: Oh yeah, I forgot those. I believe the first manual story was in 2nd person,
: so that technically doesn't count, but in M2's story we get a first-person
: narrative. But is that really him talking, or an internal monologue? Just
: because he's mute doesn't mean he doesn't think.

That's true, though Durandal does respond to him in the first one, sort of. 2 is more just a monologue as you say.

: And the third. The percieved rejection by Ness snowballs into literal
: world-ending disaster (do you share my theory that the 'dragon' is the
: w'rkncacncter?). But on the muteness, allow me to point to: - The coffee
: and tea breaks
: - Lumine Hall
: - Magicant

: Another mute character, but we get to read his internal monologues sometimes
: =)
Yes indeed. Not to mention in Mother 3 the gag of characters only becoming mute when you play as them becomes more clear, particularly with Lucas, Duster and Flint, and Ninten even speaks at the very end of Mother 1 once he lies down to bed before the credits roll.

The dragon may well be a dreaming God too, but a rare benign one, since he spares everyone after Lucas is the one who wakes him despite the world ending. This isn't the first time Marathon seems to have inspired Japanese games.
