Official Lyrics:
hana wa shousoku
imi hitohira wo
sadameshi ya ware iku wo tachihirugaeshite
sa iza
Westward lies bleed t'ward the east
Wayward daughter, step into the night
Restless eyes, blind to the beast
Barren waters yield unto the tide
yorube no tsuki wa
guren ni saete
nokoseshi wa aragai no nagori nomi naredo
sa iza
And the translated version:
Flower waiting to be plucked
Each petal a promise torn
Shorn one by one and cast to the winds, I gave unto them my all...all...
No...No more!
Westward lies bleed t'ward the east
Wayward daughter, step into the night
Restless eyes, blind to the beast
Barren waters yield unto the tide
Sanctuary of the moon
Tainted by the crimson light
Naught save the night shall know our sorrow, we give unto it our all...all...
No...No more!

    Id like to think the true reason she became such a cold hearted monster is when she saw a broken doman, her heart skipped a beat, it was because subconsciously she was picturing Asahi. which is why when she finally murders his ass she feels satiated and fulfilled.

    Loved her from the start. Not in the stupid fetishistic way weebs think about when they see a character like her, but because her story arc was immediately apparent from her introduction. No one despises her own people so much without a reason, and it was clear her backstory would involve a lot of trauma and abuse. I didn't mourn Tsuyu, that child had died decades ago murdered by her adoptive family, the corpse raped by the good people of Doma, and reanimated by the promises of the Empire. I mourned Yotsuyu, the woman. With all her impotent hate, all her violent lashing out to a world she was terrified of, and all her desperate bids for power to feel control of a life she never got to live. I mourn the monster that could only be born from an innocent heart starved of love and terribly defiled and scorned.

  28. The Runaway Script

    The Runaway Script26 日 前

    I personally saw Yotsuyu, Lyse, and Fordola as being foils for each other. Each were born as girls in a country either already occupied by Garlean forces or just about to be occupied. All three ended up in leading roles that were directly related to their desires. Lyse ended up the most well-adjusted out of the three because she was raised by her sister in a safer environment than Ala Mhigo. After her sister died, Papalymo was willing to step in and act as her mentor/older sibling. She was able to grow up surrounded by people who genuinely cared about her. Fordola lost her father to the mob of Ala Mhigans who stoned him to death. She lost her mother by alienating her by her actions. However, Fordola had 3 friends who shared her ideal and passion. The 4 of them joined the army and were able to get through the pain and humiliation thrown at them by the Garleans and Ala Mhigans alike. Yotsuyu had no one and so responded with the same hatred she had been dealt.

    I was crying while waiting for this MSQ. I knew what I had to do. I knew her memory had come back and there was no way for me to stop it. I wanted to but it was a series of unfortunate events that drived her motives. I knew she deserved it but, she had a second life she had a chance but it was ripped away from her.

    actually... yeah, on retrospect Yotsuyu's story is a fucked up inversion of the Bamboo Cutter's Tale where Kaguya can't return home since everywhere is hell for her. I guess they felt it was too on the nose to literally name the primal that?

    I never usually feel bad when the whole 'redeemed vilian' dies, but Yotsuyu was different. Her life was truly awful and a real tragedy, and just when you thought maybe she could finally live a normal life, her family comes to torment her one last time. It's sort of bittersweet; she was truly awful, yet seeing her with Gosetsu made you wish that she could finally live in peace.

    Debating myself on killing Tsuyu in this fight. Like, killing her is an act of mercy yet at the same time I wanted her to have kinder fate with Gosetsu. Even as player I wonder if the people there actually worth saving and maybe they do deserve Yotsuyu's torture.... although I know that isn't the correct answer either. If Tsuyu survived, I can't imagine what kind of punishment she would get for being a Witch of Doma.... Guess I need to get working and put her under the sword and let her get the kill for Asahi. Rest in peace Tsuyu, hope you have better life next time.

    It's used as the theme for Doma in FF14, which IIRC is also the Castle Cyan rules in FF6. There's a lot of tie-ins and call backs in this game. Unfortunately lacking in Cyan himself, but we do get Hien and he's pretty cool.
