BT writes: As we saw last time, Lost Odyssey is a game all about loss. This theme is expressed in simple tropes such as immortals suffering from amnesia, to the more complex, such as the lost memories that characters like Kaim suffer from. Kaim also becomes emblematic of this theme as he goes on a quest to regain his losses, despite how apathetic he thinks he feels.
But to really understand the motivations behind Kaim, it is important to look at his wife, Sarah Sisulart, and his two grandchildren, Mack and Cooke. Kaim, of course, is the main character of the game, but what drives him forward is not just a sense of justice and his sub-conscious desire to find meaning in his life, but also his connections to his family, no matter how much he struggles to remember them.
