*** But why now? He's literally been alive for the past 9,500 years, why suddenly break down so much to need a life support system?

** He's old. His body is breaking down. He needs a life support system. It just so happens that his life support system is fancy gold armor/throne.

* Why did Cain need a suit to keep him alive for the past 500 years? He's literally the oldest human on the planet at nearly 10,000 years old. Why would he suddenly need such life-extending procedures now?

* At the final battle, once Deus is "Defeated", everyone (Except Fei)'s gears are disabled. Except Chu-Chu is not using a gear. Why's ''she'' affected by this? I guessed that ''maybe'', the energy was coming from the same source as the gears (that weren't Fei's) was what maintained or allowed her to act in the giant form... but why didn't she just revert?

*** 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.

** It depends. The Tower of Babel, Fort Jasper, Mahanon, & the Anima Relic holding places (but not the whole dungeon) are definitely from the Eldridge. The Zeboim Ruins were supposed to reflect our modern-day world, so they were built on their own. Many of the buildings were put together by Solaris (probably the Ethos HQ, and definitely the Soylent System). Though in the optional lighthouse dungeon, there's a card you can find that describes the Eldridge. Whether Zeboim really knew about the Eldridge or if it was just an easter egg threw in by developer's is anyone's guess though. It's possible that the Eldridge could have influenced both Solaris & Zeboim's designs.

** 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.

* 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?

** 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.
