In The Game, there were special characters that were exiled from their world due to one reason or another. The exiled characters were removed from their world and were given the role of Wanderer, someone who is not tied to a specific place. In some form, the exiled were banished from their respective worlds by someone associated with or the representatives themselves. The souls of the exiles were coalesced by unknown means into a vessel we now know as the Protagonist. Though not readily apparent, those people who have special abilities to sense more are able to tell, usually, as a vague feeling, that there are multiple souls in the Protagonist. The game often describes the souls within the Protagonist as resembling dragons.

Exiles

Listed here are the exiles that have been mentioned or alluded to in the main quest, events, character quests, and summopedias:

Takamagahara

Spoilers

Exile: Susanoo
Rule: To cut authority

  • A god in Japanese mythology, Susanoo-no-Mikoto is associated with the seas and storms. He is the brother of Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi.
  • Amaterasu often describes the protagonist as her brother and, in a way, Tsukuyomi too but he sees that the Protagonist isn't his brother, rather they merely house his soul.
  • Tadikarao identified Susanoo inside the Protagonist via scent and describes him as being a delinquent that terrorized their village so much that their elder sister could no longer leave the house.
    • This mirrors the Japanese tale where Susanoo, in a fit of rage after being defeated, caused Amaterasu to flee the heavens and hid inside a cave refusing to get out, plunging the world into darkness and chaos. Tadikarao was one of the gods to get her out, where his job was to open up the cave Amaterasu hid in.
  • Susanoo was described to have disappeared into the ends of the far off plateau.

Wa no Kuni

Spoilers

Exile: Yoshitsune
Rule: To cut distance

  • A legendary figure in Japanese history, Minamoto no Yoshitsune was a military commander of the Minamoto clan of Japan in the late Heian and early Kamakura periods.
  • Multiple characters in-game have noticed Yoshitsune inside protagonist but the more prominent is Oniwaka, also called Benkei, a loyal and strong retainer of Yoshitsune.
    • Shino mentions that the Protagonist's ability to cut through distance was similar to his beloved, which is Fusehime from the Japanese epic novel Nansō Satomi Hakkenden, but closer to the "source". This is due to speculation that Fusehime may have descended from Yoshitsune's bloodline. This is also why most of the Hakkenshi feel a strong sense of duty towards the Protagonist as it is in their blood to carry out the job their family was tasked with.

Kamuy Kotan

Spoilers

Exile: -
Rule: -

  • In his Valentine Special Quest, Korpokkur calls the Protagonist as a dragon, to which he explains that those were attributed to thunder in his world of Kamuy Kotan, which may hint that the exile might be the thunder god of Ainu mythology Kanna Kamui, who is often depicted as a dragon.
  • In Japanese text, Korpokkur mentions that thunders are called dragon in Kamui Kotan, and then refers the protagonist as the "Child of the Descended Drangon/Thunder".
    • Korpokkur might be rather meaning Okikurumi, who was given birth between Kannna Kamui(the first Ainu god ever descended to the earth) and the spirit of elm tree.
    • Being bestowed a sacred sword on him from the god of parenting, Okikurumi calls upon his father's thunder through the sword, Annihilating the evil deities in the realm of darkness.
    • However, later on, getting disappointed with the corruption among the people of Kamui Kotan, aged Okikurumi eventually disappears from there, leaving those people in regret.
    • This may explain a part of what happened between Horkeu Kamui, the exiled hero, and Korpokkur in their past.

Hourai

Spoilers

Exile: Nuwa
Rule: To cut the heavens/skies

  • A mother goddess in Chinese mythology, Nüwa, is credited to have created humanity with her brother Fuxi, as well as repairing the Pillar of Heaven.
  • Hakumen notes that she came from Hourai to Wa no Kuni possibly as the Thousand-Year Vixen whom later became Daji whom was one of the subordinates Nuwa summoned to wreak havoc in the Shang Dynasty and eventually it's fall.
    • Hakumen oftentimes calls the Protagonist as her "lord" and revealed in Chapter 10 that it was Nuwa, who she describes as a wicked woman who bent the world to her will which Hakumen loved and respected.
  • Shennong carries with him a Sacred Artifact that previously belonged to Nuwa, and in Chapter 10, he describes the light coming from the Protagonist's sword as belonging to the hero who disappeared from Hourai, the Great Mother Nuwa.

Exile: Jamukha
Rule: Unknown

  • A Mongolian political and military leader, Jamukha, was a childhood friend (anda), blood brother, and chief rival to Temujin (later named Genghis Khan). Jamukha was elected Gur Khan, universal ruler, by the remaining tribes, the assumption of this title was the final breach between Temujin and Jamukha, leading Temujin to form a coalition of tribes to oppose him. This eventually led to Jamukha's death due to his followers betraying him and refusing to join Temujin in his group as there could only be one Mongol lord and asking to die a noble death without blood being spilled.
  • Temujin sees his blood brother in the Protagonist and asserts that he will not let him get away again, that the Protagonist either join his ordu or choose death.

