An illustration I made for my digital painting class, we had to do an animation  movie poster, mine looks like a book cover, but anyway, I like vegetation, twins, children, wings, angel, blond/white hair, It contains most of my favorite subject ! (The story  it’s about a journey filled with love, frienship, magic, supernatural, ANGST, hope etc…. etc…  etc….  !)

  Not a hard decision for either of them. Rouge planted a kiss on the very top of Harper’s head, hands on the human’s shoulders as a platform before vaulting herself over the pyrokinetic and landing perfectly on the other side.

Tales of Xillia Timeline

NOTE: A couple of entries need to be updated.

This is a timeline of the history of the world of Tales of Xillia, up until the beginning of the first game.

There are three versions of this timeline; one you can read in this post, and two that can be viewed in a spreadsheet - one using the localized terms, like the version written here, and another using the original terms for those who are more familiar with the Japanese version or dislike the localization’s policies when it comes to name adaptations.

  • Spreadsheets: [links taken down for revision]


  1. This timeline is spoiler-free when it comes to Tales of Xillia 2, so if you have only played the first game, you can read this without fear. There are, however, spoilers for all of Xillia 1.
  2. Trames is the name of the Rieze Maxian calendar and Primia is the name of the Elympion calendar. If you are reading this on Tumblr, hover above the Trames date to see its Primia counterpart.
  3. Sources: Tales of Xillia, Tales of Xillia Official World Guidance Book, Tales of Xillia Perfect Guide, Tales of Xillia Fan’s Bible, Alvin Chronicles. More details in the spreadsheets.
  4. All of the credits&reposting rules apply!
