (3-4 pieces))
i also want kunou-chan to be added to
i really want ophis-chan to be added so that their team will have a mascot character that is really powerful if not applicable tiamat is the replacement
asia-chan and ravel (position: bishops)
xenovia (position: knight)
valerie tepes (position: Rook)
cao-cao (position: Rook (mutation piece))
arthur pendragon (position: knight)
