Both to raise awarness of Kryat's situation to the international community and to get out from underneath the mantle of being the Goddess reborn which honestly wasn't as useful to Kryat as she was taught it would be.

If she shows up in a later Far Cry game (or Assassin's Creed or Watchdogs, SharedUniverse and all) game, Bhadra will tell the protagonist they remind her of a brave man who had to make hard decisions while urging them to consider the consequences of their actions.

[[WMG: The Goat is Crazy Dhami]]
You can hear some of the priests at Chal Jama talking about a crazy priest named "Dhami" who's apparently been kicked out and now lives somewhere sacrificing animals (Goats, perhaps?). It's possible to find a letter that Sabal has written to this priest, thanking him for spiritual guidance. We know Sabal's religious observances aren't quite stable, and we know Dhami also shares his name with "Dhami Ashram" (I'm not a linguist, but near as I can tell this could translate to "place where Dhami prays/practices religion"), a cave where one of the Masks of Yalung is located. Sounds like Dhami may be a worshipper of Yalung, which makes him a prime candidate for the Goat.

[[WMG: Gopal was working for Pagan Min's old triad]]
It probably rankles them that Min remains a major player in the worldwide drug trade after they exiled him, so they're trying to keep tabs on him.

* Going with the "Ajay was served in the United States military" WMG, Ajay may have met Grant Brody in the army and was introduced to the rest of his friends including Riley who convinced to take up flight school and Jason who talked him into extreme sports, thus explaining his skill set. The only reason he wasn't invited along to their Rook Island vacation was Ishwari's illness keeping him home.

* This theory might sound ridiculous, but Ajay is more skilled at vehicle combat than any other Far Cry protagonist, and it would explain the strong sense of family loyalty.

* For someone who's supposed to be biracial, Pagan looks drastically white in trailers and promo images. The only exception is the prologue trailer, which is in the game, where we know for sure it's Pagan himself. Either Ubisoft whitewashed their own antagonist, or Eric's job of standing in for photo ops and TV went meta.

[[WMG: Ajay grew up in [[VideoGame/FarCry5 Hope County, Montana.]]]]
* It would tie in nicely with the next game in the series, and it would explain where Ajay Ghale became an expert at weapon handling and wilderness survival while growing up in the US. If his mother was afraid of being tracked down by Pagan Min's people, it would make sense for her to choose an extremely remote location full of heavily-armed doomsday preppers whom she could go to for help.

[[WMG: The Shangri-La plot is a much more fantasized telling of [[Videogame/FarCryPrimal Takkar's experiences in Oros]]. ]]
At the beginning of the Shangri-La story, Kalinag states how his king sent him on a journey to find Shangri-La. In ''Primal'', Takkar is sent to Oros by his dying mentor, and presumably the leader of the Wenja hunting band. Upon arriving to Shangri-La, Kalinag discovers his fellow Seekers slaughtered by an unknown force, and the land tainted by an evil force. In ''Primal'', Takkar ends up in Oros to discover his fellow Wenja scattered across the land, their numbers dwindling due to the cannibalistic Udam and the Izilia slavers. In the Shangri-La, Kalinag soon comes across the Rakshasa, who bear striking similarities to the antagonistic tribes in ''Primal''. Like the Izilia, the Rakshasa have very frail bodies, blue color motifs, are foreigners to the setting (the Izilia are from Mesopotamia, while the Rakshasa likely hail from a different world) are excellent archers, and also have close ties to fire (like the [[BossInMookClothing Rakshasa flamer]]) and explosions (like the exploding hounds the Rakshasa archers summon). Like the Udam, on the other hand, the Rakshasa are brutal and cruel, are clearly different species than the human players (the Udam are Neanderthals, and the Rakshasa are [[EldritchAbomination completely otherworldly]]), and have a clear SkeletonMotif. Further developing the Shangri-La storyline was Kalinag's encounter with the Sky Tiger, who becomes his companion in battle against the Rakshasa. Similar to this, Takkar can tame animals in order to use in battle, several of which can be Saber Toothed Cats, which are called "tigers" by the Wenja. This ability to use animals is even more similar, since at one point in the storyline, Kalinag discovers an elephant, which, like the tiger, he will use in battle against the Rakashasa. In ''Primal'', Takkar rides a mammoth into battle during his assualt against the Izilia's home. In another, much more minor similarity, Kalinag and Takkar both use mysterious relics against their enemies, being a time-slowing bow and the mask of Krati, respectively. Finally, there's the final battle against the Rakshasa leader, which, like the battles against the tribal leaders in ''Primal'', is a legitimate boss battle, rather than being a CutsceneBoss like other bosses in ''Far Cry''. One could see this battle as a representation of the destruction of both antagonistic tribes, rather than just one individual fight, as it cleanses Shangri-La of the demons, similar to how defeating the Udam and Izilia cleanse the land of Oros.



