    Warning: Interpretation can be subjective.
    Odin Sphere is a 2D-platform side-scrolling action game with RPG 
    elements.  Although the player can only use one character at a time, 
    there are five playable characters whose fates are intertwined in the 
    world called Erion.
    Each character follows his/her own storyline and may encounter another 
    during the game.  The character can explore different dungeons, 
    depending what is available on the chapter, and each dungeon features 
    different enemies and environmental threats.  For example, in the Fire 
    Kingdom, the character constantly takes heat damage if he/she does not 
    equip the right accessory or drink a certain potion.  Unlike 
    traditional RPGs, each character has only one weapon but the 
    character’s constitution and his/her weapon, known as a Psypher, can be 
    improved on.
    As foretold in the prophecies, Armageddon is approaching and the war 
    between two nations, Ringford and Ragnanival, escalates to full-scale 
    as both nations vie over the ownership of a giant magical furnace 
    called the Cauldron. According to the prophecies, 5 great disasters 
    shall occur during Armageddon and the Cauldron is one of the catalysts. 
    The game starts with a girl named Alice who has found some books in the 
    attic and starts reading them with her cat, Socrates.  Socrates allows 
    the player to review all the past events and reading a book will begin 
    a story.  There are seven books altogether and they are
    ‘The Pooka Prince’
    ‘Fairy Land’
    ‘The Black sword’
    ‘Wheel of Fate’
    Alice starts with the first book and as each book is completed, the 
    next book becomes available.  However, the last book ‘Wheel of Fate’ 
    requires some effort from the player to unlock it.
    The first five books take place before Armageddon and each book tells a 
    story from a character’s perspective.
    ‘Valkyrie’         is Gwendolyn’s book
    ‘The Pooka Prince’ is Cornelious’ book
    ‘Fairy Land’       is Mercedes’ book
    ‘The Black Sword’  is Oswald’s book
    ‘Fate’             is Velvet’s book
    After completing the book ‘Fate’, the book ‘Armageddon’ becomes 
    available.  It depicts a certain individual causing the first disaster 
    foretold in the prophecies, setting the wheel of Armageddon in motion.  
    Through 5 epic battles, the player will determine the fate of Erion.  
    Will Erion be destroyed or will it be saved?
    The last book ‘Wheel of Fate’ is unlocked if the player followed the 
    right order to fulfil the prophecies.  It tells of the aftermath of 
    Character Synopsis            (OSSYN) 
    There are 5 playable characters available in Odin Sphere. Playable 
    characters are
    <Gwendolyn>              (SYNGWEN)
    <Cornelious>             (SYNCORN)
    <Mercedes>               (SYNMERC)
    <Oswald>                 (SYNOSWA)
    <Velvet>                 (SYNVELV)
    Warning: Interpretations can be subjective.
    <Gwendolyn>              (SYNGWEN)
    -Character Analysis-
    Gwendolyn is a Valkyrie, an Aesir member of the nation Ragnanival.  She 
    is also King Odin’s daughter.  She yearns for Odin’s affection and 
    approval.  In addition, she also feels inferior towards her sister, 
    Griselda, who seems to have Odin’s devoted attention.
    The name of her Pyspher spear is unknown.
    After a certain event, Gwendolyn claims the Psypher spear from her 
    dying sister.  Regardless that the Aesir’s defeat is inevitable, 
    Gwendolyn continued to charge into the battlefield until she was 
    defeated by the Shadow Knight, who spared her.  Feeling shamed, she 
    returned to Ragnival to report before amassing another force to take 
    Gwendolyn’s devotion to her father shows many times in the book 
    ‘Valkyrie’.  Charging an enemy’s stronghold with a small force just 
    after being defeated; outright defying the king from his duties to 
    fulfil his true desires; contemplating to assassinate her designated 
    husband for her father’s victory, etc.
    Despite her devotion to her father, a new, indescribable feeling begins 
    to blossom as the kindness of her husband, Oswald, gradually touched 
    her heart.  In comparison, a typical male Aesir treats a female as an 
    object.  To salvage her relationship with Oswald after a 
    misunderstanding happens, Gwendolyn went to the extent of infiltrating 
    Ringford and even the Netherworld by herself.  In addition, she also 
    pleaded with her father, in front of Oswald, to take her life as well 
    if he takes the ring from her.
    -Fighting ability-
    Her prowess is not to be taken lightly.
    In her book, not only she is able to invade Ringford by herself, which 
    practically puts Melvin’s rebellion into shame, she also killed Odette, 
    the Queen of the Netherworld.
    As a Valkyrie, Gwendolyn is able to glide in the air, after the double-
    jump, for a short period and execute a deadly dive attack, from air 
    gliding, that can pierce.  Its effectiveness increases with the 
    monster’s size and many bosses, sub and main, in the game are large.
    *Gwendolyn excels in hit-and-run with the dive attack.
    In addition, Gwendolyn has a unique spell called shadow ally, which 
    practically doubles her damage output for a short time.  Combining it 
    with Overload, a spell that increases damage, is a sweet combination to 
    Gwendolyn’s down attack makes her dashes forward a little and does a 
    low stab.
    Gwendolyn’s up attack makes her throw her spear in a narrow arc.
    The last hit of her ground combo executes a bit slow.
