    Part I .  Database Side Quest (A001)
    ==================================================================
    
    This walkthrough is as spoiler free as possible, especially since this game
    contains some powerful scenes, and we'd really hate to spoil it for anyone.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    1.0  Overview  (A010)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The database side quest starts with your first scene and cumulates towards the
    end of the game with a prize.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    1.1    Quest Rewards (A011)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The database side quest takes you the entire game to complete.  The prize for
    completing the database is the Kibisis which gives the wearer 3 boost, 1500 HP
    and 300 EP.  It's a nice item, well worth the work it will take to get it.
    Unfortunately, it is not available until almost the end of the game, so whether
    you go for it then, or during game cleared, is up to you.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    1.2    Database Updates, when and were. (A012)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The database is updated continuously during the game and occurs either
    automatically at mandatory points of the story, or by accessing certain items
    and chests.
    
    - The automatic updates cannot be skipped. We've included in each
      section of the walkthrough on what information is added up to at
      that point.
    
    - The other updates occur when you find certain easily missed items
      and files.  Fortunately, unlike a number of side quests in this
      game, this is another case where the Encephalon, and U.M.N. is your
      friend an you can always go back to get these easily missed chests and
      items.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    1.3    Deducing what you missing  (A013)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    To get 100% completion before the end of the game, you need to fight both at
    least one of the optional Bosses, find Suou's Uzuki's PDA, and acquire all the
    Database Update Files, which includes retrieving all the Federation Reports on
    Miltia.  If you do not have 100% Database completion after fighting your next
    to the last battle, check on the following categories see what you have missed.
    You can also check the Special items list by pressing the square button while
    in the items inventory list. You should only have one set of ??? at this time,
    and this should be true as of shortly after your last mandatory E.S. Battle.
    
    The following table shows what categories are updated through each Update file,
    PDA and Omega.  You may use it to find the missing data.

    This chapter takes place on the Floating Landmass.  You acquire the last of
    your tutorial points here.  Finally, a category is at 100%. You can go get
    Shion's swimsuit from Pedea Island.  But before you do that, go around and talk
    to everyone on board the Elsa.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    2.4.1  Pedea Island (Encephalon Dive) (UF02)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    If you decide to go back for Shion's Swimsuit, and have spoken to the
    professor, and he's received a postcard, you get access to one of the optional
    bosses.
    
    Search the Dark Professor's lab, and pay attention to the chair in the corner.
    Take the elevator that appears down to the Dark Professor's Basement. You will
    find a segment door, a chest and a grave.  You will not be able to enter the
    segment door, or read the gravestone until after you have beaten Erde Kaiser
    Sigma, but you can open the chest to get Update File 02.
    
    Update File 02, provides 7 items to the Town Report section:

    This is one of the commonly missed Update Files. It is located on the Floating
    Landmass in the Ancient Temple.  Search the third floor. It is the second floor
    with the movable bridges.  When you come off the elevator, you will see four
    crystals floating to above the area to the left of your screen.
    
    You need to move the first bridge up to that platform.  Examine the first
    console you see.  This console is located on the same platform as the elevator
    to this floor.
    
    This should move the bridge up to the area with the four crystals.  Fight the
    Gnosis that appear, and grab the update file.
    
    This file updates the Locations category.

    2.6    Chapter 5:  Exploring Miltia City (A026)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Once you've gained control of Shion again, wander down to Miltia City. It's
    currently under Martial Law.  You can find Update Files 8 and 9 here as well
    as Federal Reports 1, 2 and 6.
    
    2.6.1  Update File 8 (UF08)
    
    This update file is fairly easy to find.  It is located in the East Sector
    of Miltia City. This is the sector you enter first.
    
    NOTE:  There are a number of side quests here so take time to explore, look
    through the binoculars and recognize various sites from Episode I, talk to
    people, play with items, etc.  Some of these quests cannot be accessed after
    the middle of Chapter 7, so you might want to do them now.
    
    As soon as the street makes a sharp Left, enter the building on your right.
    You will need to go up 2 flights of stairs to get to the chest.  There is
    another side quest on the roof involving a balloon.  And yes, you should now
    have another Database Category at 100%.

    2.6.2  Retrieving Federal Reports 1, 2, and 6.      (FedRep1)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    If you just retrieve them as you find them, you will retrieve the Federal
    reports in this order.
    
    Federal Report 06. Find Federal Report 06, first.  It's on an observation deck
    in a trash can in the West area of Miltia City.
    
    NOTE: Looking through the binoculars on the deck, you will see the park
    featured in KOS-MOS's Subconscious Domain from Episode 1. You can also start
    the Seven Moons side quest here by talking to the young man, Andy, sitting on a
    park bench in the area below and to the right of the observation deck.
    
    Federal Report 01. Find Federal Report 01 in a console located on a side area
    in the Western block of the city where you talk to Erin and Julia.  You need to
    talk to them to do the Seven Moons sidequest.  Enter the door behind them, and
    talk to the maintenance worker, Lancaster in the side yard near the stairs.
    Destroy the console for him.
    
    Federal Report 02. Find this Federal Report 02 in the Northern Block.  This
    time it is behind Bailey.  Destroy both consoles.  One of them hides a chest
    with a really nice E.S. item.
    
    NOTE: You can also talk to Lodge here.  Once you do you can go back and talk to
    the Andy again. You will probably need to run back and forth a few times
    between them and Erin and Julia before the seven moons side quest is almost
    complete. It nets you some nice items in Chapter 9, so you might consider doing
    this one.

    2.6.3  Update File 9 (UF09)

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    This chapter nets us the often missed Suou Uzuki's PDA, as well as potentially
    Update File 03.  Update File 03 requires the input of all 8 Federation Reports
    into the computer in the Elsa's Lab, so it is possible you will not be able to
    complete it until Chapter 8.
    
    NOTE: This is your last chance to complete any of the various side quests.
    Complete them before you enter Labrynthos, as you will not have another chance.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    2.8.1  Suou Uzuki's PDA (SUPDA)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    This is another of the easily missed database update items.
    
    You look for this one once you are going back into Labyrinthos to rescue Shion.
    Retrieve Suou Uzuki's PDA from the staff room after you acquire the Staff room
    key.
    
    The Staff Room. The staff room is located near to the Save Plate in Area 13.
    
    To get to this Save Plate, enter Area 13, move right across the screen and down
    another corridor to the characters right.  You will enter a hall containing
    Segment Address 5 (behind some cabinets), stairs down, and doors to the extreme
    left of the screen.  Enter the doors.  This corridor contains a Save Plate, and
    the locked Staff Room.  At the end of the corridor is a locked gate.  This gate
    can only be opened from the other side.
    
    NOTE:  If you are entering this area using the encephalon, there will not be a
    save plate here. Check the door though, as you might have gotten the key
    earlier.
    
    
    The Staff Room Key. The Staff Room key is located down the corridor on the
    other side of the locked gate.
    
    To get to the Staff Room Key, go back out to the hall with Segment Address 5.
    Take the stairs down to the next floor.  Follow the corridor around and through
    a storage area.  Run up a flight of stairs, and pass by a windowed
    interrogation room.  Follow the corridor around until you see the Save Plate on
    the far end of the corridor behind a barred gate.  Take the first hall on your
    right.  Go around the corner and destroy the boxes.  The Staff Room Key is in a
    chest in one of the first boxes you open.
    
    Go back out to the main corridor, and walk towards the Save Plate.  Access the
    console next to the barred Gate.  Save. Unlock and enter the Staff Room. Go to
    the desk and check out the shining object.  Take the PDA.

    2.8.2   Finding Federal Reports 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8     (FedRep2)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    You need to find all the Federal Reports for 2 quests.  One is to acquire
    Update File 03, the other is showing the reports to Loria who is now on the
    second floor of the Acute Neurosis Treatment Facility.
    
    You cannot find a majority of the Federal Reports until after the Third Decent
    Operation has begun.  If you have been following this walk through, you have
    already found Federal Reports 1, 2, and 6.  If not, see section 2.6.3 (FedRep1)
    for details.
    
    Again, we will be covering these in order of discovery.  You can start
    gathering the rest of these reports as you leave Labrynthos for the Old Church.
    
    Federal Report 04. This report is located under some debris in the West area
    near the door to the building where you destroyed a console to get Federal
    Report 1.  It is on the left side of the building.
    
    Federal Report 03. Find Federal Report 03 after destroying the U-TIC transport
    in West Miltia, near where you found Federal Report 6 in a trashcan.
    
    Federal Report 05. Receive Federal Report 05 from McDowell as he lies dying
    under his favorite pillar.
    
    Federal Report 07. This report is located in the burning area outside the
    transport gate.   This one is located under burning rubble in the upper left
    corner of the section.
    
    To get there, exit the transport gate and run right to the ramp.  At the top of
    the ramp, move towards the back, under the Marque.  Take the Ramp down to the
    left as far as you can go.  You will see something shining on the ground. Take
    it.
    
    Federal Report 08. This report is also located in the area outside the
    transport gate.  Go back up to the Marque area, and take the sidewalk to the
    right down to the street level. As you enter the street, turn left. Wind around
    the rubble to the Lower right hand side of the screen.  You will see something
    shining on the ground.  Take it.
    
    You get Update File 03 by finding all the Federal Reports and entering them on
    the console in the Robotics Lab on the Elsa.
    
    The story does not allow you to do it much before Chapter 8 though.  You can
    take all 8 files to Loria on level 2 of the Acute Treatment Facility for the
    Decoder.

    you can try beating the optional Boss Omega ID any time after you get through
    with the last fight on the Durandal.  If you manage to beat it before the end
    of this chapter, you will perhaps have an extra percentage point in the

    you can also wait to Game Cleared to go back and complete everything.  Use the

    3.0      Optional Bosses: Some Strategies (A030)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Even though this is not a strategy guide, you have to beat Omega ID to get
    database complete before you fight the final boss.  Although there are plenty
    of stragegy suggestions out there by now, we've included a few to help out.
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    3.1    Omega id   (OMID)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Beating Omega id adds one item to the Unknowns in your database.  You can start
    trying to beat Omega ID any time after you get the Weapons Development Area key
    in Chapter 8.  It helps to beat Omega ID before you try to beat EKS, as you
    gain access to the Dark EK ether.
    
    The Brady Games Official Strategy Guide has some good clues on how to do this,
    although even with their excellent strategies, I wasn't able to beat it until
    Game Cleared during my first pass through the game. I beat it early in Chapter
    9 during my second pass.
    
    You probably won't be able to beat him until you get the best possible
    equipment near the end of the game, as this fight is tough.  Make sure you have
    D-Kill R and D-Kill C installed on any close range attack craft. The E.S.
    Reuben comes to mind.  Also, make sure you have at least one Craft with
    D-Sensor, and consider or adding D-Revenge, D-Counter and D-Charge accessories
    as well.   Any of the D-Frame or D-Half disks are other good accessories to
    consider.
    
    Guard often and frequently.  Omega
    
    I kept trying to beat Omega ID almost as soon as I got the Key to his area. One
    time I almost beat Omega ID with only the E.S. Zebulin left, and all she  did
    was Charge every round and Revenge and Counter when attacked. I kept forgetting
    to do that with a full quota of E.S's, so I may have beaten Omega sooner.
    
    The key to this fight is to watch Omega's wandering immunities, and then
    charge, attack or use recovery items appropriately.  You can set your line up
    formation so that your toughest hitter is on top to take advantage of Combo's,
    although this tactic isn't always useful due to the wandering immunity problem.
    
    You don't get game over for losing, so keep trying various combinations of
    accessories until you get one that works.
    
    Winning fight on Omega ID, gives you:

    3.2 Some thoughts on beating Erde Kaiser Sigma (A032)
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    This fight is just fun.  You can fight him as early as Chapter 3, but it will
    be late in the game before you can beat him.  Too bad his Ether Attack doesn't
    have any smart remarks attached.  He doesn't net any database points, so if you
    are having problem beating him, wait until really late in the Game or Game
    Cleared to try.  You might not be able to beat him until after Game Cleared,
    but keep trying.
    
    The winning strategy varies on how you have been developing your characters
    skill lines, as well as what accessories are available to your lead characters,
    and who you enjoy putting on the front line.
    
    Again, this is a case where the Brady Games Official Strategy Guide is good,
    but there are a number of different strategies to beat him.
    
    He gets easier to beat if at least one character has either Best Ally or
    Safety, and someone has a sensor to see where his weakest points are.  You
    could also use chaos's final special "Beloved Gospel" if he has acquired it.
    
    If you have All 3 EK ethers, just hit Sigma at his weakest point with the
    appropriate Ether attack.
    
    If you don't, you can get through his initial shields if your characters have
    high enough Ether attacks of the appropriate ethers to get through his weak
    points.  However, if you decide to do it that way, you miss the fun comments
    that come with the various EK attack ethers though.
    
    You can also have your characters load on the appropriate accessories such as
    Heaven's Door, and Nine Stones, if you have them, and use their Final Ethers if
    you have them.  He's vulnerable to Ether attacks after he puts up his first set
    of shields, so you might want to start out with your heavy hitters and then
    bring in the Heavy Ether attack folks once he puts up his shields.  You can
    also start with your folks with the strong Ether attacks.

    PART II:  DATABASE ENTRIES (B001)
    ==============================================================================
    
    ==============================================================
    (B00X) Introduction & Explanation
    ==============================================================
    
    The Database Entries chapter includes an alphabetical and  a "by number/
    category" list of all entries, followed by all the Xenosaga Episode III - Also
    Sprach Zarathustra Database contents from a 100% complete clear game Database.
    Most of the time, Database Updates just add additional text to existing entries
    or create new entries. However, there are some occasions where text passages
    are changed completely. I will add those replaced parts in an additional
    section at a later time.
    
    You will notice that the entries of the tutorial section are only represented
    by their titles. I decided to do this as they don't hold any actual story
    content. I made some corrections to a few entries, all of which I'll list in a
    subsection at the end of the Database entries section.
    
    Each entry comes with a unique number shown as "(DBXXX)," this code can be used
    for searching and cross-referencing inside this document.
    
    Of course, all actual entry contents taken from the game are copyright Namco
    Bandai or MonilithSoft, so reproducing any of the text for non-private use is a
    violation of copyright law.
    
    Now, please enjoy!!!

