** It's answered in Perfect Works. During the Zeboim era, due to genetic decay in humans (they only lived to 30), Miang and the Gazel determined that humanity was unacceptable as parts for Deus, so Miang, as the wife of the prime minister, manipulated Zeboim into a full scale nuclear war to "reset" humanity. It's implied that she may have done this several times over 10,000 years, but this is the one we know about it. Later on, Cain, the Gazel & Miang determine humanity has reached it's final stage and found Solaris, and once the Gaetia Key is activated, Mahanon is raised and then the people (except the main characters) turn into Wels and become part of Deus.

*** So basically, it's not that it took 10,000 years of humans being sacrificed to Deus. It took 10,000 years to create pure enough humans that were worthy to be used as parts for
Deus.

* The entire point of Miang and the Gazel Ministry killing humanity over and over was to create spare parts for Deus. But how exactly were they getting these parts to Deus in the first place? Keep in mind Mahanon, the large part of the Eldridge that sunk into the sea containing Deus hadn't been raised for nearly ten thousand years. So how could they have been sending said dead humans TO Deus?

Added DiffLines:

** Karellan/Krelian designed Cain's armor. It had nanotech designed like his that any damage done to him would be immediately repaired. However, Karellan designed the armor so that only someone with Cain's genetic code could bypass the nanotech. In other words, Karellan plotted for Emperor Cain's demise ''500 years before it happened.''


Added DiffLines:

** Karellan likely fused Stone/Stein to his mech after he purged Ethos, the same way Karellan did with Hammer.

*** Before the reveal, Fei has been transforming off screen with no witness. The nurse might notice that he's gone from the infirmary, and the hangar mechanics might notice a gear leaving. But given that Id has super speed, they probably only catch a glimpse of it and think, "Hei, that gung ho kid is up and about again." As for how he got out of Yggdrasil and return, remember how gears can be summoned in and out? Maybe the ship has some automatic hangar doors for ease of access.

** It's also worth noting (according to Perfect Works) that Aveh was founded specifically to fight against Solaris' eventual return following the war + the Day of Collapse, while Kislev was built around a ship that Roni wanted to have repaired for that same reason. Infiltrating both sides and having them war with each other distracts them from dealing with the real threat.

** It was probably one of those final bosses that opted for more of a storyline-take on it like many other games of the time period, such as the strikingly-similar VideoGame/WildARMs2. Also, consider the fact that some players defeated a [[MarathonBoss marathon of five bosses]] beforehand, so making Urobolus tough would have been a little overkill.

** It's likely it was originally a focusing lens to concentrate laser fire to be more powerful.

** Citan really loves eating people, he just didn't stop to think others might feel differently. The only reason he didn't indulge himself when Fei and Elly did is that he'd already eaten like five boxes of people so he was a tad full.
