I'm not sure what I was thinking, either. All I could think of is that Sissel's personality had somehow split into two or something... The game somehow kept topping my crazy expectations, so I didn't quite know what to think.
Yeah actually. :/ The PW games had their share of crazy twists/evil twins/split personalities, etc, so I wouldn't have been surprised at anything. The main chara's sidekick was a spirit medium, after all.
Sissel worked with Lynne for a while before he was shot by those blue guys. They tried to kill Lynne too, but it wasn't as easy with Sissel's ghost around. Lynne told Sissel she didn't know him because she forgot after her first death. As for Sissel's evil twin (wink wink) the blue assassins stole Sissel's dead body and gave it a new soul with their "advanced technology" to help with their plans for that country!
I know! That was my thought too! I can't call any pictures of him with that face "Sissel" anymore. Now I'm stuck drawing his true form all the time. I'm sad now. All this exciting stuff he got dragged into and he was just a friggin' CAT!
