Some unussual things abotu this lighthouse. One, where do the elevators go when you take them down (they aren't seen at the entrance)? Second, how did Felix return to the Aerie after (presumably) taking the elevator down? They only go one way right? Tzion 19:52, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Hmm. Well, we know that Isaac & Co. elevate themselves up to the aerie by jumping onto a small light-blue floating platform that floats up there to drop them off, and likely Saturos and Menardi and Sheba used this platform beforehand. And possibly after the Venus Lighthouse was lit, one of these light-blue platforms appeared again to transport people on the top of the lighthouse down to ground level, rather than the large-floored platforms normally associated with "lighthouse elevators" (those don't work with Venus and Mars Lighthouse, it seems). As for question 2, I think Felix originally saw Saturos, Menardi, and Sheba off as they took a light-blue platform ride to the top, and he and Alex were to lead Jenna and Kraden back down through the lighthouse to its frontal exit - no elevators for him there. And when the four got to that "exit area" of Venus Lighthouse, Felix got his idea to confront his masters, and went back and backtracked all the way up through the lighthouse again, and maybe found some other light-blue platform that took him up to the aerie from the left side (this theoretical "other" platform ride I made up would not be visible to the player as a result of gameplay and story segregation). Just my thoughts, there's plenty of instances throughout the games where obstacles to the player's party are present in gameplay terms only and would not have been the same obstacles to the opposing party in story terms (Saturos' group can cross through Lamakan Desert without the story need to use Reveal, while you need to cross through Lamakan Desert with the gameplay need of Reveal).

Proxian vs. Human[edit]

Based on the events here and elsewhere, it would seem as though Proxians are affected by certain elements more strongly than typical adepts. While human adepts are simply people with powers and slight affinities, Proxians it would seem have become associated with Mars on the biological level. This could explain some inconsistencies such as Garet not being affected by the Mercury beacon. Garet, being human, is neutral to Mercury while Saturos, being Proxian, is biologically "allergic" to it. Tzion 22:52, 24 August 2011 (CDT)

This is certainly what the gameplay indicates, with human characters having far less extreme elemental weaknesses than enemies. TheOthin 03:23, 25 August 2011 (CDT)
Well, it's certainly an interesting theory, but unless we acquire a Proxian party member in GS4 (which I would totally approve of, by the way (can anyone say "Dragonform"?)) it will have to remain in the realm of speculation. Still, it couldn't hurt to mention the possibility in the occasional trivia section ;) The World's Hungriest Paperweight 10:17, 25 August 2011 (CDT)