    An elderly resident of the Dabrye Mine on Miltia. Originally a labor immigrant
    from another star system after Miltia became a republic, he worked as a mine
    laborer along with his son, Tethlla.
    
    However, the degradation of working conditions that resulted from the transfer
    of mining rights from the Miltian government to the U-TIC Organization led to a
    increase in anti-U-TIC Organization sentiment. As a result, he became a central
    figure to the quasi-resistance organization against the U-TIC Organization.
    
    Though that resistance was later defeated by the U-TIC Organization, Aizen, in
    his love for the mine, remains there today with his granddaughter, Mai, hoing
    for the mine's revival.
    
    People like Aizen, as immigrant workers not aware of Miltia's transformation
    from theocracy to republic, busied themselves with complaints about their own
    circumstances, viewing the world with a somewhat narrow-minded perspective.

    The miniature albino dog that Jr. began to keep on the bridge of the Durandal
    after the death of Albedo.
    
    "He's an albino, so he's Alby," is the reason Jr. gave for the name, though it
    also suggests lingering thoughts of Albedo.
    
    The dog is very friendly towards Jr. and Shion, but stubbornly continues to
    dislike Gaignun.

    Abel is the material (real) form of the higher-dimensional existence U-DO
    (which exists without the concept of an individual, and is defined exclusively
    in the subjective terms by the observer), whose discarnate (imaginary) form is
    the Ark.
    
    He acts in the capacity of the control device for Omega, which uses the Zohar
    as its principal energy source. Yuriev used Abel, to wield the power of Omega
    to use as a weapon against God.
    
    U-DO first assumed Abel's form during the time of Lost Jerusalem, at the same
    time as Nephilim appeared, suggesting some link between the two.

    (DB006)-Albedo Piazzolla
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Named after the alchemical process of whitening as put forth in C.G. Jung's
    "Psychology and Alchemy." URTV unit number 667, is a variant with milky white
    hair.
    
    A being with recuperative abilities that surpass even nanomachines in
    rebuilding speed, he is practically immortal.
    
    Like Jr., he is a survivor of the URTV (U-DO Retro Virus) force that was
    artificially created to oppose U-DO. He developed a mental instability as a
    result of U-DO waveform contamination during the Miltian Conflict and destroyed
    the URTV force to which he belonged.
    
    Born as conjoined twins with Jr., the two strongly felt like they were a part
    of each other's body even after they were separated.
    
    His U-DO contamination was the result of the collapse of that psychic bond,
    caused when Jr. (Rubedo) shut his mind out in fear of U-DO going out of
    control. Albedo consequently felt that he had been betrayed and abandoned by
    his other half--his own brother. His obsessive manner when dealing with Jr. was
    a result of the psychological shock he had received at that time.
    
    His half-mad personality was the result of U-DO contamination, but even before
    that incident he was unable to understand the fear of injury or death
    experienced by others due to his immortal condition. Perhaps as a reaction to
    this, he developed an acute fear of rejection and solitude, and was
    pathologically with forming relationships with others.
    
    After the Miltian Conflict, he was found lying unconscious under the central
    shaft of the Song of Nephilim by Sellers, who had attempted to escape from
    Miltia by forcing the Song to surface.
    
    At this time, Albedo was half-dead, presumably as a result of being hit by
    waveforms which had been released by Nigredo, the URTVs' failsafe and acting
    executioner.
    
    Once he finally recovered from the attack of his would-be executioner, Albedo
    turned to the U-TIC Organization and Ormus. He joined forces with Margulis and
    Sellers to obtain the Y-Data which Joachim Mizrahi had left, although Albedo's
    true objective was a complete link with U-DO (which is the only possible way of
    granting his desire for oblivion). Together with Margulis, he doggedly pursued
    MOMO, Mizrahi's final creation, in order to revive the Zohar that slept on
    Miltia.
    
    His unnatural fixation on MOMO was the result not only of his desire to seize
    the Y-Data, but also of the relationship shared between Jr. and the girl on
    whom MOMO had been modeled, Sakura Mizrahi.
    
    Sakura and Jr.'s friendly behavior caused Albedo to feel lonely and excluded,
    eventually leading him to enviously wonder how he might interact with others in
    the same fashion. However, being unable to understand others' pain, and
    consequently unable to touch their hearts, he could only express his emotions
    in a twisted manner.
    
    His seemingly cruel behavior towards not only MOMO, but the Kirschwassers as
    well, was another warped reflection of his envious feelings towards such unity
    and emotional communion.
    
    Having obtained the Y-Data, revived Miltia, and finally linked again with U-DO,
    Albedo was assimilated into U-DO, becoming one with its waveforms and awaited
    oblivion at the hands of Jr.'s anti-waveforms.
    
    While Albedo's true desire was unity with Jr., his choice of death was the only
    means of escaping from the impossibility of that reality--motivated by the
    thought that, if unity is impossible, oblivion is the next best thing.
    
    He achieved oblivion at Jr.'s hands by accepting U-DO's characteristics into a
    part of himself--in his mind, this must have been the best was to get close to
    Jr.. His choice to rely on Jr., even though he could have used his URTV ability
    to cause a mutual annihilation effect with U-DO on his own, is further proof of
    this notion.
    
    While oblivion did grant a portion of his wish, it was also undeniably an
    effort to escape the reality he faced.
    
    Wilhelm negotiated with Albedo, proposing to unify him with Jr. Albedo
    recognized his true desire and was reborn as a Testament. Albedo initially
    attempted to fill his role as a Testament, but instead chose to perish with
    Dmitri, who had merged with U-DO through Omega.
    
    He attempted to use the power of the Testament to perish with Dmitri, in order
    to protect Jr.; however, Gaignun took his place at the last minute, effectively
    fulfilling Albedo's true desire--achieving a true psychic union with Jr..

    Former Vice Chief of Vector Industries' First R&D Division's KOS-MOS Project
    Joint Operations Systems Development.
    
    Joined Vector'S First R&D Division in T.C. 4764 after graduating from the
    University of Bormeo. While two years older than former Chief Shion Uzuki, he
    is one year her junior at Vector.
    
    Acting as Vice-Chief for the duration of Shion's time at Vector, he continually
    supported Shion and garnered her trust and that of his subordinates with his
    diligent work ethic. The term "simple" and "honest" describe this affable young
    man perfectly.
    
    He was appointed R&D Chief after Shion's departure from Vector and was sent to
    the Galaxy Federation Consolidated Advanced Technology Testing Ground on Fifth
    Jerusalem.
    
    He cares for Shion, but due to past events concerning Shion and her former love
    Kevin Winnicot and his own personal insecurities regarding Kevin, he does not
    often express his thoughts and emotions.
    
    His family appears to be quite wealthy, but he prefers to avoid relying on
    them. His hobby is fishing.
    
    He matures, albeit gradually, through the time he spends with Shion and the
    others, ultimately showing his manhood by excoriating Kevin for using Shion and
    KOS-MOS, and brushing away the last doubts in Shion's heart.
    
    Although the distance between his and Shion's hearts has drawn noticeably
    closer since the incident on Michtam, his true worth as a man will be measured
    from hereon, in how he grows closer still.

    His official rank is Galaxy Federation Naval Commander. He was positioned
    aboard the cruiser Woglinde as vice-captain in order to investigate the
    disappearance of planet Ariadne. His true identity, however, is as a worker for
    the U-TIC Organization--Ormus.
    
    Created as a tool of war by the Life Recycling Law a year after the outbreak of
    the Zoar Incident, he was
     unable to find meaning in his life even on the battlefield.
    
    Unable to reintegrate into society after the war's end, he became isolated and
    eventually began committing heinous crimes. After rejecting his third
    personality reconditioning treatment, his feelings of betrayal drove him to
    murder his wife, daughter, and countless others, and he was always haunted by
    specters of the dead.
    
    However, upon joining the U-TIC Organization after being scouted by Margulis,
    he managed a startling transformation. He successfully completed any mission
    given to him by Margulis, be it attacking Vector's research facility on planet
    Carioca in order to steal KOS-MOS, or directing the string of experiments which
    caused the disappearance of planet Ariadne.
    
    Following the Gnosis attack upon the cruiser Woglinde, he joined Shion and the
    others as a spy for the U-TIC Organization, until the point when he mutated

    (DB010)-Wilhelm
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Founder and CEO of interplanetary conglomerate Vector Industries. Having
    created the U.M.N., a giant network unifying all of space, and built facilities
    for hyperspace navigation, the company has become the de facto nucleus of all
    civilization, with a firm grasp of all the latest technology.
    
    Once the Galaxy Federation Executive Committee Director, his origins and
    personal history are shrouded in mystery. Furthermore, in addition to his
    official role, he command the secret order of cloaked figures known as
    Testaments, attempting to meddle with the destinies of Shion, KOS-MOS, and the
    others.
    
    The only ones to understand Wilhelm's fixation with Shion and KOS-MOS--his
    purpose and motivation--are the Testaments, and even they may not truly
    understand his plans.
    
    Supposedly, his office is constantly filled with the music of Wagner.
    
    Calling chaos Yeshua an reading the movements of the Compass of Order and
    Chaos, he plots to change the very shape of the world. In trying to bend the
    movement of the God-ordained compass towards his own desired conclusion, he
    makes himself a traitor unto God.
    
    What he is attempting to accomplish can be inferred from the words he once
    spoke to Kevin as a boy: eternal recurrence. Millennia ago, when the will of
    humanity resonated with chaos' power of Anima-- the failsafe of the
    universe--the universe's destruction was ordained.
    
    Wilhelm chose eternal recurrence through Zarathustra as a means of averting
    that destruction--rewinding time to the past and living an eternal cycle.
    
    Vector, Ormus, the Testaments, and finally KOS-MOS and Shion--he waited until
    the moment that all the necessary factors were lined up.
    
    It is unsure whether the current cycle is the tenth recurrence, or even the
    hundredth, but the distortions created by the repetition gradually changed
    people's consciousness. Ultimately, mankind rejected his power, choosing to
    progress to the future by their own will.
    
    While his methods differed from Shion's, Wilhelm undoubtedly sought to save the
    world just the same. Or perhaps what he truly wanted was a revolution in
    mankind's consciousness, brought about by the cyclical recurrence of time.

    Representative Trustee of the Galaxy Federation Miltian Autonomous State's
    special foundation, the Kukai Foundation. Like Jr., he is a survivor of the
    URTV (U-DO Retro Virus) force that was created to combat U-DO.
    
    Named for the alchemical process of blackening as put forth in C.G. Jung's
    "Psychology and Alchemy."
    URTV Unit Number 669, a variant possessing the name Nigredo (pitch black).
    
    Presently hiding his identity as a URTV, he fills the role of Representative
    Trustee for the Kukai Foundation, along with Jr..
    
    Black-haired, with dark green eyes. Calm in personality, he shoulders the trust
    and expectations of the Foundation members and holds powerful political
    influence. He was lauded for his defense and unification of victims prior to
    the enactment of the Species Preservation Act.
    
    He possesses the power to control the thoughts of others and the power of
    hypnotic suggestion (interference with a person's consciousness), using his
    voice as a medium.
    
    If Jr. is the practical controlling force behind the Kukai Foundation's
    activities, it can be said that Gaignun is the political force. It is through
    the combined efforts of them both that the Kukai Foundation's continued
    existence is made possible; without either, it would fail.
    
    Taken in by Helmer after the Miltian Conflict, Gaignun inherited the name of
    Zoze Kukai upon establishment of the Foundation. Incidentally, "Zoze Kukai" is
    the name of a fictitious industrialist invented by the Second Miltian
    government in order to pool special activities capital.
    
    Unlike the other URTVs, Gaignun was not programmed to react to U-DO waveforms.
    His true role was to act as a failsafe in the event that a powerful variant
    went berserk--specifically, the elimination of Jr..
    
    Furthermore, Dmitri Yuriev planned to extend his own life by transplanting his
    psyche into Gaignun, due to Gaignun's special powers. After his body was taken
    over by Dmitri, Gaignun was forced to work towards Dmitri's goals, regardless
    of his own will.
    
    This ultimately brought about the military occupation of the Durandal and the
    awakening of Abel's Ark.
    
    Although Gaignun was asleep in the far reaches of Dmitri's consciousness, he
    was made well aware of Albedo's true desire to be rid of both Gaignun and
    Dmitri, and made it a reality by forcing Albedo's consciousness into Jr.'s
    body, so he could annihilate himself along with Dmitri.

    Canaan was install with Program Canaan, and the recording component
    ("personality") used was that of Lactis, a subordinate of Ziggy during his
    time as a Federation Police officer.
    
    From the fact that Canaan's memories of the Federation Police returned even
    after the recording of the Federation Police returned after the recording
    component had been reformatted, it was deduced that the memories and
    consciousness of Realians exist, like humans', within the realm of the
    collective unconscious.
    
    The special characteristics of Program Canaan allowed him to secure a bypass
    route to Wilhelm's power. Canaan, cleverly using Voyager's desires, connected
    Voyager's consciousness with that power, causing Voyager to overflow, and
    destroying him along with Canaan's own body.

    Those who hold the position of Patriarch within Ormus--the core of the
    Immigrant Fleet--are the protectors of the Zohar; they usually possess the
    ability to link with the Zohar and draw out a portion of its power. While this
    can be said of all the "people of Zohar" who protected the Zohar during the
    evacuation of Earth, due to the thinning of the bloodline over the ages, very
    few people retain this ability, even within Ormus.
    
    He planned to monopolize control of the Original Zohar sleeping within Old
    Miltia in the hopes of solidifying the Immigrant Fleet's superiority over the
    Galaxy Federation. This was likely the result of both the historical background
    of the Federation's oppression and exploitation of the Immigrant Fleet as a
    minority, and the connection held by Sergius XIV with the Federation's
    Salvators.
    
    Sergius controlled the military of the Old Miltian Hierocracy, which was
    largely comprised of Fleet Immigrants. He moved the Mizrahi Cerebral Sciences
    Research Center, a division of the Federation's Zohar Research Organization,
    from planet Michtam to Old Miltia, renaming it the U-TIC Organization and
    placing it under Professor Mizrahi's administration. Top-secret anti-Federation
    lans were developed behind the scenes there. Wilhelm's actions as Ministry
    Cabinet Chair lay behind the fact that the Federation cast a blind eye upon the
    establishment of the U-TIC Organization.

    "Kirschwasser" is also the term for cherry brandy.
    
