Weapon Story


 Level 1


I see you in my sleep.

Restless sleep.

My heart flies to pieces each time I wake.

I burn to see you in the real world.


 Level 2


I hunt for the woman who pines for you.

The scream pleases me.

Your body and heart shall be mine.


 Level 3


Your heart.  I long for it.

Yet it does not return my love in kind.

All you care for is your cold, dead wife.

So I must at least take your body.


 Level 4


Your head is mine.  Beautiful head.

The eyes that scorned me are so lovely now.

Hate me if you like.  Begrudge me all.

You are still mine forever.

      This weapon story becomes creepy when you understand that it's about N2's feelings to 9S over the course of route C.

        ""Stark white samurai gauntlets"

        ...not quite.

        I've no idea why all the gauntlet weapons are helmets or heads, rather than gloves or fists.
