I was wondering why Sir Radzig commissioned the sword, to begin with. He lets Henry try to hit the stick at the beginning of the game and then later on in the game Henry mentions he has still not got Sir Radzig’s sword back and Radzig answers " It’s not mine, it’s yours".
Did Sir Radzig commission the sword for Henry all along? He said at the beginning of the game that he wanted Henry to bring it to him. The inscription on the sword said something about family.
I wonder if he spent his time watching Henry grow up, wanting to be his father figure and this was perhaps a gift for him. There was that scene when they were sharing a horse, “just like I had imagined it, teaching my boy to ride”. It seems he really cares for Henry and he might have cared for his mother too.