    Average running speed to circle 1st map of ‘Forest of Elfrit’ = ~8.4
    <Cornelious>             (SYNCORN)
    -Character Analysis-
    Cornelious is the son of Edmund, who is the current king of Titania.  
    He is in love with Velvet, commonly known as the Forest witch.  Despite 
    his father’s objections, Cornelious prioritize love over duty, to the 
    extent of threatening to abdicate his position such that he seems 
    immature in the eyes of his eyes.
    The name of his Psypher sword is unknown, except that it is a 
    patricidal sword, which is used to kill King Gallon.
    Something happens when Cornelious went to meet Velvet again and he 
    wakes up to find himself in a strange environment.  As if being in the 
    Netherworld is not bad enough, he is cursed into a beast known as 
    Pooka.  He meets King Gallon, although Cornelious could only hear his 
    voice, and receives a Psypher sword before Cornelious continues his 
    journey to find Odette, Queen of the Netherworld.
    Cornelious deeply loves Velvet, even to the extent of running into a 
    warzone to look for her; Attacking Mercedes when Velvet is hurt by an 
    arcane bolt; charging into the Titania sewers to save Velvet who would 
    be sacrificed to a dragon, etc.
    Due to the Pooka curse, Cornelious feels unworthy of Velvet.
    -Fighting ability-
    Despite being a Pooka, Cornelious effectively makes use of his small 
    size and superior swordplay to vanquish his opponents.
    In his book, Cornelious killed Belial and even Wagner acknowledged that 
    Cornelious could kill him.
    Cornelious has a special attack dubbed as the spin attack.  The spin 
    attack is not as strong as Cornelious’ aerial attack but can be more 
    versatile in the hands of a capable player.  The spin attack can bounce 
    off enemies, destroy projectile in the sword’s path and the speed is 
    dependent on the angle of contact and Cornelious’ initial inertia.  
    However, the spin attack is a double-edged sword.  Cornelious is still 
    vulnerable to damage in this phase.  Despite the spin makes his sword 
    look like an impenetrable shell, it does not really spin at great speed 
    so Cornelious always exposes more the half of his body to danger.
    Cornelious’ down attack is stationary and he swings his blade upwards.
    Cornelious’ up attack simply makes him swing upwards.
    The second last hit of his ground combo makes him swing downwards and 
    has a slight post recovery time before he swing upwards for the last 
    hit.  It causes a juggling effect.
    Average running speed to circle 1st map of ‘Forest of Elfrit’ = ~8.45
    <Mercedes>               (SYNMERC)
    -Character Analysis-
    Mercedes is a fairy and she is the daughter of Elfaria, Queen of 
    Ringford.  Compared to her cousin Melvin, Mercedes is seen to be 
    impatient, immature and wilful.  Mercedes’ true name is Yggdrasil.
    Mercedes’ Psypher bow belongs to her mother and is initially named 
    ‘Tasla’.  It is renamed by Brom later as ‘Riblam’, meaning ‘Piercing 
    One’ in the Old Dwarf Tongue.  It is the only Psypher that shattered 
    another Psypher, namely Balor.
    During the war against Ragnanival, her mother died and the 
    inexperienced Mercedes is forced to shoulder the heavy responsibilities 
    of a Queen.  To make things worse, her ambitious cousin decided that he 
    is more fitting and staged a mutiny to overthrow her.
    Although Mercedes suffers from inferior complexity as she tries to live 
    up to her mother’s reputation, Mercedes did mature as chapters unfold.  
    Even though Mercedes feels great fear before the final battle, she 
    bravely rallies her troops.  In addition, rather than taking revenge 
    after defeating Odin, Mercedes demands Odin to surrender to her terms, 
    which are to never to show his face to her, set foot in Fairy Land and 
    choose to remain forever in his northern lands.  
    One of her favourite pastime is frog hunting, as frogs eat little 
    fairies. After losing her Psypher bow while paying a visit to Beldor, a 
    Wise Man, Mercedes’ fate becomes intertwined with a mysterious frog.  
    With the promise of a wish lingering from their fateful encounter, the 
    frog made major contributions that lead to Mercedes’ success.  The frog 
    is no ordinary frog but is a human prince cursed into the form of a 
    frog and after the spell is broken, Mercedes fell in love with the 
    young man.  
    -Fighting ability-
    In her book, she defeated Odin and shattered Balor.  In addition, she 
    also defeated Oswald, albeit he was in a weakened state.
    Because of her lithe nature, Mercedes descends slowly after her jump.  
    Mercedes is also quite fragile and cannot withstand much damage.  On 
    the other hand, the damage of her arcane bolt is top notch.
    Rather than a typical double-jump, Mercedes is the only playable 
    character who is able to fly and being able to fly is a 2D side-
    scroller is a significant advantage.  Because fairies generally rely on 
    flying, Mercedes can only walk on the ground while the other playable 
    characters run.
    Mercedes is the only character to attack at far range and three types 
    of ranged shots are available.  The normal shot can be released quickly 
    while the down shot is a piercing shot that travels along the ground, 
    which also knocks down enemies in its path.  Her last is a charge shot, 
    which consumes a lot more POW but releases several arcane bolts, which 
    have some homing ability.  The charge shot can be charged while moving.  
    *One tip of abusing charge shot is to use it instead of a normal shot 
    when there is one POW bar left because POW cannot go below 0.
