Origin Edit

Part of its origin is currently unknown, but in its entries it is mentioned that this Abnormality came to the facility to 'free' the employees, to return them to their home after they die. However, due to them being bound to the company and only able to return when they are 'discarded', the objective was difficult to achieve. The Abnormality was then captured by the corporation.

Story Edit

FuneraloftheDeadButterfliesPortrait

Funeral of the Dead Butterflies' encyclopedia portrait

  • "What happens when people die?
    What happened to those who worked here?"
  • "- They must returned to their home, where family and warmness await.
    But everyone knows that the employees can’t leave the company unless they retire.
    - Then they must have "retired" and returned to their homes, having earned what they wanted and full of hope."
  • "We are feathers of the Wing. But retiring isn't as easy as it sounds. Just like how feathers do not fall out on their own free will.
    - Then where did the retired employees go?
    They are bound to the company the moment they enter. They cannot leave even if they retire.
    -Long ago, in some world, people believed that they become beautiful beings with small wings when they die. What nonsense.
    If we have wings, can we leave here? Do we get wings after we retire?"
  • "The mourner with the colossal baggage on his back is said to have come here to be the savior of all.
    But now he is trapped like everyone else, roaming the company with only the memory of empty faith.
    The baggage he carries is a coffin. A large coffin to pay tribute to the employees who have nowhere else to go. But it is too small to comfort those innocent sacrifices.
    Inside it are butterflies waiting for the time to sleep. Until then, they flutter their wings uselessly.
    Butterflies are supposed to pollinate flowers, but not a single flower blooms in this place.
    They have no choice but to wait. After all, there must be an end to the world."
