Hey, sorry if there is already a tread like this one but I have a theory I would like to hear your opinions about.
So far in the manga the Tenryubitos only purpose seems to be to act as hatable jerks but it got me thinking. Why does the world government allow a group of people to do as they please simply because of their ancestry? We all know that the WG is corrupt, but they arent stupid. Why give the people more reason to hate them and risk more people joining the revolutionaries? The WG doesnt seem like the kind who would be grateful to a bloodline for centuries even if they were the founders of WG.
My theory is that there is more to the Tenryubito than meets the eye. Maybe they have some kind of secret passed down in their family to ensure that the WG gives them free hands. Either that or there is something special about the tenryubito-bloodline itself.
Of course, one rather simple possiblility is that the Goryusei are part of the Tenryubito themselves but I find that rather unlikely since the WG actually works as an organisation. I find it hard to believe that the Tenryubito are capable to foster any members of their family into powerfull leaders.
Anyway, what are your thoughts about this? Am I just overthinking it or do you think I may be on to something here?