    The POW gauge also functions differently for Mercedes.  While other 
    Psyphers’ POW automatically recharges after a time lapse, the bow’s POW 
    does not.  The reload function is available only when POW is fully 
    depleted and Mercedes is required to reload on the ground and in a 
    stationary position.  While other characters become dizzy when POW is 
    depleted, Mercedes does not.  Moreover, the reload function is not 
    automatic so Mercedes can escape to a lower danger zone to reload 
    before returning to the heat.  
    *Learning when to abuse unlimited POW potion is the way for Mercedes.
    Average Flying speed to circle 1st map of ‘Forest of Elfrit’ = ~10.05 
    Average walking speed to circle 1st map of ‘Forest of Elfrit’= ~12.5
    <Oswald>                 (SYNOSWA)
    -Character Analysis-
    Oswald is the son of Edgar, who is the brother of Edmund, and is the 
    adopted son of Melvin, who found him abandoned.  Oswald is greatly 
    feared by many on the battlefield and is known as the Shadow Knight.  
    While he is a member of Ringford, he serves only Melvin and is 
    dedicated to his foster father.   
    Oswald’s Psypher sword is known as the Belderiver.  It power is gained 
    from a contract made by Melvin, which traded Oswald’s life for the 
    power of shadow.
    There are several turning points for Oswald. Hindel’s words, seeing 
    Gwendolyn during a spy mission, Melvin’s confession and Odin’s offer.  
    In the early chapters, Oswald dedicated his life to serve Melvin, 
    regardless the price, until he hears Melvin’s confession.  From that 
    point onwards, Oswald had little tolerance towards those who use others 
    as objects.
    Betrayed and devastated by Melvin’s confession, Oswald crumbles under 
    the overbearing gloom of despair until he sees a blue bird.  Envisaging 
    Gwendolyn as his glimmer of hope, Oswald committed many deeds to have 
    her by his side.  The deeds range from killing Wagner to win her hand, 
    beating up Onyx for stealing her and killing Skuldi for belittling her.  
    However, his love is more than simply obsession or infatuation.  When 
    he first hears of the sleeping spell’s side effect, Oswald refrains 
    from waking Gwendolyn up.  In addition, when he hears the truth about 
    the sleeping spell, Oswald is relieved as Gwendolyn’s love cannot be 
    compelled, only given willingly. 
    -Fighting ability-
    Oswald is one of the most, if not the most, feared warriors on Erion.  
    He is victorious even against powerful beasts known as dragons. In his 
    book, he killed Hindel and even Wagner.  In addition, he triumphs over 
    Onyx, the Inferno King, as well.
    Oswald’s foundations are strong, boasting high damage and high defence 
    capabilities.  In addition, he has the furthest double-jump 
    capabilities among the three.
    True to his title of Shadow Knight, Oswald can turn himself into a 
    shadow using Shadow Form.  In Shadow Form, Oswald deals the highest 
    damage per hit among all characters and by a significant margin.  
    However, Shadow Form depletes POW at a high rate, putting Oswald at 
    risk of being stunned after executing a complete combo. Even with 
    unlimited POW potion, Shadow Form lasts longer for 2-3 combo sequences 
    rather than negating its side effects.
    *Using Shadow Form effectively is a key to victory.
    On a minor note, Oswald gains [Cyclone] quite late, which affects his 
    mob clearing efficiency in 4/5 star maps.
    Oswald’s down attack has two attack phases.  Like Gwendolyn, he also 
    dashes for a short distance with a low stab and then swings upward for 
    a second hit.  Also causes a juggle effect.
    Oswald’s up attack simply makes him swing upwards.
    During his last attack in a ground combo, Oswald jumps and then 
    executes a diving attack.  This can be advantageous or disadvantageous, 
    depending on the situation.
    During his last attack in an aerial combo, Oswald executes a diving 
    attack.  This can be advantageous or disadvantageous, depending on the 
    Average running speed to circle 1st map of ‘Forest of Elfrit’ = ~8.35
    <Velvet>                 (SYNVELV)
    -Character Analysis-
    Velvet is one of the remaining human survivors of the once-mighty 
    Valentine Empire.  She is the twin sister of Inway, the daughter of 
    Odin and the granddaughter of King Valentine.  In other words, she is a 
    princess of two nations.
    The name of her Psypher chain is Graveryl.
    Velvet has lived a traumatic childhood.  She is frequently punished by 
    her grandfather, has seen her nation destroyed and even ‘cursed’ by her 
    mother.  Quoting the note, “an inevitable curse and death shall be 
    thrown upon the two of you.”  In hope that she can avoid the fate 
    prophesized by her mother, Velvet went in search of Hindel.  Instead of 
    satisfying her query, Velvet leaves Horn Mountain even more puzzled and 
    begins collecting the Erion Saga.
    Velvet’s fate is deeply entwined with the Cauldron and the ring of 
    Titrel.  She is attacked by Mercedes for stealing the ring of Titrel, 
    captured by the Aesir for deactivating the Cauldron, raided by goblins 
    under King Valentine’s orders and almost sacrificed to Belial by the 
    Three Wise Men.
    Velvet also loves Cornelious and is unaffected by his physical 
    appearance.  When she learns that Cornelious is the Pooka that saved 
    her, she immediately sets off to find him.  Even after several 
    millennia, Velvet’s love for Cornelious is eternal. 
