This question was submitted by andi and touches on a favorite topic of mine, the way that Falcom weaves real-world references into the series. The question and response are below the cut.
Summary: Some MUSSEings about two characters surrounding the ASHen Chevalier, and who they could really be.
I’m marking this theory as partially proven because the Fire Beast was at least half right. -Hellseye47
My previous post was terribly outdated, so I decided to just scrap it and start my predictions from scratch, this time with pictures!
Bells in Zemuria do a lot of weird things, perhaps there are some patterns they all have in common…
This is a collaboration theory with Knightmeteor from the Falcom Discord. We will be focusing mostly on late Sen 2 and Sen 3 information, mostly pertaining to Rean and Crow.
Resurrection has been a hypothetical possibility in the Kiseki series since The 3rd. Now, that possibility seems more likely than ever. But what’s the secret behind it?
Of the protagonists we’ve had the honour to play with so far, Rean is arguably the most enigmatic one of the bunch. Estelle believes in ul-tra-vi-o-lence and Lloyd in the system of justice. Kevin was a harder nut to crack, but fortunately The 3rd was dedicated to his case. That leaves us with Rean Schwarzer. Call him the awkwardly silent protagonist, harem master or Gary Stu all you want, it is hard to deny that his background is riddled with mysteries.
In which I analyze the Enforcers and their associated symbolism, at great length. You might want to be sitting down for this one.
This isn’t my observation, but something spotted by Laxxus 07 on youtube, regarding an interesting aspect to Michael in Sen no Kiseki III’s information.
This observation lies mostly in Trails of Cold Steel and Trails of Cold Steel II, but it does gain a tag for Trails in the Sky FC due to a particular novel series in the game.
