My face is proof of my identity. While you find proof of yours, we’re running up that hilltop, failing facial recognition, belly bumping a lady, suffering surly knights, channeling Elden Ring’s intro narrator, testing the Jowston State Agreement, calling a false flag, reading into the dots, bloodying their nose a little, turning Gilbert’s coat and also sometimes killing Gilbert, furthering Jowy’s disillusionment, plotting an escape, lying to Pilika, cutting in with Suikoden 1 lore, asking Anabelle why she fights, corrupting a save file, and babysitting an orphan. It’ll be something to tell your grandkids about, I’m sure.