    Broadly interpreted, both MOMO and the Kirschwassers are Realians which
    Professor Mizrahi built for the sake of his daughter Sakura; the circumstances
    surrounding their construction, however, are visibly quite different.
    
    MOMO is the entity closest to Sakura and was born complete. The Kirschwassers,
    on the other hand, were merely tools of the experiment, made so that MOMO could
    be completed, and then to be disposed of. To the Kirschwassers, MOMO is the
    subject of both admiration and envy.
    
    That is not necessarily to say that many of the Kirschwassers that traveled
    with Albedo felt jealous of MOMO.
    
    The reason the Kirschwassers never left Albedo's side, no matter how harshly he
    treated them, was because of a strong resonance with the close, yet
    untouchable, existence in Albedo's life, and the feelings similar to
    unconditional love that it inspired.

    Though his crimes are officially listed as the work of an individual, he was in

    summoned and controlled Gnosis in an area under special Vector control, the
    S-Division, motivated Shion Uzuki to think that Vector and the U.M.N. might be
    connected with the Gnosis phenomenon, and to begin her investigation along with
    Scientia.

    (DB035)-KOS-MOS
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    A female-shaped battle android developed by the interplanetary conglomerate
    Vector Industries. A being created entirely from mechanical parts,
    exceptionally rare in this area of advanced Realian technology.
    
    Prioritizing the three fundamentals of logic, efficiency, and duty, she
    protects her creator Shion unconditionally. She is equipped with an "Artificial
    Personality OS" in hopes of facilitating smooth communication with others, and
    her tone is that of an android subservient to humans. As she is actually just
    prioritizing logic and efficiency, however, she can often be difficult to
    handle.
    
    KOS-MOS is the term applied to the entire anti-Gnosis combat system; it stands
    for "Kosmos Obey Strategical Multiple Operation Systems."
    
    Why were KOS-MOS's repairs that took place on the Miltia of the past within
    Shion's deep memory, a type of imaginary space, reflected in the real world?
    One reason is the fact that actions in one portion of the U.M.N., the deep
    memory--that is to say, the collective unconscious-- are equivalent to those in
    the real world according to one definition, where the difference is strictly
    subjective-- brought about by the observer's recognition of it as such.
    
    Though KOS-MOS awakened as Mary Magdalene as a result of T-elos' defeat, Mary's
    original memories and characteristics have undergone a transformation, leading
    to the creation of an entirely new personality which is both Mary and not Mary
    at the same time. This is fundamentally analogous to Sakura's transformation
    into MOMO.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Former Chief of Vector First R&D Division's KOS-MOS Project Joint Operation
    Systems Development.
    
    She entered Vector Industries's First R&D Division in T.C. 4763 at the age of
    18. Though two years younger than Allen, her accelerated pace made her one year
    his senior at Vector.
    
    Following the Gnosis terrorism, she left Vector and enlisted the help of
    Scientia in pursuit of the truth behind that string of incidents and the hidden
    dangers of the U.M.N..
    
    Only a few people know that she has a congenital, unique sense that has allowed
    her to see into imaginary space since early childhood--impossible, for most
    people. The holographic glasses she wears were a present from Kevin during her
    time at Vector; they serve not to correct her vision, but to control this
    ability.
    
    However, as this sense of hers is not active all the time, and as she "has
    gotten used to it," she removes the glasses when they present an inconvenience
    to her daily life.
    
    Her consciousness has existed since the time of Lost Jerusalem as the Maiden,
    when she enjoyed a close relationship with Mary Magdalene. Her brief vision of
    the distant past was not through KOS-MOS's memory, but through her own.
    
    It can be deduced from KOS-MOS's last words that Shion's former self died as a
    result of being caught up in some larger occurrence, and that KOS-MOS (Mary)
    had been unable to protect her.
    
    After discovering Allen's feelings for her on Michtam, Shion took the first
    step towards her independence. Shion, for whom Kevin's existence was so large
    that it had occluded Allen's feelings for her until then, might have felt that
    Allen, who lived in a world entirely opposite from her own, could better
    provide her heart a place of respite than Kevin, whose circumstances mirrored
    her own.
    
    A traveler headed to Lost Jerusalem. The end of a journey spanning thousands
    upon thousands of years, setting out from a new dawn to rebuild the world. The
    intersection of countless consciousnesses, and what awaits them there...

    His name in life was Jan Sauer.
    
    The final rank he held in life was detachment captain for the 1875th Special

    During his time in the detachment unit, his and Voyager's relationship was that
    of superior and subordinate. Voyager sensed the loneliness in Ziggy's heart and
    invited him to join the Testaments, but Ziggy decisively rejected Voyager's
    temptations by shooting himself in the head.
    
    It is possible that Ziggy's heart knew peace for the first time after Voyager
    was sent away after the destruction of Michtam. No one knows how much longer
    his brain will survive. However, for as long as he can, he'll do what he was

    Different from the consumer models, this body was designed specifically for law
    enforcement use and features exceptional nerve impulse reaction speeds,
    resilience, and resistance to bullets. Of course, special machinery is required
    for its maintenance, and the upkeep costs are considerable.
    
    Though Ziggurat Industries has long since closed their now-obsolete production
    lines in this era of the Galaxy Federation's Realian technology, the individual
    combat and defense capabilities of cyborgs still trump those of combat
    Realians, and Ziggurat Industries supposedly still supplies replacement parts
    to official organizations that continue to choose their product.
    
    Ziggurat Type 8 models typically transfer their neural infrastructure from a
    Realian base body to they inhabit while off-duty into their cyborg body when
    deployed on a mission. Ziggy, however, remains in his Type 8 body at all times
    out of personal preference, and does not require a Realian base body.

    URTV unit number 666, Rubedo.
    
    He was born from the same embryo as URTV unit number 667, Albedo.
    
    He has the ability to activate the special anti-U-DO waveform mode Red Dragon,
    which causes mutual destruction upon contact with U-DO. In order to contain
    that dual-edged power, Jr. has half-subconsciously halted the development of
    his own body. However, as this mutual destruction extends only to Jr. and the
    observational terminal part of U-DO, from a cost-benefit perspective, his
    powers cannot be called a complete anti-U-DO solution.
    
    It is difficult to think that Dmitri, having personally experienced direct
    contact with U-DO, would have created the URTV's without realizing this.
    Perhaps it is more likely that Jr. and his kind were created out of a need to
    accumulate data before Dmitri could ascend to an existence equivalent to U-DO.
    
    In fact, Dmitri, who had been monitoring Albedo's subconscious through Canaan,
    obtained the Y-Data, revived the relic of God, and proceeded to the Ark in
    order to become His kin.
    
    Jr. was able to reunite with Albedo through Gaignun's sacrifice. Although

    his relationship with Albedo is like the two sides of a single being.

    After becoming aware of Margulis's treachery during the Miltian Conflict, Jin
    received information from his father Suou and began his own secret-information

    also began during this period.
    
    While he shared a deep connection with Pellegri during his time in the

    differences in their relative stations. It is a particularly sad conclusion
    considering that his mother Aoi, like Pellegri, had inherited the bloodline of
    the Immigrant Fleet, and the same blood clearly ran through Jin.

    provoked the fears of the Federation.
    
    Though initially rigorous in his work, after Suou was contacted by Ormus, he
    began to issue reports to the Federation government which served the interests
    of Ormus--the Immigrant Fleet--in return for medical treatment for his wife
    Aoi. The U-TIC Organization's budget was expanded at Suou's recommendation,
    leading to increased armament for Miltia's former autonomous military--the
    principal force of the U-TIC Organization.
    
    Increasingly stricken by feelings of guilt as a result of this arming of the
    U-TIC Organization and Miltia's former government, which had long resented
    their incorporation into the Federation, Suou made contact with Jin, then a
    member of the Federation Special-Ops, and leaked secret information regarding
    the U-TIC Organization--Ormus.
    
    Jin passed that information to Lieutenant General Helmer of the Special-Ops
    Command on planet Zavarov, and a troop drop operation onto Miltia was planned.
    At the same time, the secret information was also passed to Dmitri at the

    The name "T-elos" is derived from the ancient Greek word for the ultimate
    state of being or limitless power.
    
    Over 80% of the body structure is based on the reanimated body of Mary
    Magdalene, recovered from Rennes-le-Château, and thus can be rightly described
    as flesh and blood.
    
    The reason why T-elos nevertheless vastly surpasses KOS-MOS Version 3 is
    because T-elos interfaces directly with the U.M.N., regulating the material
    domain data.
    
    Intending to assimilate the consciousness of KOS-MOS, the half of Mary that
    exists in imaginary space, and become a single whole, T-elos is instead
    defeated by the awakened KOS-MOS.

    At that time, the Zohar was excavated from Lake Turkana and shipped to Toronto,
    Canada, where its analysis began. After it had been discovered that the Zohar
    produced tremendous energy in response to a specific brainwave wavelength,
    everyone had become fixated upon finding a method to extract it. Systems
    programmer Grimoire Verum completed the control program Lemegeton based on the
    ancient language that had been unearthed from the same ruins as the Zohar.
    
    The system went out of control during a control experiment, and the young girl
    participating in the experiment became the first to disappear. The
    disappearance phenomenon continued to expand, eventually erasing all of Earth
    from dimensional space. The girl who disappeared at this time was none other
    than Nephilim.
    
    From the fact that the girl's disappearance coincided with the appearance of
    Abel, it can be deduced that the two share a cause-and-effect relationship.
    
    The Song of Nephilim is the result of amplifying the wavelengths created by
    Lemegeton through the use of a giant tuning fork. That system was designed and
    built by Joachim Mizrahi.

    The prototype for the 100-Series-Multi-Observational Realian; officially known
    as the "Multiple Observative Mimetic Organicus." Developed in order to make
    contact with and observe the Gnosis, which are only perceptible via "a certain
    special sense."
    
    Developed after the transgenic type and the 99 Kirschwasser test bodies, MOMO
    can aptly be called the combined product of all the galaxy's latest technology.
    
    Built by Joachim Mizrahi. Her appearance was modeled on Professor Mizrahi's
    late child Sakura Mizrahi.
    
    Though she was given the bodily appearance of a child by Joachim Mizrahi, this
    is only a temporary measure until the final adjustments can be made to her
    functionalities. She was designed to be transferred from her current body once
    its capabilities and central nervous network are completed, allowing her the
    possibility of growing into an adult woman in the future.
    
    The transgenic type is a hybrid of human genes and ALC Alcumia--essentially,
    the genes of the Realians. Consequently, MOMO, in her finalized form, shares an
    affinity with human cells, and would potentially be able to conceive a child.
    
    Regular 100-Series Multi-Observational Realians have only their anti-Gnosis
    capabilities in common with MOMO; as products manufactured by the Galaxy
    Federation government, their abilities are similar to those of regular
    Realians, making MOMO an entirely unique entity.
    
    MOMO, left at the dawn of a new era after the events at Michtam, began to work

    and the 100-Series system, the development of high-efficiency nanomachines,
    written works on Realian technology, and the fundamental research concerning
    the Gnosis phenomenon.
    
    Joachim, who had been born on Abraxas, founded the U-TIC Organization after
    being contacted by the secret  society Ormus. He was subsequently engaged in
    the reconstruction of the Song of Nephilim, known as the invention of madness,
    and the development of Proto Merkabah and the 100-Series Observational Units.
    
    At the time of the Federation'S third descent operation on Miltia, Joachim
    forced the Song of Nephilim into overload. He cut the connection between Miltia
    and its surroundings and the U.M.N. in order to contain the expansion of the
    sudden Gnosis phenomenon and the Zohar, the cause of the conflict, to Miltian
    space.
    
    Though he was supposedly a madman, had Joachim not contained things in this
    way, the Gnosis phenomenon would have likely spread at an accelerated pace and
    have reached all regions of the galaxy much earlier.

    Furthermore, Lactis was one of the early-era Realians that had been installed

    As a result of Project Canaan's top secret development within Vector, even its
    development process is unknown; absolutely no materials remain concerning it.
    
    Because the Program is built into the base system within the brain stem at the
    construction phase, even the Realian in question is unaware of its presence.
    
    It can be deduced that Lactis himself was unaware of the fact that he carried

    Bodies of donors were revived and retained as weapons of the Galaxy Federation

    revived and turned to a battle Cyborg after his death.
    
    Donors who were affiliated with special forces or the military were assigned to
    similar duties after their revival, but donors without such background were at
    times assigned to harsh manual labor or dangerous terraforming activities. Some
    were even assigned as housekeepers. Many cyborgs were superior to humans in
    abilities, but were stripped of their rights and placed in a very low social
    position.
    
    Because of these issues, the number of aspiring cyborg donors gradually
    decreased, and the Galaxy Federation adopted a negative stance toward cyborg
    donation. Presently, the Life Recycling Law has become osolete with the
    introduction of Realians, which are far superior to Cyborgs in performance.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Anti-Gnosis observational Realians equipped with the 100-Series system, which
    combines D.S.S.S. and the Hilbert Effect.
    
    They are young-looking Realians designed by the late Professor Joachim Mizrahi
    and based on the MOMO prototype. They were mass-produced by the Contact
    Subcommittee, a governmental institution of the Galaxy Federation.
    
    In the process of developing his MOMO prototype, Professor Mizrahi manufactured
    a large number of data-collection test beds called Kirschwasser. MOMO was the
    100th model produced.
    
    At present, the 100-Series system requires several dozen tons of system
    capacity; theory holds that it cannot be miniaturized to human dimensions. The
    100-Series System, as used by the Galaxy Federation Army, consists of the Main
    Unit (a mainframe-like device measuring 10 cubic meters) and a production model
    100-Series Realian used as a personal device.
    
    Because the 100-Series system has similar specs to those with which KOS-MOS has
    been equipped, it is possible there is some sort of connection between them.
    
    As part of the late Professor Joachim Mizrahi's design concept, 100-Series
    Observational Units resemble young children completely. It is said that, when
    the Contact Subcommittee took over development after Joachim's death, they
    carried over the external features to ensure that all of the systems were
    working properly. Since it was impossible to reconstruct the systems that had
    been tuned for the youthful bodies, it is more likely that they simply went
    into mass production as is.

    A limited perception field generation system developed as a method of reaching

    space.
    
    It makes interaction by real-world humans possible by translating
    imaginary-space pulsations into a "common language" and intentionally expanding
    the accessible area of imaginary space (normally Planck-scale sized). This also
    allows the use of everyday weapons against Gnosis, who ignore the laws of
    physics.
    
