Let's Play Xenogears, Part 5

The plan to rescue Margie is underway.  And somewhat botched by my poor sense of direction.

Questions so far:

  • Who is Wiseman, and how does he know Fei?
  • Ramsus seems to recognize Fei's fighting style, as well as the red-haired man. What is their relationship?

Various factoids and symbolism

  • A character very similar in appearance to Vanderkaum appears in Xenosaga, even having an almost identical name (Vanderkam).
  • Wiseman's name is another reference to the three Magi (wise men) who visited Jesus after his birth.
  • Ramsus' name may be a reference to Ramses, the name of several Egyptian pharaohs (including the one who had enslaved the Hebrews, later to be freed by Moses).
