I'm doing my billionth playthrough of FFVIII, and there's something that still doesn't quite stick, lore-wise.
When we confront Garden Master NORG, he says that Martine (Galbadia's Garden Master) is one of his subordinates. However, Martine gave us the order to assassinate Edea without NORG's permission.
Then again, NORG despises Edea and Cid.
What's the relationship between NORG and Martine? And why did Martine decide to give the order to assassinate Edea when Edea is seemingly in control of Galbadia?