    -Fighting ability-
    Although she is physically the weakest among the five playable 
    characters, she uses her Psypher chain rather innovatively. Although 
    she did not kill any powerful enemies in her book, she did defeat Inway 
    in the form of Darkova, a powerful 3-headed beast. 
    With the use of her chain, Velvet can execute something illogical while 
    in air by pressing the jump button after the double-jump.  Latching one 
    chain end onto the air, Velvet does a chain swing in the direction she 
    is facing.  This defensive maneuver can be useful in certain 
    One of Velvet’s selling points is her charge attack.  It has an attack 
    range of several screens, has autohoming ability and has great damage.  
    With this, Velvet is able to attack a large size mob from a distance.  
    It does have its drawbacks.  The POW cost is approx. half the gauge, 
    Velvet is required to be stationary while charging and the charge 
    attack requires some time to charge.
    *The charge attack is a great substitute for [Cyclone] in low star 
    Velvet’s up attack is a little weird.  It has a short activation time 
    before the chain ends spiral upwards to do a multi-hit attack.  Its 
    anti-air capability is one of the best.
    Velvet’s down attack makes her throw a chain end and sweep it upwards, 
    causing a knockdown effect.
    Average running speed to circle 1st map of ‘Forest of Elfrit’ = ~8.4

    is never shown a loss in the game during his peak, which ends after 
    point 25.
    Non-Playable Characters         (OSNPC)
    This section is for characters that are not playable but important 
    enough in the game.

    <Wagner>                 (NPCWAGN)
    Warning: Interpretations can be subjective.
    <Belial>                 (NPCBELI)
    -Character Analysis-
    Belial is a pitiful dragon whose soul is stolen by Beldor and thus 
    enslaved by the Three Wise Men.  It fervently desires undisturbed 
    peace.  However, it is frequently forced by its masters to commit many 
    atrocities, such as staying in damp sewers to devour sacrifices.
    Belial’s heart is pierced by Cornelious in C7-4 and during its last 
    living moments, Belial devours Urzur in revenge.
    <Elfaria>                (NPCELFA)
    -Character Analysis-
    Elfaria is the Queen of Ringford and leader of the Vanir.  She is noted 
    to be beautiful and her true name is Fimbulvetr.  She is the Mother of 
    Mercedes and aunt of Melvin.
    She is the owner of the Psypher bow, Tasla, and the ring of Titrel, 
    which is given by Inway.  
    She is a wise ruler and with the Cauldron’s power, she succeeded in 
    unifying the fairies and unicorns, previously existed as small tribes, 
    to form the country of Ringford.  Ringford is now considered an equal 
    with the other two nations of Erion.
    Unfortunately, Elfaria dies in point 30, after she is attacked by the 
    Demon Lord’s Psypher.
    <Gallon>                 (NPCGALL)
    -Character Analysis-
    Gallon is the former king of Titania, succeeded by his son, Edmund. He 
    has two sons, Edmund and Edgar.  Gallon disowned Edgar after the latter 
    felt in love with a woman of low social status and had him assassinated 
    later, in fear of retribution.
    Via a secret rite, Gallon gains the ability to turn into a 3-headed 
    demon beast, which is powerful enough to deter King Valentine from 
    conquering Titania in the past.  However, the power of Darkova is 
    flawed and he rampaged for seven days before he is slain by his son, 
    Edmund, using a Psypher sword.  For unknown reasons, Gallon took the 
    Psypher sword to the Netherworld, in which he passed to Cornelious 
    years later.
    Gallon found no peace even after death.  He is constantly plagued by 
    the Three Wise Men, who seek to free him from his chains.  In addition, 
    Odette cast a curse of immortality on him, which forcibly regenerates 
    him, in hope to torment him indefinitely.  Gallon yearns for “the light 
    of life” but only one descended from Titanian royalty bloodline can 
    kill him.
    Gallon only finds salvation if he is defeated by the “shadow of the 
    lost master”, Oswald.
    <Hindel>                 (NPCHIND)
    -Character Analysis-
    A dragon with the ability to prophesize and speaks in the way where 
    humans and fairies tend to misinterpret.  Its purpose in the game is to 
    influence Oswald and Velvet’s subsequent actions in the game.
    Hindel is killed by Oswald in O1-1.
    <Inway>                  (NPCINWA)
    -Character Analysis-
    Inway is the prince of the lost Kingdom of Valentine.  He is the twin 
    brother, son of Odin and the grandson of King Valentine.  Inway is a 
    mage who is able to transform and can cast the dreaded Pooka curse.
    Inway loves his sister Velvet and is jealous of her affection for 
    Cornelious, to the extent that he casted the Pooka curse on Cornelious.  
    Inway also grieves of his lack of power to protect his sister when she 
    was disciplined by their grandfather.
    Inway leads a miserable life, as he is completely convinced that they 
    are damned by their mother.  Quoting the note, “an inevitable curse and 
    death shall be thrown upon the two of you.”  Adding to his misery, at 
    one point of time, he is cursed into the form of a frog and to break 
    the curse, he has to tail after a wilful, spoiled fairy.  In addition, 
    the power Inway sought from the Three Wise Men has several side 
    effects.  The power of Darkova is flawed and it turns even pain, be it 
    emotional or physical, into pleasure.  Inway lusts even for his 
    sister’s blood, even though he consciously acknowledges the vileness of 
    the act.   The second side effect is that Darkova can be controlled via 
    a spell, which the Three Wise Men successfully researched, and Inway is 
    forced by Beldor to kill against his will.  
