True. Guess I’ll just blur it and hope that it will be enough.
SPOILERS INVOLVING SAGE, A CHARACTER THAT IS MEET SOME TIME AFTER THE AVERY SCENE AND IS MAINLY KNOWN FOR HER MASSIVE HATRED TOWARD THE BEARER DUE TO EVENTS INVOLVING HER BROTHER AND THAT EVEN WE WHO PLAYED THE DEMO KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT.
THE RELATIONSHIP DESCRIPTIONS AND MY PERSONAL THOUGHTS ON THEM WILL BE IN BLURRY TEXT. DO NOT CLICK ON IT IF YOU WISH TO KEEP IN THE DARK ABOUT HER RELATIONSHIP DESCRIPTIONS.
The wolf has given their warning.
At =10, it reads “She’s finally fullfilled her dream of strangling you. She sleeps well at night with that memory fresh in her mind.” …I’ll admit, my automatic reaction was ‘GEEZUS ’ I feel like I was personally underestimating the hatred she has toward the Bearer, thinking that just being a nice Bearer would help soften her up somewhat. this girl’s resentment runs really deep.
at more >10, it reads “She believes you’re attempting to drive her to the brink of insanity with your constant interactions.” Sage is clearly has her deeply rooted hatred toward the Bearer. It’s not surprising to see then, that she is simultaneously wary and flat out confused by the fact the Bearer is interacting with her at all, considering the circumstances of their first meeting. It must be doubly confusing when the Bearer doesn’t act like how she’s been expecting her brother’s murderer to be like.
At >30, “You must have a death wish, truly.” Honestly…this line amuses me the most . Like, even the game is lamp-shading how resilient (or just plain reckless) the Bearer must be to have gotten the relationship to this point. That said, while there’s still hostility in the words, the resent doesn’t feel as severe. Maybe that an indication that a tiny bit of her anger is softening up.
Now this is the part that caught me my attention and brings up a good few questions.
If her romance gets triggered, it reads “She often finds herself throwing knives at a picture of your face in bitter frustration.” There still that feel of resentment and hostility even in the romance description…But I have two major question about the wording.
1) How and why does she have a picture of Bearer? The fact a picture of the Bearer exists at the moment could indicate that the romance itself could be triggered some time after the First Trial, when people might be getting less fearful and more curious about the Bearer, to the point some are taking pictures of this infamous celebrity connected to Olympus’ Golden Boy Aeson. Either way, Sage would’ve had to gone out of her way to actually get a picture of the Bearer if it is a photography (or, who knows, maybe she is into photography, which I’ll admit would be quite surprising) or actively been looking for something that has the Bearer’s picture on it.
2) What exactly is causing her to experience bitter frustration? the fact that she knows she’s got feelings for the bearer at all and feels it is all types of wrong (possibly because of her resentment or possibly because of some guilt for her actions toward them in the past). Or (the most out there theory I can make) she’s feeling frustrated because she isn’t able to land a single knife on the Bearer’s picture. Not because she isn’t able to skill-wise; but subconsciously, she CAN’T bring herself to do it, leaving knives planted everywhere BUT the picture of the Bearer. Either way, it seems that Sage is likely going to be struggling greatly with the possibility that she is growing feelings for the Bearer and may not even know what to do about it.
Well I got that off my chest.
