The information given by the game e.g. Blank, Maeda & Eve's mailbox etc.. If anyone has any suggestion about this FAQ, any addition or to correct the story, you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your reading. Shall I give despair.. Sephiroth Contents 1. Time Zero's explanation 2. Who are the twisted? [kdsh1] 3. Who are the high Ones? [bjks3] 4. CTI formation [ndow7] 5. Hyde's plan [shog5] 6. Episodes list & plot [fvdk0] 7. Extra Ending scene [bnkd4] 8. EVE's mailbox [yusz5] Time Zero The story starts in a church during Aya's wedding ceremony with Kyle Madigan (a private detective who survived the mojave dessert incident along with Aya in PE2). The guests were: 1. Eve Brea (Aya's clone from PE2 & now regarded as her little sister). 2. Hyde Bohr (his relationship to Aya is unknown before time zero but he was an FBI member & so is Aya so she might have knew him from work). Those 4 people were present inside the church plus the priest 3. Emily Jefferson (the daughter of a british millionaire & a friend of Eve from school). 4. Cray (Also an FBI member). 5. Gabrielle Monsigny (she taught Aya sniping at the FBI & they were friend since then). The latter three were waiting outside the church although it was unexplained why. Suddenly a SWAT team attacked and shot Aya & her husband to be Kyle Madigan before their vows. Aya after being fatally injured grabed a pistol and aimed at Eve (this part when Eve during her dreams thought that Aya shot Eve), but then she started shooting at the SWAT team & killed one of them but sadly she was put to rest by the other members. Eve unintentionally unleashed an ability (Overdiving) in response to Aya's demise and overdived into Aya and took cotrol of her body & killing all the SWAT members. Overdiving is an ability to transfer one's psyche into another body. By overdiving into Aya, Eve did what: 1. Destroyed Aya's soul & it's pieces gave rise to the twisted. 2. Took control of Aya's body but forgot her memory & even her identity. (this explain why Aya looked afraid during the game although she encountered much worse enemies in PE 1&2). 3. Eve's body started to deteriorate without her soul & gave rise to the high ones who took over the physical bodies of Hyde, Emily, Cray, Kyle & Gabrielle (ironically the priest didn't turn into a high one ^_^). Hyde ( a high one now ) saw this infront of him knowing that Aya is actually dead & her body now possessed by Eve kept this to himself & told her that he found her on Christmas Eve 2010 outside a cathedral in a bloodstained wedding dress & later he knew that her name was Aya Brea. How come the others didn't mentioned to Eve her true identity? The answer is simple 1. Now they became high ones although all of them unaware of that. 2. Hyde was controlling them (just like a queen bee releasing pheromone that gives her control over her hive), so he was able to direct and command the other high ones. 3. They didn't know what happened inside (Eve overdiving into Aya) so after all they were thinking that Eve was Aya. What happened to Eve's body? Most likely it deteriorated & disappeared after giving birth to the high ones Why the SWAT team attacked Aya? This is the most important trigger of Time Zero is unexplained neither in the cutscenes nor in the game informations. I didn't figure out why they attacked the church it might be that somebody knew about her abilities from the FBI & wanted her dead (who can command the SWAT aside from the FBI?). Who are the twisted? [kdsh1] Aya's soul pieces gave birth to these creatures maybe a thousand year after time zero were humans are extinct (as mentioned in Maeda's mailbox with his wizard of Oz Geeks). These monsters inherited the ability to multiply & the characteristic strong bodies but they lack the intelligence. They are incomplete beings and defected and they are trying through building Babels to travel back in time to time zero & changing their defects. The Babels act as portals or devices to travel back in time and nourished by human bodies and containing the Queen which leads them. Who are the high Ones? [bjks3] The are far more superior beings than the twisted having great intellect & strength ( when Hyde went to the grand Babel Maeda mentioned that he was killing hundreds of twisted effortlessly also Hyde said that he prevented thousands of twisted from travelling back through time). They were created by the deterioration of Eve's body. They can take the physical bodies of human but they do have another form in which they look like the twisted. There are only five of them taking over the bodies of Hyde,Emily,Cray,Kyle and Gabrielle. They are also defective ( unlike the fast spawning twisted ) in which they lost the ability to reproduce. The death of a high one can cause a disturbance in time