[The first part of this article is spoiler-free, but the second half revolves exclusively around spoilers for the end of the prologue. This transition from no spoilers to spoilers will be clearly marked. If you ever plan to play Seafall in the future, do yourself a favour and do not spoil yourself. Even if you’re not the kind of person who generally cares about spoilers, trust me: this experience is better unspoiled.]
