Zemuria is the ship on the spiritual sea and it’s up to Captain Carnelia and her trusty crew of hardened seamen to keep it from sinking – Hellseye47
This is the Beginning of the End…
It’s that time again, predictions for the next Kiseki game (and beyond) as we’re entering the final countdown to release.Continue reading Yotaka’s hajimari no kiseki predictions
Today’s theory delves into the history of Erebonia as well as real world occult symbolism which I attempt to connect with the lore dumps in Cold Steel 4. All of this to take another potshot at the Holy Grail of Kiseki Crack: the identity of the Grandmaster.
Four lower elements and four kingdoms represented by four beasts. In today’s theory, I link the Holy Beasts and the societies they watch over to visions of the Hebrew Prophet Daniel.
Throughout the games, there have repeatedly been various indications and eventually, undoubtable proof that the Septian Church has been around since long before it’s supposed first appearance at the end of the Dark Ages. This theory shows the various evidence for such and then speculates the about the event which caused the disappearance and possibly almost destroyed the Septian Church.
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.
Note: This theory is based on a conversation I had with Latte in the Falcom Discord server and the idea that the four lower elements are based on tarot alchemy is his.
1200 years ago a single event shook all of Zemuria leading to the loss of the Goddess’s Treasures and a collapse of their advanced civilizations. In all known cases, immediately after the Great Collapse, the Tribes lost control their respective Sept-Terrion. Here, I show the connection between Tarot Alchemy and Erebonia’s Treasures and then use that connection to argue why they lost control of them, which I then use to make a prediction on how the remaining tribes of the lower elements lost control of theirs.

In the wake of Sen no Kiseki IV’s shocking revelation about the objectives of Ouroboros, Shirofan crafts a new theory regarding the Orpheus Final Plan, connecting the imagery of the Society’s Grandmaster to the Gate of Gehenna.
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.
