Hi there! I'm just a little confused on the Hope aspect as a whole, honestly. But more specifically, a Star of Hope! What do you think they would do? I mean this is the first time I've taken the Page of Hope's God Tier title test and gotten something that wasn't either Sylph, Queen, or Maid of Space, and for my group's OC session, I'm not sure which of these I really want to go with, so I'm trying to know whatever I can about a Star. Thank you, and yeah I know, I babble c:
I’ll elaborate a bit on the Hope aspect for you, no worries!
Hope is all about belief in things. Believe that your team will come out of their trials successful, belief that you will one day rule the world, belief that all members of a particularly denomination need to die in an incredibly painful manner, and so on! It’s a very contextual aspect that frequently molds itself to its wielder!
It’s been proven throughout the course of the comic (see: Jake, Eridan) that Hope is a very, VERY powerful aspect. Hope players are oftentimes quite optimistic and tend to be a bit on the stubborn side, frequently having some kind of belief system that they rigorously adhere to.
Most of the Hope players we’ve seen have had massive effects (for better or worse) on their teammates: Eridan murdered two people and nearly murdered another one and also promptly blew up the Matriorb, Jake ended up prompting a Hope-pocalypse, and Cronus…well, we can’t be too sure about Cronus, since details on the Pre-Scratch session are spotty.
Hope as an aspect sort of seems similar to the Bard as a class, in the sense that they have the potential to swing the team’s favor in either one direction or the other. Furthermore, angels seem to be a recurring theme among Hope players!
Now then, the Star of Hope would be one who draws attention to themselves through their beliefs. A preacher-type character comes to mind, someone who is always talking about the things that they feel and believe. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because sometimes a team needs an axis of optimism to keep them going through the trials of SBURB! But be careful; if the Star comes off as too incessant about it, they might attract the ire of those who might not feel the same way!
