The journal of a folk scholar. It is about the twin maidens of Minakami Village
The Twin Maidens
Twin girls are offered as sacrifices during the Crimson Sacrifice Festival.
Twin boys are also used on occasion, in which case they are known as twin wardens.
It would appear that, according to the local belief system, twins were all originally one person, split into two at birth.
It seems the Crimson Sacrifice is based on the belief that: 'Maidens are one being separated into two. When they are rejoined together, they are granted the power of a god'.
An ancient text goes on to note that: 'the eldest sister must ** the younger, and cast her into the *'.
The ** must refer to something too terrible to mention directly.
And yet the word 'Sacrificed' leaves little to the imagination...
