9. We se a beautiful young or middle-aged man looks into a mirror. This man looks very much like the young and beautiful man in flashback 6. Suddenly he turns into undead state and the mirror is broken.
Historical: This seems to be a historical event, since we know that the nameless one must have entered the undead state at some point in time i.e. when the game starts he is in undead state.
Metaphorical: It could however also be a picture of how the nameless one thought that immortality would help him accomplish his goal of correcting his past crime, but instead it turned him into an even worse monster. Or is it a metaphor for his process of becoming immortal i.e. his mortality leaving him?
10. We see Deionarra as a ghost float away.
Historical: This seems likely to be historical, since Deionarra watches over the nameless one whenever possible.
Metaphorical: It could also be a picture of how she cannot stay long before she has to return to the negative material plane, where the practical incarnation left her.
