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 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.

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.

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.

The following theory is based on post 5chan post. And it is rock solid.

After being devastated upon the ending of Sen no Kiseki III, I had to stop and take a step back to disengage and get myself together again. Somehow, it seems to help to look at things with a bigger scope than I would have as disaster was happening one after another.
In the process, I came across something that has been around for quite awhile in the series- a pattern that’s been seeded since First Chapter came out.
This theory will cross over much of the entire series- as a result, there will be tags across all the games.

Replaying through the PC port of Sen no Kiseki, i’ve found myself giving more attention to events that had little-to-no follow-through, or events that can be seen as being more than meets the eye. One such instance occurs in Chapter 3, when the members of Class VII participate in a field study in the Nord Highlands.
I think events there were more than just a simple plan to make two countries get at each other’s throats; I think the events in Nord were meant to birth a new Dominion. Continue reading [Submitted Theory] War in Nord and a New Dominion
This started from something I was 100% convinced to be complete lunacy. It was to the point that I wasn’t entirely willing to even bring it up to anyone because of how ridiculous it sounded. However, I eventually talked it out with Guan, and in our attempts to break the theory, we kept finding more things to even add to it.
It was frustrating!
However, at this point, with everything else in mind, I feel that I can put this theory out, and state that Falcom has been hiding something big under our noses this whole time.
There are, of course, endgame spoilers for the entire Crossbell duology in this theory. Be warned! (There is also a Cold Steel 2 spoiler in here, because it involves a topic that’s difficult to talk about without referencing others related to the topic.)
