because I’m bored and need to distract myself;
TIME TO FUCKING RAMBLE ABOUT WHY IN THE ACTUAL FUCK ALEXANDER HAS DANIEL PAINTING THE MAN WITH GLOWING ‘PAINT’ BEFORE CUTTING THEM.
BUT BEFORE WE GO ANYWHERE LEMME CLARIFY THAT THIS IS JUST A THEORY/MY OPINION ON THE SUBJECT.
So, at first this probably sounds like the dumbest thing ever. You’ve got candlelight down there already, the paint doesn’t have some magical effect on the prisoner that “wards” the Shadow away, so why the hell is it even needed?
The thing is, there is actually a pretty good reason for it. The Shadow was more than likely hunting Alexander for murdering so many humans and potentially causing an imbalance in the universe by him continuing to exist on Earth. Therefore; anytime a death was caused by Alexander himself it was only luring the Shadow closer. This can also be caused by Alexander manipulating someone else to do his work or becoming too involved in the death.
Daniel was specifically being coaxed into doing this ritual to “ward” the Shadow away when in reality if he could be mentally forced to willingly do this on his own then the Shadow could not hound Alexander for this particular death as it was not caused by him but by Daniel on his own free will.
Now that such is out of the way, for the first few deaths, it was likely that Alexander was quite involved.
Something we are aware of about the Shadow is that it can blow out torches and therefore it could blow out candlelight. Specific cuts need to be made into the body to give the most amount of vitae while keeping the prisoner alive long enough to extract the maximum amount. If the light was lost, the ritual would become futile.
Therefore, we have the glowing ‘paint’. The reason I am apprehensive to call it paint is because it is highly likely that either radium or phosphorus has been mixed in to give it the glowing green effect that is seen during the cutscene. Or it could just purely be one of those two chemicals, it is difficult to say.
But it has more of a purpose than “why is it glowing” as an added effect.
