Meta Post: How did Shiro get his scar?
So a few
days ago I did a post about Shiro’s prosthetic arm and the response was amazing!
Many of you also showed interest in me doing one on Shiro’s scar as well, so here we are. This one took me a lot longer to make because it’s not as cut-and-dry
as the arm. There’s a lot of variables and speculation. We can’t really know for
sure what DID happen, but we can most likely deduce what DIDN’T happen. (WARNING–I’m going to discuss some graphic stuff, blood/gore/injuries, etc. So be aware.)
In this post we’ll go through the possibilities and see which ones are the most likely to occur. There will be one numbered point per general option, and I will narrow them down to the ones I think could happen. I would love for you to share your thoughts on the matter! At one point most of us, myself included, assumed Shiro got the scar on his face during battle, so this brings us to the first option:
1. The scar is the result of a sword or other blade swipe during battle
Let’s take a look at what would have to happen for this option to be the case. There’s an easy way to visualize this in 10 seconds or less.