    Despite his miserable existence, Inway does show a hint of affection 
    for Mercedes with his dying breath in some point sectors.
    As predicted by his mother, Inway dies in the book ‘Armageddon’.
    <Melvin>                 (NPCMELV)
    -Character Analysis-
    Melvin can be considered a prince, as he is the nephew of Elfaria.  
    More importantly, he is considered mature and a brilliant tactician by 
    Ringford denizens.  He is the foster father of Oswald.  His true name 
    is Nidhogg.
    Melvin is ruthless and ambitious.  He is willing to trade the life of 
    others for power, as he had made a contact with the Halja for 
    Belderiver’s power in exchange for Oswald’s life.  His ambitious nature 
    surfaces several times, while Elfaria is alive, and manifests 
    completely when he decided to stage a mutiny, soon after Elfaria died.
    Although Melvin treats Oswald like a pawn during the game, he did once 
    have another feeling for Oswald when he found him abandoned as a baby.  
    Melvin dies in point 40, after suffering critical wounds from the 
    suppression forces.
    <Odette>                 (NPCODET)
    -Character Analysis-
    Odette is the Queen of the Netherworld and the master of Oswald, who is 
    promised to be hers, for eternity, via a contract formed by Melvin.  
    Odette is the bridge that connects the Netherworld with the living.  
    Therefore, when she dies, the only way to enter the Netherworld is to 
    accept death.  Looking from another perspective, Odette is the reason 
    why the dead can return to the living world, even if they are killed 
    many times.
    Odette loves her jewels and hates Odin, a petty jewel thief.  This is 
    because the jewels are formed from phozons, the essence of life.  By 
    stealing the jewels, it is tantamount to disrupting life’s natural 
    Being the Queen of the Dead, Odette harbours discriminations against 
    unwanted visitors and creatures that defy the natural order.  For 
    example, Odette tries to imprison Mercedes and Velvet for barging into 
    her Queendom.  For creatures that defy the natural order, namely the 
    Pooka, Odette sends her minions to torment them indefinitely.  
    Odette dies in V7-6a, by the hands of Gwendolyn.
    <Odin>                   (NPCODIN)
    -Character Analysis-
    Odin is the ruler of the northern lands, leader of the Aesir and king 
    of the Ragnanival nation.  Odin is known as the Demon Lord.  He is the 
    father of Gwendolyn, Griselda, Velvet and Inway.  Odin has gained his 
    tremendous power by drinking the blood of Wagner, a dragon, and because 
    of this, he cannot harm Wagner.
    Odin carries the Wicked Eye, Balor, which is considered the most 
    powerful Psypher.  Its size is humongous, as it is even bigger than any 
    playable character.  Odin made it specifically to handle the 
    prophesized invasion by the Netherworld.  
    Odin started a war with the Vanir, in order to control the Cauldron.  
    His true motives is to be one of the two ‘crownless lords’ stated in 
    the prophecies. 
    Although Odin may seem cold-hearted, he is tormented when he has to 
    choose between duties as the king and feelings of a father.  For one, 
    when Odin is being cajoled to execute Velvet, Odin hesitates.  Even 
    though Odin can easily take the ring of Titrel from Gwendolyn, he did 
    not do so after Gwendolyn pleaded with him.
    Odin dies in the prelude of Armageddon when the Netherworld invaded.
    <Onyx>                   (NPCONYX)
    -Character Analysis-
    Onyx is the king of the Fire Kingdom and ruler of the Vulcans.  Onyx is 
    known as the Inferno King.  He has the power to transform.
    Onyx is infatuated with Gwendolyn and does not care what methods are 
    used to obtain her. As long Gwendolyn stays by his side, Onyx is even 
    willing to let her sleep for eternity.  This is because he knows 
    Gwendolyn will not love him and will be frightened by his true 
    appearance.  If he meets Gwendolyn in [Firestorm], his love and hatred 
    for her explodes beyond his control.
    Onyx hates Oswald for stealing Gwendolyn and for humiliating him.  
    Using the promise given by Oswald, Onyx sends Oswald to his demise and 
    deliberately waits even when there is no news of his return after some 
    time.  When Gwendolyn attempts to rescue Oswald, Onyx sends his Vulcans 
    to interfere.
    Onyx is one of the five prophesized disasters and he cannot be killed 
    except by the world tree, which exists only in myth.  So he thought, as 
    he ravaged Ringford in the book ‘Armageddon’.  Onyx can only be 
    defeated by Mercedes.
    <The Three Wise Men>     (NPCGALL)
    -Character Analysis-
    Urzur, Beldor and Skuldi are the Three Wise Men.  They know a lot of 
    magic and have great influence on several Erion nations.  Their 
    stronghold is in the sewers of Titania nation.
    Rather than being wise and sagely, their true nature is three power-
    hungry and manipulative wizards and they are trying to control 
    Armageddon directly.
    Beldor is cursed into a Pooka in M4-6.
    Urzur  is killed by Belial    in C7-6a.
    Skuldi is killed by Oswald    in O6-6.
    <Valentine>              (NPCGALL)
    -Character Analysis-
    Valentine is the king of the lost kingdom of Valentine.  He is the 
    grandfather of Velvet and Inway.  He deeply loves his daughter.
