Yeah, I've caught up with DotC and I still don't really get Clear Sky. And I'm not sure the Erins do either.
Like, at this point the series sort of makes it seem like he's gotten over/past everything and that he really is a good guy with a big heart (didn't buy it with Ashfur and I ain't buying now), but then he goes and acts like he's the best leader and acts like only he knows the answers/only his answers are right. All that to me can easily, if not already, show signs of a villain. I have the feeling that he isn't going to be evil though and just be a jerkwad.
