Etro was set up before the Nothing actually assaulted Novus. "Etro was basically the force that told them that Xenolith was evil--imagine having no knowledge of good/evil. You'd just bow to the greater power. Xenolith didn't want them to submit. It needed them to fight.

It did not change their chaotic wills."

"I was part of the plot to shed the Cocoon fal'Cie of their bondage.

why did they lose their brands on Novus? = because the Final Focus was to save Pulse?
