Vaal: You monster!!! You a-ate her! My soulminion!! WHAT IS YOUR DEAL?!
Roirr: My deal? What a curious expression. I don’t have a “deal”. I needed sustenance.
Not 'dinner'. My bad.
Fleshweaving isn't about forbidden magics
This doesn't negate the possibility of the hero using them to become a Fleshweaver. However, it does mean that the study of Fleshweaving is not about learning forbidden magicks. Rather, it is about fully utilizing one, namely the consuming of spirits, to weave in a particular manner.
As for the hero never using forbidden magick, I don't actually remember seeing that quote, so I can't comment. Regardless, since these statements didn't make it into the game, it doesn't really count as retcon; it likely means that
The concept has been fleshed out since it was first introduced in game
Besides copying faces we saw no other fleshweaving skill.
Roirr's Izbor suit was actually him using a forbidden magick (one which required Izbor's heart...). We have the face-nommer for that.
The only Fleshweaving skill we have actually seen was when Roirr rewired Ludomir's brain; which, admittedly, was at least as disgusting. I wonder how similar that is to the effects on the Ignominious' brains... That in itself probably wasn't forbidden... unless the damage to Ludomir's brain affected his Elemental Spirit or soul in some way...
I am curious about whether Fleshweavers can look like ordinary humans, though. Evidently we won't be locked into wearing the Fleshweaver class, although it's still a possibility that there would be some kind of permanent mark those who unlocked Fleshweaver would have. Or... not...
Maybe becoming a Fleshweaver will be preceded by a visit to the Face Nommer.

Color doesn't determine whether or not a soul is "pure", that's just based on their natural element. Aegis is blue for ice, Baltael white/purple for wind, etc.
Those are elemental spirits, not souls.
A tainted soul
Think of our form when we met Aegis in the PoES/the Soulweaver armor death animation. We were not attuned to an ice-spirit before meeting Aegis, and yet our soul was cyan-blue.
On top of that, I don't believe that being a Chaosweaver equates to a corrupted soul
Chaosweavers weave with corrupted elemental spirits
This has not changed
By EDELIA'S LAW you would be considered a chaosweaver
Corrupted soulally can corrupt your soul
'Can' presumably meaning if you Chaosweave with them, based on previous statements of Dove's (like the long gone one about Pandora and Tomix being gray on the spectrum of corrupt/pure spirits...).
after all, by technicality Tomix was a Chaosweaver, due to his use of Soulweaving for combat, but does that mean his soul was tainted?
I've mentioned this before (2016ish?), but Tomix performed a forbidden magick to weave the coat, which meant he'd have a tainted soul. We saw his soul in the finale, and it looked suspiciously like an elemental spirit that wasn't feeling so good (until Envy halted whatever kind of decay the soul/spirit was going through when the spell 'consumed him', and bound the soul/spirit to the body with green soulthread). It was certainly at least partially corrupted, and not in good shape.
