The Eclipse
« on: August 16, 2005, 12:28:23 AM »
I was reading that the eclipse came every 200 something years or whatever. But the God Hand usually come when "There ambition crumbles". I don't understand, was it Griffiths destiny to be at such a melting point when the Eclipse happened? :???:

216 years.

Well, that was the case for Griffith at least. We don't really have any information about the others.

Yes, it had been planned by the Idea of Evil, through causality (see episode 83).

Yep. Causality brings about the circumstances whereby a summoner is conditioned to the breaking point, leaving them little attractive option other than to go along with "the deal."

If the eclipse happens every 216 yrs, will it still happen again now that all 5 of the God Hand are present, and is it known how the members of the God Hand came to be, other than Femto?

Femto is the last member, completing the God Hand. So now they don't need to have Occultations anymore, they execute their sinister plan instead (to bring an age of darkness to the world, etc). Concerning the other God Hand members, we know very little about them, you'll have to wait in order to find out. :void:

I hope we get to see another of the God Hand members take a human form. Or maybe.. they're already in human form and wandering the world...

Incarnations happen once every 1000 years. So while they'll probably be taking forms like Slan did in the Qliphoth, I don't think we'll see them incarnated like Griffith.
