"Oblivion is the fate of all things.." - Caius
I am Caius, I was born in 700 AF, in a world where life could no longer be born, but death could happen, the world was dying and we could do nothing to stop it, only watch it go by.. I was part of the oldest tribe on Gran Pulse called the Farseer Tribe, within our Tribe was the Seeress, Paddra Nsu-Yuel, a girl gifted with the Eyes of Etro, allowing her to see into the future and give us prophecies, but this was a double-edged blade, for each vision she witnessed, her lifespan grew shorter, ultimately leading to her unpreventable death.. But for the Farseer, death was not eternal, she would be reincarnated and once again, go about seeing visions of the future that would in turn end her life.. I became a L'cie after killing the previous Guardian of Yuel, for that is how a new Guardian is made. During my battle with a fellow Paddra-Clan member, I was beaten, and before he could deal the final blow, an army of enemies seeking Yuel marched towards us, the superior warrior charged into battle but was slain.. I was filled with sorrow, I should of died in her defense but I was too weak, deeming myself unworthy, I released a Incarnate Summon, fusing my soul with my Eidolon thus making Chaos Bahamut, but doing so killed all the invaders.. And myself.. Etro looked up this as devotion and entitled to me her very heart, the Heart of Chaos, it would grant me eternal life and allow me to the Eternal Guardian of the Farseer, and with honor for the warrior that died in my spot, I took up his last name and became Caius Ballad, also known as "Caius, of the Ballad-clan, from the city of Paddra".
I fled from the city of Paddra with Yuel and a few others after the city fell from a prophecy of Yuel.. It was then that I realized the true meaning of eternity, I watched as countless Yuels died, only to be reborn.. How could this be a "gift"? in the years that followed a boy named Noel was born, the last life.. He single handled took down a Behemoth and gave me courage, I trained him as a Guardian of Yuel and when the time came, I instructed him in the final step, to kill me. But Noel refused and refused time and time again, replacing my courage with anger.. I fled, abandoned my role as Guardian of Yuel and used the Chaos to open a way into Valhalla, here, I would kill Etro and free myself and Yuel.. But she died, and her body crossed into the realm of Valhalla, thee I laid her to rest and watched as her body turned to dust, inside the dust, I was show the destruction of Coccoon falling into Pulse, and an image of Etro's statue.. In Valhalla, I met Lightning, Warrior Goddess who was charged with protecting Etro from my wrath, we clashed for an unknown time and finally, through a portal called Etro's Gate, Noel came, he wished for Etro to allow him to follow me and she did, Lightning then charged him with going back in time and getting her Sister, Serah and bring her to Lightning in Valhalla to stop this..
But two could play at this angle, unable to go back in time, I sent messages and visions to my past selves, and told them of my plan to cause Coccoon to fall into Gran Pulse and the amount of souls would open the Gate's to Valhallla forever and allow the Chaos to wash over the world, breaking the cycle and the curse on all the Yuels.
