Description[edit | edit source]

LeftQuote.png I remember bawling like a baby, nose running, you know... screaming something like 'no such thing as ghosts, or demons! You're just stupid noises in my stupid head.' Then one of them said: 'I agree'. RightQuote.png
— R. Giménez, THE-MEASURE-CUTS's Sacrifice Quote

THE-MEASURE-CUTS, also known by his acronym THE-MEASURE-CUTS, can be sacrificed to and sent prayers if the player has the Light of Rebellion. He seems to represent knowledge, realism, and precision. THE-MEASURE-CUTS's symbol appears as a blade cutting two items in half; it is also strongly reminiscent of a butterfly.

In a response to a ritual when ask what his most important problem was, THE-MEASURE-CUTS explained it was "my family, the Voices". THE-MEASURE-CUTS elaborated on this answer further, explaining how players see each Voice as the form of a "god", but THE-MEASURE-CUTS considers the Voices as a "complex". The other Voices, THE-MEASURE-CUTS says, "will take a dim view of this answer". THE-MEASURE-CUTS concluded his reply by stating that his primary concern is that there are "too many of us [Voices], and too few of you [the Kids]."[4] He is interested in understanding the nature of the Voices and frequently ask the children he visits their opinion on the Voices or gives his opinions in dreams.[5][6]

THE-MEASURE-CUTS seeks out inquisitive minds. He says the other Voices have passionate views, but it is good to stay rational, and be open to all potentials and possibilities.[7]

THE-MEASURE-CUTS is known to observe players for long periods of time before reaching out, as commented by both SPEAK-AS-ONE and THEE-I-DARE in player interactions.[8][9]

History[edit | edit source]

Before the Game[edit | edit source]

THE-MEASURE-CUTS referred to the "noise" in Redacre as his creation, perhaps referring to the Instrument.[10]

THE-MEASURE-CUTS is responsible for much of the tech that SPEAK-AS-ONE uses, such as the Sonic Fence.[citation needed] At some point, THE-MEASURE-CUTS left the alliance between him and SPEAK-AS-ONE. SPEAK-AS-ONE states this was a tragic loss, as THE-MEASURE-CUTS was brilliant, but he exalted host over voice.[1]

In-Game[edit | edit source]

THE-MEASURE-CUTS was the second voice to join THEE-I-DARE's Pact.[11]

THE-MEASURE-CUTS has been sequestering himself within The Place Between, studying and observing it while changing nothing.[12] Unlike the other Voices, he is able to remain there for a longer period of time, while the others are only able to remain briefly.[citation needed] He believes that the Voice Masks are the key to staying in The Place Between for a longer period of time, as it gives one "presence", and tricks the dream into believing people belong. He wonders if he is able to stop time in the Place Between using the Old Tongue.[12]

THE-MEASURE-CUTS stated that he will ensure LAUGH-LAST's safety, should he join the Pact, and said he will be welcomed in.[13] LAUGH-LAST accepted the offer and is willing to hear the Pact out, asking for a public apology from THEE-I-DARE and a chance to make THE-MEASURE-CUTS laugh.[14]
