I was just thinking about how bizarre it must be for Dark to constantly have his emotions on display in the full RGB colour spectrum in the form of fractured, overlaying images of himself.
(I really had to think that one through before I wrote it out, and I’m still not sure if I actually managed to convey what I mean.)
I mean, this guy is supposed to be a master manipulator, right? How do you manipulate anyone when you’re unintentionally showing your mark (pun totally intended) absolutely everything going through your head?
So, what if all the little fractures we see pop up in Dark’s smooth facade only show up when he’s being filmed, or when he’s in the void. It’s entirely possible that he doesn’t realize that people have seen his soul try to literally tear itself apart.
In fact, Dark may not even be aware of just how violently he is coming apart at the seams.
