 Post subject: Lassic's Backstory
PostPosted: Mon Oct 8, '07, 8:52 am 
Lassic has been given two different histories to explain his actions in PSI. In one history, he's obsessed with immortality and falls under the sway of an evil religion, brought to Algo by outsiders, that promises eternal life. In the other, Lassic learns the nature of Algo as a seal and summons Dark Falz on his own, pledging himself as a servant of the monster.

Which of these histories do you prefer, or is there another version you like?

I prefer the first background for Lassic. He was supposedly a good ruler before he worried about growing old, right? In the 1st history's case, he became corrupted by the religion. (why does this remind me of Zio?)

The 2nd history doesn't make much sense on his part... If he could somehow find out that Algol was just a seal, then wouldn't others discover this as well?

Lassic does have a lot of parallels with Zio, when it comes to the religion and his body dissolving and so on. If there had been another entry in the story, I don't doubt that Zio would have returned as a zombie like Lassic/Lashiec.

I think the second history might be possible if Lassic found some really old books passing down some of the knowledge. On Rykros they still remember bits and pieces of the legend, so maybe there was some partial record hidden on Palma, too. As a side part of that story, Lutz supposedly researches Dark Force and learns more about it (including the 1,000 year cycle) after Lassic's defeat. There's no source given for Lutz's information either, though.

That does make sense that there would be some way to find out about Algo's fate. Noah/Lutz had to have some reason for sticking around another 1,000 years.

I originally prefered the first interpretation of Lassic, as it seemed more plausible for him to go from good to corrupt. But the second version makes him a better villain, since he's pursuing destruction for the sake of destruction. Much more consistently evil! :evil:

I have to agree. The first explaination makes a little more sense. And to be honest, isn't PS1 our canon source?

The canon of either backstory is debatable here. The games themselves don't give any backstory for Lassic (except maybe Generation 1, but who knows what it says given lack of a translation). The backstories come from the English PS1 manual and the PS Compendium book. Neither source is necessarily reliable, but both come from Sega.

The second story justifies why Arisa's father (King of Parma) has died and why Lassic became a king. It also justifies why she was kept with Motavia governor who latter hide her with a normal family (this looks like starwars)… hmmm... that family also died by "accident". If Lassic were a good person from the beginning there would be no need to hide Arisa.
