I will write more detailed thoughts later on when I go deeper in the demo (I will say though that I’m already hooked and curious to see more of the story); I just wanted to share a thought that has been rather persistent in my mind ever since playing the demo and reading the bio of the gods.
Hulda and Helmos sound very close with each other; the fact neither is often seen without the other seem to be a strong implication of this fact. They both were also ones of the gods that took far too much pleasure in doing their own part in imprisoning Death. And I have seen many cases in stories where people looking for justice against some kind of wrong get creative with how they go about it, to the point death would seem like a mercy.
…So what if a Death, who had a thirst for revenge to some degree, decided to do something to one twin, make sure the other twin was completely aware of what was happening, but putting that remaining twin in a position of helplessness by making it too late for that twin to do anything to aid the other, while keeping the duo from being unable to even be together?
At least, that’s the idea that’s come to my mind with one way to deal with the twins. Still trying to play with what way Death could probably approach their payback in regards to Chamion (who seemed to enjoy his own part in dealing with Death probably even more than the twins).
