    Sen's Statues Empty Sen's Statues

    Post by Buggy Virus Mon Aug 27, 2012 5:20 pm

    Pretty simple theory.

    The statues in Sen's always bothered me, but thinking about who might have made them and who might have built sens along with the amount of titanite demons there were made me realize something. No where else do we see so many titanite demons, and we know demon titanite is linked to the blacksmith Deity.

    What is the statues were going to be an autonomous army built by the blacksmith deity, with a little demon titanite in each of them to breath life into them. Then the blacksmith deity "passed" leaving the army unfinished and scattering the demon titanite into the moat below.

    Interesting theory.

    What do you think that he would have used this army for?

    I'd actually think more in regards to Stone Knights.

    I always thought that they were actual knights in armor.

    What I mean is, they are laying on the ground like that. A living being would not be like that. They would be standing, sitting, or leaning on something. Not because, it's less work to stand. But because then they can move after. Reasonably nothing would be strong enough in that armor to move due to the thickness of it. Also if you look closely at their eyes you'd see there is nothing inside the helm. While on the player you can see their face through it.

    That's true.
    you mean that they're machines and you "activate" them?

    I know that. I just hoped for their power source to be something else than "magic" silly

    Perhaps with their proximity to Oolacile, that was the idea.

    I think "magic" is a bit overused in many stories. So i hoped for something more tangible.

    This is a really cool theory. Would this mean the blacksmith deity was Sen, then?

    Yeah, that's an old theory of Acidic's that a lot of people forget about.

    The problem I see with this, is they have no legs. They simply have the cloak dress thing that takes u their lower half. Unless they grow wheels I dont see them moving.

    Perhaps they were never completed, but yeah that does put a wedge in the idea.

    Well I think completing them was low on their priorities considering the number that exist. But the detail on the cloak says to me they were finished as they are.

    Well, being that the titanite demons grew out of basic slabs, perhaps adding a little titanite to the statues would clear up the details. Imagine one coming to life and the lower cloak part crumbling away bit by bit as legs shook off the shards.

    And like some people say, maybe they were just unfinished.

    I think it's Vamos.

    And with the stone giants they are obviously stone armor that is animated. I used to personally think that they were cursed long dead knights who only the armor remained of. But Oolacile magic makes more sense, especially with the DLC.
