You’ve gone away, but you didn’t even leave behind a keepsake to remember you by. That’s what I didn’t like about you. 

…You’re right. If you had left something behind, it would have likely kept me from moving on. You must have seen that weakness in me. 

Thank you, Gin. That’s what I… loved about you.

aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty, desire, and pleasure, whose radiant smile and laughter were praised by poets.

I think Gin represents ‘despair’ more than any other captain in the past… The mood changes whenever Gin appears. It becomes precarious.
