Are there references supporting the idea that Onar is neutral instead of aligned with Lornon in the current lore? His ICE incarnation (Omir) was counted among the dark spirits (Kelfour_Edition_volume_II_number_II) but newer references are hard to find. ZHOUY1 (talk) 17:45, 8 November 2016 (CST)

This came up in the Slack and supposedly documentation has been wrong, but the Arkati boxes are correct. I put it on the list for Kaikala to confirm. VANKRASN39 (talk) 18:07, 8 November 2016 (CST)
Message from Kaikala:
He is not neutral. He's definitely dark/Lornon -- considered "Minor Lornon" if we're getting technical; plus he's most closely aligned with Eorgina and Luukos, so he's not a neutral guy. The only time he might be considered as being neutral is if a Liabo Arkati used his services, which would be highly unusual, and even then, I'm not sure we'd classify the action as a neutral one ;)
As far as the Arkati Boxes: It looks like the coder grouped all of the Lesser Spirits into a group called "Lessers" which got clumped into 'neutral' rather than splitting them into their assigned pantheons (I would suspect in part so that the 'neutral' box had more than Zelia & Gosaena in it, heh). The boxes not having the correct assignment here definitely doesn't change the overall game lore/designation, and I'd be cautious of basing any type of Arkati change on an item/script -- if any Arkati were ever to change pantheon alignment, there would be actual official documentation about it (and definitely some sort of storyline or event to explain the change).
