    The Lord Blades (Spoilers?)

    Post by FruitPunchNinja on Thu Oct 25, 2012 3:26 am

    I am bringing my SL100 mage through the new content, and think i have discovered some possible lore. I was wearing the full painting guardian set just cause it looked cool with my mage, and realized just how similar Ciarans set is. Well not similar but they both have the ponytail coming out the back of the head peices.

    I speculate that Ciaran is related somehow to the painting guardians, and the item descriptions back this up. It explains itself look.

    Ciaran Set:Helm-"The cyclops headpiece is common to all of the Lord's Blades, but Ciaran was determined to adorn this soft porcelain mask as a unique decoration of honor. The mask is lined with ivory locks of hair." rest of set-"A robe common to all of the Lord's Blades. These deadly women shift nimbly between layers of darkness, etching streaks of gold into the night air, and planting visions of terror into the minds of their targets."

    Painting Guardian Set:"They have guarded the Great Paintings of Ariamis for ages, passing their duty down through the generations, but the reason for doing so passed from all memory long ago."




    I don't know if anyone else has speculated about this, probably have. I haven't watched any of the lore videos for the new content ENB does, he usually looks deeply into things so i would be surprised if he didn't bring this up. I'm thinking that the painting guardians are related to the Lord Blades in some way. They both use the same style weapon, and have headpeices that have white ponytails coming off of them. The painting guardians also seem to be women, so yea. What do you guys think?

    One thing I would like to know is how dragons store or get weapons stuck in their tails. That would really give us some insight on the link between Priscilla, the Painting Guardians, and Ciaran because their weapons have very similar fighting styles.

    How are you certain painting guardians are men? their armor is very feminine.

    Either they're very flat-chested girls or really feminine guys.

    I always thought the PGs were men, maybe that cycle's mates to the Lord's Blade.
