Clairvoyance (noun): The supposed faculty of perceiving things or events in the future or beyond normal sensory contact. In TFS words, "I CAN SEE THE FUTURE!!!" Joking and definitions aside, Naga has always shown to be a very powerful dragon without peer. By Awakening, her power has been displayed to even manipulate the fabric of space and time. Her fang was forged into a blade, empowered by a dragonstone, allowed a human to wield her power in their hands, and strike foes with her might. With it, the likes of Medeus, and later on Grima fell. And her tome possesses incredible power as well, allowing one to have the power to take down Loptyr. And she created the Shield of Seals, that with the Gemstones, allow one to become a demi-god and seal any entity with it. She is powerful indeed, and can make the most devastating weapons of mass destruction if she so wished. But can she actually see the future? Here's where I explain how I got this. Recall in Echoes, when Alm finally grasps Falchion and pulls it out, and later on, Mila emerges. Take note of what she says: Notice how Mila says that Naga KNEW that dragons would go insane. They were exiled several thousand years before Echoes started, so its even possible that this happened before the decline of the dragons began. If Naga knew for certain that dragons were destined to go insane she must have foreseen it. Furthermore, the fact that Naga goes and gives Duma Falchion seems a tad crazy. You give a guy that you have a violent clash with a weapon that can kill dragons just like that? What, confident that Duma would not use it against you? And how would she know that Duma would not just seal it away? What makes her so confident that she knows for certain that Falchion would for sure be used against him and Mila? Well, here's another thing that's revealed in Echoes: Rudolf explains that there's an actual prophecy about two children that will bear the Brand and will save Valentia from ruination. From exactly WHERE did this prophecy come from? Or rather, WHO gave this prophecy? If Naga had actually foreseen these events, everything starts to add up. Naga knew that Duma and Mila would go insane. She knew that Alm and Celica would be born with the Brand, and that Alm would use her Falchion to kill Duma and Mila. She knew these events, and thus did all the necessary things to prepare for the future to come. Now this is just Echoes. This can't possibly be related to the other games, right? Wrong. Let us fastforward to Awakening now. When Lucina begins explaining how she traveled through time, here's what she says. Now I dunno about you, but don't you think that time travel is a pretty BIG jump to make about Grima coming in? Rather than try anything else, it's like she had a feeling or knowledge that there was a chance that the future would come where humanity falls to Grima. So she prepares this case where she creates a new future. Of course, if she knows Multiverse theory, then Naga knows that changing time would do nothing to this future. So perhaps this was just to ensure that if this other world is saved, it would have the means to stop Grima when he inevitably arrives to conquer them. In that saved future, they could very well perform the complete Awakening and seal him away. But here's where things get really weird when you look at this other Naga in The Future Past. Now there are two ways this makes sense: 1) Either these events actually happened and Naga is literally pulling people from other dimensions to help her through time travel to the past of her world where they are there. Or. 2) She foresaw all of these events and is bring these Outrealm warriors into the exact moment when these fate comes to pass, so that they can alter the events before it even happens in the first place. Why do I think it should be #2 instead of #1? Simple. The first one creates more alternate futures. By bring the heroes into the point after it's already happened, then obviously it is only going to create another branch in the timeline. The future still happened. Even then, Naga would most certainly die if Grima actually destroyed the planet, since Naga is tied to the world as I wrote in this thread: But if Naga knew the events that were going to happen, she brought in other people so that the moment that the event is about to happen, it is avoided, thus avoiding creating different branches in time. Still not convinced? Well, I'll rewind back very far in the past, all the way back to the story of Genealogy of the Holy War. Answer this question: How did Naga learn of Loptyr's existence in the first place? Loptyr created his bloodline through Galle, and his will and power had possessed Galle, and for almost 200 years, Loptyr had gotten away with it. So how in the hell did Naga suddenly learn of the Loptry Empire's existence? Kaga actually stated in an interview that she didn't know at first. What, did Loptyr leave a note lying around that listed his evil plans? ^ Like that? Or did Naga's ability to see the future allow her to actually see the Loptyr Empire and thus she moved along to stop him? Kaga never explained how she found out, just that she did find out. Now going back to the original home continent of Archanea, if with Echoes, we know that Naga foresaw the dragonkin being driven to madness, then naturally she would already be in agreement with the transformation into Manaketes. So yeah, in the end, I think Naga's precognitive abilities allowed her to actually play a role into many events. The Divine Dragons are the strongest dragons, and dragons have incredibly powerful knowledge over magic. It would not surprise me if there was a way to see the future with this. Of course, even with this power, Naga is not omniscient. She cannot foresee everything that happens, else nothing in Fire Emblem would have happened. If she could have seen everything, Adrah would never have stolen the Shield of Seals, and Naga would have sealed Medeus in the Dragon's Altar rather than put him on guard duty that let him ultimately decide to try and conquer humanity. But what she sees and depending on how far it is, she might actually get a good idea and just be able to use her advanced knowledge and power to make preparations. So yes, I believe Naga does indeed have a form of clairvoyance.
