Issues with killing civilians doesn’t necessarily mean issues with killing villains/henchmen. Or it could be just pure desperation and need overriding any moral qualms.
Hehe, you’re probably right that he does know what they are in theory, but I don’t know that if he just sees the MC’s markings he’d be able to identify them. Reaction-wise, He just seems so… harmless I guess would be the closest word? Like it seems like it would take harming the Rangers, civilians, his family, or Sidestep, to make him furious or react very negatively.
That’s very possible, but I’m assuming that the MC at least has a friendly/respectful or romantic relationship with them if they are revealing themselves as a Re-Gene. If the Re-Gene revelation is accompanied with more explanation on HB and what happened to Sidestep afterwards, I highly doubt Steel would turn the MC over to the Farm without a second thought. He may, foolishly, want to go through the proper chain of command about it, but I think it would be a very big crisis of faith and a character defining moment. Does he value his friends and allies or his country more, sort of thing.
As for Argent, if we disclose the possession and are entirely unrepentant about it, then yeah I could see that happening. She’s already the loose cannon of the Rangers though, an impressive feat considering Ortega, so I doubt she would jump straight to following the rules and directives of a secret government organization without hesitation. She can already be attracted to a massacring villain, I don’t think being a Re-Gene is a relationship-ender in her book. She seems value a person’s actions and abilities more than their background.