Shangri La

Yggdrasil

Spoilers

Exile: Freyr
Rule: Unknown

  • A ruler of peace and prosperity, rain, sunshine, virility, harvest, and battle in Norse mythology, Freyr, was a Vanir that ruled over the world of Alfheim, the land of Elves. He rides a golden boar made by dwarves named Gullinbursti. He is eventually defeated and killed by the fire jötunn Surtr during Ragnarök due to the lack of his sword during the ensuing battle.
  • Surtr exclaims that the Protagonist has Freyr's soul and that no matter what happens, they could not defeat Surtr due to their original battle having Surtr as the victor and the Protagonist was still without his sword.
  • Gullinbursti feels the soul inside the Protagonist as Freyr in the 2019 New Year event and explains that he was modeled after his owner. He is also carrying Freyr's sword which held the Rule to cut through defeat.

Kitezh

Spoilers

Exile: Veles
Rule: Unknown

  • A god of the underworld, earth, waters, and cattle in Slavic mythology, Veles (also called Volos), was the opponent of the supreme thunder god Perun. The two were in constant battle due to some accounts stating that Veles stole Perun's cattle or his wife away from him. Perun would punish Veles with death, though this was not permanent and Veles would again return. Due to this, Veles was often considered as a shepherd for souls to the underworld.
  • Veles is often described as a serpent or a dragon. Veles is also known as Volos which is the Russian or Ukrainian word for "hair" and as such, Veles was also described as having the appearance of a bear or a wolf.
    • Veles and Volos are sometimes separated into two different deities, Veles retaining the god of the underworld and death aspect while Volos became a god of pasturelands, cattle, and harvest.
  • Volos notes that the Protagonist is similar to his old friend in Kitezh who was always nice to him.
  • Perun declares that the soul of Veles resides inside the Protagonist.
  • Chernobog greets Volos as the Eastern Devil Veles but was corrected to Good Harvest Volos; he also notes about the promise Perun and Veles made when an attack by Alberich was split into two before disappearing as they were attacked.

Tír na nÓg

Eden

Spoilers

Exile: Shaytan
Rule: To cut gravity

  • An evil spirit in Abrahamic religions, Shaytan, also known as the Devil, is an entity that entices humanity into sin and falsehood. Though he is usually depicted as a fallen angel who possessed great piety and beauty but was fell from Heaven due to his rebellion against God.
    • The fallen angel is often attributed to the angel Lucifer, whose name means "Lightbearer" in Latin, due to the translation of the name Helel, meaning "morning star", who tried to dethrone the high god in Canaan mythology, El.
    • In the Book of Revelation, the angel Michael defeated the Devil, appearing as a great red dragon, and casting it down from Heaven.
    • In the 1667 epic poem "Paradise Lost" written by English poet John Milton, it tells the story of how Lucifer, who has now taken the moniker of Satan after falling from Heaven, and his plans to organize the other fallen angels in Hell and corrupt the Earth and mankind by allowing Adam and Eve to eat fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
  • Multiple denizens of Gehenna have noted or seen the soul of Shaytan inside the protagonist; namely Zabaniyya, Marchosias, and Lucifuge, who calls the Protagonist "Lightbearer".
    • In the Valentine Festival event, Ziz was able to recognize Shaytan's ability when the Protagonist used it.
  • Michael also knows of the soul in Protagonist and calls him his brother.

Gehenna

Olympus

Spoilers

Exile: Eurynome
Rule: To cut bloodlines

  • A titan creatrix in Greek mythology, Eurynome, created the universe with her husband Ophion and proceeded to create the other Titans to oversee the different planets of the solar system in the Pelasgian creation myth. Eurynome created Ophion and mated with him, in the form of a dove, she laid an egg on the waves where Ophion coiled around it seven times before it hatched and spilled out the universe. Both she and Ophion lived in Mount Olympus before they were overthrown by Cronus and Rhea.
    • Eurynome is also the name of an Oceanid who, along with the Nereid Thetis, raised the blacksmith god Hephaestus after he was thrown from Mount Olympus by his birth parents Zeus and Hera.
  • Ophion recognizes the soul of his wife inside the Protagonist, often calling them his wife and other saccharine words. He notes that her Sacred Artifact is a scythe that used to belong to her grandmother Gaia, confirming the fact that the Eurynome in the game is both the titan creatrix Eurynome and the oceanid Eurynome.
  • Hephaestus calls the Protagonist his mother and often becomes really shy when within their presence.

