This was stated in Trails of Cold Steel 3 when the ship was blown up by a former friend of theirs.
Not all sir, Victor S Arseid did survived, albeit losing his hand. while Oliver too survived, but losing his eyes.
I am happy to hear that but is there any way for Rean to have someone else other than Alisa because personally I think that Emma is equal to the task, and Laura as well.
Seiing the final CG and correlations of event, Emma is large probably gonna be paired with Gaius, Laura seems to join the Bracer Guild or might be Bracer's helper post, considering the CG heavy implying. So no other way but to accept the meme
You are wrong in that comment I have seen the final bonding events of the series they are giving the option of the player to decide the future of Rean, and his pairing so if you choose Emma then she becomes his wife at the end.
No i am not wrong, it shown clearly see the final CG of the end.
CG cant be changed, no matter what events in game are. In that final CG art scene, u see, Scherazard and Oliver married each other, and at that wedding scene are certain people which is "IMPLIED" to be paired with each other later on. You can see the pairings very CLEAR. Even Elie and Lloyd too. From there you can easily see emma is paired with gaius,Crow with towa, laura probably joins sara and fie, millium is strongly implied to be paired with jusis, even in game, but this CG art cements it. machias and elliot be like, "friends forever".
You can see it at TRUE ENDING CG ART. Its falcom's final and absolute way to shove the pairing to you guys. "Have a good day", says Falcom
The scene at the end with Emma is clearly cheating or two timing if Gais is supposed to be the pairing then she cheated on him look clearly at the passionate kiss with Rean, and she looked very happy.
my Main thing is that those final scenes break up the supposed canon pairing of Alisa.
Thats why its canon, you can dream with the non canon pairing. But its inevitable for the canon pairing. Just like how on Ao no Kiseki, where Lloyd can also be paired with Rixia Mao or Noel Seeker, or even Fran Seeker, or even Tio Plato(Jail, mind you). Some did says Lloyd is better paired with Rixia Mao and in fact most did, even I felt so, until I understand main reason is mostly for future implementation of Kiseki game,even I wants Lloyd to be paired with Rixia, but canon ending means he finally ends up with the supposed pairing. Thats how Falcom always do it. Mostly is about future storyline, We know this is not going to be the end of line. We will see Rean in the future, Although working as support to the team that is supposed to be main character later on. Thats why canon pairing is set up. Its mostly for future game.
I want to know why then they do those final bonding scene events at the end of the game because usually when you do that is to set up the final pairing for the Main partner, and it is a shame that this ends the Erebonia series but Rean at this point can't be used as a Main character he has become too powerful.
Rean at the end became a Divine Blade you can't use such a overpowering character like that for a Main character.
I don't hate Alisa at all she is a excellent partner for Rean but I wanted to see if it is possible to pick someone else because Emma to me is a solid choice if he doesn't pick Alisa, and Laura is a viable candidate as well.
If you ask me. Its clearly not about alisa(i dont exactly like this girl, she is pretty cringy, I preferred Towa over most girl in this game part). Kiseki series has been planned for over 10 years of planning, almost 20 tbh. Its more likely about storyline for future.
Also Kiseki series has been changing protagonist all over the storyline hence the name "The Legend of Heroes". You cant look at Sen no Kiseki as only 4 title, instead, look at the bigger picture, Sen no Kiseki 4 is actually the NINTH game of the whole series.
Back then it was Estelle Bright for the first two game, which is Sky 1 and 2, followed by Kevin Graham for Sky 3rd, and then followed by Lloyd Bannings for Zero and Ao and finally, the current protagonist, Rean Schwarzer for Sen 1 to Sen 4, and this finally ONLY completes exactly 60% of the whole Kiseki/Trails series.
Next game is ensured a new protagonist and it is heavily rumored to be Calvard Republic or Remiferia or Holy Nation of Arteria, but I can easily bet Remiferia and Arteria isnt going to be that big due to their small nation. The highlight or literally what Kondo should focus should be the Calvard Republic arc because it directly connects to aftermath of the Erebonian Empire arc. The war between Calvard and Erebonia isnt over yet. Especially since Erebonia gave Crossbell independence since it shows how weak the Republic is, giving out independence with Erebonia as guarantor(even if this is decided in goodwill). Pressure within Republic itself is going to be high, due to Rocksmith's failure to retake Crossbell from the Empire since its annexation and his retirement. Turbulent era is coming for the Republic itself.
If the republic wants to take the offensive against the Empire, literally it should be directly after Osborne's death, and directly after Rocksmith's retirement. And if the protagonist is a Republican, large probably we might even see Rean as an extremely strong enemy, should I even mention Aurelia? Even tho the empire no longer have any Divine Knights, the threats of the Panzer Soldat still lingers. My goodness even as Panzer Soldat, if the user is OP, It still beats even Divine Knights, Aurelia proved that. This clearly shown that the empire can easily mass fielding this and four of them is about as strong as an Aion(without Sept-Terrion buff ofc plus Ouroboros cant even mass produce an Aion unlike Panzer Soldat), imagine over 200 of these units in the battlefield, it is so intimidating hence why Rufus said its the "Morale effect" that these Soldats bring in the battlefield that makes it pretty dangerous, and as the "so called equal in strength in Zemuria with the Empire", the Republic wouldn't want to be called a second player, so there will be continuation of the war, which is large probably incited by Ouroboros, since you know, Cedric Reise Arnor(Former Crown Prince) is part of Ouroboros too right now, and his action can easily means its "Empire's fault" for the Republican.
What do you think?