and space something Hyde used for his advantage later on. They are also capable of overdiving at least Hyde can ( during the final battle you can see him overdiving into other people and told Eve that she is not the only one with this ability). CTI formation (Counter Twisted Investigation team) [ndow7] Formed by Hyde Bohr and became it's chief researcher with the help of Hunter Owen often called BOSS soon after Eve was found by Hyde. This was Hyde idea and also he developed the overdive system with Blank (a korean scientist of unknown history) & other researchers. The aim of this unit was to send Eve back to the past & changing it. Boss didn't believe in this and he was constantly harrassing Eve & kept her under observation and even tried to kill all the CTI members. The overdive system was made from parts resembling that of a Babel. Later it was destroyed & all the CTI members were murdered by the high one of Kyle (directed by Hyde). Hyde's plan [shog5] Hyde was the guardian against the Twisted. During the encounter with him at the Grand Babel he mentioned that he killed thousands of twisted to prevent them from going back in time to time zero. But eventually he falls and wake up again in the cathedral at time zero to witness it again and the cycle repeat itself. This time he had a plan to stop this all by going back in time to time zero and together with Eve want to create the ultimate beings and negating the existence of the humans & the twisted by offering himself to Eve as a vessel. In order to achieve this he needed a Babel to travel back through time & to nourish it with great energy, and here comes the role of the other high ones. He manipulated Eve into killing all the other High ones to give the Babel the huge energy it needed to work something the twisted couldn't do because they depended on human souls only. Eventually he was killed by Eve at the grand Babel and then stopped again by Aya at time zero. Episodes list [fvdk0] 1. The Sacrfice incident (Operation Rainbow Dust) 2. The spanish Harlem (Operation Black Storm) 3. Operation red fog at the grand central station 4. North Shallows Tower (Operation Blue Hail) 5. Grand Babel (Operation Scarlet Snow) 6. Time Zero The story The story begins in the CTI building on christmas eve 2013. Eve haunted by her dream & mistakely thinks she is Aya. 1. The Sacrfice incident 2012 Christmas Eve The twisted attacked a crowded concert at club sacrifice resulting in many casualties among them the singer Ginger. Eve overdived into the past to reach the Babel core & to help in reducing the number of casualties. Here she encountered Emily Jefferson (high one) & killed her. What was Emily doing there? After her death her journal was found & in it she wrote that she was going to see (Rib). Later Maeda's mails revealed that Rib was none other than Eve (Because Eve was created from Adam's rib). Emily assumed that Eve might have been there because she knew that Eve was a fan of Ginger. During the encounter with Eve, Emily asked her to remember what happened back there in the church. 2. The spanish Harlem (Operation Black Storm) In the past Cray died in this mission. Eve participated to assist Gabrielle in saving Cray. she infilterates the Babel core only to find that it contains the Queen of the twisted (The one that commands the Twisted). Eve manage to save Cray but then Gabrielle disappeared and BOSS took control of the mission command instead of Hyde. BOSS lead Eve to an ambush in order to get her killed and tried to kill the CTI members (BOSS hates Eve as he thinks she is a Twisted & he is partially right but why trying to kill the CTI members?). Eve encountered Gabrielle After turning into a high one & killed her. 3. Operation red fog at the grand central station 2012 January Captain Russo's elite team assaulted the twisted after their sighting in the grand central station but the team got wiped out. Cray was a member of Russo's team but he didn't participate in the battle. Captain's Russo last transmission mentioned an encounter with a little girl with a face of a twisted (just like the girl in Eve's dream). Eve overdived in the past to help the team & to investigate the lead on the girl. At the end of the mission near the Babel core Eve encountered the little girl supposedly Eve (Eve still thinks that she is Aya). Cray showed up and pointed a gun at Eve & told her he killed Russo then lead all the other team members to their doom, because he thinks this girl is his daughter Isabella ( although in reality his daughter died many years before in an accident along with his wife). The game doesn't show us why he believed that but maybe Hyde manipulated him in order to get killed by Eve. Cray is the only high one that actually you don't fight him in the game. You only see him after getting killed by Eve & regaining himself. So who is that girl? Blank though that Aya is seeing the possibilty of Eve & she doesn't exist or it can be explained by Everett's many worlds interpretation (she exists in a parallel world). After this mission all the CTI members were murdered including Blank, Hyde was reported missing & the overdive device was destroyed (no more overdiving into the past). 