Continuing from my last theory, “Defective Gods”, this time I look at the abstract nature of the higher elements. Previously I argued that the lower elements correlate to the metaphysical components of man. Here, I build on that to argue that the higher elements should correspond to “beyond man”, namely God, which I then use to define the would-be Sept-Terrion of Time, the Unbound.

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.

In my last theory, The Eyes of Ra, I focused mostly on connecting the Arc en Ciel play from Zero no Kiseki to the potential Sept-Terrion(s) of Calvard, and at the end, I briefly brought up that Calvard comes from the latin calvor meaning “to deceive” making Calvard the “Land of Lies”. Hell, even the emblem, a leaf blocking the sun, could be a metaphor for obscuring the truth. This theory reviews the connection between the name of each country and the themes of the stories told in them while making a set of predictions for the Calvard arc based on this link.

Calvard and the East have been synonyms since the series’s inception. This connection was first evoked by Zin and Kilika’s attires and fighting techniques, then further bolstered by Crossbell City’s East Street. When discussing Calvard, we always tend to look at the Far East. Aren’t we, as Hellseye47 suggests in the following theory, overlooking another region named the Middle East? Come on, we’re going to Egypt.

Sen no Kiseki IV‘s collectable book series is called Three and Nine. It’s partially foreshadowing and world-building Calvard, it’s also partially filling in the blanks on aspects the main game couldn’t address. I tweeted that I found it the most fascinating book since Carnelia and here is why: I think it details the Fourth Anguis.

As per tradition, we’re all dropping in our predictions, our wishes, etc etc for what will come about with the undoubtedly epic ending to the long-running Erebonia arc.
Remember, these are, of course, going to be delving into not only Sen III spoilers, but probably series spoilers due to the nature of this particular game.

This is something that has been bugging me for awhile now, and due to my very limited knowledge of Japanese (specifically writing, I can understand a decent amount verbally)…I never actually found out if the game explained this one scene or not;
Hello! This is an interesting question that was submitted, especially because while discussing stuff on this exactly with Yotaka, I had logged into the site and found it. Let me see what I can come up with from it.

Over the course of the series, we’ve seen- even to the ones that have good qualities without a doubt- that the Dominion are not very likely to tell the whole truth in many situations.
So when we’re given information from one that seems to have issues with it, why do we accept it without question?

Over the course of the Kiseki series, one mystery that many people have attempted to solve – and what might well be the most important puzzle in the entire series – is the question of who the Grandmaster of Ouroboros really is. Based on the various clues scattered throughout the lore, I have my own take on who this enigmatic figure might be.
