Part two of my theories. The other one was my main ideas, whereas these ones are a bit shorter.
In this theory, Latte argues that Swin, Nadia and potentially others are literally the fictional characters from the pages of III & IX brought to life.
In a previous theory, I outlined how the 4 lower elements corresponded to the four aspects of tarot alchemy, which were: Fire to soul and spirit, Earth to physical bodies, Water to emotion and the heart, and Wind to the Mind and thought. One little hole in that theory was always how the higher elements (Space, Mirage and Time) fit into that paradigm. I originally looked at solving this problem through looking at older Western cosmology, with the four lower elements representing the terrestrial, sublunary spheres whereas the three higher elements belonged to the celestial, translunar spheres. Whilst I still believe there is a strong likelihood that this is the case, this time I would like to suggest an alternative paradigm which incorporates all seven in a slightly different way.
With four of the seven Sept-Terrion revealed, some patterns have started to emerge and I thought I would take a crack at determining each of the seven’s roles and how they differ to one another from an elemental perspective. This will also be a summary of what we can learn from the existing Sept-Terrion and how we can use them to work out the function and basis for the remaining three. Furthermore, we are told that each of the seven tribes were gifted by Aidos based on the aspects of each treasure that best fit their entire civilization, and I wanted to have a crack at working out what each them did and the philosophies that drove those civilizations.