    Usually, KOS_MOS can create a field of about 300,000 kilometers, but when using
    all her power, that field can expand to several million astronomical units.
    MOMO and 100-Series Observational Units can create a field with a range up to
    100 kilometers using a special large-scale amplifier; without this device ,
    however, they are limited to only a few hundred meters.

    Of note in the Miltian Charter is Article Four, which speaks to the social
    standing of Realians, and was enacted because of the outbreak of Realian
    violence during the Miltian Conflict.
    
    Because of the outbreak of Realian violence, the number of human victims
    declined. The Federation government declared, "Realians also feel stress, which
    gave rise to the outbreak of violence," thus stipulating "human" rights to
    Realians.
    
    However, even though their basic rights had been affirmed, Vector, the
    Realians' manufacturer, did not remove their control devices, which contain a
    self-destruct code. The Charter can therefore also be viewed as written

    The U.M.N. was developed by Vector after Lost Jerusalem disappeared; its

    Lately, a large number of Gnosis encounters have been reported on the U.M.N.

    The mastermind behind Gnosis terrorism, Grimoire Verum, has also used the
    U.M.N. for various events, leading some to speculate about a connection between
    the U.M.N. and the appearance of Gnosis.
    
    "Unus Mundus" refers to C.G. Jung's theory of the collective unconscious; it
    can explain the inconsistencies of synchronicity and the EPR paradox from a
    physics standpoint, as well as the mutually complementary connection and
    relationship between two minds and between mind and matter.

    Introduced as a proposal in T.C. 4590, this bill was approved and implemented

    Those who had registered as donors while alive had their bodies transformed
    into cyborgs after their deaths, but they were used as mere tools, with no
    human rights. Furthermore, the notion of "recycling" was interpreted as
    extending to the effective utilization of genes, and the bill was seen as
    including human clones and genetic and/or cranial nerve modification. This
    brought with it such benefits as broader living spaces and safety.
    
    However, with an increase in the number of mentally-imbalanced individuals,
    people like Ziggy becoming Federation government equipment, and humanoid
    weapons like URTVs experiencing issues of societal standing, the Act was
    repealed in T.C. 4754.
    
    Another reason for repealing the act was that, due to genetic modification,
    more and more people could adapt only to certain environments, and the human
    race was becoming biologically fragile.
    
    The number-one reason the Life Recycling Act was repealed, though, was that the

    Legally they were considered equipment, but they possessed intelligence and

    Their basic human rights were acknowledged after the Miltian Conflict, however,

    manufacturers had fitted them with "emergency control codes" for merchandise
    control and crisis management purposes.

    emulators, the Durandal would appear at the coordinates where the Woglinde had
    gone down from a Gnosis attack.
    
    Composite video footage of the Durandal returning fire upon the 474th Spec Ops
    Fleet after its ambush, made to look like the Durandal had been responsible for
    sinking the Federation ship Woglinde, was leaked throughout space.
    
    The Kukai Foundation, and by extension the Miltian autonomous government,
    caught in the trap, were surrounded by the Federation fleet, and those related
    to the incident were put under arrest.

    The name of the plan enacted in conjunction with Plan 31, employed by the U-TIC
    Organization in order to strip the Second Miltian autonomous government of
    their vested rights. It entails the use of not the U-TIC Organization's own
    fleet, but of Federation forces manipulated through the government.
    
    By disseminating throughout space, composite video footage apparently showing
    the Durandal attacking the Woglinde, the Kukai Foundation, and by extension the
    Second Miltian government, were framed for treason, resulting in the
    mobilization of the Gedalya Region 422nd Fleet.
    
    Later, through operatives within the Federation, the U-TIC Organization
    proposed stripping the Second Miltian autonomous government of its vested
    rights, attempting once again to get their hands on MOMO, the key to the
    Y-Data.
    
    It is apparent that Margulis, who directed the operation, considered
    temporarily giving up MOMO to be a part of his predicted scenario.

    likely that other existence was U-DO.

    the Zohar emulators at their facility on planet Ariadne. However, a space-time
    anomaly was produced as a result of the Zohar emulators going out of control,
    and Ariadne completely disappeared along with 1.5 billion inhabitants.
    
    While it is unknown why Ariadne had been chosen as the location for the
    connection experiments, it was on this planet that the experiments' director,
    Andrew, had lived in a sham marriage. Here, he had committed murder repeatedly
    and had been placed in a personality reconditioning facility; it may be that he
    specifically chose Ariadne to be the land of his martyrdom.
    
    There are confirmed reports of fierce winds on the planet's surface immediately
    before its disappearance, as well as lights in the sky similar to a
    multi-layered aurora.
    
    It is held that only a small number of spaceships managed to escape, including
    those owned by the U-TIC Organization; thereafter, Ariadne became a Gnosis
    Cathedral Ship, made to wander the far reaches of space.

    under Federation pressure and moved to an autonomous state form of government,
    with a representative appointed by the Federation government as head of state.
    
    However, this status of essentially being under the control of the Federation

    With this conflict, the Miltian star system became isolated from the U.M.N. and

    The Zohar Emulators, created by Professor Joachim Mizrahi, have many varied

    As with the Original Zohar, however, it has been confirmed that a space-time
    anomaly appears when they go out of control.
    
    The attract inhibitor prevents this loss of control and inhibits the activity
    of the Zohar Emulators.

    He was born attached at the back of unit number 666, Rubedo. These type of
    twins are called conjoined twins, but conjoined twins created by artificial
    insemination are extremely rare. When they were separated, their abilities were
    shifted in opposite direction, but Rubedo and Albedo's ability to stop or
    accelerate cell replication are fundamentally the same.
    
    Rubedo was born with the ability to stop the cell aging process, but he was not
    immortal. Albedo was born with the ability to accelerate cell replication to
    amazing speeds; even if his head or heart were completely destroyed, it would
    always be regenerated. Albedo was not aware, that Rubedo and Nigredo did, of
    course, not share this ability. When he found out, he was greatly shocked to
    learn he was the only one to have an immortal existence.
    
    This special ability is activated not by control of the cells of one's own
    body, but by accessing the structure of the U.M.N. itself.
    
    Albedo's mental state has been unstable from the start, but it has been even
    more unstable ever since the day he learned the he could not die. To Albedo,
    this world was nothing but a painful prison in which he would have to continue
    living even if his loved ones were to die. His greatest fear was losing his
    other self, Rubedo.
    
    And when Rubedo released his hand, cutting off the mental link, Albedo came
    into contact with U-DO, and finally stepped past the point of no return.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The 669th variant URTV to be born at the Yuriev Institute. Because he was born
    with black hair, he was named Nigredo, a name taken from C.G. Jung's
    "Psychology and Alchemy," in which "nigredo" refers to the process of a
    substance turning black. He was the last of the 669 URTV units to be created,
    and possesses far stronger mental waves and mind-control ability than standard
    URTVs, as well as the ability to repel U-DO waveforms.
    
    Even as a child, he was calm and mature. He often spent time with Albedo and
    Rubedo; however, because of their strong connection, he sometimes felt left
    out.
    
    Nigredo was assigned two special missions. One was to prevent the Red Dragon
    from going out of control and to bring it down if necessary. This mission was
    also assigned to URTV unit number 668 Citrine. The other was a secret mission
    closely related to his father, Yuriev.
    
    However, Nigredo abandoned this mission and shot Yuriev to death. The details
    of this incident are still unknown.

    Of the 669 URTV units created at the Yuriev Institute, units number 001 to 665
    are considered standard URTV units.
    
    Since the URTVs are based on Dmitri Yuriev's genetic information, the standard
    units all have the same hair color, face and body type as Yuriev. They almost
    completely lack a sense of self and individuality, unlike variant URTVs. Also,
    the possess weak anti-U-DO waveforms and are easily affected by it.
    
    The phenomenon of URTVs transforming into infected URTVs was confirmed within
    Sakura's subconscious domain. the visualization of Sakura's fear as U-DO
    waveforms caused standard URTVs to unexpectedly become infected, but Rubedo and
    the other variant URTVs were unaffected.
    
    Many standard URTVs look with envy and malice upon the variant URTVs, who were
    born with strong anti-U-DO waveforms and special abilities and receive special
    treatment.

    Due to induced mutations, they were born with special abilities; they have
    exponentially more powerful U-DO anti-existence waveforms and mental waves.
    
    The hair color of each is unique, as well, and they were named after these
    colors. Their names were taken from C.G. Jung's psychological terms for the
    "reddening," "whitening," "yellowing," and "blackening" processes.

    One of the space fleets that escaped Earth when Lost Jerusalem disappeared.
    During an extended period of nomadic existence, the fleet's scope expanded and
    split apart, and each splinter fleet emigrated to a newly discovered settlement
    area.
    
    At the start of the T.C. 4000s, it reunited with another fleet that had escaped
    from Earth--a group that had already formed a united organization of nations in
    the form of the Galaxy Federation. The two groups began mutual exchanges, but
    their backgrounds and cultural disparities were too much to bridge. Most
    importantly of all, the Immigrant Fleet was in possession of the Zohar. This
    led to a history of wars and truces that has repeated itself countless times.
    
    In the story, the Immigrant Fleet is mostly perceived as identical to Ormus,
    but this is not always true. The influence of Ormus doctrine has been diluted
    amongst some Immigrant Fleet splinter groups, and many have begun their own
    form of self-rule. These groups have advanced a policy of reconciliation with
    the Federation, and they would later join the Federation organization. It would
    appear that the Immigrant Fleet does not consist entirely of pious worshipers

    The C.P.C., or the Communication Promotion Committee, is a subgroup of the
    Federation Parliament. Dedicated to the administration and the promotion of the
    U.M.N. and the communications industry.
    
    Originally, it was part of the Public Safety Commission. However, Dmitri
    Yuriev, who would later serve as the new committee's Representative, proposed
    that it be split off.
    
    Yuriev used his authority to form the fictitious Descendants of Nestorius
    terrorist group and to place assorted pressures on forces within the Federation
    Parliament that opposed his power. The Communication Promotion Committee also
    held close connections with the Federation Police Information and
    Communications Section; the verbal clout wielded by its Representative had a
    major influence on the structure of the police themselves. This fact was likely
    aided by the committee's history as a splinter group from the Public Safety
    Commission.

    A company that developed its business around the production and sale of

    The bodily structure of a synthetic animal is largely composed of the same
    materials as a Realian, s synthetic human. However, Nexus does not produce any
    humanoid Realians.
    
    As loss-of-control accidents and human-rights issues piled up around humanoid
    Realians after the Miltian Conflict, the production and sale of synthetic
    animals and expansion of the pet industry became a far lower-risk approach to
    stable profits.
    
    What's more, since a sharp decline in fertility has led to purebred animals
    being bought and sold at high prices, the family-friendly price structure of
    Nexus's synthetic animals is now part of the reason that the series has been
    continually popular for several centuries.

    In the latter half of the T.C. 4600s, Immigrant Fleet Patriarch Julius XVIII
    proposed that planet Abraxas, which was in possession of the Zohar, should be
    split with the Galaxy Federation and governed by both entities. However, at the

    (DB309)-Zohar Project
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    A major anti-Gnosis project implemented by the Galaxy Federation government and
    affiliated organizations.
    
    It originally began with research into using the Original Zohar as an energy
    generator, but the project's coverage was partially altered in order to deal
    with the Gnosis phenomenon and its rapidly accelerating expansion. Currently,
    the Contact Subcommittee is playing the central role in its implementation.
    
    As the name suggests, the Original Zohar is at the center of the project;
    salvaging it has become urgent business.
    
    The 100-Series system, the KOS-MOS Project, and the U-DO system that the U-TIC
    Organization has been researching are all part of the achievements of the Zohar
    Project.
    
    Once Dmitri Vuriev's survival had been confirmed after the space-time anomaly
    in Miltian space, he took command of the project and pressed Salvator-faction
    Representatives to transfer project leadership from the Contact Subcommittee to
    the military. The content of the project soon took a strikingly different
    direction, leading to the development of Merkabah, Omega Res Novae, and the
    "T-Weapon."

    (DB310)-U-TIC Organization
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Official name: The Unknown Territory Intervening and Creation Organization. Its
    previous incarnation, the Cerebral Sciences Research Center, was founded by
    Joachim Mizrahi; it was Joachim who proposed it be restructured into the U-TIC
    Organization.
    
    After becoming the U-TIC Organization, the group continued its research into
    the Original Zohar as an energy generator and weapon, as well as performed the
    development of 100-Series Observational Units, the Hilbert Effect, and combat
    Realians.
    
    Aiming to rule the galaxy through command of the Zohar, the group then rebelled
    against the Federation government and set off the Miltian Conflict. However,
    Labyrinthos was overrun by the Galaxy Federation descent operations, and the
    organization's mastermind, Joachim Mizrahi, fell to his death.
    
    After the Miltian Conflict, it vanished from the center stage of history, but
    the group itself survived, setting up base on the planetoid Pleroma. Gathering
    information and building up its military power in secret, it leapt back onto
    the center stage in order to obtain the Y-Data that had been sealed within the
    100-Series Observational Unit prototype, MOMO.
    
    Ostensibly, the organization was founded by Joachim Mizrahi, but in truth,
    everything was under the direction of the Ormus Patriarch.
    
    As it was reconstructed into the U-TIC Organization, the group expelled nearly
    all Federation government officials and researchers, who had been stationed
    there as inspectors for the Cerebral Sciences Research Center. It cemented its
    internal staff with members of Ormus and the Old Miltia hierocracy; Hyams (a
    business affiliated with Ormus) joined the group, taking Vector's place in
    weapons development and sponsorship.
    
    At that time, even Federation Colonel Margulis, U-TIC's supreme commander, was
    already a member of Ormus. From this, one can see that a sizable number of
    Ormus members had been embedded within the Federation'S government and
    military.

    A fleet under the command of the U-TIC Organization's Margulis that primarily

    The fleet was mobilized to retrieve the Zohar emulators stored on the Woglinde,
    but failed to arrive before the emulators had been taken by the Gnosis.
    
    However, the fleet was placed on standby in the area on the orders of Margulis,
    who had surmised that the Kukai Foundation would move to investigate the
    destroyed Woglinde. It would later engage the Durandal there.
    
