He's already old in the Elf Wars, and it's implied that and the X series were several decades off. Either his parents were on Sky Lagoon when it was crashed, or died in the crossfire of the Repliforce and Maverick Hunters fighting.

It's why he never thought eliminating the virus went far enough. However decades of resentment, as well as further, similar conflicts (The Maverick Hunters exterminating the works of Gate, Maverick Hunters Vs. Red Alert, Maverick Hunters Vs. The Rebellion) [[JumpingTheSlipperySlope caused him to jump the slippery slope]] and the idea of controlling Reploids became too attractive an idea to pass up, abandoning any good intentions he originally had to TakeOverTheWorld instead.

** This would make them closer to the Rebellion, except unlike either, their actions weren’t as destructive. And Neo-Arcadia themselves become Maverick by Zero 4.


In the X series, Zero had two sides: [[TheHero The Zero]] that fights for the Maverick Hunters and [[AxCrazy The Zero]] that infected. However there's a third personality: the mindless loyal soldier. Let's call them Zero, 0 and Omicron respectively. Originally, Zero was meant to be a combination of Zero and Omicron, however a defect in his program led to 0 being dominant. Thanks to Sigma, Zero became the dominant personality. After Zero entered a clone body, Dr Weil felt this was the perfect opportunity to have Omnicron the main personality...however while dominant, the 0 personality was still there and influenced Omicron, resulting in Omega: a God of Destruction with the insane soul of 0 and the loyal mind of Omicron. [[Sadist| Being Dr Weil]], this was a great combination and led to the Elf Wars.

Added DiffLines:

* An alternative intepretation of this WMG: Zero's third personality is the original identity under the Virus that was designed to control him, the one that angered Wily with his rebellious (and possibly heroic) ways and was sealed in a capsule for XX years while the Virus assumed total control of him. It ends up becoming his "true" dominant personality later after Sigma freed him from the influence of the Virus before the events of the first X game, and survived transference into his 'copy' body that he uses for the entire Zero series. It is entirely possible fragments of this true personality remain inside his original Omega body, thus allowing for his true resurrection in the distant future.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The Copy X in Mega Man Zero is the second Copy X to exist.]]
The first one worked perfectly, but was destroyed when he spontaneously exploded by accidentally touching one of the spikes in Neo Arcadia Tower when the Trans Server was down for maintenance. Ciel made a copy of him, thereby recreating the duplication of X.


** The same thing occurred to me, but I [[PoisonOakEpilepticTrees prefer not to think about it]] for the same reasons as the original troper. If we want to go that route, though, X's moments with Zero were never that... violent. And Leviathan is ''female''. What part of X's soul did ''she'' get?

However there were many things that made the suit a FateWorseThanDeath; [[SenseLoseSadness being unable to taste, touch or naturally sense the outside world]], [[AgeWithoutYouth still aging in a way]] (Weil looks pretty ghoulish, and we don't know whether he was old when he got into the suit or if he was a lot younger than he now looks) [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and the orange fluid must feel really weird]]. Noticing this, they gave up on it. Only when Weil dwarfed Adolf Hitler and Genghis Khan combined in mass death did they decide to use it, this time as a means of inflicting the ultimate punishment.

He was working with her ancestress that created the Mother Elf. He would've been ''significantly'' less ObviouslyEvil at the time, and if they were married it might explain how he was able to hijack the project. Obviously after the Elf Wars this fact was hidden or not spoken about, and Ciel is in no rush to reveal that she's related to the Hitler of that era.

1) He was the first victim of the Elf Wars. Weil decides not to attack X or Zero first, the former being the strongest hero at that point, and being likely heavily guarded by the 4 Guardians or other loyal subordinates, and the latter likely being heavily guarded himself since a released Maverick Virus, or even worse, maverick Zero, is a top-priority threat. So, he went after the strongest hero besides those two (Although I'd place Harpuia as stronger than Axl, personally) as a "test run" of his mobile WMDs. Axl gets wind and tries to warn X, but was killed by Dark Elf and/or Omega (Or even possibly by Weil himself) before he could do so, leaving Weil still with good publicity.

2) Axl was the quaternary antagonist of the Elf Wars (After Weil, Omega and Dark Elf), being controlled by Dark Elf. He's eventually put down by X [[before Zero joins in,]] having been too far gone to turn back to reason, and the catalyst for X's near DespairEventHorizon.

3) Ciel sought out Axl first since they knew where he was, and told him everything about the sick dealings of Neo Arcadia. He joins the resistance and is their best guy as they don't know where Zero is at that point or even if he could be activated. Eventually, Axl is killed either by Harpuia [[sparking his CharacterDevelopment]] or Copy X. This drives them to find Zero as they have no other choice at that point.
