Can Blue be ethical?

Lately, the amoral scientist aspect of has been played more predominantly.

However, without or influences, I think can still be ethical and easily "leashed".

The philosopher archetype is obvious, but I was thinking more of a pragmatic sort of morality, by which preservation allows greater understanding (incidently, this is easily translated as 's no-kill policy).

Definitely, it doesn't even need an outside color splash. It can also be amoral too though. Depends on the character.

Of course since the big time villians favor high intellengnece for schemes to defeat their adversaries.

It's one of the most common things villians do.
Definitely. Hell, even can be ethical, if society itself is wrong.

EDIT: Just noticed the fridge brilliance.

Of course it can. Blue wants improvement. Not just of the self, but also of society. Depending on your philosophical outlook, being ethical is a big part of improving society.

Why could it not be? Or any other 'colour' for that matter.

Blue is not concerned with ethics -- neither morality nor amorality are inherantly more blue.  Some might argue that a lack of interest in morality equates to black-esque amorality, but really blue's stand is more passive than that.  It simply does not care one way or the other, and thus it is up to the blue individual to be personally moral or amoral.

I wouldn't say Blue is unconcerned with ethics. It would find them very curious and interesting to study.

I think that you are either mistaken or, more likely, use "amoral" very differently from the way I do. It seems to me that when bad, black is "immoral" (it knows the law and deliberately breaks it anyway), while blue is "amoral" (totally ignores the law).

Moral = Personally adheres to a set of values
Immoral = Does not adhere to someone's personal set of values
Amoral = Does not personally adhere to any set of values

Moral = Personally adheres to a set of values
Immoral = Does not adhere to someone's personal set of values
Amoral = Does not personally adhere to any set of values


Other possible definition of amoral:

Acting outside the realm or nuetrally with the realm of a set of values.

Immoral more means "goes against society's set of values".

Moral means "adheres to society's set of values".

Amoral means "doesn't care about society's set of values".

Moral itself comes from the Latin word for "custom".

is the most amoral color combination: Black thinks morality is stupid, and green thinks morality is unnatural.

, however, is the most moral color. In fact, custom is practically the only source for "what you are allowed to do" for white.

Black is not immoral, since Black is perfectly willing to work along with laws that serve it. It is inherently amoral because it only does whatever will help itself, moral or immoral; extreme pragmatism is a trait of Black.

Blue can be either moral or amoral, since stance on morality isn't a focus of Blue.

But morality is not unnatural. At least not to Great Apes and most of the fantasy humanoid races that are commonly associated with Green in this game. Law is unnatural, but Law is not Morality. 


And Green respects tradition almost as much as White, if not more. Green is the color of status quo. Green values its place in the ecosystem and its ancestors' own customs more than anything.