    Margulis did not issue a standby order to the 474th Spec Ops Fleet in order to
    have them defeat the Durandal. He called for the standby to create a situation
    wherein the Durandal would engage "something" in that region--an engagement he
    could them record.
    
    The U-TIC Organization would later fabricate an image of the Durandal and the
    destroyed Woglinde, throwing the Kukai Foundation and the Miltian autonomous
    government into its trap. The 474th Spec Ops Fleet took some damage during its
    engagement with the Durandal, but still successfully completed its mission.

    (DB322)-E.S.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The general term for humanoid mobile weapons loaded with a Vessel of Anima.
    
    Their cockpits can be either single- or two-seat, depending on wether or not
    firing control needs to be divided between a pilot and a co-pilot. Most units
    equipped with a large amount of weaponry are two-seat; due to their specialized
    functionality, Ormus units are single-seat.
    
    The size of an E.S. is not greatly different from that of a standard A.M.W.S.,
    but its fighting ability can be an order of magnitude greater. With the right
    combination of weaponry and pilot, an E.S. can hold enough combat power to be a
    match for a whole division of A.M.W.S. units.
    
    The chief reason given for this is the complete difference in the quality of
    the energy it uses for its operation, as well as the method by which that
    energy is supplied. A.M.W.S.s, like A.G.W.S.s, operate via pulse energy
    transferred from heir mother ship, making them highly reliant on their U.M.N.
    connection status and the condition of the mothership. This leads to the amount
    of energy that can be supplied in a given amount of time to be necessarily
    limited.
    
    This holds especially true when the mothership has been destroyed in battle; in
    such a case, basically the only recourse for a unit is to operate using its
    internal condenser and auxiliary co-generator. However, since the firearms and
    logical drive installed in each unit were designed under the assumption they
    would be receiving a large supply of pulse energy from a mothership, it becomes
    impossible to operate everything at full spec.
    
    On the other hand, since E.S. units operate on energy supplied by the Zohar via
    the Vessel of Anima interface, their supply of energy is inherently limitless.
    they are not reliant on the status or location of a mother ship, which makes
    their operating radius and weaponry they can use in battle practically
    unlimited. (Of course, it is rarly the case that they use weaponry so overly
    enormous that it severely reduces their mass balance and mobility.)
    
    The only disadvantage is that an unqualified pilot is unable to link the Vessel
    of Anima with the Zohar and therefore cannot even start up the unit. There are
    only a very few qualified pilots in the entire galaxy; as a result, E.S.
    operation seems to be naturally limited to tactical-level operations.

    auxiliary, the generator--originally fully tuned to operate the Erde
    Kaiser--outputs a ludicrous amount of power; enough to operate all weaponry
    trouble-free at full spec without a Vessel of Anima.
    
    As it escaped from Zarathustra, the Asher restarted itself through this
    generator--despite having lost its Vessel of Anima. The generator is also

    The Unus Mundus Drive Operation System. said to be a control AI originally
    created as a U.M.N. navigational device, it was refitted by Joachim Mizrahi as
    a Zohar command device.
    
    According to Vector records, the history of link experiments with U-DO extends
    back to the Lost Jerusalem era; apparently, it has been recognized as a wave
    based existence since far before the development of the U.M.N..
    
    Even today, details on U-DO have not been revealed. It is thought to be a
    consciousness that exists in a different dimension from our own, and deeply
    intertwined with the space-time anomaly,touched off by the Zohar and its going
    out of control.
    
    The U-TIC Organization, knowing that certain people are able to make contact
    with this wave existence, gathered test subjects with this contact ability and
    conducted Zohar operational experiments.
    
    They tried to use them to complete a so-called "U-DO system," but in the end,
    it merely led to the Zohar going out of control.

    An Omega-type test unit of an interstellar strategic integrated weapon system,

    government from the Immigrant Fleet nation. The freshly rolled-out unit was
    seized during the Miltian Conflict by the U-TIC Organization from a weapons
    plant under Federation jurisdiction.
    
    Although the unit's miniaturized body successfully lengthened its continuous
    operational time, the maximum power of its installed generator far exceeds its
    endurance rating. As a result, it was completed with a continuous operational
    time lower than what had been assumed at the start of development.
    
    In order to ameliorate its fragility, the unit is installed with a system that
    will transform itself into a configuration that can withstand the power of its
    generator as it rises. This revolutionary system reads the pilot's nerve
    impulses and automatically executes the transformation as his reaction speed to
    the unit increases.
    
    Unfortunately, the potential of this unit rests entirely on the mental state of
    the pilot. Faced with the danger of it going out of control if the pilot's
    nerve impulses become unbalanced, it is currently in the custody of the Special
    Weapons Development Sector of the Consolidated Advanced Technology Testing

    (DB344)-Imaginary Space
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    There is a theory that the space we live in is composed of two realities (and
    nothingness): normal space, which we are actually able to perceive, and
    imaginary space, which proceeds along an imaginary temporal axis we cannot
    perceive.
    
    The concept of imaginary time itself is a theory devised by Hawking to explain
    the birth of the universe without the use of singularities--without relying on
    the existence of God. With it, one can picture a universe without any
    "beginning" (the Big Bang singularity) or "end" (the Big Crunch singularity),
    but instead simply composed of a multi-dimensional hyperspherical surface.
    
    In this story, the Gnosis exist along this imaginary temporal axis and
    intervene in normal space.
    
    --Link: Gnosis
    
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB345)-Gnosis
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Non-physical beings that exist in another dimension, perceived as aliens from
    the viewpoint of mankind. Ordinarily, they have not materialized, so physical
    attacks do not affect them. When they have materialized, their constituent
    matter seems to consist of things like water and sodium hydroxide; why such
    matter would hold hostility against the human race is unclear. They have many
    types of external appearances; for the sake of convenience, they have been
    named after mythological creatures.
    
    Since they exist in "imaginary space," cut apart from normal phenomena, all
    attacks on them using current weaponry based on the laws of physics are
    ineffective. When a Gnosis attack, however, it brings the part of it attacking
    into local normal space. The D.S.S.S. system was developed to take advantage of
    this and predict the area of normal space that would be created, but its
    performance has been below expectations.
    
    Later, the Hilbert Effect and 100-Series Observational Units were developed by
    Joachim Mizrahi, making it possible for people in normal space to interact with
    them.
    
    Space in this world is made up of normal space and imaginary space, placed on
    top of each other. If you picture normal space as matter, or the body, then
    imaginary space can be seen as consciousness, or the mind. The word "Gnosis"
    refers to all forms of existence in imaginary space.
    
    All things, not just humans, have an imaginary space component, so things like
    the "Gnosis planet" which appears in the story also exist. In imaginary space,
    all consciousness is in a state of full awareness, allowing things like
    "another person's animosity," for example, to be directly experienced.
    
    If a human comes into contact with the fear held by imaginary space and chooses
    to escape or reject it, he or she is Gnosified.
    
    At first, it would appear that they act in groups, but each one moves with its
    own consciousness of rejection, dissipation, and proliferation; they could be
    seen as wandering in search of a kind of salvation. One could say that this
    consciousness of rejection and dissipation is putting all of space in peril.
    
    Wilhelm is attempting to concentrate all of this--the negative consciousness of
    man--into Zarathustra, and to awaken the eternal recurrence in order to return
    once again to the world mankind hoped for.

    structures that spread out beneath the surface of Michtam; Shion's pendant,
    which has the same structure, is its control key.
    
    It was originally created with the goal of invading the world of God, but
    Wilhelm, who has the role of "protector of lower-dimensional space" (bringing
    lower-dimensional space to its conclusion), added its functionality as an
    eternal recurrence device.
    
    In order to set off eternal recurrence, one must have control over the power of
    God (the power of chaos). The awakening of each Anima, as well as the guidance
    of Mary, who shares an emotional bond with chaos, has all been for this
    purpose.
    
    As observation terminals for God, Abel and the Ark (i.e. U-DO), need to be
    sealed in lower-dimensional space. Consequently, the ability to induce them
    toward Zarathustra has also been added.

    Wilhelm's aides; each wears a different color of cloak. They are the post-death
    form of Kevin and the others; however, they are not reincarnations, but beings
    that have slipped the bonds of normal space--their bodies. They can exert their
    abilities by accessing normal space from imaginary space (their consciousness)
    and controlling its physical phenomena at will.
    
    By controlling physical phenomena, they also act directly upon the perception
    of those in normal space; you could see them as if they actually were there,
    even though your retinas would not be receiving any photons. Since they act
    directly upon the perception of their target, they will not appear in
    photographs or videos that rely on the action of photons (though they can act
    on these devices to appear in them).
    
    Once, long ago, a group of people that reacted purely to chaos' Anima power
    (whether these were previous incarnations of Jin, Virgil, and Voyager or the
    consciousness of other people entirely is unknown) guided the world to
    destruction.
    
    To form an anti-existence to these people who reacted purely to the power of
    Anima--the fail-safe of the universe--the consciousness of people were
    controlled and made to enter opposed-phase, resulting in the birth of the
    Testaments.
    
    Wilhelm does not need to shift everyone into opposed-phase in order to achieve
    his goal. once the mass had reached a certain critical mass, everything else
    will have their phases shifted in a chain reaction. The current Testaments are
    that certain critical mass.
    
    Wilhelm has forged a certain pact with the Testaments. This serves not just to
    have them do whatever he wishes, but also to supplement Wilhelm's temporal
    recurrence ability. (Just as the failsafe needs the power of Anima to work,
    Wilhelm needs the power of the opposed-phase Anima. Mary will serve as the fuse
    to ignite that power.)
    
    The rendezvous which Virgil shared with Febronia was everything to his
    existence. He wanted to feel that moment forever; he is who he is today thanks
    to Febronia's death--this is what h believed. Wilhelm presented Virgil with
    that eternal time.
    
    He also presented Albedo with the ability to make his original wish come true.
    On the surface, Albedo appeared to act only on the desire to destroy, but this
    was a form of separation anxiety; essentially, his real desire was to integrate
    with Jr..
    
    Jr.'s destiny was to be used as a pawn to Dmitri's elimination of U-DO; one
    wonders if Albedo knew that all along. Albedo's desire to unite with Jr. was a
    form of protective consciousness in action--with the power of a Testament, he
    could face off against Dmitri to protect Jr. and ultimately realize his
    original goal of sharing  consciousness with Jr. and gaining eternal rest. This
    is what Wilhelm presented to him, and that is what made him act.

    (DB367)-Song of Nephilim
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    One of the devices made by the late Joachim Mizrahi to control the Zohar. It is
    shaped like a giant inverted pyramid.
    
    It was once stored within Labyrinthos, headquarters of the U-TIC Organization.
    Shion saw its shape from he mother's hospital room.
    
    As the name implies, the Song of Nephilim plays a song (a wavelength) which
    cannot be heard by normal human ears. The song is said to attract the Gnosis.
    
    The Song of Nephilim are the words of God that were recorded in the Y-Data--one
    of the relics. A man named Grimoire Verum analyzed these words to create the
    program known as Lemegeton.
    
    Joachim reconstructed fragmented version of this program as part of the U-DO
    system. The wavelength it emitted included the word "Nephilim" in its
    human-audible range, so he named the system the Song of Nephilim.
    
    The Song of Nephilim was used in the Miltian Conflict 15 years ago; however, as
    it had not been tuned by Joachim, its power was insufficient to bring the Zohar
    into operation.
    
    The Song itself does not have the power to summon the Gnosis. The Gnosis appear
    simply because a door has been opened onto imaginary space as the result of
    U-DO activating in response to the people who have made fragmentary contact
    with it through the Song. In fact, the Gnosis that appeared around Miltia were
    actually caused by a fearful and isolated young Shion linking with U-DO and
    bringing the Zohar into operation.

    In most cases, people who come into contact with the Gnosis experience a
    phenomenon where their body turns white and shatters into pieces. Cases of
    people mutating into Gnosis after whitening, while rare, have been confirmed.
    
    During the Gnosis attack on the Woglinde, Shion and Andrew were attacked by a
    Gnosis and subjected to this whitening phenomenon for a short period of time.
    Both escaped with their lives, but Andrew would later mutate into a Gnosis.
    
    Despite the fact that everyone who has whitened will eventually Gnosify, Shion
    has continued to avoid this disaster even to this day. Whether or not there is
    a reason for this is unclear.

    The general term for a group of systems that searches for people with the
    special "factors" necessary to become a Testament, suitable for a Vessel of
    Anima. Its basic outline was devised by Vector.
    
    During the dawn of Realian development, it was installed in a very small number
    of units and integrated into their basic brain-stem systems. Regardless of
    their own will, Realians who have been installed with this program have the
    role of judging suitable people and helping them awaken their abilities.
    
    Although these Realians are few in number, that is simply relative to the total
    number of Realians that have been produced, especially taking into
    consideration that they were meant to be deployed across the entire galaxy.
    Development was conducted under top secret conditions within Vector; only a
    limited number of top executives knew of its existence.
    
    Realians with Program Canaan implants are recovered by Vector after they have
    fulfilled their given role. By the mid-T.C. 4700s, over 99% of them had
    completed their given task; however, "Canaan," who has another role, is
    reportedly still deployed somewhere in the galaxy.
    
    The data collected by one Canaan is immediately uploaded to Vector's database
    and automatically distributed to other Canaans. Certain types of data, however,
    have a barrier placed on them controlling their distribution.

    was smuggled onto Miltia upon the destruction of Michtam.
    
    Afterwards, it was subjected to repeated linkage-operational tests with the
    Original Zohar, the deployed to intercept Federation forces during the first
    and second Miltian descent operations. It was set to be deployed in the third
    descent operation as well, but once the Gnosis appeared, it was left at the
    hangar in the confusion.
    
    After that, it was once again operated by Sergius XVII upon his landing on
    Miltia. It was recovered by Dmitri Yuriev after Miltia's destruction and
    underwent final refurbishment based on the Y-Data.

    Though its a mobile weapon, it is also the main reactor of the Dämmerung, and
    it functions as the core of Zarathustra's control system.
    
    While other E.S.'s were constructed based upon data from the relics of God, the
    Joshua is a brand-new craft, constructed by Wilhielm himself.
    
    The Joshua can therefore be called half of Wilhelm's body. When operating as a
    mobile weapon, its combat powers far exceeds that of an E.S., but it also
    carries a weak point: when operating as Zarathustra's control system, its
    functionality and combat power are greatly restricted.

