Supporting strategist like Apple or just any strategists for this post? Well for supporting strategists Apple started out to be not that impressive but by 2nd Fire Bringer War she was quite useful to Caeser. In S1 she seemed just to be a student of Mathiu's and nothing much more than that. S2 she was more of a begger and a guesser she really didn't add anything "strategic" to help them. I actually thought Klaus (I dont remember too many of the other supporting ones) was probaly the best supporting/secondary strategist because although his father, Lord Kiba, was a great general he still turned to his own son about advice in battle. To me Lucretia was the best strategist because she made best with the resources she had, wasnt afraid to get her hands dirty even if someones going to get hurt, and she constantly used her surrounding environment to her advantage. I thought Shu was okay he was really business oriented when it came to making desicons and when dealing with a foe like Luca Blight whos altimatums are either life or death, a business minded man who can make a "yes" and "no" answer quickly and unemotinaly is essential for that type of enemy. Caeser, like Shu in some ways, used clever techniques to fool the enemy and he uses a lot of reverse psychology probaly because he was going against his own brother, Albert, who knew his moves "move for move". Eleanor was descent but alot of her desicons still lead Lazlo into using his rune, so I dont think she was as effective as she should have been. She was really passionate and an alcoholic which made her really likable and I thought the alcohol symbolized her down to "earthness". Lastly Mathiu, also like Eleanor when it comes to passion and commrodary, was a good strategist with a lot of history behind him and if it wasn't for him the rest of the Silverbergs might of never come to furface still had his flaws. If anything a good strategist should be aware of everything inhouse. Sanchez betraying everybody and the fact that he was a spy for sometime, a keen strategist should know everything about the people hes dealing with. As I said above I thought Lucretia was the best of all, although she didn't come right now right away about Sialeeds betraying and why she did it, she knew that no action Sialeeds took she either couldn't or wouldn't be endangering the Prince, which thats what the strategist is there for, the leaders best interest.
