Not that I'll die hard on this opinion, but I'll reposit certain older classpecters' (From MSPA forums, and it's spiritual successor, OmegaUpdate) reasonings for seeing Knight as active. In the same post I referenced earlier (again...) It mentions how "Dave and Rose turned out to be very active players. Dave time traveling all over the place, making a fortune on stocks and such. Rose went on her crazy solo mission to break the game and fight Jack."foreverFlummoxed wrote: ↑Wed Apr 29, 2020 11:40 pmWell i think that means that your'e just adhering to the purpose of the thread, you did good.
To go a bit into detail about the Knights (since I've had time to think it through)
Dave: Utilizes time and fights to protect others, doesn't actually seem interested in taking credit/"being the hero" just wants to help
Karkat: Unites everyone and fights so that every one can win as a collective, karkat being selfish (or at least trying to be) is when he seems to be his weakest (character-wise)
Redglare: Fights for Alternian justice, secretly fights for The Sufferer's proposed peace/equality (fights for others, don't ask me how she uses Mind effectively)
Latula: One of the few we barely here any thing of besides her Radical-ness, overcoming disability(?), and the Scratch difference between culling (thanks Aranea, big help)
Later in that same reply, it says "Jade was especially passive for a lot of the story, spending a lot of time falling asleep (or being put to sleep) at key moments. It wasn’t until she reached god tier as a Witch (said to be a highly active class) that she became extremely active, making lots of stuff happen, rounding up planets and all that. Rose may have been a similar case, being excessively active as a Derse dreamer, but then flipping over to a passive role upon reaching god tier as a passive class."
It had just referred to Dave as being active and how, but offers no mention of him becoming similarly passive like Rose. People took this to mean that Dave must have been active as stated, and was acting according to his role, while Rose was not.
(It similarly mentioned the ways John was passive, and offered no mention of him changing either. That caused people to assume he was a passive class and acting in alignment with it. This has now been revealed to be true.)