    These wavelengths affect not just Zohar operation, but also apparently the
    appearance of Gnosis. Grimoire used the wavelengths to control the Gnosis and
    set off Gnosis terrorism incidents.
    
    Lemegeton was fragmented into pieces during the Miltian Conflict and was later
    scattered across the U.M.N. Half a year ago, Grimoire collected all the
    fragments and put them back together, but it was once again lost upon his death
    after the Gnosis terrorism.
    
    Joachim created two Zohar control systems, the U-DO System and the Song of
    Nephilim, based on Lemegeton.
    
    In fact, Lemegeton is part of the ancient words that were left behind by a
    certain man--words that Grimoire analyzed and made into a program. The man who
    left behind these words several thousand years ago is chaos.

    In actuality, the data is a record of the words of God as inscribed by a person
    in ancient times; Joachim's analysis of these words was what enabled him to
    produce a multitude of research findings.
    
    Part of the recorded data includes U.M.N. transport code for Old Miltia, closed
    off 15 years ago, is recorded inside the data. Someone who obtained this code
    would not only be able to gate-jump to Old Miltia again, but would also be able
    to obtain the Original Zohar sleeping on Old Miltia.
    
    Consequently, a vicious battle unfolded between the U-TIC Organization and the
    Federation government over this Y-Data, with efforts on all sides concentrated
    on securing MOMO.
    
    After MOMO had been brought into the custody of the Contact Subcommittee, an
    attempt to remove the protection from the Y-Data and salvage it was undertaken
    at the U.M.N. administration center on Second Miltia; thanks to Albedo
    Piazzolla's plot, however, the analysis failed. That resulted in the data being
    leaked to outside sources, setting off the space-time anomaly in Miltian space.

    would perhaps be appropriate to respectfully refer to it as the original Erde
    Kaiser.
    
    According to the Professor, its design concept is "love, courage, friendship,
    justice, and everything else...," a heretofore unheard of ambition, and one
    unlikely to be heard of again. But despite its absurd appearance at first
    glance, it's actually a phenomenal machine. It's built obsessively tough, and
    its power is, without exaggeration, unmatched and unstoppable.
    
    Its most notable feature is its "combining" design, in which four
    parts--Fighter, Dragon, Tank, and Cutter--join together to form Erde Kaiser.
    (This is likely the true main concept as a machine.)

    The greatest Erde Kaiser ever and the most powerful robot in the universe,
    created by the Professor's archrival, the Dark Professor. The name [Sigma]
    contains the Dark Professor's fiery passion that this is a machine that
    encompasses all that is Erde Kaiser--the ultimate Erde Kaiser.
    
    [Sigma]'s most notable characteristic is the fact that it has a will. It can
    converse with its enemies and not only threaten or persuade them, but also show
    pride and insult them. Dark Erde Kaiser was viewed as an imitation and was
    never able to shake its reputation as being a copy of Erde Kaiser Fury. But
    [Sigma] is completely original, the embodiment of its creator's will. The above
    description is that given by the creator himself, the Dark Professor.
    
    But unbeknownst to many is the fact that, at the Professor's Robot Academy,
    back when it was located on the Kukai Foundation, amongst the rows of test
    machines lay a unit called Element DX which looked extremely similar to Dark
    Erde Kaiser [Sigma].
    
    Putting aside gossip, what truly deserves description is [Sigma]'s
    capabilities. With all of its capabilities three times Fury's, and its attack
    power a startling five times as high, it is a dramatic evolution in
    functionality.
    
    Its robust body is decorated with a tricolor design on an orange base, and it
    appears more than worthy to ascend the Erde Kaiser throne. From that sturdy
    frame, it unleashes its ultimate attack, "Supreme Emperor," with the power to
    rend space-time itself.

    Its advanced capabilities instantly made the first generation Erde Kaiser
    obsolete, and it is surely no exaggeration to proclaim that it made real the
    Professor's slogan:"Ultimate power. Absolute justice."
    
    The Fury's development concept was for it to be customizable, and by exchanging
    parts in individual modules it can take on a variety of very different roles
    such as close-range sword fighting (Sword Custom), special drill attacks (Drill
    Custom), and long-range projectile combat (Cannon Custom).
    
    This ridiculous imagination and the skill to actually bring it to life are the
    hallmarks of the Professor, undeniably the greatest mad scientist in the
    universe.
    
    As appropriate for a machine that would inherit the name Erde Kaiser--"absolute

    But regardless of its origin, its capabilities are undeniable. In line with the

    By the way, the Dark Professor's motto, "Powered by Darkness," is a somewhat

    (DB402)-History of Abraxas 01
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    In T.C. 4667, on the planet Abraxas in the demilitarized zone, a meeting was
    held in order to improve relations between the Galaxy Federation and the
    Immigrant Fleet. And there, in that place of discussion inside virtual space,
    an incident occurred in which the goodwill ambassador and diplomats were
    imprisoned.
    
    The Galaxy Federation Police 875th Special Ops Command dispatched a special
    investigation unit to the planet Abraxas with Jan Sauer as its captain.
    
    The name that came up as a suspect was Voyager. Besides that codename, nothing
    about him was known at all. He was a mass-murderer who had committed one
    heinous crime after another, targeting women and children.
    
    When Jan arrived at the scene of the crime, he initiated a dive into the
    virtual space and hurried to the location where the ambassador was being held.
    
    Near where the diplomats were being held, they came under attack by
    macrophages. That attack resulted in the deletion of one of Jan's comrades,
    Erich Weber.
    
    Being deleted in virtual space means death means death in the real world as
    well.
    
    At great cost, Jan's group arrived at the diplomats' location. But what they saw
    there was a group of young children performing self-deletion and ending their
    own lives.
    
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB403)-History of Abraxas 02
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    After the incident, the special investigation unit rejoiced when Erich
    miraculously came back to life. But the doctor who visited them--Sharon
    Rozas--declared that Erich's recovery was unthinkable under normal
    circumstances.
    
    Without finding even a single clue toward solving the ambassador kidnapping
    incident, a new mass-murder incident occurred. The target this time was the
    designer children known as Salvator's Children. The children had been
    embryos in a nursing plant, genetically modified and intended to be raised for
    important positions in government. Voyager was once again suspected, but the
    special investigation unit was unable to confirm it.
    
    Not long after the incident at the nursing plant, a party sponsored by the
    Torres Foundation was planned to be held inside the U.M.N.. even the head of
    the Immigrant Fleet, Patriarch Julius himself, was to be invited to this
    large-scale party.
    
    Wary of terrorism by Voyager, the members of the special investigation unit
    stood guard. Suddenly, Irene Torres, the president of the Torres Foundation,
    suffered a seizure. She spoke a series of mysterious words and then collapsed.
    
    Certain that this incident was Voyager's work, the special investigation unit
    moved to catch the perpetrator in a trap.
    
    Jan's team caught up to the suspect, Klaus, but he killed himself before their
    very eyes.
    
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB404)-History of Abraxas 03
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    To obtain information about the incident, Jan pushed aside Sharon's objections
    and performed a dive into Klaus' brain.
    
    Gazing into Klaus' memory, Jan's group learned that Klaus had been collecting
    something called endorphin programs and had been doing so in preparation for
    meeting someone.
    
    Jan once again visited Sharon's residence to hear the results of her
    investigation. Sharon told him that the endorphins he had obtained had the
    effect of stimulating activity in a certain part of the brain.
    
    Sharon also told him that both the diplomats and those who had provided DNA to
    the nursing plant had been pure-blooded Abraxas natives.
    The people of Abraxas, and all descendants of the Immigrant Fleet, are born
    with that part of their brain developed.
    
    Sharon, too, had the blood of the Immigrant Fleet in her veins. She told Jan
    that the citizens of Abraxas had once been called the People of Zohar.
    
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB405)-History of Abraxas 04
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    At the end of numerous difficult battles, the special investigation unit
    finally discovered Voyager's identity. However, the person they found was not
    the hideous monster they had expected, but someone they had never even
    imagined.
    
    Voyager said that he had the power of the Zohar, and that to fulfill his
    contract with U-DO he must gather large amounts of endorphins.
    
    Jan was certain from Voyager's words that his next target was the Pilgrimage
    Meeting, where large numbers of Abraxas citizens would gather.
    
    Sharon and Joaquin, too, were participating at the cathedral where the
    Pilgrimage Meeting was taking place.
    
    The Zohar began to glow, as if responding to the prayers of the participants.
    The space around it turned to crystal, and the participants disappeared, one
    after another.
    
    Voyager and Jan faced off before the awakening Zohar.
    
    To fulfill his contract with U-DO, Voyager ended the lives of his final
    targets--Sharon and Joaquin.
    
    For the first time, Jan saw Voyager's crime with his own eyes. The bodies of
    Sharon and Joaquin lay before him. His world overcome with despair, his fight
    with Voyager entered its final stage.
    
    But Jan stood no chance against Voyager the Testament. As his only method of
    resisting Voyager's will, Jan ended his own life.

    20XX A.D.
    A mysterious plate-like object was found at an archaeological dig around Lake
    Turkana, located in northern Kenya. The object, named Zohar, was responsible
    for the disappearance of Lost Jerusalem, forcing mankind to escape into outer
    space.
    
    4000 years later - T.C.4767
    
    The 117th Marine Division of the Galaxy Federation Army, with the space cruiser
    Woglinde as its flagship, was on a mission to investigate the disappearance of
    planet Ariadne.
    
    The anti-Gnosis android KOS-MOS was developed on the Woglinde in case of an
    attack by the mysterious enemy Gnosis. Shion Uzuki, the chief of Vector's First
    R&D Division, and development members were also on board for KOS-MOS's startup
    experiments.
    
    KOS-MOS's startup experiment was conducted repeatedly while the fleet continued
    their investigation, but the experiments were not going smoothly, and the unit
    was not ready for combat.
    
    Though frustrated with the failed experiments, Shion also felt resistance to
    KOS-MOS, left to her by her dead lover Kevin, waking up as a weapon.
    
    Assistant Chief Allen Ridgeley, who is in love with Shion, could only watch her
    silently.
    
    While investigating the area where the disappearance occurred, the Woglinde
    found an object thought to be the Zohar and stored it.
    
    Finished with the investigation, the fleet left the area.
    
    With the mission safely accomplished, the crew breathed a sigh of relief.
    
    Shion was attacked by the Gnosis that had infiltrated the ship. As she lost
    consciousness she saw an image of a mysterious girl that called herself
    Nephilim.
    
    Shion was helpless and knew she would die, but KOS-MOS self activated and saved
    her.
    
    She rendezvoused with Allen and Virgil after being saved by KOS-MOS and
    attempted to escape from the Woglinde.
    
    KOS-MOS defeated numerous Gnosis that attacked them, but during the battle
    KOS-MOS shot and killed Captain Virgil along with the Gnosis in order to save
    Shion.
    
    KOS-MOS felt no remorse for killing Virgil and told Shion, who was appalled at
    her actions, that she is a weapon.
    
    Shion was unable to accept what KOS-MOS declared and escaped from the Woglinde
    with Allen in the escape pod.

    Shion was rescued by a space cargo vessel, the Elsa, and met a boy named chaos,
    who possessed strange powers.
    
    In front of Shion, chaos disintegrated a Gnosis just by touching it. She was
    surprised by his power while chaos silently smiled at her.
    
    The captain of the ship, Matthews, accepted KOS-MOS's high-handed request and
    headed for Second Miltia with Shion and Allen.
    
    Meanwhile, the cyborg Ziggy was on a lone mission on the asteroid Pleroma by
    the request of the Galaxy Federation's Contact Subcommittee to retrieve the
    kidnapped 100-Series Prototype Realian MOMO from the U-TIC Organization.
    
    MOMO was targeted by the U-TIC commander Margulis due to the secret document
    known as the Y-Data that was imbedded into her subconscious domain by Joachim
    Mizrahi.
    
    Ziggy was able to safely rescue her and escape Pleroma with a small vessel, but
    was pursued.
    
    While on their way to Second Miltia, the Elsa detected Zggy and MOMO, who were
    under attack. They destroyed the U-TIC Organization's Auto-Tech and saved them.
    
    After conferring with Juli Mizraki, Ziggy and MOMO stayed on board the Elsa to
    go to Second Miltia.
    
    Later, the elsa rendezvoused with the heavily armed ship, the Durandal, that
    was investigating the U-TIC Organization. Shion and the others met a boy named
    Jr., who was a member of the board of directors of the special foundation known
    as the Kukai Foundation.
    
    Jr., with ties to the Second Miltia government, understood the situation
    surrounding MOMO and invited them to stay at the Kukai Foundation.
    
    They get a little respite at the colony owned by the Kukai Foundation courtesy
    of the representative director, Gaignun Kukai.
    
    Margulis, who had been watching them, created a trap for the Foundation in
    order to obtain the Y-Data that lay dormant in MOMO.
    
    By Margulis's scheme,the Foundation was surrounded by a Federation fleet on
    grounds of treason against the Federation. They were arrested and detained by
    the army, but they proved their innocence with the battle data recorded on
    KOS-MOS.

    They were safely released from the army, but Margulis had already ordered
    possession of MOMO.
    
    The man in charge, Albedo Piazzolla, was a URTV, a bio-weapon created during
    the Miltian Conflict fifteen years ago, and a man obsessed with Jr., another
    URTV like him.
    
    Albedo accepted Margulis's request and powered the Song of Nephilim, an
    invention of madness by Joachim Mizrahi, in Miltian space.
    
    Second Miltia and the Kukai Foundation were in danger from the swarm of Gnosis
    that appeared in Miltian space from the Song.
    
    MOMO was kidnapped by Albedo and taken to the Song of Nephilim when she stayed
    behind to treat the injured.
    
    Jr. was enraged when he found out that MOMO had been taken. Shion used
    KOS-MOS's phase transfer cannon to force the Song of Nephilim to appear in real
    space.
    
    They successfully entered it and saved MOMO while cornering Albedo. However,
    Albedo managed to escape when a mysterious cloaked individual known as
    Testament suddenly appeared before them.
    
    Albedo had gone mad and brought the massive factory, Proto Merkabah, into
    existence using the Y-Data fragments he acquired from MOMO.
    
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB409)-EPISODE I Summary 04
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Albedo tried to destroy Second Miltia with Proto Merkabah, which was powerful
    enough to take on the Gnosis.
    
