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.

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.

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.

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.

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.)

He had connections to Ouroboros and possibly started the Hundred Days War by getting jaegers to attack and destroy Hamel to try to annex Liberl? Along with trying to show the empire’s might.
