In this game, once the game begins the world ends in 13 days, but coinciding with its end is also the birth of a new world. Lightning's task as a "liberator/releaser of souls" is to guide them to the new world.
Wasn't that Etro's original job? So....Light = Etro confirmed. -___-
Lightning's clothes are the clothes of a soul liberator, and the clothes and task are given by Bhunivelze. That's because while the "crystal myth" involves many gods, out of the ones that are concerned in the "Lightning Saga", Bhunivelze is the only one who hasn't made an appearance.
Interesting, this might explain lightning's "foolish goddess" comment. Is she being controlled by Bhunivelze? She displayed the highest regards for Etro in 13-2, and now shares Bhuni's contempt for her in Returns. Very interesting. Guiding soles to the new world is probably her "focus" given by Bhuni, obviously she'll deny it. If she doesn't, then Lightnings character has been fully derailed, and I'll finally acknowledge that Toriyama is a hack.
The people of Luxerion quietly await the end, however, a bunch of serial murders start happening, these are apparently committed by a group of people who oppose Bhunivelze's creed.
Maybe Caius is the leader of the serial murderers? By murdering these people, he is preventing their souls from crossing over into the new world. Why? New world = Yeul Cycle begins again maybe.
As previously stated, each of the game's four continents has its own concept associated with it. Luxerion's is "murder", because they wanted it to have a mystery component aimed at slightly more mature audiences.
This has me hyped because each continent will have it's own theme.
-Lightning's growth is tied to completing the quests you get from people in-game. From battles you get components to make new equipment and points to alter the amount of availiable time before the end.
This really is starting to sound like Majora's Mask.
I AM SATANAIL. HE WHO SHALL SET RIGHT THIS DISTORTED UNIVERSE!!!
