Is William Minerva an enemy of Emma and friends?

William Minerva is a friend of Emma and her friends. Minerva helped the children to escape from the plantation (Grace-Field House). He has written a variety of information in the books in the library of the plantation (Grace-Field House) in encrypted form.

He conveyed messages to the children by means of Morse code with an owl motif. Minerva also told them that Grace-Field House is a dangerous place with the words "RUN", "DANGER", "MONSTER", and "FARM".

It's amazing that a child can understand Morse code!

Minerva also taught the children a safe place to go after their escaping from Grace Field. He donated a book called "The Adventures of Ugo" to the plantation which contained wisdom on how to survive in the outside world. William Minerva truly knew the truth about the world.

Can William Minerva travel between the world of demons and the world of humans?

 

William Minerva

The Promised Neverland is a world divided into two worlds: the world of demons and the world of humans. Before it was divided, it was one world, and demons and humans battled with each other endlessly. Then, a person named “The one” made a pact with demons a thousand years ago, "Humans will not hunt demons. In exchange, demons will not hunt humans”. With that promise, the demons could no longer hunt humans, therefore they farmed and ate their farmed humans.

Emma and her companions are farm children for demons. This means that Emma and her companions are still stranded in the world of the demons today.

Point!

The Promised Neverland means an escape from the demon world.

Because in the demon world (Grace Fieldhouse), he brought with him not only books but also many other things created in human society. This means that William Minerva is bringing those goods from the human world.

Who is William Minerva?

William Minerva's real name is James Rutley. I would guess that he is probably in his thirties.

Point!

Humans don't hunt demons, and demons don't hunt humans in return.

 William Minerva is the thirty-fifth generation of the human world family that made the pact. The family has kept their promise as mediators between humans and demons for nearly a thousand years. Their family may have brought the education system of the human world to raise edible children to excel in the demon world. Minerva's family protected the majority of humans but allowed demons to raise children for demon food.

But William Minerva bemoaned the sacrifices the children were being forced to make, and about a couple of decades ago, he began leaving various ciphers on upscale plantations such as Grace-Field House. And he set up a safe house where children could go if succeeded in escaping. As a result, Emma and her friends set out for Goldie Pond, located at point A08-63, which is indicated on the pen left by William Minerva.

The second season of the Promised Neverland anime will depict how Enma and others will escape from Grace-Field House and head to the point A08-63, where the pen left behind by William Minerva points to. Will Emma and her friends be able to escape to the human world safely?

oyuchan
So William Minerva is on the side of Emma and her friends!
Yes. Emma and her friends believe in Minerva and head to point "A08-63". I'm looking forward to their future.