4. North Shallows Tower (Operation Blue Hail) Present Time Two months later Maeda came to help Aya & to examine her scientifically as he says (Maeda is so creepy in this part he used to be a nice guy). Maeda discovered that CTI's survilliance cameras footage recorded that Kyle slaughtered all the CTI members & he is now in the north shallows tower. Eve went there to confronted Kyle about the CTI murder & to destroy the Babel by planting C4 in it. She managed to reach Kyle then he turned into a high one. After a fight with him Eve beat him then he regained himself & told her that eternity is in her & dies. It seems that Hyde also manipulated Kyle in murdering all the CTI members, because he knew she would go after him & kills him. also he destroyed the overdive device so that she can't go to that past & changing it. During that the US goverment launched a nuclear strike against the babel & destroyed it, but the Babels then started to merge forming one huge grand babel. 5. Grand Babel (Operation Scarlet Snow) After the formation of the Grand Babel the remaining troops attempted one last suicidal attack at the grand babel. Eve decided to help them after hearing from Maeda that Hyde have been seen there. Eve then confronted Hyde and he told her that he orchestrated all of this from the begining to return to Time Zero, to create the ultimate beings and stopping the cycle. During his encounter with Eve she told him that she want to save Eve and he said that he wants the same thing & he will not stand in her way. After the help of Blank, Kyle, Gabrielle & Cray souls she managed to defeat Hyde. Before dying he called her by her true name (Eve) & told her she'll repeat the same sin. Using the Grand Babel Eve returned to Time zero where she saw the whole truth that she is Eve & how she overdived into Aya's body & destroyed her soul. After she had overdived into her body again Hyde came & told her that she can take his body as a vessel and create the ultimate beings instead of the twisted & the high ones. But she refused after knowing this would annihilate mankind. Hyde tried to force her but Aya stopped him by shooting him. Breaking the cycle Aya told Eve that the only way to stop this was by switching their bodies (overdiving into each other) then Eve should kill her. In this way Eve will destroy both Aya's Soul (the source of the twisted) & Eve's body (the source of the high ones). Eve initially refused but then she did it... Christmas Eve 2010 Eve & Kyle are standing in the cathedral for their vows, Kyle looking at her when she said I Do & tells her that she doesn't need to be somebody else. Eve startled how did he know that she was Eve & not Aya. Kyle takes Aya's ring from her hand & tells her he is going in a journy to look for eternity (Aya) & then tells her happy birthday. Extra Ending scene [bnkd4] This can be seen after the credits if you beat the game twice. Eve was walking the street alone at night when she is approached by Aya like figure & tells here happy 4th birthday then disappear. Thanks to Archangel Bardiel this is his explanation: "Aya died in 2010, and possessed by Eve's psyche thus creating a new being (Aya's body with Eve's psyche without memories)...1st birthday. 2nd and 3rd are the years passed from the wedding day to the game plot. After the game ends (the second time), the date is 24/12/2014...the 4th birthday of this new entity that is the new Eve." EVE's mailbox [yusz5] This tells the story of the people after Aya's disappearance 1. Gabrielle A member of the SWAT team, married a man named Alex owner of the Pig Farm. Eve saw that she was happy but didn't talk to her because Gabrielle would not recognize her. 2. Owen Hunter BOSS Deputy director of the FBI He got arrested for leaking informations in exchange for cash. 3. Ginger the singer She got fatally stabbed by one of her fans 4. Emily Jefferson Graduated from college and became a teacher assistant and a researcher in the college of physics. 5. Isabella Cray Now she is 4 year old & also her mother didn't die. Credits I want to thank Square Enix for Parasite Eve series an addictive & really amusing game. I want to thank also gamefaqs.com for publishing this plot FAQ. Many thanks for Archangel Bardiel, I didn't have a clue about the meaning of the last cutscene and he gave me the order of Eve's birthdays. Copyright DrDark83 Email email@example.com 2011