Great Spirit

Spoilers

Exile: Heyoka
Rule: Unknown

  • A sacred clown in Lakotan culture, Heyoka, is a contrarian jester who speaks, moves, and reacts in an opposite manner in relation to the people around them. They are regarded as mirrors and teachers. They will try to cause laughter during distressing situations or try to evoke fear in prosperous times to prevent people from being too complacent and overly secure.
  • Wakan Tanka notes that he, as a pillar that collects memories of happiness, is stricken with sadness whenever they see the Protagonist, as they see in them his friend he had to banish long ago in their world.

El Dorado

Spoilers

Exile: Quetzalcoatl
Rule: To cut the ground

  • A god of wind and wisdom in Mesoamerican culture, Quetzalcaotl, is one of the four Tezcatlipoca, specifically the White Tezcatlipoca, created by Ōmeteōtl, the first god. In the story of the Five Suns, Quetzalcoatl was the second sun to ascend to the heavens after bringing down his brother Tezcatlipoca, also known as the Black Tezcatlipoca, the first sun due to a sibling rivalry. Tezcatlipoca took revenge by turning the people at the time, whom Quetzalcoatl was fond of, into monkeys which caused Quetzalcoatl to blow them away. He then stepped down from being the sun to create new people. The third sun was Tlāloc and the fourth sun being Chalchiuhtlicue, Tlalocs second wife; both of them stepped down from being the sun due to the machinations of Tezcatlipoca. After the fourth sun, Quetzalcoatl would not accept the constant destruction of his people and traveled into the underworld and stole their bones from Mictlāntēcutli. The fifth and current sun is Huītzilōpōchtli, also known as the Blue Tezcatlipoca.
    • Quetzalcoatl is also written to have a twin brother, the psychopomp Xolotl associated with lightning and death.
  • Tezcatlipoca and Xolotl (after receiving new eyes) both refer to the Protagonist as their brother Quetzalcoatl.
    • Tezcatlipoca notes that both he and Quetzalcoatl were exiled and banishers to each other, with the two, always going into war.
    • Xolotl, according to Tezcatlipoca, was allowed to flee El Dorado given Quetzalcoatl's permission after he was supposed to be sacrificed.
  • Quetzalcoatl had a lover named Mayahuel from when he had descended upon the land as a human avatar
  • Quetzalcoatl's power was the incarnation of the flame that would raze the earth, or else it was the incarnation of the drought , that would parch the land
  • Just before Quetzalcoatl was cast away , he took up his artifact and used it to erase every trace of himself from El Dorado
  • It's strongly suggested ( or in my opinion confirmed) that Quetzalcoatl looked exactly like Tezcatlipoca in Chapter Ten Episode 21 (here's a quote)"While Quetzalcoatl was removed from a world that would never change, Tezcatlipoca, the friend who once had the same face he did, still remembers him."

Aaru

Spoilers

Exile: Seth
Rule: Unknown

  • God of storms, chaos, and the desert, Set, was an important deity in ancient Egyptian religion. One of his most notable appearance was in the myth of how he had killed and dismembered his own brother Osiris which eventually led to the birth of Horus after Osiris' wife Isis reassembled her husband. Horus would then come to defeat Set and become the ruler of the desert.
    • Another notable story of Set is his journey with Ra on his journey through the Duat where Set would defend Ra's boat from the embodiment of chaos Apep (Greek name is Apophis) in the form of a giant serpent.
  • Ash took on his brother's name after Seth was exiled from their world of Aaru. He has stated multiple times that the protagonist reminds him so much of his brother; whether it be mannerisms, personality, or even scent.
    • In Seth's Character Quest, it is revealed that his brother, the real Seth, was both the protector of the desert that he had admired and aspired to become but also the one who brought death to those that stray too far away from the order of their world known as Apophis.
  • Horus's research file talks about an uncle he had admired but was brought down by the machinations of his elders during a power struggle in their family and used him as the figurehead for his uncle's defeat.

Old Ones

Spoilers

Exile: Unknown
Rule: To cut dreams and reality

  • There is a high possibility that the exile from this world is the Nameless Mist from Lovecraftian mythos.
    • Azathoth calls the player as his bastard child in Chapter 9. In Lovecraft's initial family tree of Azathoth, he lists that Azathoth had three children; Nyarlathotep, the Nameless Mist, and the Darkness.
    • In the Valentine Festival event, Nyarlathotep mentions Shub-Niggurath and then proceeds to lists off hyenas (referring to himself), goats (referring to Shub-Niggurath he had mentioned prior), and then specifically calls the Protagonist the "concealing mist".
    • In the Promised Canaan event, Dagon narrates a flashback that Azathoth's next-in-line was sealed in a castle of incomprehensible design that Dagon himself couldn't go near, and that they had the power to cut through dreams and reality. The name of said person is also deliberately not written instead appearing as having been redacted, which falls in line with the Nameless Mist as Lovecraft wrote him as the "Not-to-be-Named One".

