This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
The Entity is not as bad as it seems.
The Entity. Psychotic Cosmic Horror hell-bent on twisting all sentient life to its will? Or Starfish Alien unknowingly mind raping the poor locals, unable to even understand what effect it's having on the Puny Earthlings? Or worse, unfortunate space traveler desperate to survive after crashing on a strange planet, willing to do anything to survive and possibly repair its spacecraft? Wait, it gets worse. The game doesn't explain in too much detail what resulted in The Entity crash-landing on the planet...intentional alien invasion, or pure mistake? And what if The Entity was fleeing from others of its kind, wanted for the destruction of other planets? Or even worse, fleeing from something even worse? Gives a few good ideas for Strife 2, doesn't it?
  • That idea is utterly insane, and yet oddly awesome.
    • Jossed. It even claims it's there to consume humanity. It causes evil where it goes and feeds off that evil until the race is destroyed, then repeats for the next planet.
      • Does it? Ending narrations claim this, but that's from a perspective of one of the humans getting screwed over. Who knows what alien motivations the Entity has?
