Keith Khaiel Sith and Lazarus

Hey guys! I am a big fan of all things Anima and, despite never really playing the RPG, I've read all the books and have done some research on a few topics.
So, Anima has a lot of really interesting characters. The one who really sparks my curiosity is Keith Khaiel Sith. Sad things is theres really not much about him. But I came up with a theory about him.

AS has previously stated in other forums the theres a connection between him and Lazarus, But they're are not the same being or evento originated one another. To be more specific, AS said that Khaiel is the one on the Gaia II: Beyond the Mirror cover and the throne alongside him belongs to Lazarus.
In the first Gaia book, there is a part describing a given place (can't remember the name) and says that os place place where Khaiel performed his strange ritual. The book also says that the supernatural energy there is much stronger, specially when it comes to summoning.

Moving on to Lazarus, back when Wen-M posted the pictures used to ilustrate Ophiucus in Dominus Exxet, he shortly named it "Lazarus", before changing it. In that drawing, theres a angel like lady that is floating behind him, almost as if protecting him (like he needs it lol). That like has a striking resemblence to the two iron ladies that adorn Lazarus throne on the Gaia II cover.

So, my theory is, could Khaiel have tried to summon Lazarus and was comsumed by him ( Just like he did with Anna) or he transported himself to Lazarus dimension?
Is Lazarus some kind of king and has his own kingdom or is he king of all supernatural? Is he has a throne..
And could Keith be his successor or simply a vessel for him?

Just like Elizabetta and her throne appear on Gaia I and evokes the idea of ruling, so does the Gaia II cover.

So, thats my theory. Not much of a theory, but questions I'd like to share.

If it's all impossible and I soud stupid, apologies in advance xD

Will cite the sources later, If needed. Furthermore, If anyone can share any kind of information on these two characters, I would like to know!

Sorry for the long first post!

As far as I remember, the main theory was that Nemesis is Keith (Rah's son, strongly hinted), Eljared is Elhazzared (Rah's presumably deceased wife. And it is less of a theory and almost 100% confirmed by Gaia I).
Lazarus is Donoban (Tadeus's adopted son, moderately hinted by AS and Gaia. Well, the exact answer was kind of obscure, but as a safe bet assume them to be the same, may be Donoban being a pupa Lazarus or hibernating Lazarus)

Eljared is pretty much confirmed by the books, unless AS is trolling us.
I have a compilation here of archives from one of the old spanish forums. AS stated directly that Donoban is not Lazarus. Which is really weird given all the hints from the books. I recall AS saying that Donoban is nobody. Don't really know the meaning of that.

Theres a theory that nemesis was born from the Ark of Merkabah, a Solomon Fortress where Millenium assisted andromalius in creating a protodeus. They're greatest project. That protodeus was nemesis.

I'm not mistaken, AS denied the theories that you posted. I used to believe in them to, as they're kind of suggested by the books. But the only thing they confirmed is that theres a link between Khaiel, Lazarus and nemesis.

In Gaia I, It is Said that the place Khaiel supposedly performed the ritual is now filled with some weird Crystal structures. In Gaia II, theres a description of a weird element that looks exactly the same as those Crystal, its called "El Reloj" (The clock). It Stay in the city of Arca, part of the Solomon Empire. The same place where they tried tô accomplish the Proyecto Eternidad (Project Eternity). These Crystal can be a clue of the link between all of them.

I Think khaiel has more of a connection with Lazarus, which in turn has a connection with nemesis, who eljared woke from his numbness in the Ark. The drawings and ALL the little pieces seem to fall together.

I can upload the archives and link It here, If you guys want. Theres a Lot of good info there.

Quite honestly, there isn't much confirmed for them.

But well...an angle that's probably worth exploring is to look into Xenogears. A lot of plot and inspiration comes from Xenogears for the Anima setting. When it comes to background plus other media (games, anime, books) that strikes AS fancy.

Analyzing Xenogears can be fairly long and complex...and probably would suffer a case of going too deep into the rabbit hole. There are many questions and mysteries...the xenogears databook/guidebook that came out awhile ago is almost necessary/mandatory to understand everything that's happening.

I remember hearing that AS was doing damage control when he said Donoban isn't Lazarus because of of Wen-M's slip up, but there's no way to substantiate that. My memory is horrible and who knows really.

Also, isn't the Ark of Merkabah and that whole plot dealt with in Ark of Sinners? Heard "ugh" things about that game, but that info is way too juicy to pass up if so.

Just look into Xenoverse and you're absolutely right! A lot of references and similarities! Thank you Very much! And It is really interesting on it's own.

Never heard of that, but It is really understandable. I mean, just the fact that Donoban's blood was used to create the Processed and they went crazy when Lazarus manifested himself, plus that Exodo was fighting Donoban (and unable to Win) and suddenly for beat up by Lazarus, is, at the VERY least, really suggestive. But AS keep denying It, so who knows the truth.

Just give us the books, AS!

Yes! That exact Ark! There's some good info. About the game, the mechanics are kind of rudimentary, which can make it really hard are at times (for the wrong reasons). But I've always played games alot more for their story. And that, as we all know really well, AS always delivers. So I recommend it. Plus, you can always buy the game Just to support them and watch a walkthrough on YouTube. Might sound a bit lame, But it's an option xD

I'm uploading all the material I have and will be posting the link here or maybe Will create another Topic.
