Red's death had to be repaid. Except the "repayment" was really a buff of obscene power.
Yeah I agree with Lilwik that assuming Red's spell required 2 carnies is very speculative, there is definitely no proof or even suggestion of it. The only things that speculation is based off of (with alterative reasons to explain them) are:
- It took JoJo a few days to "make the deal". (This could just mean he was finding a Predictamancer to help him figure out a cost worth trading, or a Luckamancer to help boost him before casting it.)
- JoJo is now serving Charlie. (They're both Carnies, so this isn't neccessarily a surprise. Carnies are a disliked discipline, and JoJo doesn't have a boss anymore. Of course he's gonna take work from a Carny ruler, or a Ruler who shows no grudge against Carnies)
As for the repayment actually being a buff...that is speculation as well. We don't actually know what the repayment was. What you are referring to as a bufff could very well have been part of the deal, and the actual payment was even bigger (ya know...the destruction of an entire Side when their Queen has the idea to commit suicide).
I would also be hesitant to actually call the phenomenon of her being saved in Spacerock a "buff". Consider how many other units had to die or suffer in order for her to dust that way, and how her side's objectives were hurt. GK won the fight, but paid dearly for it, more so than they needed to.
