Let's Play Xenogears, Part 23

We were up against a strict deadline and couldn't afford to design most of the rest of the game, so... welcome to Exposition Theater!

Answered questions

  • Grahf and Lacan are the same person.  How Fei also has Lacan's memories has yet to be revealed, however...
  • Ramsus was cultivated to be an ultimate life form of sorts, but was rejected when Fei came into the picture and literally cast aside into a garbage dump.  He managed to survive and re-emerge, however, and developed a subconscious hatred for the one who had replaced him, hence his obsession with Fei...
  • Ramsus is being manipulated by Krelian, Miang and the Ministry into killing him, which is something only he is capable of as he is Cain's clone.

Various factoids and symbolism

  • The Kahal/Qahal are a theocratic organizational structure in ancient Israelite society.
  • Taura (Melchior) shares his name with the last of the three sages who visited Jesus after his birth.
  • In Norse mythology, Fenrir is a monstrous wolf and son of Loki, who was foretold to be the cause of Odin's death at Ragnarok (though he would also be killed shortly thereafter by Vidarr).
