[[WMG: Hoaqin is the Slayer White, or at least one of the souls that made up White and is trying to resurrect the original.]]

First off theirs the whole soul eating thing, which was something that White was infamous for, as he went around killing thousands in order to collect souls. Then Pedro mentions how some members of FUG was against his "resurrection", implying that he was a person of high standing already in the organization, and that he was somehow killed. Haoqin also says that Pedro should "respect his senior" after he gets pissed about the comment on his height.

Then there's the fact that, along with the statement that "Hoaqin" is just an alias he uses, the characters for the name "Hoaqin" (호아퀸) is almost identical to that of the name "White" (화이트).

* Waaaay back in 1:29 while Baam is having one of his flashbacks about Rachel in the cave, you can see the three eye'd crest of Zahard on the wall. This could mean a couple things, the most probable being that Zahard is a legend outside the tower as well as inside.

In other words, Repellista used the omniscience of her Opera to manipulate Mazino and Baam into meeting by asking Yuri to get her a child of Zygaena, knowing Yuri would pass the request on to Mazino.

[[WMG: Zahard had a lot of influence OR still has a lot of influence outside the tower.]]

* Or, more interestingly that Zahard has a way to at least contact the outside of the tower if not leave it completely that he hasn't let anyone else know about. Instead of sleeping he could be ruling both the inside and outside of the tower.
* Could explain why Phantaminium entered and stormed his castle, cause he already knew of him from outside...

Wangnan was made a Princess of Zahard before anyone realized he was a boy.

[[WMG: Jaina Repellista Zahard was the one who arranged for the encounter between Baam and Mazino, using the knowledge of her Opera.]]

This is heavily implied, but since it's not explicitly stated and some people might have missed it:
* Yuri meets Jaina Repellista Zahard and asks her about Baam. Jaina Repellista Zahard feigns ignorance, but promises to search for him if Yuri gets her something. Yuri agrees, and right after she leaves, Repellista laughs to herself, with a "gotcha."
* Later, Mazino encounters Baam because he was sent to get the child of Zygaena.
* After successfully retrieving the child, he indicates (when delivering it to his manservant) that getting it was a request from Yuri.

It's been stated that he is pretty much a god and could literally end the entire story if he wanted to. The only thing that can possibly stop him is an Exis more powerful than him, and he is one of the five most powerful Exes. In short, he's essentially immortal and no character stands any chance against him, unless one of the characters awakens as an Exis. This would, of course, be an extremely unfair enemy to fight. Phantaminum will eitehr be the BigGood or to watch over the tower and congratulate people who make it to the "top."

* No connection between the two, Headon is the Guardian who first greeted Zahard and his allies, Phantaminium is an irregular who slaughtered all of Zahards top guards.

*This is half-true. WordOfGod (from the author's blog) is that Zahard is inactive at the moment; the acting head of government are the [[http://towerofgod.wikia.com/wiki/The_Three_Monarchs Three Lords]], although we don't really know much about them.

Another possibility, related to this one, is that FUG is actually pulling a KansasCityShuffle by having Baam be a dramatic, obvious threat in order to draw attention away from Rachel. Consider: FUG first forced Baam to openly declare himself as a regular, then hid him, then made him a slayer. Wouldn't it be easier to arrange things so he never declared himself? They wanted him to declare himself so they could then pretend to hide him, convincing the Zahard government that Baam is the crux of their plans when they're actually sneaking Rachel up the tower to kill Zahard.

He has a Zahard crest ring. He's ambiguously gay, at least for one chapter. He's rather pretty. He's been referred to as "The 10 Families Greatest Mistake". SIU plays up androgyny confusion with the readers and quite a bit in-universe.

As a side-effect, this means that should Zahard and the 10 Great Families do something to severely displease the Guardians, they may revoke the benefits granted to them by their contracts, including longevity, the right to rule, and, most importantly, protection from being killed by a non-Irregular.

Considering we still know next to nothing about Rachel or her goals, it's ''still'' too early to call Rachel straight up, no-questions-asked, pure evil. Not yet anyway. This troper is still going with the idea that Rachel is a WellIntentionedExtremist.

[[WMG: The top of the Tower is without Shinsoo, and only Irregulars may reach it.]]

The rewards are said to be at the top of the Tower. We may infer that by "the top", they mean the top '''outside''' the Tower, as it is ostensibly the highest point possible of the Tower. As it is a place outside the Tower, there is no Shinsoo, or at the very least, it is very scarce. Shinsoo is described as an energy vital to those within the Tower. By being born within it/living within it for long enough, your body becomes too used to Shinsoo and requires at least a certain amount of it in the environment to survive, similar to how we normal humans need a certain amount of oxygen to function properly.

Therefore, only Irregulars, who come from an environment where we assume there is no Shinsoo, may reach the top of the Tower and survive it's environment so that they may claim the supposed reward. However, by living too long inside the Tower, one's body gets used to Shinsoo and therefore, would fall into the same situation as all those born within it--thus, taking too long to reach the top results in being unable to finish the journey. This is the reason why Zahard and his cohorts have stopped at the 134th Floor--they realized this fact and also realized that finishing the climb could potentially kill them. Thus, they stopped climbing and settled for ruling over what they've claimed as theirs.

This is also another reason for why Irregulars are despised by most of them--because only they can finish what they started.

It's very likely the Tower Guardians are aware of this, and likewise FUG, having spies and contacts everywhere--which ties into why Rachel seems so adamant to climb the Tower as fast as possible: because she knows she's running on a timer; if she doesn't hurry, she'll not be able to survive being outside the Tower because of reaching the point of needing Shinsoo to live.

[[WMG: Contracts with Guardians aren't absolute.]]

Contracts, by their definition, are agreements made between different parties. If one party breaks the contract, it is made void. Thus, if one makes a contract with a Guardian to use Shinsoo (as shown in Floor 2), then breaks it somehow, one would no longer be able to use Shinsoo (or use it as well). However, Baam was shown to somehow command Shinsoo to attack Hwa-Ryun during the Crown Game--'''before''' he made the contract.

It's possible the "shackle" the 2nd Guardian spoke of to Baam may imply that it binds him to the Tower in the way that he is unable to kill Zahard because of it despite being an Irregular--but FUG isn't dumb enough to get a weapon that is useless in the first place against their enemy. They must be aware of this fact--therefore, even if Baam's contract binds him in this way, as he has shown he can use Shinsoo without a contract, he needs only break it and train until he can use Shinsoo under his own power.

How this will be accomplished, I do not know yet. Baam certainly has no intention to kill Zahard on his own, but probably killing the 2nd Floor Guardian will do it. '''Doing it''' is another thing entirely.

As a side-effect, this means that should Zahard and the 10 Great Families do something to severely displease the Guardians, they may revoke the benefits granted to them by their contracts, including longevity, the right to rule, and, most importantly, protection from being killed by a non-Irregular.
