World History

The history of Xenogears is arguably the best part of the game. It makes the story, and it gives the characters purpose. But 15,000 years is a long time to cover in a game, and inevitably, there will be loose ends, and questions unanswered. This section is here to help with that; I hope it will make the plot easier to understand, and answer all of those questions we were left with.

For information on translations and errors, please see the appropriate FAQ entry. Thank you.


Episode I - the era of human expansion, the discovery of Zohar, and the creation of Deus.
