Oh, I never got to read the manual. BUT, I think his real name is mentioned in the ending.Yah, I was quoting the trope "all there in the manual" (i.e. kind of hidden or not even said in the actual game but mentioned in side/external material). Don't remember where exactly it's said, in the actual manual or else, could be in the ending.
I remember BR1 being the game that made me chose buying a PSX instead of a Saturn back then.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