to:

* When Longinus talks about soldiers seeing the Rapture he said "we". Was he referring to himself and Ajay?



to:

** Perhaps he just ommitted the "anymore" at the end. Or he just doesn't see himself as a soldier in this particular war.


* [[VideoGame/FarCry3 Jason Brody]] could make a PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo, tracking across the Himalayas seeking inner peace after the events of the Rook Islands, though that may seem strange if [[spoiler: one picked the Kill Liza ending]]. He'd make a hell of a [[TheObiWan mentor]] to Ajay, though, as he's been where Ajay is but is unable to face becoming what he was before.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The next modern-day Far Cry will be in South America.]]
In Longinus' final mission, he states that he possibly would be traveling to South America, in search of the blood diamonds he sold during his time as a warlord. Knowing Far Cry's tendency to reuse characters and plot basis, then it's not unlikely that we will see Far Cry 5 (as we would assume ''Primal'' splits from the numbered entries in the franchise) following Longinus to another region. The possibility is extended, due to Far Cry's tendency to reuse animal species. That means that the leopards, jaguars, tapirs, wolves, deer, bears, etc. could all be recycled to be in South America. Plus, due to South America having a tropical (Amazon), mountainous (Andes), and flat grasslands (Pampas), then regional diversity could also be implemented, since all of these regions have been in past Far Cry games.

[[WMG: Kyrat deals with invasive species.]]
Interpreted as MisplacedWildlife, the Malayan tapir and goliath tigerfish are both native to non-Nepalese regions. Though not mentioned in canon, the best explanation for these animals' presence would be introduction to the ecosystem. One possibility is that British soldiers (as it is stated that Kyrat was used as a staging ground for the invasion of India) introduced the tapirs for hunting, and smugglers unknowingly introduced the tigerfish as eggs into the waters of Kyrat. These animals then bred, and spread across Kyrat as invasive species. It can be assumed that the tigerfish do more damage to the ecosystem, however, as the lake in which you hunt the Black Water Dragon for Kyrati Fashion Week, is absolutely ''infested'' with the dangerous fish.


[[WMG: Sooner or later, WatchDogs, AssassinsCreed and the Far Cry franchises are going to pull an Avengers]]
It's established that Far Cry 2, 3 and 4 are definitely in the same universe, with Far Cry 1 possibly being in the same universe. It's established that Assassins Creed is in that universe. Watch Dogs is in the Assassins Creed universe, putting it in the Far Cry universe. All of them share many common threads, and common themes of power corrupting, conspiracies and gambits that make Xanatos blush. It would make perfect sense from both a plot and a money standpoint to start making it even more crossover-y. While Watch Dogs tech in a Far Cry game isn't likely, what could be far more likely is the involvement of Assassins and Templars in a destabilized region. The Far Cry games are usually set in EldritchLocation type places, with them full of weirdness, possible magic and oddness. All of these have a perfectly logically explanation: the AbusivePrecursers already established in the Assassins Creed games. Their technology already borders on magic, so the stuff in the Far Cry games being remnants of it makes perfect sense. A little genetic experiments on plants and animals in Kyrat and the Rook Islands, along with LostTechnology worshiped for its magical properties, and suddenly the science all returns to Far Cry. As for how Far Cry can influence Assassins Creed? Guns! Seriously, it's pointed out in Assassins Creed 3 that guns > knives, and Desmond quickly realizes that's correct. So, destabilized region with the Assassins and Templars fighting a proxy war to get the resources, with the protagonist getting wrapped up in all of it as an arms dealer. Set it in an Eastern European destabilized region and you have the basis for tech, but not quite as advanced as we have.

* This would also complement Willis mentioning [[FarCry3 Jason Brody]] off-hand, and Hurk making reference to his first two tat-bros being "Jack" (Carver) and "Jason" (Brody). This would mean the protagonist to every main numbered ''Far Cry'' is at least mentioned in the game.
