Since Volcanon will seemingly abandon Bowie during his war against the devils, then why does he give Ian his full support? Why would he take 2 drastically different approaches to a similar situation?

I would assume that because Ian and the other mortals weren't the cause of the evil threatening the world, he gave his support.

The mortals (specifically Slade) of Bowie's generation, on the other hand, inadvertently unsealed an ancient evil and all but guaranteed the world's destruction, outside of the gods' respective homes. They got themselves into their mess, they have to get themselves out.

Besides, Volcanon only used that as a pretext.

Not really, that's still the reason he put forward to "not help" Bowie. Though really, other than the ending I can't think of any other time he actively nudged things in the force's favor. I guess that means he did a whole bunch of watching over just like in FC.

Like, you survive the nazca ship crash? Gotta thank Volcanon for that!

Edit: Oh right, the jewel of light guides you to the force sword. That's probably it.

When I referred to Bowie's situation, I used the term "seemingly" to indicate that it was just a convincing cover story to deceive the Devil Army.

If he had joined you at that time, Zeon would've come to Parmecia. The entire continent might have been destroyed.


Wouldn't Zeon have done that either way? He was still reviving right up to the end of the game, so that wasn't an immediate threat.

And if Volcanon had joined you, you would've leaned on him, wouldn't you have?


If that were the case, then wouldn't that same reasoning apply to Ian?

I guess what Mitula means is that Zeon would have sent his minions all over Parmecia much sooner... Instead a greater devil went straight for Bedoe and then some time passed (long enough for Bowie to grow up/promote) before North Parmecia was almost completely taken over. Slower invasion.

Though it's more likely that whoever wrote that line didn't take those details into account while looking for consistency. The same goes for Volcanon's attitude across the games. SF isn't always written very well and FC is mainly an attempt to link some games together on the fly.

Games that, prior to FC, were connected only by a town of people who reference Max once, and a conflict between Darksol and Zeon that happened long before the game's events. Both of which being dialogues you don't even have to experience to clear SF2.
