cnidarianphilosophy asked: Everything I've found about Gran Bwa have described him as a big forest spirit, and a loa of protection, so could you explain your interpretation?
I never actually heard anything about Gran Boa being about protection, so that’s part of the reason it’s not that. Originally it was more focused on the fact that he doesn’t liked to be seen (hence the invisibility they’ve been giving Furio in the past). Also, maybe this is because I play far too many games like dark souls/demon souls, but I tend to associate forests with poisons (spiders, insects, jungle snakes, plants - ref. Jumanji) which is ultimately how their powers are functioning. So hopefully that is enough of a tie in to the actual spirit, but past that I definitely took some creative liberties (though really, I did so on every spirit to be fair - Jean Petro has nothing to do with his actual spirit counterpart for instance)
Also a bit more on their powers: I felt naming them Loa of Control was a more concise way of saying what they do, but originally thought of calling them the Loa of Toxins (specifically neurotoxins). The way they work is that they basically can control and manipulate the cells of whatever they’re infecting. This allows Furio (who, as the host, is able to control this manipulation) complete control over those infected. Likewise this takes a lot of energy and thought to individually manipulate, hence Furio stabbing himself to create a neural link with the other dagger. As it stands currently, the statue will just mirror Furio’s movements, but that doesn’t mean he can’t just control it like a marionette if he so chooses.
Thanks for the question and I hope that answers it - sorry if it’s super wordy haha
another chapter in the bag!
and then Furio stabbed himself in the head and died, and everyone lived happily ever after. THE END
yo FUCK IT - dark souls 2 late night stream!!!
there’s only one chance to see me fuck this up as hard as I likely will on a completely blind run!!!
(also I would anticipate some technical difficulties haha)
