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…. !)
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]
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.
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.
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.

A flurry of mist sprays up as I zoom through littered puddles. The buildings are a blur as I race through London, the steady hum of the engine my favorite victory chant. But my proud moment is fleeting as a familiar, silky voice ripples through the shadows.
“Miss me, Hiddleston?” I hear a gun cock and rest against my head.
And that, my friends, is why you always check the backseat. I glance at the rear view mirror and see her reflection staring back at me - brown eyes lined in black, lips of red, dress of white. I look back to the road, smirking.
AH, ELMORS FOREST … Even though he was only here to INVESTIGATE these DISAPPEARANCES, along with Reynn, another Nova MAGUS, he couldn’t help but feel more AT HOME in this beautiful, lush area than the bustling SOLIS CITY. He didn’t remember much of his PAST, though the BIO-LUMINESCENCE, even at such an early time in the morning, reminded him so of his HOME,GUADOSALAM. Indigo hues of flora encompassed the entire area, with rouge plants, shaped like BAUBLES,GLISTENING and lightening up the entire forest. The DARKENED shades, the encroaching plant life, it was all FAMILIAR to Seymour, which made it all the more easier to ATTUNE to his surroundings, to allow himself to be GUIDED by the atmosphere to their goal.
AS FOR HIS fellow Magus, he was unsure if she would be SUITABLE to such a job, but her MAGICKS, like his, were certainly powerful, GAME CHANGING, EVEN, and for one who was so accustomed to LONELINESS, the guado could honestly say that he ENJOYED her company, if only because his STANDARDS were not so high nowadays. At least for now, the formerMAESTER would do his utmost to uphold the job he had been given. FOR NOW … ❝LET US hope this goes smoothly.❞
