As a matter of fact, yeah, I've read HP... But if creating Aeon Cores really took a toll on the summoner, how come Ifarnal seems to be alright, just older than the late teens he was when he was alive? Because he said that he summoned the island using hundreds of fayth. I'm just.. what the hell.

Perhaps he was hallucinating and that was just side-effects of the magic surrounding the summoned island. Like Yevon, Ifarnal may have not wanted his island to be discovered, or at least not by just anyone who passed by it either by boat, airship or swimming. Perhaps it let Tidus pass because of his origins as a summon, or because he hails from Zanarkand, who knows.

I felt like that, too... "Dafuq is happening here?" Then again, it could be effect of the magic surrounding the summoned island...
What I think is odd is how Ifarnal kept the summoning if he couldn't bond properly with the fayth, for how long he has been doing it and why. If it has really been 1000 years since the summoning, I figure he'd dwindle like Yu Yevon, who was said to be peerless when alive yet he ultimately succumbed because he was drawing immensurable power from an uncountable number of fayth as well. Unless, of course, if Ifarnal's fayth are all Aeon Cores instead, then I can't really say because it hasn't been stated yet how this method of creating fayth strains the body and mind of the summoner.

No, he had children with a beautiful woman who... well it's difficult to explain, she liked those names Bria (Valm) had told her (Anli's eye for example). (But at that time, Yevon had already disowned (renounced ?) those names) There is a dedicated chapter about his past which is very interesting. But you'll have to wait a bit. Anyway, they had a child for sure.
But.. he was an unsent by then  :o it makes little to no sense

Yeah... well you know, he was young :) He regrets a bit what happened at that time.
He reminded me of Bickson, that Luca Goers guy who belittled everyone because he was oh-so-awesome just for being in the Luca Goers.

Valm and Kush's story is far more interesting than Tidus and Yuna's so far, even though a parallel was drawn between them: the dedicated, loving guardian and the ever-so-obedient summoner.
By the way, how come Valm had children? Did he have them with Kush? Or did he meet her after becoming a father? Because it makes no sense for an unsent to have children: they are just drifting souls who want to finish their business before going to the Farplane.

And the story seems to tell us that Ifarnal was a dick, who picked this name because it's the 'god of beauty' and that he always tried to look cool and seduce people around. He was even unable to keep a summoning because he couldn't bond with his fayth.

Oh, I see.
But Valm seemed to think the Bedohls were just robots, when they were in fact humans. It's shown when he cuts a Bedohl's hand off and it starts gushing blood, he says it's "too realistic" and asked him to remove the blood or change its color. So, since Alb couldn't create mechanical Bedohls properly, he just spread the word that the human Bedohls were mechanical and was just teaching them how to fight and sent them to the front lines. So when Valm entered Alb's workshop and saw the Bedohls helping their injured comrades, he realized that they were actually human and that there were actually much fewer robots than Alb claimed there were. This could explain why Valm pitied them, even though he hated their guts.

EDIT: May I translate the novel to Portuguese? I own a FF Facebook page for my fellow Brazilian fans and, considering I'm responsible for lore and theory content, I feel like bringing this sort of content to them is constructive to the fanbase. I'll give due credit, of course. :)

Does this mean that Bevelle's weapons were similar to those used on Operation Mi'ihen and Home?
The Bedohls' creator, Alb, didn't seem to have any qualms on how they were used as tools of war; it seems really unfair that they apparently took the blame for the war and were considered outcasts, thus all the preconception regarding the Al Bhed seen on FFX.
It also seemed for me that Alb tricked everyone into thinking they were robots, when they were actually genetically-engineered (right?) humans operating machines. Why was this? Just because he was a sadist? Or did he have any ulterior motives?

Hiya!

I have been reading the translation since Chapter 1 and this last one left me so intrigued that I have to ask this!

Is the "Mage of Zanarkand" actually Yu Yevon?
It is mentioned in the book that "the Mage of Zanarkand, his daughter and his followers" are heretics and such... Does this mean the the Mage is Yu Yevon and his daughter Yunalesca? They were summoners, after all, and Yu Yevon was said to be peerless in that he was extremely powerful, moreso than the other summoners.

Another thing that ground my gears is the fact that, in this book, Bevelle seems to be using summoners whilst Zanarkand is using weapons. Wasn't it the other way around as stated in the games? Bahamut's fayth said that the summoners of Zanarkand didn't stand a chance against Bevelle's weapons, that's why Yu Yevon created that multitude of the fayth and summoned Zanarkand anew before creating Sin, destroying the original Zanarkand and browbeating Bevelle into spreading his teachings. Unless the Bedohls created weapons so powerful that they overpowered Zanarkand's? It's so confusing.  :-\

Does this also mean that Zanarkand created fayth the way we see them in FFX, since Yunalesca used Zaon to create his fayth that way, whilst Bevelle used aeon cores, like Ifarnal, Kush and the other summoners? Is that why the aeon core method practically vanished from history after the Machina War?

I liked this book! :)
Until now, it has nothing of the BS people had been saying, and it has raised a few questions that I'm making now!
Unfortunately, we're not having FFX-3 so soon.. :( Bummer.
