    At least Sho got to be right.

    But as I pointed out, we didn't know the real Yda so...meh. This one is Yda now as far as I'm concerned. Why not.


    And Papalymo being seen as disposable is because he was. He had the least to do in the story, being the token Lala black mage more than anything else. Well, I'm sure he'll come back in some capacity too. They all do. It's like friggin DBZ up in here.

    My lady did! -- It was compelling enough to write a Rocl-level page of theory on it is all. As soon as I saw she had no recorded age on the lore book, it was easy to confirm sister with certainty. Just was wrong on the real Yda's death timing.

    I think it's perfectly fine to call her Yda or Lyse from here on out; I can't imagine some NPCs not calling her Yda or referring as to such.


    The entire trope of killing off a close friend to compel the main character to greatness is played out by years and years however. They could have done better. D:

    Papalymo will be our NPC guide for Interdimensional Rift - Omega. I'm sure of it. Something something his aether is bound to Shinryu and somehow he was flung into a rift in the void, which is where Omega is and now he's there.

    he is actually a she, Yda herself? Seems to have the same face as Lise. Brainwashed sister battle incoming?!

    I thought that too but maybe it's just a really feminine guy? Like 99.9% of SE villians?

    I don't think they'd double down on female Garleans postering as males

    Did they ever actually reveal Nael Van Darnus's backstory in game? Like I remember reading outside of game that it was actually Nael's sister posing as him but I don't remember them ever actually explaining it in game. I mean of course you see that Nael is female in coil but I can't remember them explaining it and leaving everyone wondering why the fuck she was female.

    They explained in the official lore book.

    Na, I do think its likely Yda is alive because that trope is probably something SE would love. That big bad shogun is the Emperor's son. It wouldn't make sense for the Emperor's son to be Yda, its not some random legatus even if they decided to do that trope again. Also I think they said the Viceroy, Zenos is supposed to be a Grade A piece of shit. They don't want him to be sympathetic at all.

    sometimes a smile is really just a smile, that theory is a huge reach

    regardless, it's already been nipped in the bud thanks to datamining

    That's some heil hitler levels of aryan right there.

    I can get on board with the "Yda is still alive somewhere" theory though. That seems plausible enough, if you don't got the corpse then you can't prove she's really dead. That's how things work in this game.

    All Lalas look like they're plotting evil shenanigans.

    Content of the story aside(which is too many times too tropey but can be likable or not depending on taste), I cannot express enough just how bad the writing is. It's a constant lesson in how not to write a story. Idk, I guess I have higher expectations from people who have such large funds on their hands for the project...

    Scooby Doo writing
    This was hilarious.
