Positively lacking in detail this statue is, l was very disappointed with it. You can tell the subject had wings and that is about all. No one would make a statue of the nephilim that looks like that.

Aussie, you truly Rock! I kneel before you!

So Bouchard must have been to Marco's Hideout in Venice and fancied a bit of
redecoration for his, how do the french say, Boite-de-nuit.....

Kurtis looks like Altair, lol!

First of all, thank you for all of the awsome concepts aussie. I've never seen alot of them before!

Well, I've actually never thought how much Natla looked as an Nephilim before I saw the pic with the sword on.
Im pretty sure you know what I mean. Her 'hair' is about the same and her eyes are red, are the biggest things I see... Well, also that they both have wings, though that guy on the dagger dosent seem to show em
Sorry for Natla's terrible quality.

Yeah.
I didn't remembered it right. But now as I see it it doesn't have much resemblence with the concept (except the shape).

This was also in the concept art, perhaps an early version of the Nephilim statue, holding a sword. We saw a similar very large statue in the Wrath of the Beast level. This statue bears some likeness to bahomet, looking into the possible connection with bahomet can lead to all sorts of theories.

The picture of the young man who is wearing the traditional Lux Veritatis garb is a mystery, l doubt it is Kurtis as he bears a message, who would Kurtis be taking a message to? Likely this is how the Lux Veritatis used to dress back when Eckhardt was first imprisoned.
Interesting Find!

I love myths connected to the Templars and the Holy Grail.
And yes, It opens a list of possibilities for AOD

We will have to wait and see where the Legend story line goes, but we already have a connection with a sword, Lancelot, the crusades and our Nephilim. Pity we will lose Kurtis and the Lux Veritatis connection, l thought there was great potential in that idea Core and Murti came up with, but l am not getting my hopes up Crystal Dynamics will use them.

A few area's that never made it into the game, or if they did we never saw them.

That's a really, darn shame, aussie! The Lux Veritatis is something so amazing. Kurtis, being the last warrior standing alive is something that I find to be awesome.

I won't get my hopes up too high. But, I really do wish they would continue. Don't care what company, really. I'm *that* desperate.

By the way, in the first pic, isn't that suppose to be a place where she hides instead of that train in Paris?

I have never seen a wreckers/junkyard ever mentioned in connection with Paris, and it was not mentioned in the text file. Considering the large number of buildings we had for Paris, likely it was meant for the German levels, but there is not way to be sure unless we get more information.

Question: Why the hell was so much cut out of AOD??