    The kingdom of Valentine had more advanced magic and technology than 
    any other nation.  Not only were they prosperous, the kingdom also 
    rapidly controlled over two-thirds of the land.  In his benevolence, 
    Valentine even infused his magic into the coins so that all may share 
    Valentine’s love for his daughter is to the point of obsession.  When 
    his daughter fell in love with Odin, he felt betrayed, feeling that his 
    daughter no longer loved him, and his love gradually turned to hatred.  
    Valentine even forced his grandchildren to abandon her and eventually 
    killed her in anger.
    While the war between Aesir and Vanir in the game was constantly in a 
    deadlock, Valentine’s efforts to expand his kingdom were astounding.  
    Valentine failed to conquer Titania completely only because of the 
    power of Darkova.  Against the Aesir, Valentine’s army were 
    overwhelmingly advantaged and at the brink of victory, a catastrophic 
    disaster occurred and the “once-prosperous nation was utterly 
    demolished”.  Subsequently, Valentine lost his reputation and dignity, 
    as well as cursed into the form of Pooka, and all this happened because 
    of a traitor.  Due to the Pooka curse, Valentine is unable to find rest 
    and his tormented soul drives him to seek oblivion, even if he has to 
    bring the world with him.
    Valentine is destroyed by Leventhan in the book ‘Armageddon’.
    <Wagner>                 (NPCWAGN)
    -Character Analysis-
    Wagner is a dragon and it bears a lot of hatred towards humans and 
    fairies.  Snatching Belial’s soul, stealing dragon eggs and killing 
    Hindel are grieves Wagner said.  In its torment of losing Hindel, 
    Wagner attacked some of the playable characters because they had 
    Psypher weapons. 
    When its anger is temporarily sated, Wagner proved willing enough to 
    help the playable characters, such as carrying Cornelious to the ruins 
    near Pooka Village.
    Wagner is killed by Oswald in O5-4.

    <Plot>                   (SBAPLOT)
    <Summary>                (SBASUMM)
    To recap, the first five books take place before Armageddon and each 
    book tells a story from a character’s perspective.
    ‘Valkyrie’         is Gwendolyn’s book
    ‘The Pooka Prince’ is Cornelious’ book
    ‘Fairy Land’       is Mercedes’ book
    ‘The Black Sword’  is Oswald’s book
    ‘Fate’             is Velvet’s book
    Each character’s chapter, act and verse do not always run in parallel 
    with the others.  Some character begins his/hers early and some later.  
    In order to piece all the characters’ stories together into a coherent 
    story, 93 points are used as the foundation. 
    The timetable (SBATIME) below is the visual representation of the story 
    before Armageddon.  For example, V7-6a of point 69 means Velvet’s book 
    ‘Fate’, Chapter 7, Act 6 Verse 1.

    The beast of despair feeds on man and destroys hope.

    The advancing inferno scorches the throne’s surroundings.
    In the Cauldron that breathes despair, the blood of the ancients boils.

    path shall be closed and void will cover the world.

    Krois’s Memo – 1 
    Saga Psalm 2
    ‘A FIERY 6-eyed beast spreads the guiding hand of salvation
    The one who removes the torment is mine own son’
    The ‘6-eyed beast’ must be Darkova, the three-headed Demon Beast.  This 
    section is based on a prophecy by a great king of Titania.
    Therefore, ‘The one who removes the torment is mine own son’ is thought 
    to refer to the bloodline of the Titanian royal family.
    And if the beast ‘feeds on man’, then most likely no human can defeat 
    it.  But it’s unthinkable that a non-human would be king of Titania…
    Unless, of course, he is as cursed as we are and is no longer human.
    Krois Memo – 2
    Saga Psalm 3
    ‘ONE that threatens the darkness is the shadow of the lost master’
    Prophecy 2nd phrase
    ‘The unleashed frenzy of death’
    Something seems odd about these phrases.  Odette, Queen of the Dead, 
    has no master.  If the ‘Lord of the Netherworld’ is not Odette, then 
    what being can emerge from the Netherworld?  Only King Gallon, who is 
    chained in the Netherworld, comes to mind.  Will he lead the army of 
    the dead to his own country…?
    Having read the Psalms based on this theory, the ‘late master’ is 
    Odette, and the shadow that threatens King Gallon is…the shadow of 
    I’ve heard that there is a swordsman who bears the shadow of death in 
    the Fairy Kingdom, but could that be…?
    Krois’s memo – 3
    Saga Psalm 4
    ‘THE looming blaze cometh, burning down the forests
    THE flood of fire that man cannot withstand is halted by the world tree 
    and vanishes’
    Evidently, King Onyx’s army from the Fire Kingdom will sweep the land 
    at Armageddon.
    The Saga states that mankind cannot resist, but ‘the world tree’ 
    destroys the army.
    Yet, this ‘world tree’ exists only in myth.  There is no such tree in 
    the world.
    The second clue is in the prophecy: 
    ‘Scorches the throne’s surroundings…’
    Does that mean that the throne itself does NOT get scorched?  If so, it 
    could be suggesting that the one on the throne is able to face the 
    Krois’s Memo – 4
    ‘The Cauldron’ is of course THE Cauldron.  When the Princess’s efforts 
    are in vain, the nightmare repeats and the Armageddon will begin.  So, 
    our king will trigger it.
