‘Sword’ is an unnamed character in Slipdrift that proves to be a key ally to ‘Yourself‘ during their escape. The first time they encounter each other is actually the end of a round where the rifles have been shut off. Not knowing this, and having combat instincts both of them charge at the other to attempt to melee and bludgeon the other.
During the middle part of the story, ‘Yourself’ and ‘Sword’ both talk to each other through the wall due to the intervention of ‘Unknown‘. Only later do they realize their ally was someone they tried to fight earlier. Together they come up with a desperate plan to escape from the bloody game.
