[spoiler]For a long time I considered Fero one of the less interesting characters on the show because he’s such a persistent stubborn person that there wasn’t really development.
This season just turned that around entirely.
Fero refusing to bend for his god(s) is such a good culmination of his refusal to compromise. Contrary to what others have said, I don’t feel like this criticism of Fero is a declaration that Fero is wrong, it’s just highlighting a problem he has. Even if Gods are making that criticism, the Gods of Heiron are far from infallible.
Fero is comfortable asserting what’s right and just pushing for that. When the gnolls needed someone to broker deals, he instantly gave up and left because he couldn’t just fix that problem. There’s definite harm to how Fero tries to barrel into what he personally decided is right, but you can also see his point when everyone else had personal issues with Arrell and wastes the chance to learn any more about his plan.[/spoiler]
