oh gee let’s go look up some reference for cherno alpha’s feet they’re so cool
ah yes how neat i see the— wait
is thAT WHAT I THINK IT IS??//? ?? ?? ?
IM SO FUCKIG NDONE WITH EVERYTHING THEY DIDN’T NAME IT FROM CHERNIY (BLACK IN RUSSIAN) THEY DIDN’T NAME IT FROM CHERNOBYL NO SASHA AND ALEKSIS KAIDANOVSKY NAMED THEIR FUCKING ROBOT /AFTER THE RUSSIAN DEVIL HIMSELF/
he gave up EVERYTHING for the night mother,even the one thing he was good at, which was killing. and she still won’t speak to him and he just feels used and disgusting and worthless… but it’s not like he would ever say that. he tries so hard.
his faction of the dark brotherhood was his only family, and they were all killed. they knew everything about him, and he trusted them—something he has not been able to do since.he lost his whole family. and when he came to skyrim, every DB member was against him and shunned him
he spent upwards of three years locked in a crypt with a dead woman’s body. the night mother is the ONLY thing in his life that is constant and she won’t give him validation because she won’t speak
so don’t tell me you hate him because he’s “a stock character”, “comic relief” or “overdone” because that shit’s stupid and lazy
going to add to this, if that’s ok.
if you’re going to tell me that you hate cicero just because he is annoying, or he’s crazy, then don’t even talk to me about it. i’m pretty fucking sure the reason he’s in the mental state he is in now is because he’s spent a very long time with a dead body. if you read his diaries, you know that the cheydinhal sanctuary got FUCKED over. he was left with no where to go, other than the skyrim sanctuary. he hoped to find the listener (or even be the listener himself) to help get the dark brotherhood back on its feet. he only wanted the best for his family, the dark brotherhood. he feels like he had failed the night mother and sithis.
and don’t even get me started on how he attacked astrid. astrid did not respect the night mother, she thought she could do things her own way. but she was wrong. the dark brotherhood would have fallen if cicero had not gone to skyrim. astrid broke one of the 5 tennents, cicero did not. you are not allowed to talk poorly of the night mother, but it doesn’t say anything about attacking a fellow brother or sister. who’s in the wrong now? she had it coming anyways.
the dark brotherhood needs to always follow the old ways, and cicero was the only one upholding them. all the others who upheld them died. without cicero the dark brotherhood would be gone, there would be no more night mother, no more assassinations, nothing.
cicero gave up everything for the dark brotherhood, so before you tell me that you hate him, consider this. cicero was left alone, his real family and his brothers and sisters all dead. when he comes seeking refuge in skyrim they all hate him. he just wanted to do what was right, but everyone turns their backs on him, even the night mother who refused to speak. he was left in silence.
Imagine if Amnesia or Slender came with a heart rate monitor. Imagine every time something creepy happened it would get worse because your heart began to beat faster and the game recognized you were scared.
