.Mmmm, I can’t agree. Pheros wouldn’t make for a good rivalry or compel you to combat against her. The point of her is to portray insight into a different aspect of Valm and Valhart and make you realize that things aren’t black and white. While that could work for a tactician rivalry, I think the roles belongs to somebody will cause you to continue fighting, whereas if Pheros was utilized, you would question your fight, which is good, but then there’s not really much pushing you to go on, so the plot is lacking and it’s really frustrating why we’re even there anymore and there would be too much packpeddling for what needs to be done. Excellus fullfills the deseired character type for the job, the game just never used him well enough to mark him as your formidable tactician rival.
Also, Cervantes really isn’t just a mustache joke… I don’t really know what to say, except that you can see his character beyond the mustache, the game just didn’t expand on Valm that much, so you don’t get time to see it much. But he’s a wonderful character. The Valm arc, despite its flaws, has some of the best enemy characters you face in the game. I wouldn’t agree to taking any of them out.