    ‘THOUGH blades and arrows are unleashed, the flooding fire cannot be 
    IT can only be chained’
    The weapons that can destroy the Cauldron are Psyphers, and something 
    that is not a blade nor an arrow can ‘chain’ it.
    We are newcomers to this land, so we are not of the ‘ancient blood’.
    The one who controls the Cauldron is a Valentinian who holds a Psypher 
    made of chains.
    In other words, this must be Mistress Velvet.

    If the baby dragon Master Cornelious saw is Leventhan, as the king

    It is written that the dragon’s growth is slow, yet inevitable.
    Saga Psalm 5
    BORN in chaos and fire
    SLEEP in mother’s arms
    What is the ‘mother’ that puts the Lord of Snakes to sleep?
    With the dragons Hindel, Wagner, and Belial gone, it is unlikely that 
    the mother is a dragon.  Then what is the mother in the Psalms? 
    In the Prophecy, the phrase ‘devours the stone of blood’ can be taken 
    to mean a red magic stone created in the Cauldron.
    Even if Leventhan can be stopped by the red stone, the Armageddon 
    cannot be stopped.  The Demon Lord must have made Balor in anticipation 
    of this.
    Krois’s Memo – 6
    Saga Psalm 6
    ‘WELCOMING two crownless lords’
    The last psalm explicitly states that the world will be revived.
    The Demon Lord and the Magi have taken this to mean that whoever 
    survives Armageddon will become the new king of the world.
    The Demon Lord wrought victory through wars, and the mages tried to 
    control the Armageddon directly.  Yet, they were all mistaken.  The two 
    lords that survive will be chosen from the five challengers of the 
    Krois’s Memo: Final
    The two lords are said to be crownless.  I suspect that ‘lord’ is not 
    meant to suggest royalty, but something else.  Finally, here is the 
    conclusion and my findings.
    This is conjecture, but from Psalm 5:
    ‘LIFE disappears from the land
    ALL comes to an end’
    One can only imagine a barren world, with a tiny population.
    By ‘crownless lords’, could this mean the ancestors of mankind in the 
    New World?
    If so, it will by necessity have to be two humans, a man and a woman.
    Then we can presume that the mother in Psalm 5 can be understood as:
    “The one who defeats Leventhan becomes the mother of the New Word…”
    Everyone other than the two humans will perish.
    How can this be in any way considered salvation?  I hope that I have 
    misunderstood the prophecies.
    Wise Men’s Prophecy
    There is a theory about the prophecy of the Armageddon, left behind by 
    the Three Wise Men.
    The following pages are an excerpt from this literature.
    “…via a secret rite performed by the now-lost Valentinians, King Gallon 
    has turned into the 3-headed Demon Beast.  As in the prophecy, King 
    Gallon will save the world.”
    The ‘Lord of the Netherworld’ in the Saga is Queen Odette.  The 
    ‘looming blaze’ is the Inferno King Onyx.
    If the King of Titania releases his mystic power, overpowers the other 
    nations, and seizes the Cauldron, the Netherworld and the Fire Kingdom 
    will go to war, the three great dragons will be eradicated, and the End 
    shall come to us.
    But fear not.  The world will be saved in the end by the arrival of a 
    new king, led by a guiding hand…”
    The original manuscript written by the Three Wise Men cannot be found.  
    It must be mentioned that their theory is only an assumption based on 
    the prophecy.
    <Note>                   (TXTNOTE)
    Weapons crafted with rare magical crystals are called Psyphers.
    Unlike normal weapons, these weapons have the ability to ‘grow’ and 
    become more powerful.
    *    By pressing R1, the Psypher user will attempt to absorb phozons
    *    When enough EXP is gained from phozon absorption, the Psypher gains a 
         level and becomes more powerful.
    Psyphers Part 2
    By absorbing Phozons, the weapon’s attack is enhanced.  Also, it is 
    said that the absorbed Phozons can be used to cast various magic 
    *    By gaining sufficient levels, the Psypher user can cast more spells.
    *    The spells gained are dependent on the Psypher.
    Seeds & Cultivation
    Seeds absorb Phozons and produce fruit when planted. 
    The amount of Phozons required to ripen fruit varies, but the more a 
    plant needs, the better the fruit.
    Fruit will turn overripe when left on branches for too long.  It is 
    recommended that you pick fruit as soon as it ripens.
    *    The time needed to overripe a fruit on a branch does not overripe a 
         fruit on the ground
    Mandragoras are mobile plants that come in various types and grow 
    They are commonly known for use as catalysts in magic as well as 
    Mandragoras squeak when stepped on.  Jump on the spot where you heard 
    the squeak, and it’ll come out of the ground and start running.  Just 
    hit it once to capture it,
    *    Be careful of Habaneristo as it can spew flame.
    The Essence of Food
    Eating food heals injuries and helps strengthen the body (Increases HP 
    Food becomes your own flesh and blood, replenishing vital energy.  
    Those who eat healthy food will strengthen their bodies.  Eating 
    carefully prepared food enhances growth.  Uncooked food takes more time 
    to consume and digest.
    *    Rotten fruits take more time to digest.
    Spotting Butterflies
    Tales from long ago describe a mystical glowing butterfly.  It is 
    rarely seen and one is considered very lucky to encounter it.