    Shion and the others attempted to destroy Proto Merkabah from the inside to
    stop its attack. They successfully destroyed the main reactor at its center,
    which had fused with a Gnosis, but after losing its power source, Proto
    Merkabah started to slowly fall to Second Miltia.
    
    Albedo laughed at Jr. and left.
    
    KOS-MOS attempted to dismantle Proto Merkabah from the inside to stop it from
    devastating Second Miltia. She was successfully able to dismantle it, and Proto
    Merkabah disintegrated into numerous fragments.
    
    However, unable to get out of Second Miltia's gravitational field, the Elsa
    started to fall out of control as well.
    
    The Elsa was engulfed in the high temperature of the atmospheric plasma.
    
    In order to save the Elsa, KOS-MOS exited the vessel to deploy her protective
    shield around the ship. Shion tried to stop her, but communication with her was
    cut off.
    
    Although her body was burned by the frictional heat, KOS-MOS deployed the
    shield.
    
    As if responding to her powers, chaos' fists started to glow. The two powers
    surrounded the Elsa as white wings.
    
    The Elsa emerged in the sunrise, and from the bridge, Shion saw KOS-MOS
    standing on the ship.

    T.C. 4753. The Conflict that had broken out on Milia had already spread its
    flames of war across the entire planet. To destroy the source of the
    conflict--the U-TIC Organization--and to capture the Organization's founder,
    Joachim Mizrahi, the Galaxy Federation executed its Third Descent operation
    against the U-TIC headquarters of Labyrinthos.
    
    Also sent in to neutralize the Zohar Control System was the Federation's trump
    card, the URTVs - a special forces unit.
    
    Lieutenant General Helmer of the Galaxy Federation Special Operation Forces
    felt there was a danger in allowing contact between the URTV bio-weapons and
    the Zohar control device. He independently put into action asecret plan to
    protect the URTVs.
    
    With the cooperation of Vector's CEO, Wilhelm, Helmer sent in a new model
    mobile weapon, the E.S. Asher, and entrusted its two pilots, chaos and Canaan,
    with the task of reaching Labyrinthos.
    
    The E.S. Asher made it through the fighting and descended to the city streets,
    but at that same time the U-TIC Organization, pushed to desperation, activated
    the Song of Nephilim.
    
    The Song sent the streets of Miltia into complete pandemonium. Canaan and chaos
    found themselves under overwhelming attack from Realians and Federation
    soldiers that had lost their minds. A single Federation A.M.W.S. came to their
    rescue. Its pilot was none other than Shion Uzuki's older brother, Captain Jin
    Uzuki of the Special Operations Military Intelligence Unit.
    
    Via a certain method, Jin had obtained information regarding the Miltian
    conflict and had been heading for Labyrinthos in order to analyze it. Learning
    that his objective was the same as Canaan and chaos', they traveled together to
    the Labyrinthos main terminal.
    
    Commander Margulis of the U-TIC Organization appeared before them. To settle
    the matters of the past that bound them deeply together, Jin and Margulis
    crossed swords.
    
    Jin barely managed to fight off Margulis, but was badly wounded himself.
    Judging that he could not continue his mission, he entrusted the data he had
    obtained into Canaan's memory and bid them farewell.

    Later, the berserk Zohar brought about a space-time anomaly that pulled Miltia
    into the Abyss.
    
    Miltia was lost. Flashing forward 15 years from that event brings us to the
    present.
    
    T.C. 4767. After stopping the fall of Proto Merkabah, the Elsa landed safely on
    Second Miltia. Shion, Jr., and the others temporarily split up to attend to
    their respective tasks.
    
    Shion headed to Vector's Second R&D Division to turn over KOS-MOS. Jr. and the
    others headed for the U.M.N. Control Center to analyze the Y-Data that slept
    within MOMO.
    
    Finally free from their previous danger, Jr. and the others relaxed. But the
    mobile weapon team led by Pellegri attacked MOMO once more. To protect MOMO,
    the group ran into the city, but the enemy forces attacked them without
    hesitation and their escape routes were cut off one-by-one. They were saved
    from their predicament by Canaan in the E.S. Asher.
    
    Meanwhile, Shion finished handing over KOS-MOS and was reunited with her
    brother in the city. Shion felt a mix of emotions upon unexpectedly seeing her
    brother again, and was unable to be honest about her feelings. The events of
    the Miltian Conflict 15 years earlier had built a wall between them.
    
    The next day, with the cooperation of the Durandal crew, the analysis of the
    Y-Data began. As the representative of the Contact Subcommittee, Juli arrived
    at the Control Center in order to be present at MOMO's analysis procedure.
    
    MOMO rejoiced at seeing Juli again, but Juli held a complex mix of emotions
    regarding MOMO, who had been constructed in the image of her late daughter.
    Juli welcomed the arrival of Jr.'s group, but she was unable to hide her
    troubled feelings toward MOMO, the Realian girl who viewed Juli as her mother.
    
    The analysis procedure was expected to go smoothly, but a trap set by Albedo
    was triggered, and the Y-Data began to leak out.
    
    Juli and the others tried to prevent the exposure of the data, but their
    desperate efforts proved futile, and the Y-Data continued to leak out.
    Observing the situation from the depths of her own consciousness, MOMO
    shattered her own mind to sever the external link, stop the data flow, and
    protect Juli and Joachim's legacy. But her action had a great cost, and all of
    MOMO's functions shut down.
    
    Juli's desperate treatment barely managed to prevent MOMO's complete shutdown,
    but her mind had been shattered, and her consciousness would not return.

    Shion and Allen were at the Second R&D Division when they received a message
    from Jr. telling them MOMO's dire situation. They hurried to the Control
    Center.
    
    Shion joined up with Jr. and the others, and together they attempted a dive
    into MOMO's subconscious domain to recover her mind. The world into which they
    dove turned out to be memories of Sakura, the daughter of Joachim and Juli
    after whom MOMO had been modeled.
    
    In the world of MOMO's subconscious domain, Jr. re-experienced his memories of
    when he had been part of the URTV forces. His first meeting with Sakura, the
    days of training with Albedo and Nigredo...a flood of memories drove Jr.'s
    heart into greater and greater disarray.
    
    Finally, Albedo appeared before Jr. and tormented him over his betrayal of his
    comrades. Jr. exploded with anger towards Albedo for hurting MOMO and was
    unable to control his Red Dragon power.
    
    Seeing the two brothers, Jr. and Albedo, fighting each other--their own flesh
    and blood--MOMO began to resonate with Sakura's consciousness, which had been
    sleeping within MOMO's subconscious domain, and finally awoke. But the, in
    fact, had been Albedo's true objective.
    
    With the awakening of MOMO's consciousness, the Y-Data leaked out and Albedo
    finally obtained what he had sought for so long. With the Y-Data in hand,
    Albedo restored the passage to Old Miltia, unlocking the sealed away planet to
    accomplish his personal objective.

    Miltian space was in disarray, filled with a multitude of hopes and ambitions.
    To quell the chaos, Second Miltian Government Representative Helmer

    was called back to Vector's headquarters, the Dämmerung. Nephilim appeared
    before her once again. To fulfill her promise to Febronia, Shion stole the
    spacecraft Dinah from the Dämmerung's hangar and headed for Miltia with Allen.
    
    On their way to Miltia, Shion and Allen were suddenly attacked by unidentified
    mobile weapons and found themselves in a hopeless situation against their
    overwhelming power.
    
    To save Shion, KOS-MOS once again started up under her own will. With the power
    of KOS-MOS and the Dinah, Shion and Allen escaped their predicament and met up
    with the Elsa on its mission. The two groups joined forces.
    
    After landing on Miltia, the party fought off the U-TIC Organization's
    persistent attack and headed straight for Labyrinthos. When they arrived at its
    core, they saw the Original Zohar before them, as well as U-DO, its control
    system--with Febronia's sisters attached inside.
    
    The twisted forms of Cecily and Cathe were being kept alive as a mere part of
    the system. Shion reacted with shock at the sight.
    
    The leader of the Immigrant Fleet, Patriarch Sergius, appeared before them and
    declared that all of this was for the sake of Ormus' rule. He then used the
    system to activate the Zohar.
    
    There was no way to stop the Zohar besides destroying the system. But that
    meant the death of Febronia's sisters. As Shion was overwhelmed with despair,
    the image of Febronia once again spoke gently to her.
    
    Shion understood Febronia's words and ordered KOS-MOS to destroy the system to
    free Febronia's sisters from their curse. But even destroying the system did
    not stop the Zohar, and the Patriarch brought about the revival of the Proto
    Omega.

    The Omega system appeared, destroying Miltia. The Galaxy Federation fleet was
    wiped out, completely helpless against Omega's overwhelming destructive power.
    
    To destroy this giant system, Shion and the others penetrated the Omega using
    the Elsa.
    
    The party faced off against the Patriarch in the center of Omega. Then, Albedo
    appeared before them. Albedo tried to take the Zohar from the Patriarch, but he
    was defeated by Proto Omega's overwhelming power and faded away into
    nothingness.
    
    Jr. was filled with rage at seeing his other half killed before his eyes, but,
    faced with the fearsome power that the Patriarch had obtained, could do nothing
    but watch.
    
    The Patriarch laughed at them, calling them nothing more than insects, and
    moved to destroy Second Miltia to demonstrate his god-like power.
    
    Suddenly, however, Proto Omega shut down. The Testaments appeared before the
    bewildered Patriarch.
    
    To retrieve the Zohar from the Patriarch, the Testaments destroyed him along
    with Proto Omega. Shion's group was confused as to the Testaments' intent.
    
    The Testaments ignored the party completely and revived Albedo, allowing him to
    finally fulfill his wish of contacting U-DO.
    
    The space-time anomaly brought about by the contact of Albedo and U-DO
    swallowed up Miltian space and began to slowly spread out through the cosmos.
    
    To settle things with Albedo, Jr. set out alone into the space-time anomaly.
    The sad conflict between brothers was resolved with the destruction of Albedo.
    
    The Kirschwassers gently nestled up to Albedo's lingering consciousness as it
    gradually dissipated. With his cherished desire fulfilled, Albedo faded away in
    satisfaction. Though it had only been for a brief moment, Jr. had been able to
    touch his heart. He quietly looked on as Albedo, his other half, passed on.
    
    The space-time anomaly receded. The Original Zohar that drifted  at its center
    was swallowed by a giant Gnosis--Abel's Ark--and was once again lost.
    
    In his office onboard the Dämmerung, Wilhelm watched over the events.
    
    chaos quietly but firmly made his intentions clear to wilhelm. Hearing his
    words, Wilhelm merely smiled.

    T.C. 4767. Half a year since the destruction of the planet Miltia was brought
    bout by the Ormus Patriarch, Sergius.
    
    The Gnosis phenomenon, occurring in the star systems throughout the Galaxy
    Federation, was accelerating its rate of expansion, and more than 30% of all
    solar systems had suffered devastating damage. The Galaxy Federation government
    and autonomous states viewed the situation as critical and made advancement of
    the grand anti-Gnosis Zohar Project their highest priority. The Contact
    Subcommittee, too, were frantically dealing with the situation. It was at this
    time that an incident occurred in which planets' major cities were attacked by
    Gnosis.
    
    Localized Gnosis phenomena had been observed numerous times before this point,
    but this incident differed in a significant way. The damage was always centered
    around a specific urban area, almost as if an intelligent factor were at work.
    These events would later come to be called Gnosis terrorism.
    
    Juli Mizrahi of the Contact Subcommittee commissioned the Kukai Foundation to
    investigate. The mission would be undertaken by Jr., Jin, and company.
    
    Jin visitd the site of an attack, where he encountered a girl calling herself
    Nephilim. Shortly thereafter, their path was blocked by Doctus, an agent of the
    mysterious Scientia organization.
    
    Believing the girl to be involved in the incident in some way, Jin drove off
    Doctus and turned over the girl to the custody of the Subcommittee.
    
    The Contact Subcommittee's examination revealed that the girl was a special
    type of Realian. In addition, they detected in her brainwaves the same wave
    pattern data as that given of by Lemegeton. It was a program created to analyze
    the Zohar during the era when Lost Jerusalem existed.
    
    That program, however, had fragmented during the Miltian Conflict. It was
    scattered through the U.M.N. in the form of Lemegeton Fragments.
    
    As Jin's group continued their investigation of the girl and Lemegeton, they
    discovered that he series of attacks was being caused by a man named Grimoire.
    
    But the Gnosis under Grimoire's control attacked the Contact Subcommittee lab
    where the girl was being protected.
    
    Juli and the girl were trapped in the occupied lab. Juli sent a message to
    Shion Uzuki, Chief of Vector's First R&D Division, requesting rescue. Shion
    accepted Juli's request and, together with KOS-MOS, stormed the lab.
    
    Shion's group succeeded in suppressing the Gnosis rescuing Juli, but the girl
    was captured by Grimoire.
    
    Working together with Doctus, who had been searching for Grimoire, Jin and
    Shion finally discovered Grimoire's location. But Shion learned there that the
    U.M.N., Vector, and her own father had been involved in the incident.
    
    To uncover Grimoire's true nature and to rescue the captured girl, Shon
    resolved to break into a region of the U.M.N. that was under special Vector
    control.
    
    With the help of Scientia, Jin's group, and the girl herself, the incident
    finally drew to a close.
    
    But learning of Vecor and her father's involvement in the incident weighed
    heavily on Shion's heart. Unable to endure her emotions any longer, she finally
    left Vector.

    Observations on Combat Realians
    
    Combat Realians: they're the same model of combat Realians used by the Galaxy
    Federation military, but they've been modified for U-TIC Organization use,
    increasing their resistance to heat, electricity, and flammability, allowing
    them to fight under more extreme conditions. In addition, their increased
    endurance means they can carry more powerful armaments.
    U-TIC equips its Realians with specialized Realian weapons, notably ones with
    high output and high electromagnetic force. To deal with them, we will likely
    need equipment with stronger heat and electricity resistance.
    
    27-Series Asura: at the present time, there are no known weaknesses in the
    27-Series Asura. Their capabilities far exceed those of other combat Realians
    in every respect. Their combat pattern is set so that they first render the
    target immobile (Break status) and then confirm the target's complete
    destruction. This set way of thinking can be called their only weakness, and if
    they can be immobilized (forced into Break status) first, it may be possible to
    destroy them. But their minds are not simple and getting the better of them is
    not likely to be easy.

