defiantly not Galleon as he was already married to Dr Silva but they got divorced years ago.
Well, I threw in Galleon as just someone comparable in age. That'd be a surprise, right?
I know Galleon has ideals on Dr. Silva, but, then there's nothing to say that he isn't interested in anybody else. Don't misunderstand, this is the same post I say she was interested in Milich.
I was sort of kidding and making random surprise theories. Actually, I could see Galleon and Haswar working... in the realms of fanfiction, I suppose. He's a Queen's Knight and has certainly seen Haswar enough times at official ceremonies, maybe even bodyguarded for her and Isato on occasion. They're the right age to share a lot of priorities in life. He's very serious, she's very casual, and opposites often attract (when they're complimentary, like I think they would both be). So it's not such
a huge jump as you'd think... save that there's not even a hint of it in the game at all.
Just as feasible... Josephine and Euram Barows. Urhm...

I do feel it may be the Prince and Lyon which may have been hinted at when the Prince and her held hands at the end although that may have just been an innocent gesture
I'd happily go with the Prince and Lyon. Clearly an extended relationship between the two is hinted at. Ironically, if something ever happened to Lymsleia and she died, that would make Lyon the official Queen of Falena. Nobody saw that
I still think the Isato / Haswar thing seems to fit the context better, though. Simply because of the pure love Isato has for her. He lavishes everything on her, and I think it would be a nice fit. I think it's strange mentioning marriage in Haswar's ending scene if it wasn't intended to be her
marriage, and judging by the fact that Isato never returns to his people (except for one occasion - to invite them to his wedding?) there must be something that keeps his attention in Falena. I know he's loyal to Haswar already, but... the endings seem to imply something... more.
As far as Sucession Wars and bonds and honour go... I think part of the problem was when Arshtat and Sialeeds were alive, the disputes on Succession were more intense there. With Lymsleia, there is only one person suitable for the throne (Frey just isn't considered), and there are no disputes. Arshtat goes nuts. Sialeeds is rogue. It's not like Haswar's family has a sense of playing by conventional rules. She herself appears as both an advocate of traditions (the Purifaction Rites) but also quite unconventional herself, in her manner, how she conducts herself, and how she views situations. Whilst I could imagine her going along with tradition when convenient and when it benefits the populace, I could also see her dropping those same traditions at the merest whim. She seems more frivilous than the rest of her family, even Sialeeds. So ultimately, what I'm saying is that whilst Haswar would certainly stand by her bond and attempt to prevent any more bloodshed or dispute over the thone, when Lym ascends, she doesn't really have any more reason to remain unmarried. There was enough dispute with Lym and Gizel, by the end of the Sun Rune War, I don't think anybody is going to be sitting there trying to put Haswar on the throne. By then, Frey is the public darling. Haswar, Sialeeds and Ashtat are pretty much old hat and there's a new reign, a new setup, Queens Knights and all. Lym is ruling (albeit young, but favoured) with Frey and Lyon, who are now famous as war heroes. Haswar is pretty much back into the background.
When you all add that up together, it seems to me like Haswar, if she fancied finally getting wed, wouldn't have any problem doing so. Lastly, it seems to be tragic that Haswar and Sialeeds can't, and the ending seems a reversal of that tragedy, a happy ending for the two.
That's what it seems to be to be the intention. However, maybe the surprise is a double wedding?
You know, Lyon, and Freyjadour, and Haswar and Isato.
who wonders if Marina and Belcoot got married.