    It is said that Phozons can gather together and materialize in the form 
    of a butterfly.  This butterfly can only be seen for a brief period of 
    The Art of War
    One must not attack haphazardly.  You must mind your distance from the 
    opponent, gather your power and attack swiftly.  Avoid multiple enemies 
    and fight one on one.
    Battles are not just about swinging your weapon.  You must tend your 
    wounds, use magic and items, and strengthen your weapon to truly take 
    control of the battlefield.
    History of Valentine
    The founder of the Kingdom of Valentine is said to have come to Erion 
    in a flying ship from another world.  At the time, Valentine’s magic 
    was far more powerful than any other nation on the continent, and it 
    rapidly gained control of over two-thirds of the land.
    One of their unique magics was the ability to make magic stones.  With 
    the Cauldron, a giant magical furnace, they had technology that enabled 
    them to store magic power in stones.  At the height of Valentine’s 
    power, the once-prosperous nation was utterly demolished.  Its cities 
    were reduced to ash and the Valentinians vanished overnight.
    The cause of Valentine’s demise is still unknown, but the Cauldron was 
    found in the centre of the decimation.
    Respected magi have speculated that the Cauldron’s power was released 
    with destructive results.
    *    Most Valentinians became Pooka or goblins
    Valentine’s Fall
    From the memoirs of a proud soldier:
    Our once-mighty army, which could gain victory over even Titania, has 
    been whittled down by the enemy, Valentine.  With death our only 
    companion, our warriors pushed forth without hesitation.  We flung our 
    axes high, fighting with valor to the bitter end.
    As if the heavens answered our prayers, there came a miracle.  At the 
    very brink of our defeat, the enemy forces were demolished in a single 
    explosive flash of light.
    *    Memoir is written by an Aesir soldier.
    History of Ringford
    Until a relatively short time ago, the fairies and unicorns were not a 
    united country, but instead existed as small tribes spread through the 
    Shortly after the Fairy Queen Elfaria gained control of the Cauldron, 
    the country of Ringford showed accelerated growth and established 
    themselves as a military power.
    Ringford is now considered to be equal to the other two nations of 
    Erion: Ragnanival in the north and Titania in the east.
    The Economy of Erion
    Erion has no standard currency.  Instead, the five types of coins used 
    by the various nations are accepted across the continent.
    Titania mints gold coins from their abundant gold mines, while 
    Ragnanival uses silver coins that have little value due to the poor 
    quality of silver they contain.
    Coins from the lost kingdom of Valentine are widely accepted and have 
    high values. Three types of coins were minted and are said to have been 
    *   Titania Gold is       worth 10G.  
        Ragnanival Silver is  worth 1 G.  
        Aerial coin is        worth 5 G, 
        Valentinian Gold is   worth 10G and 
        Commemorative Coin is worth 20G.  
    The Law of Titania
    1. One who deals on the ‘King’s Main Street’ shall be fined.
    2. One who deals without permission shall also be fined.
    3. One who does not pay fines is beheaded.
    4. One who complains about taxes shall be whipped and chained.
    5. One discriminating against magic shall be placed in the stocks
    6. Violence is punishable by death.
    In Erion, alchemic methods have been passed down through the ages.  
    Alchemy is performed by dissolving various objects in special liquids 
    known as Materials to create alchemy mixes.  However, the alchemist 
    must possess recipes to successfully create a mixture.
    *    Known catalysts are Mandragoras, Troll Molar and milk.
    **   The resultant item is dependent on the Y factor of XY Material.
    What do you get when mixing with other materials?  Those pursuing 
    theart should try it for themselves.
    One theory is that the Materials’ numbers are multiplied, and the 
    resulting mixture becomes enriched with Phozons.
    *    The amount of Phozons released is dependent on the X factor of XY 
    Chickens & Eggs
    Chickens of Erion are much more robust than other birds.  Their eggs 
    hatch without warmth, and chicks can grow into a chicken by eating only 
    3 seeds.
    Feed a chicken seeds and it will continue to lay eggs.  Chockens are 
    greedy and will attempt to eat all seeds on the ground, so be creful 
    around them.
    *    The egg placed by the character will become a chick after some time.
    **   After eating 3 seeds, the chick becomes a chicken.  Every subsequent 
         seed the chicken eats, it will lay an egg.
    ***  The chick/chicken may fail to eat seeds in its path.  This happens 
         when the seeds overlap or are too close to each other.
    The Origin of Sheep
    Depicted in the book of botany, Baromett, also called the Scythian 
    Lamb, is an amazing plant that grows sheep instead of fruit.
    The meat that comes from these sheep is at least as good as that of a 
    normal sheep that takes months to raise.
    In battle, where one’s life is always in danger, many soldiers hide 
    their valuables before fighting.  Defeat your enemies quickly before 
    they hide their treasure.
    What are Phozons?
    Phozons are forms of energy used as a source of magic by sorcerers as 
    well as elemental entities, like fairies.
    However, do not forget their beautiful shine is that of a creatre’s 
    life, as Phozons only appear when a living creature passes away.

        man cannot withstand”.
    **  Another name for The World Tree is Yggdrasil, which is Mercedes’

        fire’s source, aka chaos.
    SLEEP in mother’s arms

        it becomes fully-grown.

        in the aftermath

    My dear children,
    Eventually an inevitable curse and death shall be thrown upon the two 
    of you.
    *   Inway is cursed into a frog and is again cursed when he obtained 
        the power of Darkova, as even pain turns to pleasure.
