the thing that really gets me about “erwin is so ~shady~” meta is that it shows an incredible misunderstanding of his character. yes, he is willing to resort to very underhanded ways to get what he wants, but it’s not because he’s cruel and selfish, or that he has a hidden agenda. erwin smith is absolutely genuine and idealistic, he has a very large and noble goal. however, he is also pragmatic and a realist. he isn’t naive enough to think that he can achieve this alone, with only fair and chivalrous methods. he will do whatever it takes for the good of all humanity, even if it means getting his hands dirty, manipulating people, and sacrificing soldiers.
erwin is morally ambiguous, cunning, and manipulative, but he isn’t cruel, selfish, or a bad person. he’s simply what he has to be, for the good of mankind.
