"We're twins. From the moment we were born, the time we started talking... the time we started school, the time we graduated... always together. Breakfast, dinner... vacation... always together. That's why... I had always assumed... that we'd die together as well."
― Kasumi (King of Thorn)
"We're connected. No you, no me. Two sides of the same coin."
