Xenogears terms

From Academic Kids

Xenogears is a role-playing game for the Sony PlayStation. This is a glossary of names and terms in the game.

Abel 
As a young boy living in the Cosmic War era, he came into contact with Zohar when he accidentally stumbled upon a facility housing a Deus/Zohar connection experiment. The Wave Existence gave Abel its power so one day he could destroy Zohar, which would free the Existence to ascend back to the higher dimension. Abel had been searching for his mother when he made contact, and his desire to be with her imparted the Existence with a mother's will when he made contact. It constructed a woman using the biological computer Kadomony, a component of the Deus system, to be with Abel, but Deus transformed the woman into the original Miang. Abel was the only human survivor of the Eldridge crash. See also Abel.
Aveh 
One of the two kingdoms of the Ignas continent. As the story begins, it is at war with the kingdom of Kislev. Aveh was losing the war with Kislev until the Gebler military force from Solaris began assisting Aveh with military support. It is located in the desert of Ignas and was founded by Roni Fatima five hundred years before, after the great war with Solaris. See also Ab.
Eldridge 
A Philadelphia Class interstellar war ship. The Eldridge was sent to Miktam04B, the planet destroyed by Deus, to collect survivors and retrieve the weapon. Eldridge was to transport the weapon to an uninhabited planet but Deus realized what was happening and took control of the ship. The captain tried to regain control, but could not. He decided to self-destruct the ship, and its remains crash-landed on an unidentified planet, where the game's events transpire. Abel, the child who had made contact with Zohar, was the sole survivor of the crash. It is interesting to note that Eldridge is the name of the small US Navy ship alleged to have been involved in the famed Philadelphia Experiment. See also Eldridge.

Said to have been created by the humans during the Cosmos War. The main component of Deus was called Omega-1, and its power source was Zohar.

The resulting connection pulled the Wave Existence from the higher dimension and trapped it inside Zohar. The power it got for the Wave Existence was too much, and Deus went out of control and destroyed a colony planet, Miktam04B, before it shut down. The war ship Eldridge was sent to the planet to search the system and recover any surviors that were left. See also Tetragrammaton. See also Deus.

In Episode V, Zohar is responsible for the ether power that the people of the world use and is the main power source of all the Gears in the world. See also Zohar.
Zeboim 
A civilization that existed 4,000 years before the game's events. The Zeboim were a technologically advanced civilization that had mastered nanotechnology, but the population was dwindling due to genetic damage.
