When the parents attempted to take the finished weapon, now powered by the soul of their tormented daughter, it burned them. They were plunged into nightmares too horrible to describe before finally descending into madness and death.
The visions are getting worse as various characters appear throughout the review to taunt Linkara and call him a murderer. A siren sounds again, but instead of fog, the apartment is bathed in red light, indicating that Linkara is now in the Otherworld. He’s attacked by a demon nurse, but he makes quick work of her. Suddenly the Magic Gun starts burning his hand.
“What’s wrong with my Magic Gun!?”
“The problem,” a deadly serious 90s Kid says, “is that it exists at all, you sick freak.”
Falling to his knees, Linkara finds a very old book and starts paging through it.
beneath the seas besides the flame
off the coast where the lost beast came
to bring the world misery and shame
a piece of the world is missing
She didn’t get to heaven. Not even close.
i didn’t get to heaven, it hurts every time i don’t go to heaven
they didn’t love me
He looks up to find a girl wrapped in rope and bloody bandages, aka the Dolorem. Linkara puts two and two together: this is the girl who was sacrificed by her parents to create a powerful weapon…Linkara’s Magic Gun. He tries to apologize, but the Dolorem barrages him with psychic attacks, calling him “Daddy.” He begins to believe he is indeed the girl’s father and, horrified and wracked with guilt, he puts the gun to his head and pulls the trigger.
Linkara is bathed with white light and hears a small voice: “No! Partner. Friend.”
His mind clear, Linkara taunts the Dolorem, explaining that he isn’t a Silent Hill protagonist and can’t be defeated with angst and self doubt. He’s realized that the Dolorem is a demon made up of all the girl’s hate and misery that came from her parents’ torment. But the girl got revenge on her parents, and bears no ill will against Linkara. In fact, she considers them partners. So she doesn’t need the Dolorem anymore. The Dolorem sics the demon nurse on Linkara, but he releases Pyramid Head from his Pokeball, and he cleaves the nurse in two. Linkara fires on the Dolorem, destroying her for good. Almost immediately, he hears the strange, synthesized cry again.
Later, Linkara tells Iron Liz about the affair. He hopes that the little girl, whoever she was, is at peace now, and explains the old book remained after the Otherworld faded away. He also says Pollo scanned the area and found a familiar energy trace and a Shade dagger, confirming that Vyce was behind it all.
On Lord Vyce’s ship, Mechakara is furious that his plan to drive Linkara mad failed, but insists that he can still be broken psychologically if they try again. Vyce disagrees, and tells Mechakara he will use brute force to beat Linkara. He’s even found someone who can give Mechakara the proper upgrades: Doctor Linksano.
