This has probably been brought up by someone before, but I just can't help but wonder - who were their parents? The whole backstory is a bit "forget about it" on the matter. We know that Riggnarok started the first human rebellion against the demons, he taught people to make clothes, weapons, etc. He had that sword. Then, once the Sea of Black Tears was open, all humans, save for him, got seduced, and drank from it, thus the rebellion ended. So Riggnarok pretended to be a slave to get close to, and to murder Emperor (Empress?) Succoria, when she traveled to the future, but instead, the got involved with each-other, and made Eddy. Ok. Then we learn that Ophelia's parents gave Riggnarok's sword to Lars saying that it belonged to him - where did they get it? Why him? How did they even give it to him if they were supposed to be black-tear zombies? At the same time, Lita seems highly distrustful only of Ophelia, because her parents were tear-drinkers, and yet, none of the other human characters get the same treatment from her, not even she and Lars. But we already know that of all the humans in the first rebellion, only Riggnarok resisted the call of the Sea of Black Tears, so either Riggnarok was her and Lars' father also, or Riggnarok wasn't the only one to resist the Sea, but the only one to survive the human civil war. Also, if the Sea somehow released the original Black Tear rebels (Why? How?), how did they manage to keep Riggnarok's sword to give to Lars, if they were enslaved by the demons?

Here is some ideas for sequal.
IronHead finding the Temple Highway restored sends Eddie and Ophelia to investigate. When the get to the top of the mountain of bones to the temple of ormagoden they are attacked by a man-like creature with chrome skin and four arms weilding a claymore and a dual-neck guitar. the creature turns out to be the son of ormagoden. Needless to say he's a little pissed off that eddie broke his father's temple.
I figure this part could work like the tutorial of the first game. where you have to fight him until he stops you with a cutsene. in which he finds something familiar and that Eddie has proven himself a honorable warrior so he gives his name Axel oresong and they become allys.
New Avatar- can be played in multiplayer.
Axel Oresong: The son of Ormagoden was created when Ormagoden's Death Flame mingled with Aetulia's Voice giving birth to a demigod of most righteous metal. He was raised by his mother until her Despair lead to her death. Then he was taken in by the Titans. They taught him many things how to survive, how to fignt, and most importanly how to play Metal. So that when he reached manhood he forged twin claymores from his father's metal and carved a guitar from a branch of Madronal his mother's tree. He named his swords Ormagoden's Fangs and dual-neck guitar Aetulia's Song. When the Titans left for a higher plane they left their servants the demons in his care but he too felt abadonded just as much as his charges and they bonded in their greif. As time Passed they devised ways to find the Titans creating Ormagoden's crest. When the Demons found a single toenail of a Titan, Axel used the last of his power to recreate them. Instead they made Men and Axel fell into a thousand year sleep while the demons fell into a terrible rage at the men they made. when the men escaped their talons the demons formed the Tainted Coil and the most powerful of them became the emperor. When the new emperor turnded his eye apone the sleeping demi-god. The Emperor knew that he would be a usefull ally when he awoke. So the Emperor sent his most trusted subjects to carry Axel up the death pile of their anceint ansestors to his father's temple. Where they placed him on his father's stone back and wainted there till he awoke. Centures latter Axel twitched once in his sleep when a newly crowned Emperor came to the Temple to see the dreaming legend. Decades latter Axel Stired in sleep when the Temple filled with chants, screams, Roars, and Moans. Years latter Axel slowly grow alert when earth shattering music turned the Temples walls to ruins. A year latter when he was fully awake he found the temple ransacked and the sacred road in ruin. possible titles- Earth Searer, Titan Brother, Son of Ormagoden.