So in several Fire Emblem games, we have certain staves that have the power to actually revive dead units. Or in Gaiden/Echoes, a certain spring water that can revive fallen units and what Mila did in Echoes. These staves are: Aum Staff Valkyrie Staff Bifröst Now, because of how players generally try NOT to have any units die, these staves are generally falling under the category of being "too awesome to use" and are always just locked into storage. Shame really. However, how does it work? Are there any limitations behind it? Or can it just revive anyone? Well, let's take a step back all the way to Genealogy of the Holy War, the Holy Grail of Fire Emblem itself. Our character Claud, the descendant of the Crusader Blaggi, attains the Holy Weapon, the Valkyrie Staff. He is accompanied by Tailtiu, and the two converse regarding the weapon: Keep in mind that the Valkyrie Staff was most definitely created by the power of a dragon. But even with that, the staff has limitations. This is also explained in regards to Mila in an Awakening DLC when we recruit Celica's Einherjar, and she explains that even Mila has limitations on whom she can revive. These limitations are restricted to the life force within us called "Aegir", which if you are not aware, is the Japanese term for "Quintessence", the major plotpoint of FE7. So even before FE7 came out, Kaga already put in the theory of quintessence into his work, but just never delved too deeply into it. FE7 also utilized it a lot, but didn't go too in depth about how it works. However, put it simply, to talk about how revival works, I will have to talk about quintessence as well. Quintessence is essentially the source of life, as without quintessence, we die. And when we die, the quintessence we have is released. No one is also born with the same amount of quintessence as someone else. It's all predetermined. Thus you will die in due course. Dragons though have a LOT of quintessence in them, which makes sense since literally no one seemed to have died of old age. Bantu is still implied to be alive and kicking in Awakening, and he was a wizened old man in the Archanea series and now with 2000 more years onto his age. Quintessence can also be used with magic, as by harnessing quintessence, you can extend your lifespan, heal from fatal injuries, and even create new life with it. Even in Fates, you can actually understand that someone has accidentally dabbled in quintessence, being Nyx. She used magic by mistake that resulted in the deaths of everyone in her village, but in exchange, she was cursed with an inability to grow older. This isn't a young body, but in fact an extremely high lifespan, born from absorbing everyone's quintessence in her village. She actually will age, but it will require a lot of time, but she doesn't understand this yet because she hasn't lived at the point when growth actually will happen. Anyways, so my theory is that I never actually thought of quintessence as the soul itself. But rather, quintessence is the energy that binds souls into the mortal plane. Souls normally should not exist in the mortal realm, but through the energy that is quintessence, the soul has a thread to bind it to it. So any living thing that has their quintessence run out, the soul no longer has a thread to the mortal realm and thus the soul leaves, causing the person to die. So generally when the soul leaves, the body will remain dead. This is very much explained in this one particular DLC chapter in New Mystery of the Emblem. A soul that has left the body is gone forever, meaning that the soul no longer exists in the mortal plane, cannot be revived even if a new body is brought into place. But Gharnef here can be revived because his soul never left the mortal place, but was sealed inside the Darksphere, and was released, but still somehow lingered, possibly due to the Imhullu tome. This actually explains a lot when you think about it. The morphs that we see in FE7 are just bodies created by quintessence, but had no true soul in them at first. It's possible that with time and such, a soul does form within it, or a soul is drawn to it. However, what does this have to do with the Staves, the Mila Springs, and Mila herself in revivals and quintessence? Sorry, I get off track at times. Anyways, the point is that those people with enough quintessence, even after death, their soul has not fully left the mortal place. It's possible that the remaining quintessence allowed the soul to keep itself in the mortal realm, though not enough to allow the body to survive. However, using the staves and power of the gods, it was able to draw on the power of quintessence, and restore the quintessence in the soul and restore the body back to its original form, allowing the quintessence to sustain the soul once more, and thus allowing life to be brought back. However, such a power is extremely great and something that cannot be used that well. This makes perfect sense as to why the Staves break after one use. Though the Valkyrie Staff can be repaired to use more times, it still seems there is a limit, as Kaga had in one of his note write this: So it's saying that eventually the Valkyrie Staff has a set number of uses before the power of the dragon's quintessence that resided in the dragonstone, and possibly the quintessence in Claud's own body, was consumed, thus preventing the use ever again. This theory on quintessence can also tie into why entities like Grima and Naga cannot die, the latter I mentioned here in this thread: And there you go. This is my theory on how revival in Fire Emblem works, and how quintessence functions. Let me know about your thoughts and ideas. I would love to hear about them, and get into any debates about things as well.
