cpsy1991 Posted January 21 Share Posted January 21 (edited) This is my first post here, so pardon me if I make any gaffes with this. Also, if the title didn't tip you off this topic includes spoilers for the very last chapter of Engage. If you haven't gotten to it, turn back now. Spoiler I've been trying to figure out who or what the character corresponding to the Emblem of Foundations is, with no real success. All we know about them is what Sombron told us (which isn't too reliable but it's all we have to work with), which I'll sum up below for the sake of convenience. A lone warrior who eschewed bonds with others, and apparently had neither followers nor an army- all of his fighting was done completely on his own. Said to have carried out great conquests fueled by ambition and inspired Sombron's thirst for revenge. Unable to speak (Perhaps due to a defective summoning? That seems relatively more probable than him being simply mute, but I could be wrong). Activation chant is "Burn on, Emblem of Foundations." Other people I've asked about it think it may be Anri, but the only part of Anri's backstory that really fits with the description is his inability to marry Artemis- the rest of it may make sense if we assume he was projecting what he wanted to see onto the Emblem, but if that's really the case then theorizing about its identity becomes practically impossible. At the same time, the rest of the description doesn't seem to match any FE character at all, playable or otherwise. It just...doesn't make sense that they'd try to build up something that's so critical to a character's motivations and is implied to be the single most powerful Emblem in existence, and then just leave it a complete and utter mystery without actually doing anything with it at all. I want to believe they'll give more hints in the Fell Xenologues or whatever they end up being called, but given how Cindered Shadows was functionally detached from the rest of 3H's plot and didn't do much to answer many of the loose threads of its main story I don't have much hope of that happening. Still, I can't be the only one who's bugged by not knowing this, right? Edited January 22 by cpsy1991 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
