Someone told me that Leliana can’t declare the next age as the Nug Age. Well you all forgot that we are talking about
Leliana aka the former Left Hand of the Divine, Spymaster, Nightingale of the Imperial Court, Seneschal of the Inquisition
and Princess Stabbity Stab Kill Kill!
Stories claim she was beautiful once. A priestess of Athena. Loyal and devout in action, but Poseidonwas determined to make her his own. It was the fairness of her features, the golden of her hair, that attracted the Sea God. Medusa, a mortal maiden, could not refuse.
When Athena learned of Medusa’s betrayal, she punished the priestess. Those fair features were hideously wrought and those golden locks twisted to hissing vipers. Anyone that met her eyes was petrified – a statue for all eternity. Medusa fled, frightened, ashamed and furious. For years she hid from the world, nursing a festering hatred for all things, craving beauty but having none, seeing none, until she became the monster she appeared to be.
A Ghost-compiled summation of observed behaviors and activities over the course of one cycle in the company of a Risen Gunslinger.
[Entry 1.1] Guardian has been standing completely still in Tower plaza for approximately 3 hours. By my count, Guardian has not slept in 36 hours.
[Entry 1.2] Guardian spent fifteen minutes repeatedly jumping off of Tower. Hence, ten minutes of near-constant Ghost revival, punctuated only by a single visit to Eris Morn. Eris refused to dance with Guardian.
[Entry 1.3] Guardian spoke briefly with Cayde-6 while crouched on Vanguard table. I could offer him no explanation.
Guardian returned to orbit; set course for Mars.
[Entry 1.4] Guardian encountered another Gunslinger while on patrol. The two attempted some kind of synchronized handshake or greeting for the better part of five minutes without speaking. I do not believe they succeeded in their timing.
[Entry 1.5] Both Guardians spent one hour attempting to kills Vex Hydras with nothing but throwing knives. Succeeded. Admired each other’s cloaks.
Guardian returned to orbit alone; set course for Luna.
[Entry 1.6] Guardian spent one hour repeatedly trying to jump over the Hellmouth while riding Sparrow. Did not succeed. Guardian has not slept in 42 hours.
[Entry 1.7] Guardian received assassination bounty from Hunter Vanguard Cayde-6. Danced upon receipt; shot several rockets into the sky while spinning in circles.
[Entry 1.8] Guardian has grown strangely quiet. Has been transmatting various weapons and armor for several minutes.
[Entry 1.9] Guardian has equipped gauntlets crafted from the bones of an extinct creature. Spent 45 minutes adjusting color scheme of armor. Seems quite fond of appearance; asked me for several image-captures. Complimented her own cloak several times.
[Entry 1.1.0] Guardian abruptly re-summoned Sparrow, rode Sparrow into depths of Hive temple. Did not dismount Sparrow. Sparrow destroyed due to repeated collisions with sentient and natural obstacles.
[Entry 1.1.1] Upon reaching Summoning Pits, Guardian attempted to kill Hive Abomination with sidearm. Failed.
[Entry 1.1.2] Upon Ghost revival, Guardian managed to single-handedly annihilate Hive Abomination with the combined power of the City’s finest weaponry. Proceeded to dance on corpse of eliminated foe.
[Entry 1.1.3] Guardian spent approximately one hour shooting walls of Hive tunnels, attempting to spell rude words.
Guardian returned to orbit, set course for Tower.
[Entry 1.1.4] Guardian spent 5 hours attempting to persuade Commander Zavala to read lewd/inappropriate Fireteam names over Tower PA system. Guardian has not slept in 55 hours.
Guardian returned to Orbit. Set course for the Reef.
[Entry 1.1.5] Guardian spent seven minutes crouched behind Petra Venj, trying to hide from other Guardians. Obtained bounties from the regent. Leapt to her death in apparent celebration.
Guardian returned to orbit. Set course for Venus.
[Entry 1.1.6] Guardian singlehandedly killed Stirok, Banner of Oryx. Proceeded to dance on corpse of eliminated foe.
[Entry 1.1.7] Guardian lost consciousness [slept?] for ~30 seconds while dancing; jerked awake screaming, related a description of a “Giant, bottomless mouth” attempting to devour her.
Guardian returned to orbit. Set course for Taken Dreadnought.
[Entry 1.1.8] Appears to be in a bad mood. Refused to speak with me. Spent duration of journey in silence, stroking bone gauntlets.
[Entry 1.1.9] Guardian descended into depths of Dreadnought. Grim of aspect. Has repeatedly refused comm contacts from Vanguard. Seems determined. Guardian has not slept in 62 hours.
[Entry 126.96.36.199] Guardian has utterly destroyed legions of Hive thrall, several minor priests, and a Coven Mother.
[Entry 188.8.131.52] Guardian has discovered apparent target: Hive Priest.
[Entry 184.108.40.206] Guardian has dispatched said target using only her boot-knife. Did not cease stabbing corpse of creature until long after it had expired and her armor was covered in gore and ichor. Ignored my attempts to drag her away - too busy laughing. I returned to stasis in protest.
Guardian returned to orbit. Set course for Tower.
[Entry 220.127.116.11] Guardian repeatedly asking me “What I just said.” I have not said anything to her. She seems distracted. Has not slept in at least 68 hours.
[Entry 18.104.22.168] Guardian spoke briefly to Hunter Vanguard while dancing on table. Returned to Tower plaza.
[Entry 22.214.171.124] Guardian has been staring into the sky without blinking for one hour. Guardian is muttering to someone who is not me.
Hel’s conflicting struggle between benevolence and malice will force her to one extreme or the other. A time will come when Hel will fulfill her prophecy, though it is yet unknown if she will be a shadow of darkness or a force of light.
At first glance, silly me thought the moving lights in the Pitioss Ruins were giant floating DNA strands or
something, but they’re just glowing creatures. They aren’t bats
though, they’re pretty small. They look more like dragonflies. Like insects. Daemon insects. Then it hit me: They may be related to
The dungeon has black ooze falling from the ceiling and smeared in some
places, making me think the scourge had completely infested the area,
like how the scourge created the soot in the air in the World of Ruin,
or the ooze on Ardyn’s demon-face.
The area pointing to the scourge also made me think the glowing creatures may be pointing to the scourge as well since there are absolutely no daemon’s or enemies in the dungeon.
The insects seem to hang around light. Ardyn has a missing line that hints the meteor Titan is holding up is where the scourge came from. Maybe they were attracted to the light of the Astral Shard and picked up the scourge and spread it to humans.
Though, I do have to point out something. In English, the lore says the parasites “Mutated”. These are texts I wish I knew the original Japanese to because ‘mutated’ sounds like neither the bugs nor the parasites came with the meteor. It’s possible the bugs got near the Astral Shard and it changed the parasites in the bugs or changed the bugs thus changing the parasites. The bugs changing would explain why they look like daemons.
Whatever happened, these may be the insects that spread the scourge in ancient Eos, causing people to vanish and become daemons.
Problem with this idea: I don’t know how they could have infected people. Mosquito’s spread malaria. Also, the glowing creatures don’t attack Noctis or bother him, in fact, they scatter around him when he’s really close, but it’s possible they were only interested in his light.
Alternate explanations: - They may be normal harmless daemons. They’re really strange creatures, though. - They may be a type of fantasy bat and I should stop thinking about it. But why do they group up like that? DAEMON BATS. - They help to show where you’re supposed to go. I remember seeing only five groups in a frustratingly long dungeon so I doubt this is the case.
