Their ideals amount to little beyond being Godwin no.1 fanboy and fangirl and I can't see any circumstances where'd they ever sincerely congratulate the prince. Especially Alenia is completely out of character, she's a bitch throughout the game and there she is hopping and clapping her hands.
They might as well have thrown in Childerich or Guisu for good measure.
At the very least they could have stuck with people that were actually killed by or near the Sun Rune so there'd be a reason for them to appear in it's vision.
Zahhak made more sense then anyone on the enemy side. Like Marscal (Whom recommended him to the queens knights) he is authoritarian, statist. Not to mention he is related to the godwins. He expressed early in the game he believed ferid to be too much of a idealist and Falena would benefit from strengthening ties with the Godwin faction. It made sense to me for Zahhak to remain loyal to his own family and political party, especially with the queen dead. Did anyone really think he would choose a little girl monarch over Marscal? Combine all this with his huge ego and fanatical beliefs and he has no place in the "Rebel Army".
He does appear saluting the prince as a shade during the games ending. I take this as him conceding that while he stayed loyal to the godwins he respects and trusts the prince to protect falena in his place.
And of course Alenia was obviously in love with Gizel. So "Out of the blue" is not the right phrase really. The only flaws in thier characters I saw was they never seem to wake up from thier delusions and died needless deaths (Much like Marscals other generals). Even Gizel and Marscal himself seem to see the flaws in thier logic at the end and tested the princes resolve knowing it's all they could do for falena now.
