It would appear that you have missed the point that I was trying to make.
People lambast Kei and Euchre for individual moments of being a "bad" person, however they then forgive the lifelong racism and the past outright atrocities that Trace committed and continues to commit simply because he has the title of protagonist. Keiren and Euchre do acts of goodness of their own free will, and yet they are constantly held down to their worst moments, while Trace is absolved of all of his sins not because he chose to be good, but because of what essentially amounts to divine intervention that finally kind of stopped him. And even then I emphasize, "kind of" as he has shown his propensity to fall to acts of extreme evil even against fellow humans.
All I'm saying is that there's some Serious hypocrisy going on up in here.

to be fair, trace wasn't always evil, the fact that he has turned back into such a pure, lovable person proves that.
kei, however, was always the way he is, and always will be.
people saying euchre is selfish, but not kei, makes no sense to me.
i stand by what i said about kei.
Where in the world do you even get these ideas of Trace being a good and even a better person from?
While living in a society that fosters racism that Trace Has absolutely demonstrated All of his life, Keiren is one of very few human characters who did not show signs of hard racism as a young person and indeed forged a friendship with a keidran completely of his own volition up through only a year ago. (Other humans include Eric, but he grew up to be an active slave trader so screw him, and possibly Karen but she's 99% comic relief) Even if he temporarily screwed it up, he has not only show remorse for that screw up, but has also actively taken steps to try and make amends for it. Trace has spent a scant few months being "good" and he still falls to terrible evils even after his divine intervention as mentioned above.
And yes, there is Keiren's continued racism towards Wolves. And that racism is 110% justified. Wolves are not kind to humans in Mekkan and are absolutely deserving of their hatred in the current climate. They are the ones who killed Keiren's King. They attacked his town under disguise to try and foster discord among the developing Human/Tiger alliance. They likely have attacked Edinmire prior to this with their rather long list of "Dead and Missing" attached to the town board. They razed several human cities including Wreathwood, a town that was actually welcoming to Keidran, including wolves. And they've demonstrated to the audience that they're willing to kill their own at the slightest inclination of fraternizing with a human. Heck even two of the wolven "protagonists" are just killers for hire!
The wolves aren't being labeled as "evil" just because of a few bad apples, the whole dang orchard is rotten and it's lucky that even a single bushel is actually palatable.
