Final Fantasy X/X-2 Theories
« on: February 28, 2014, 04:35:54 pm »
The world of Spira is not without its mysteries. What was the world like before the Machina War? What could possibly be on those unexplored islands and landmarks that we never got to go to? Was there more to the summoners before they just became weapons capable of destroying Sin? Is there a whole other world full of secrets on the other side of the barrier between life and death?

Any fan speculations, pertaining to the nature of the actual world of Spira or the technical and conceptual world behind the scenes can be posted here.

For example: My theory is that Macalania Woods is based on the Norse myth of Yggdrasil.

Yggdrasil is basically the Genesis of the Norse cosmology; the World Tree. Yggdrasil is a holy ash tree in which the gods visit daily, and has three worlds (wells) connected to its roots. These three worlds have separate guardian creatures protecting them: an eagle, four stags, and a wyrm.

The woods in Macalania is heavily populated by springs. One of Yggdrasil's worlds, Hvergelmir, is actually a spring. The two most famous trees in Macalania is the one at where Tidus and Yuna fall in love (Mysteriously, in X-2, the tree in the middle of the spring is the only one in that area that is still alive.) and the tree at the spring where spherewater is created and collected. It's a bit of a stretch, but these trees could bear some referencing to Yggdrasil, since their roots seem to be making the majority of their structure, and Yggdrasil's roots play a very vital part.

Macalania Woods is also protected by three musicians: Borra, Pukutak, and Doyra. Borra represents a bird-like creature. Pukutak represents a sort of deer-like animal. Doyra could represent a wyrm because of the horns on his head, but his face makes him out to be more of an amphibian, so it might be a stretch.

So: Macalanian Trees = Yggdrasil. Woods = Hvergelmir. Guardians of Macalania: Guardian creatures of Yggdrasil's worlds.

It fits, doesn't it?
