I hope that you all get better and are taking all the time you need to recover, we wouldn't want you guys stressing over your work when your health is in the dumps
This quest honestly made me think of Brainiac's narration from the Injustice 2 reveal trailer, but one line in particular feels applies to this questline: "Yesterday's loss leads to madness"
We already got the basic idea of why The Rose was formed and why so many people felt the need to join an organization to end the threat of magic once and for all, from there we can assume they are simply misguided on this absolute notion of regulating magic. However, with Zad's , Akanthus', and the Rose Agent introduction and there needless desire to chain and collar all magical and recently non-magical beings and therefore we can only deduce that the The Rose's true desire is to control and dominate magic for their own end until of course we interact more with Jaania and thus it appear the organization has suffered the fate of all like it: betrayal and corruption. Then we see The Rose's splinter group The Thorns and Mr lord Theanbuttface and we think BY THE AVATARS JUST WILT AND DIE ALREADY!!!
Despite all of that I still think about some of the foot soldiers, Sam,Magus Neron, Jaania, and even possibly Theano(He's still a buttface though) and it's this quest that made me think how loss easily gets people to have either some of the best or worst determinations there is and at the end of it they all come together to create and support this "regime" of there's no matter how mad and flawed it may be in order to achieve their goals whether it be to personally end magic, the protection of all, revenge, or to feel at peace with a loved one. The loss of those killed or left behind from a catastrophe or basic event you felt helpless to stop can truly be a strong motivator in aiding folly.
