Yeah, I could see that. Euchre's really past the point of forgiveness, not from Rose, Mary, Raine, or himself. Sacrificing himself is the only way he could even come close to making up for what he's done.
True, but would he actually do it? I could see him getting what's coming to him, but he's way too much of a shadow character for him to actually show up when needed.
If he does do anything, he's gonna do it from far enough away where he's at no real risk of immediate harm. Of course, then the possibility arises that whatever he does to intervene severely injures/kills him. He ain't no spring chicken, after all.
Honestly I do not think Euchre is such a bad person.
Do not get me wrong he is not "good" in any standard metric. When presented with a very difficult situation, outing himself or killing his cousin. He took the worst possible decision possible. And he has had to pay for it ever since. Also it has been implied he wanted to conquer the world or something like that.
However other than that he has not done much more wrong ever since. He did not look after his daughter but I am sure Raine's mom never informed him about her. And I am sure he did not knew until Trace blackmailed, according to Raine, him into over-throwing down Mary lest he would kill his child and former lover. From that point on he has maintained to the sidelines, just occasionally helping. I it also implied, in the sketches so the canonical is debatable, that he allowed Raine and her mom to scape to Lyn'knoll after Trace's coup.
Also I do not think he will die soon. The guy knows way more than he lets go and i find he owes everyone, specially us the audience, a fat lore dump before he kicks the bucket.
If anyone is not gonna make it out alive of the comic I imagine it being Trace. Firstly because he is the single character with the most atonement to do. Sure he is, currently, not the man he once was, but he still commit a lot of atrocities before, as he is slowly realizing and I do not think there may be too many ways for him to redeem himself other than some heroic sacrifice for everyone he now holds dear.
It would also be a nice character arc, from trying to sacrificing everyone for his own gains: Resurrecting Saria and revenge. To sacrificing himself for everyone sake.
Secondly, i think it is implied in his name, at the end of the day all we may have of his legacy are traces*: His family, his friends but nothing from himself
*Yes this is the worst joke i have ever written, i will see myself out.