nvm just read in Lucifages little thingy : "Successor to the prime minister of Gehenna, he bears the title of He Who Flees the Light, to contrast that of the fallen Lightbringer who descended from Eden to Gehenna, once the Angel of Light." So it's canon that Shaytan did fall to Gehenna and is gonna be portrayed as Shaytan/Lucifer , I know a lot of people have been asking about like Babolons baby actually being one of the souls in MC and whether r not her kid was actually the exile to Gehenna and to answer that I'm honestly not to sure I mean it's always possible the baby was just another sacrifice like Behemoth ,Ziz and Leviathan and I feel like if they were this woulda probs already been confirmed since Babolons been, yah know , dead for like a whole chapter but I'm sure well get more info on the Exiles later on

A BITCH CAN FLY LIKE WHAT , OF LIKE ALL THE RULES ( that we know so far) THIS IS LIKE THE ONE PROTAG CAN JUST USE DAY TO DAY LITERALLY JUST FOR KICKS like to me ( other than being able to cut distance though i dunno if they could just use it to like get to places faster or whatevs) like im sure they wont just be like "ah yes let me rend the world real quick or reality like its just another monday sis NO sis can FUCKN FLY SIIIIRRR" and we've been show that MC can just use this rule in any battle zone or whatevs like their reg rule of rending ( as show in Valetine Extravaganza) like i know it probably doesnt like allow you to just fly left and right and is most likely just like a straight shot up ( i mean if you aim at the ground ig) like if you wanna go left gotta swing that boi right r whatever and its just a WOOOSH, im sure player 'll become better using it with practice r whatevs but just the straight up fact that they can fly?? we liVE FOR

Okay guys here me out, I know the odds of this being true is bs but what if another one of the protagonist souls was a high ranking watcher angel whom was responsible for mating with humans. I know we already have Shatan/Lucifer but he's Eden so their has to be a Gehenna soul as well and I have no idea whose that's going to be.

LMAO YALL can yall imagine Shiro's reaction to the Protagonist literally having SATANS soul in them ??? Like can u imagine his reaction to knowing his friend houses the soul of the ruler to hell (though im not sure how Shaytan will be portrayed in the game maybe he'll be the ruler or maybe not who knows)( also in chapter 9 protagonist claims that they're going to take on all their memories so can you even imagine when the protagonist remembers all of Shaytans/Satans memories??) this man is literally on his hands and knees for all things occult this man would exPLODE , i dunno ig we'll have to wait and see how the game portrays Shaytan i suppose

>>6643 I'm the same guy.

Michael explained in his first appearance that Shaytan refused leading Eden and that is now the position occupied by himself. Behemoth is a bit complicated. It's said that he doesn't absorb offerings so that they all are to be given to Eden and all else is to fuel him, making that all food or things that aren't "dedicated to someone" are turned into fuel. Ebisu and Choji failed to feed him because to them it a matter of professionalism but Ziz, Shino, Surtr, and the Protagonist were able as they dedicated it to others.

Babalon seems to clearly be a case of designed sacrifice and the fact that she got pregnant in Eden and seems to speak from experience of how Eden defiles and then punishes women. And then at the peak of the genociders arc refers to the protagonist as their child that was killed in her womb meaning that they are indeed among the exiled.

>>6472

The game stablishes multiple times that Shaytan is originally from Eden, but was banished to Gehena, probably as a sacrifice in a similar way than Behemoth, Leviathan and Ziz, as that would explain why the cake made by the Protagonist was not converted into pure energy when Behemoth ate it during one of the last chapters of Valentine Extravaganza (apparently Behemoth's rule doesn't apply to sacrifices or food made by sacrifices). Then, he started a revolution against Eden that eventually led him to exile. Which raises an interesting question: Is there an exile from Eden and an exile from Gehena? Or are they the same person?

It's missing one. Babalon's child. Shaytan actually corresponds to Gehenna(he even died as commander of Gehenna). The child is the true exile of Eden that forms the protagonist(Babalon also states that Eden is a world that makes men defile women then spurns and blames said women and she seems to have been conditioned in role and rule(in a similar way to Behemoth, Leviathan and Ziz) to be a specific type of sacrifice as a "filthy" pregnant woman whose child should not even be allowed birth and that should be forever rejected with how angels kept persuing and destroying everything around her and with how Michael made easy work of her claiming with surprising certainty that she sees herself as impure). My guess the rule the child was meant to have would be something Eden despised but created in order to control how it'd inevitably appear.
