On the battlefield, there are times I'm overwhelmed with fear. It is in those moments that I am most hellbent on taking down my foes. And that's when I feel myself being swallowed... being consumed by the Slaugh.
This is why in battle, I must remember my principles, and have unwavering trust in my allies.
But how do I gain trust? How does anyone build that kind of relationship where you can turn your back on someone, knowing you won't be harmed?
A good relationship starts with getting to know each other. What are the person's disposition and values? What do they like and dislike? If you disagree on something, does it open your mind a little as you consider the other person's perspective?
Considering how (Character Name) first awakened the power of Bachram... it seems to help if one has a strong desire to protect someone else.
Is it really a sentimentalist notion that love and social affection is our greatest strength? I think that it is not mere sentiment... for social connections, and their complexity, is part of what caused us to develop such intelligent, higher-functioning brains. And from there, all the world was conquered.
Of course, higher emotional functioning leads to more darkness in the soul, too. It leads to self-awareness of one's flaws, an awareness of one's dark willingness to hurt other people for selfish desires. But if that darkness, or Dorcha, could be condensed by the introduction of good thoughts...
Bachram increases your Dorcha supply, because a positive mindset allows you to better harness your darker thoughts.
Normally you must swing the Chain Blade to replenish your Dorcha, but with Bachram it'll increase even while you are standing still.
With a constant flow of Dorcha, think of the possibilities!
I can think of some things that would surely make Bachram more powerful... A complete understanding of oneself. Affection for not only one's comrades, but for strangers. The ability to read the flow of Dorcha.
Someday... if I regain my strength... could I be with them again?
I won't give up. I'll keep searching. And what I need to do now is go to Father...
