Something I noticed about Prompto
So, after playing the game and thinking about the FF XV anime, I remembered something about Prompto.
The kid always has that green sweatband on his wrist. Like, throughout the entire episode about Prompto’s backstory, he wears it. To bed, to go jogging, in his photo everyday montage, it’s always on his wrist.
Even right before he goes to meet Noct after they’re grown up, there’s a close up of him adjusting the sweatband. He looks like he’s a little bit nervous that he’s going to talk to the Prince of Lucis, but his focus isn’t on his overall appearance, its on that sweatband.
And it wasn’t until recently that it all kind of clicked. That’s where his barcode is. The poor kid grew up having to cover it. He was hiding it his entire life because he didn’t want people to know. I thought it was just a fashion accessory because - well, it was Prompto, I didn’t question it.
But now it makes everything a little bit more sad. Imagine him having to constantly cover it up so no one would know. He had to hide it because no one in Lucis could know that he was an MT experiment. Like - this poor child. And you could tell he really didn’t want Noct to know because of the above gif and obviously throughout the entire game he didn’t tell Noct (until close to the end).
It might be old news and someone might have already made a post about it, but it was just something I had been thinking about. I just - ugh. I love Prompto so much and now I feel so bad for him.
