Ending Question *MASSIVE SPOILERS*

#1DarkAmdusiasPosted 5/18/2013 1:43:45 PM
First off, the ending was amazing. I loved the fact that it was quite a few standard deviations than the "happily ever after" endings that are all over the place. That said however, I'm a little confused about one thing. I was under the impression that the Heart of Chaos was passed from Guardian to Guardian. When Noel kills Caius, should he not have inherited it, saving Etro in the process? Did I miss a significant detail or two along the way somewhere?

I believe somewhere along the way it's mentioned that only another guardian can kill the former one with the Heart of Etro. After killing the "heart-bearer" (or "official Guardian" or whatever) the next guardian can either be overwhelmed by the heart's influence or choose to have it destroyed......or something along those lines. I think it might have been a cutscene somewhere that mentions it.

Huh. It makes me wonder why Noel didn't just accept it, then. I mean, he knew what would happen if Etro died, after all. Admittedly, that would have meant sacrificing himself, but that's still one person over all of time itself.

If the will of the one who is getting the heart is strong enough, the transfer is stopped and the hearth is destroyed.


Noel did not know this, but Caius did. That why the entire game Caius build up Noel will.


When Noel refused to kill Caius no matter what choice we make, Caius knew Noel will was strong enough and that is why Caius killed himself on Noel's weapon.


Anything to clarified?

Wait, isn't there some scene where Noel floats through historia crux with the heart in him?

Paradox ending, because you kill Caius before Noel's will is strong enough to reject the heart of Etro.
