I'm not sure, but they don't even seem to know they're sick. When I asked guts for help, she denied that she had a worm. In a sense, they are all pawns of Abslute, this is a stupid position, and I don't like it.
True ... but the fact they dont know dont change anything about having that sicness, nor that is not harming them in any way. O_o Being pawn of the Absolute is certainly kinda bad position ... but also one that canot happen to you, since unlike the others, you know what happened.