    T.C. 4753 The Federation's first descent operation has started. The objective
    is to control the U-TIC Organization. Due to another mission, I was unable to
    join the descent. My real objective is to acquire Professor Mizrahi's research
    document, the Y-Data. My mission will commence as the descent operation
    progresses. The day I and the Federation acquire the Y-Data will be the day the
    U-TIC Organization leaves Miltia. However, it will be difficult to approach
    Professor Mizrahi.
    
    Any carelessness on my part may result in sabotaging my father's function at
    Labyrinthos. It is probably best to gather information at a city in Miltia.
    
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB418)-Federal Report 02
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The attitude towards the Galaxy Federation in Mitlia seems to be warped due to
    the propaganda widely distributed by the U-TIC Organization. There is a large
    shadow looming, but citizens seem to be hiding from it. The descent operation
    is divided into three phases so that it does not incite disorder among the
    residents of the theocratic Government of Miltia, but continuation of the
    operation may result in completely alienating the Galaxy Federation from the
    population, causing the citizens to view us as their enemy.
    
    However, there are also some among the population who feel animosity towards
    the violent acts by the U-TIC Organization. The elderly gentleman that I spoke
    to in the city described himself as a true Miltian.
    He is probably a descendant of the Immigrant Fleet. Whether one is from the
    Immigrant Fleet or part of the Galaxy Federation, there is no difference in the
    voice wanting peace.
    
    The day of the Second Descent Operation is fast approaching.
    
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB419)-Federal Report 03
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    It has become apparent that there are largely two groups among the citizens of
    the Theocratic Government of Miltia and those affiliated with the U-TIC
    Organization: those who support and those who have doubts. I describe them as
    "those who have doubts," because although they may question the action of the
    organization, the citizens are not allowed to do anything more. At first glance
    Miltia may seem like a democracy, but the planet is completely controlled by
    the U-TIC Organization. Since current law stipulates the rejection of a fascist
    regime as a condition to enter the Galaxy Federation, it can be said that the
    Theocratic Government of Miltia is no longer part of the Galaxy Federation.
    
    I just hope that we will be able to give some hope to the people on this planet
    with the descent operation that we are currently planning.
    
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Second descent operation has begun. Miltia is now completely a war zone. The
    Federation has successfully laid down the ground work for the third descent
    operation. However, there are several points of which I a not convinced. The
    number of troops deployed is far below what is necessary. Dmitri Yuriev's
    influence can be seen in the execution of this operation. He is planning on
    deploying a new weapon for the next operation, but how effective they would be
    is yet to be seen. There have also been rumors that the U-TIC Organization is
    preparing a new weapon for the next operation as well.
    
    It is a mobile weapon craft utilizing the same Vessel of Anima that Lieutenant
    General Helmer is secretly preparing for the Federation. Both the U-TIC
    Organization and the Federation will be deploying weapons utilizing the same
    architecture. It is highly doubtful that this is a coincidence. I would not be
    surprised if there is another force that is secretly playing a part in the
    current situation.

    I was able to acquire an ID for the Acute Neurosis Treatment Facility. The plan
    is to gather intel necessary to acquire the Y-Data. According to those within
    the facility, Professor Mizrahi's research regarding U-DO is in its final
    stages.
    Professor Mizrahi is apparently mass-producing Realians with special
    enhancements that allows them to function as an inter-connector between humans
    and U-DO at Proto Merkabah. As for the human test subjects, it seems they are
    having problems locating suitable subjects.
    
    The U-TIC Organization is also putting massive efforts into locating human
    beings that have an affinity with Realians that are able to link with U-DO. My
    mother, Aoi Uzuki, was taken in by this facility  as a suitable subject. I do
    not want my sister to know the truth. This must be very hard on my father. I
    will refuse to contemplate this since it may interfere with my current mission.
    First, I must locate where the Y-Data is stored.

    There is a person of interest within the staff of Labyrinthos. His name is
    Kevin Winnicot and he seems to be Professor Mizrahi's assistant, but his
    research subject, "Basic theory of a strategically multiple operations
    system that obeys the rules of order," is rather questionable.
    It seems to be an operation system for an anti-Gnosis weapon, but the Gnosis
    phenomenon has only been observed locally, and there are still many unknown
    factors. Why is there a need to perform a large-scale research on anti-Gnosis
    weapons at this facility?
    Why are they performing the research on U-DO at another facility?
    
    According to Realians re-calibrated at Proto Merkabah, a new model of Realian,
    aside from the current re-calibrations, is being developed there. This new
    model of Realians, known as the 100-Series, is said to come equipped with a
    function known as the Hilbert Effect. According to leaked information, this
    Hilbert Effect is used to wipe out the Gnosis.
    
    I don't know what is exactly going on in Miltia.

    I have descended on Miltia again under Lieutenant General Helmer's orders. I
    was notified that the Federation's trump card was a bio-weapon only after they,
    the URTVs, were sent down on the planet.
    The U-TIC Organization seemed to have been using the Zohar as a generator for
    their mobile weapon craft. The URTVs were sent in order to disconnect that
    life-line because they are the antithesis of the U-DO system.
    
    what bothers me is the term "Song," that I heard in Labyrinthos. It seems to be
    some type of a code, but I am unable to even guess what it is. With Realians,
    URTVs, Gnosis, U-DO, Zohar. and humans all converging on the planet with their
    own agenda, it is doubtful that planet Miltia will be able to avoid heavy
    casualties.

    Apparently the U-TIC Organization was successful in developing their new mobile
    weapon craft. According to troops that have already landed, it has surpassed
    the A.M.W.S. on all levels. The question is who is going to pilot such a craft.
    It is doubtful that even I would be able to control such a craft. The identity
    of this pilot bothers me.
    
    I was unable to acquire the Y-Data, but this data that was given to me by my
    father...This would not be easy. It is probably time for me to fight that man
    again.

    (DB425)-Miltian Conflict Report
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    [Before the Outbreak of the Miltian Conflict]
    The Miltian solar system was one unified nation governed by the Miltian
    republic. It was comprised of the capital planet, Miltia (the fifth planet in
    the system), and an artificial city orbiting the system's companion star
    (Miltia is a binary star system).
    
    The Miltia system itself belongs to the 4th Finger of the 18th Galactic Tantus
    Arm. Within the same arm, 10 parsecs (about 33 light years) away, was a system
    with a habitable planet that had just been terraformed. Immigration from the
    Miltia system to this new world was underway, and it later came to be knwon as
    Second Miltia.
    
    Approximately 80 percent of the population of the Miltian Republic was composed
    of Immigrant Fleet descendants. Before it became a republic and a member of the
    Federation, the nation was an autonomous government. Upon joining the Galaxy
    Federation, a Federation-assigned parliament member took office as head of the
    Miltian government. But this situation, in which the planet was effectively
    under Federation control, led to discontent among the citizenry. This
    contributed to the difficulty of disbanding the former government and the
    military of the autonomous government (this military would later become the
    U-TIC Organization's main force).
    
    After the destruction of planet Michtam, the Zohar research facilities were
    moved to Miltia, due to the existence of numerous facilities left on Miltia
    from early Immigrant Fleet visits. A senior researcher on the project at the
    time, Joachim Mizrahi, resided on Abraxas (Federation name: Michtam). Being of
    the People of Zohar himself, he established the U-TIC Organization in secret
    from the Federation government with the aid of the former government (Ormus),
    and proceeded with connection experiments involving the Zohar and its control
    system, U-DO (it is said parliamentary manipulation by then-chairman Wilhelm
    was behind the Federation overlooking the development of U-TIC). The Song of
    Nephilim was born as a byproduct of that research.
    
    After that, Mizrahi and newly-assigned U-TIC research staff member, Juli
    Niwashiro, produced a child, Sakura. Due partly to Sakura's unusual illness,
    their married life did not last long. After they separated, Mizrahi devoted
    himself to Realian research in an effort to cure his daughter Sakura, who was
    living with Juli. There are signs that he actually used the former government
    to support this project.
    
    [Outbreak of the Miltian Conflict]
    An experiment at the Yuriev Institute resulted in the death of Joachim
    Mizrahi's daughter. Yuriev informed Joachim of this matter personally.
    Mizrahi's reasearch objective now changed from treating Sakura to reviving
    her--the creation of a new Sakura.
    
    Burying himself in even more extreme research, Joachim retreated underground,
    and, under the wing of the former government (Ormus), proceeded with the Zohar
    and Song connection experiments. With the achievement of a certain degree of
    success from the Zohar research (temporary activation via emulator unit and the
    completion of Proto Omega), the former government military, under the name of
    the U-TIC Organization, organized a coup d'état in support of Mizrahi.
    
    It is said that behind Mizrahi's support lay not merely his position as a Zohar
    researcher, but his high status on Abraxas--in other words, his status inside
    of Ormus.
    
    For some time, the Federation government had viewed the monopolization of the
    Zohar by the former government faction as dangerous and had been conducting
    their own internal investigation. They requested that the coup d'ètat
    government turn over Joachim to the Federation. At this same time, the
    Federation Special Operations force, under the command of Commander Helmer, was
    stationed on the planet Zavarov. It was there that Helmer became acquainted
    with Dmitri and Juli.
    
    In addition, within that same force was the intelligence bureau's special
    missions unit,formerly headed by Colonel Margulis. Captain Jin Uzuki had once
    been assigned to it, as well (at this point in time, Margulis and Pellegri had
    already disappeared from the military).
    
    Eventually, due to the Miltian Republic's refusal to turn over Joachim, the
    Galaxy Fedration declared war. The Special Operations force, together with the
    Marine Corps' land operations division, began descent operations on the planet
    Miltia. Contact was lost with the first and second descent operation forces,
    and the were presumed eliminated (by the outbreak of Realian violence and the
    mobile weapon force containing Proto Omega as well as the Zohar defense
    system). Lieutenant Virgil was one of the soldiers who participated in this
    second descent operation.
    
    Additionally, one of the causes of the descent operation failures is thought to
    have been that units which had been under Colonel Margulis's influence were in
    communication with the Republic government (Ormus). The leaking of Ormus
    secrets by Suou Uzuki also took place during this time.
    
    Several weeks after the second descent operation, the third operation began,
    and the U.R.T.V. soldiers began their infiltration.
    
    The operation ended with the activation of the Zohar, the appearance of the
    Gnosis, and the sealing away of the region of space around the planet Miltia.
    
    At this time, at Juli's suggestion, Proto Merkabah was sealed into the depths
    of the abyss--but that is merely what the records show. The truth would be
    hidden by Ormus-affiliated Parliament members and members of the military.
    
    [After the Miltian Conflict]
    With the destruction of Miltia, the U-TIC Organization effectively perished.
    To Ormus, that meant nothing more than that they had lost one of their
    scapegoats; however, due to a need to continue manipulating the Federation
    government, U-TIC was not entirely erased. It was reformed by Margulis and went
    into a long period of dormancy.
    
    The citizens who evacuated the planet Miltia emigrated to Second Miltia, and in
    place of the defeated Miltian Republic was born the Miltian Autonomous State.
    Lieutenant General Helmer of the Federation military became Miltia's
    parliamentary representative, and with that, Helmer retired from Military
    service.
    
    Dmitri had died during the Miltian Conflict, but the post-war proceedings were
    largely directed by the Salvator faction, and the Kukai Foundation was
    established as an enforcement organization. While feeling a need to defend
    against Ormus, Helmer nevertheless wanted to keep his distance from the
    Salvator and kept his link to Gaignun Kukai a secret.
    
    Learning from the failures of the Republic, Ormus assigned all of their illegal
    activities to the U-TIC Organization and concentrated on legal activities
    (manipulating the Parliament), centered around Sergius.

    (B040) Changes made to the original Database
    ==============================================================
    
    
    Doing this transcript I found some errors in a few entries, which I attemted to
    correct to the best of my knowledge. Some of this was only possible through the
    kind help of richard_99_uk who checked and translated it from the japanese
    edition of the game for me.
    I'll list all of those, except for the very few spelling errors I found, here:
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB059)-[T-elos]
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    I deleted a paragraph reading: "The name "T-elos" is derived from the ancient
    Greek word for the ultimate state of being or limitless power." from the end of
    the entry, because it already appears in the middle of it.
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB191)-[Isolated Research Facility]
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The second paragraph reads: "Research was conducted in this facility by not
    only Ormus resea..." in the US version, the rest of the paragraph is illegible.
    The paragraph was completed in cross-reference with the JAP version.
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB235)-[Planet Tessedora]
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The diameter given is 12,500 meters, this was changed to kilometers after
    checking in the JAP version.
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    (DB379)-[Y-Data]
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    The 1st sentence of the third paragraph reads: "Part of the recorded data
    includes U.M.N. transport code for Old Miltia, closed off 15 years ago, is
    recorded inside the data." in the US Database. I changed this to: "Part of the
    recorded data includes the U.M.N. transport code for Old Miltia, closed off 15
    years ago."

    The Database side quest section was created and written down by SqueekingOut
    (Diana M. Koivunen), the Database entries chapter has was transcribed,
    corrected and re-formatted by DaGrimOne(Nicki Holighaus).
    
    
    Our thanks go out to:
    
    Everyone at Monolith Software for creating one of the greatest series of gaming
    history. And completing it despite bad sales.
    
    Namco Bandai for publishing Xenosaga and bringing it to the US, making it
    available for all the people unable to understand japanese.
    
    
    SqueekingOut(Diana M. Koivunen) thanks:
    
    Nicki for suggesting we work together. We came at this problem from two
    different angles and met in the middle, it was really great.
    
    The GameStop employee who suggested Xenosaga to me in February when I was
    looking for games to play on the PS2 I'd bought to replace my aging DreamCast.
    I never caught his name, but this would have never happened without his
    suggestion.
    
    My friends for putting up with me this year while I raved about this great
    series I'd discovered. Now, if I could just get them to play console
    based RPGs, they might understand what I was raving about.
    
    
    DaGrimOne(Nicki Holighaus) thanks:
    
    Joanna for just being who she is, without you I wouldn't be who I am. And for
    her encouraging words. (What the hell do you do this for! You only do it
    because you'd be bored otherwise!)
    
    Diana for being a great partner to work with, it was fun, really!
    
    richard_99_uk(Richard Hughes) for helping with the mistakes I found, looking
    them up in and translating them from the japanese version. You were a great
    help.
