Alright, so if Ascended are "reborn" being either through some godlike/spiritual figure or a toaster oven-like incubation machine of some sort, it would mean they would have no need for an umbilical cord, and thus wouldn't have a bellybutton, right? So if this is the case why do they have them then? Was the vigil just like "hey they totally had a hole thingy here before, they need that for stuff, let's put it back" type of thing or what?
And that leads us to the Defiant conundrum... they used technology to bring their champions back, so instead of a bellybutton don't you think they'd deserve some sort of awesome magi-tech usb dongle in the front that screams, "sup bro i'm ascended, plug me right in and I'll do a little dance"? (i'm lookin' at you, Bahmi's)
But seriously, is there any lore out there reflecting this hard hitting question, or perhaps a certain Krunkatron would be able to enlighten us on this and any other Ascended bellybutton/dongle related questions? Like what about Crucia in her human aspect? Bellybutton ---- seriously? I don't think a dragon needs one of those either... Thank you
