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.

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.

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.

With the first cold steel game releasing on PS4, and with II&III following later this year in English I thought I’d share my little theory before I find some side dialogue in the last two Erebonia games when they come out in English that’ll completely destroy it. I’ve never actually written a full theory before so bear with me. This theory involves Rean’s memories before he was adopted along with the possibility of them being relevant in the future, with spoilers from all four Erebonia games.

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.

Baidu user 白龙圣骑士SK wrote a compelling theory on the lineage of Rean Schwarzer. It’s a schoolbook example of a theory, thought-provoking and built on in-game evidence.

Dreichels really held quite the legacy, didn’t he? But it appears that yet another character is strangely similar to him. And not just that – we have some symbolism to sprinkle in here too.
