Yeul and the end of days (spoilers)

#1OrnerySpoonPosted 5/19/2013 2:28:02 PM
This idea has been rolling around in my head for a while and I finally decided I'd post it and see if someone can explain it to me.

So Caius' motivation is to prevent Yeul from getting reincarnated over and over and just let her finally die for real, so he doesn't have to bear the pain of seeing her die every fifteen or so years.

So in 700 AF, it's just Caius, Noel, and Yeul.

Why didn't Caius just...y'know...do nothing?

Humanity is dying out. There are literally three people left in the world. There aren't any women left to get pregnant and birth a new Yeul (besides Yeul herself, and that shouldn't work). Yeul dies one last time, and then it's just Noel and Caius left. Caius is apparently able to reach Valhalla anyway, so he can go be with Yeul there in the afterlife or whatever. Mission accomplished.

I just don't see why he had to crack this grand, complicated plan that involved manipulating Noel into killing him when it would be so much easier and more reliable to just let the future take it's course. He could even kill Noel if he wanted to prevent him from trying to save the world with time traveling stuff.

Am I missing something important? Because so far this idea makes a lot more sense to me that what actually happens.

He wanted to give peace to ALL the Yeuls across all the times lines.

Would that mean he would've caused all the previous Yules to never exist in the first place?

And Orneryspoon, that is a pretty decent theory and question.
That would make sense. Another reason why XIII-2's story is bad~

The story is not bad.


Anyway: If they don't exist, they won't suffer.

This OP makes an awful lot of sense to me.

Far more so than the concept of wanting to prevent pain that has already ended.

For whatever reason, it reminds me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cx4Cg2yvVQ where he's being instructed to eat a sandwich he already ate...

It involves time travel, everything sucks because of Etro and Lightning (and sort of Noel, too) is practically at fault for what happened to Sera, the entire thing could've been resolved easily had Caius committed suicide to begin with or Etro would have left the heroes in the previous game in Crystal Stasis.

Caius can't committed suicide.
