Small gift from Deogracias, nailed into the effigy of the Twisted under the guard of your sword. The thorns arised from the Miracle feed on sin and guilt, growing with the burden that its bearer carries.
The Thorn has different stages it can evolve to. To evolve it, the Penitent One needs to break the Statues of Confessors, then enter the portal that appears in their places with the Weight of True Guilt equipped and defeat the five waves of enemies.
Its stages are:
- Budding Sprout
- Grown Sprout
- Thorny Briar
- Bloodstained Briar
- Crimson Briar
- Vine Braided in Blood
- Cvstodia of Sin
Having its final evolved version, the Cvstodia of Sin, unlocks the true ending.
"Brother Abbot, you know that I have been a scribe in this abbey since I was but a wee child. I have written about our church, our saints and our Miracle of the Greatest Pain. I must inform you that I have made the decision to leave, although I intend to continue writing. In these walls I cannot be a true witness of the works of the Miracle. I need to appreciate with my own eyes your holy works. I will be a teller of the Miracle wherever it takes me, rain or shine, or scorching sand under my bare feet."
