Is this an accurate summary of the overall plot? SPOILERS

#1RykoLibrePosted 1/20/2013 11:46:59 PM
Bhunivelze kills his mother Mwynn to become the sole creator (the maker). Bhunivelze creates three gods (Etro, Lindzei and Pulse). Pulse creates Grand Pulse and Lindzei creates Cocoon. Etro, bearing a resemblance to Mwynn, is left with no powers. Having created the three gods, Bhunivelze joins his dead mother in the unseen world (Valhalla) and goes into an eternal slumber. Etro, depressed with having no power, kills herself and too is sent to the unseen world where she comes to meet Mwynn.

Valhalla is home to an element called chaos. Chaos devours all balance and time in the universe and must be kept in check (Chaos is attempting to escape from the unseen world via "the gate" into the world of pulse and coccoon). However, the chaos in Valhalla is too great and unstable and has greatly weakened Mwynn. Mwynn who has become very weak from her duties passes the responsibility down to Etro. Etro, realizing the mistakes Mwynn made creates human life to share the burden of containing chaos (by keeping chaos in the hearts of all humans). Therefore when a human dies, chaos escapes their hearts and creeps in through "the gate" (renamed to "the gate of Etro") and when life is created, chaos is transferred out of "the gate" to the human heart making the chaos of Valhalla much easier to contain and transforming the empty worlds of Pulse and Cocoon into the mortal world.

Etro creates Yeul (a jesus like figure) to act as her visionary daughter in the mortal world. A man named Caius would come to protect Yeul and Etro would "reward" him by granting him eternal life and her heart (if the heart of Etro would stop beating, Etro would die and "the gate" would swing open).

Meanwhile in the world of the living Lindzei and Pulse created many Fal'cie to run the operations of the world. As thousands of years went by, the Fal'cie began to desire to meet their maker. They knew that their maker was in the unseen world, but they could not get through "the gate." Therefore they devised a plan (a plan that would take numerous attempts). Their plan was to wait for Cocoon to flourish (millions of people living in it) and then one day destroy Cocoon as a sacrifice. With millions of deaths all occurring at once, "the gate" would not be able to withstand all of the chaos pouring in and would be forced to swing wide open allowing them to enter the unseen world (they couldn't care less that it would unleash chaos onto the mortal world effectively destroying it). The problem the Fal'cie faced was that they were creations that could only do what they were programmed to do and they were programmed to defend themselves if they ever were attacked.

Therefore the Fal'cie created l'cie out of humans to do their bidding. They created immense obstacle courses and arcs in hopes to train their l'cie to be strong enough to defeat them. They manipulated the l'cie every step of the way in hopes that they could arrive at Orphan, transform into Ragnarok and destroy cocoon. Lightning and her group made their way to Orphan with their focus to destroy it. But then something happened. Etro interfered. Etro changed Lightning's group's focus from destroying Orphan to saving cocoon. The group successfully destroys Orphan and Fang and Vanille turn into Ragnarok and create the crystal pillar. Lightning and the others had successfully saved Cocoon and completed their focus and are naturally turned into crystal. Once again Etro interferes and frees them from their crystal. Everything that happened so far is the correct timeline and what the Yeul's foresaw. Then something unexpected happened. While Etro was busy interfering, a wave of chaos escaped and began to engulf Lightning. Etro was forced to rewind time to bring the Chaos back to Vahalla but it ended up pulling Lightning to the unseen world with it. This created a paradox where Lightning never existed after the crystal spire was created.

This paradox caused all of the Yeul's to see brand new visions of the future. The changes were so drastic that it killed all of them. Each Yeul could no longer live a full life and were forced to die young. Caius, who loved Yeul could not stand to see her forced into a eternity of endless pain and death. He swore to destroy Etro, release chaos onto the mortal world and stop all of time so that Yeul would not have to suffer. Similar to thee Fal'cie, he devised a plan where he would create paradoxes that would lead to the destruction of both the old and new cocoons. Similar to the fal'cie's plan, he knew if enough people died at once, then the gate of etro would swing open and chaos would engulf the world.

However Caius knew this plan could never work. He saw all of the timelines and knew that Noel and Serah would prevent cocoon from being destroyed. Similar to the Fal'cie, with the heart of etro inside of him, he was programmed to defend himself and could not bring his own destruction. Therefore he devised the plan to destroy Cocoon as a ruse so that Noel and Serah would defeat him and kill him. Once they killed him, etro died, and chaos burst out of the gate of etro engulfing the mortal world. Due to the enormous change in the timeline, Serah, who possessed the same abilities as Yeul, died. Lightning realizing that Serah intended to die to save the mortal world takes on the responsibility Mwynn and Etro had before her and becomes the guardian of chaos on Valhalla. This deed seals the gate. The amount of chaos that remains in the mortal world and the damage it has done remains to be seen.

I should have added that Etro rewinding time was a one time thing. It took up almost all of her power and she was forced into an eternal slumber. Caius used this opportunity to attack.

The correct summary is 'Etro is an idiot and while she means well, she's completely inept'.

Mwynn who has become very weak from her duties passes the responsibility down to Etro. Etro, realizing the mistakes Mwynn made creates human life to share the burden of containing chaos (by keeping chaos in the hearts of all humans).

Human were made from Etro blood when she killed herself. However that connection made it easier to share the chaos.


Etro creates Yeul (a jesus like figure) to act as her visionary daughter in the mortal world. A man named Caius would come to protect Yeul and Etro would "reward" him by granting him eternal life and her heart (if the heart of Etro would stop beating, Etro would die and "the gate" would swing open)


Etro did not create her, just gave her the eyes of Etro like she gave Caius her heart.


Caius, who loved Yeul could not stand to see her forced into a eternity of endless pain and death. He swore to destroy Etro, release chaos onto the mortal world and stop all of time so that Yeul would not have to suffer. Similar to thee Fal'cie, he devised a plan where he would create paradoxes that would lead to the destruction of both the old and new cocoons. Similar to the fal'cie's plan, he knew if enough people died at once, then the gate of etro would swing open and chaos would engulf the world.

However Caius knew this plan could never work. He saw all of the timelines and knew that Noel and Serah would prevent cocoon from being destroyed.


Actually, using a guardian was his plan all along. The paradoxes were just used to goat them into killing Caius.


other than that...pretty accurate. I applause you.
