Anonymous said: Maybe I'm just asking for my own heart to be shattered, but why is it 99.9% canon that Milla can't just reincarnate Jude as spirit with his memories intact? (Sorry, I'm new to these games, so maybe in my Jumilla feels, I missed something obvious)
No, it’s okay, this is mainly touched upon in the side materials anyway. It’s briefly talked about on Milla’s side during the spirit world section, but the details are found in the world guidance book (or at least, that’s what Taleslations cites for their info). So don’t worry, you haven’t missed anything. ^^
Anyway, the way reincarnation works in Xillia’s world is that when a human dies their soul enters the River of Souls, where they are then cleansed of their previous personality and memories. Once they’re completely cleansed, they’re reborn as a lesser spirit in the spirit world.
At that point, provided the lesser spirit isn’t killed in some way (e.g. via spyrix), the lesser spirit lives out their life, aging and eventually dying (which takes a much, much longer time than it does for humans). At that point, the mana from the lesser spirit’s body is sent to the human world to become a spirit fossil, while the lesser spirit’s soul is put back into the River of Souls, cleansed of memory and personality again, and then reborn as a human to repeat the process all over again. (Also, X1 specifically stated that it was Maxwell that did this, so it would be Milla doing it, which makes it ten thousand times more painful in this particular instance.)
So in other words, I said that it’s 99.9% certain that this would happen because that’s just how it happens in this world. I suppose one could create an AU situation where Milla promotes Jude to Great Spirit because she loves him and they want to be together, and they are a canon couple so that wouldn’t be too farfetched I suppose, but … I don’t know. I feel like canon would lead toward Jude living a normal human life and then being reincarnated like the rest. It breaks my heart but I feel as though that’s the way it would lean, especially since pulling a spirit from the reincarnation process and keeping those memories in tact is so difficult. (See: what happens with Milla in X1, though admittedly that was the Four trying to interfere rather than Milla herself. Milla, as Maxwell, has a lot more power than they do.)
So it’s possible and is the happier solution, though again, with all the information we’ve been given in canon it doesn’t seem to lean that way to me, unless Namco says otherwise. ;_; It breaks my heart but I feel it’s true.
I’m suddenly so sad because Xillia seems to use a lot of the same mechanics I’ve applied to the original story i’ve been working on since 2003 and
