Zetsuen no Tempest episode 12 discussion

Episode 11 discussion can be viewed here

Currently, the suspect for Aika's murder is either Genesis or Zetsuen using a third party to commit the crime. Genesis doesn't seem like the type to kill for the sake of Hakaze because in the worst case scenario, she came back after a missile came from the sky. It was annoying how she was just given the offering, but at that point, she had everything important figured out. Receiving it any earlier would mean less knowledge than she currently has, but getting back to mainland two years ago doesn't seem like a bad idea. Genesis was still sleeping at that point and only revived because of Zetsuen.

I mentioned a theory of how Aika could have killed herself. I keep forgetting about the parents and how they also died. Since Mahiro is so focused on his sister, there is a chance his parents actually died differently to her and that could reveal the final piece of the puzzle. Marth thought it was possible for Aika to be the mage of Zetsuen which got me to thinking that the mage is not necessarily controlled by the tree. I believe Hakaze could choose to leave Genesis and start an evil life just as the mage of Zetsuen could choose to live a good life. It's harder in Zetsuen's case because it is suppose to only bring destruction. So I think Aika could have killed herself to save the world.

I don't understand completely why Yoshino and Mahiro were attacked by Genesis. I can accept that once they are deemed no longer useful or a danger to itself, it would be a good idea to remove them, but Yoshino especially could be helpful in the future. While Hakaze and Samon are healing them, it will prevent them from stopping the revival which is important now that Zetsuen has also revived.
