One of the things that I found really fun about the tournament format was how it enforced character arcs and growth in ways that weren’t entirely set in stone from the beginning. For example, Fei was originally conceived as far more of an asshole than she ended up actually being in the tourney proper, and a lot of that shift in characterization was informed by dint of her being constantly matched up with absolute sweethearts. Round 2 is where Fei’s crippling hero complex took the forefront of her character arc and never went away.
