Elden Ring player notices intriguing detail about Godfrey boss fight

An Elden Ring player has noticed an intriguing detail about the Godfrey the Grafted boss fight later in the game.

Godfrey the Grafted is more than just a powerful boss that likes to collect limbs of the Tarnished. Godfrey was once a hero, but after a fall from grace, he was exiled from the Lands Between and became the very first Tarnished.

Could this be true?

During the initial cutscene before the player and Godfrey have fisticuffs, Reddit user M24Spirit noticed that the Guidance of Grace is pointing towards the player and not Godfrey. Meaning that the player could in fact be Godfrey’s boss.
