A video of the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology was shown at the January 18th 2011 Square Enix Conference. The video details the story of the many gods from the Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy series. The video was created by a team headed up by Yusuke Naora (art director of Final Fantasy Type-0). The text of the narration is arranged from the mythology book created by Kazushige Nojima (scenario writer of Final Fantasy Versus XIII). Yoshinori Kitase joked the mythology was written five years back and Nojima's book has been sealed away since, but they had to take it out just for the Premier event.[1]


The universe of Fabula Nova Crystallis is divided in two—the visible world, and the invisible world; the world of the living, and the world of the dead. In the beginning a single god, called Buniberzei, defeated his mother, the goddess Muin, to take control of the world for himself, and the defeated Muin disappeared into the invisible world.


Becoming the sole ruler of the world did not satisfy Buniberzei, who was certain all of the world was destined to die due to a curse laid on it by his mother. In order to stop this Buniberzei knew he had to destroy her. But because Muin had gone to the invisible world she could no longer be reached. In order to find the door to the invisible world Buniberzei created the first three fal'Cie, and the very first of all the fal'Cie was the fal'Cie Pulse. The duty Buniberzei laid on him was to open the world and search for the door to Muin.


Next he created the fal'Cie Etro, but unknowingly created her exactly in the image of Muin. Buniberzei thus feared Etro and gave her no power of her own. Instead, he created the fal'Cie Lindzei and laid on him the duty to protect Buniberzei from all who might seek to destroy him. Buniberzei also gave Lindzei one special duty: to wake him once the time would come.

Buniberzei then turned to crystal falling into an endless sleep.


Pulse wished to expand the world and created many fal'Cie and l'Cie. Lindzei wished to protect the world, so he also created many fal'Cie and l'Cie. Etro alone was powerless and could create nothing of her own. Etro thus tore at her body letting her blood flow to the earth and disappeared from the visible world. From her blood sprung humankind, creatures born only to die.
