Morkus from Orkus
This is true.The entire point of the current pro-alignment argument (such as it sprung fully formed out of the muck a few years or so ago after 'TRADITION' and 'But the players will run wild' failed to strike home) is that it is a useful tool for figuring out how a monster will behave without having to 'waste time' on actually reading the description and getting real actual information about the monster.
This is irrelevant. What the creature says is not relevant to the fact that @Oofta determined one appropriate way to play CE at the drop of a hat. Just like it's not wrong for someone to make an evil copper dragon or a good ogre, it's also not wrong to play a CE creature differently from the written lore. Alignment was very useful to @Oofta there.Adding an alignment to this creature caused you to think they had a cruel, murderous society ruled by the strong with personal honor when they're solitary tortured creatures who kill not for greed, but out of twisted envy toward others they can't fathom. It didn't provide you anything useful about the monster at all, which is supposed to the point, right?
