WHO IS CHAOS?
chaos is a character in the Xenosaga franchise of games. Presenting himself as just another human, despite possessing strange powers, his original name was Yeshua - the Hebrew or Aramaic name for Jesus.
IS CHAOS ACTUALLY JESUS THEN?
Yes, and no. The Xenosaga universe uses many elements from the Gnostic Religion. In the Gnostic belief, there were actually two people who were Jesus. One was the man who spoke of God and drew in the listeners, the other performed the various miracles. Of these, chaos is the latter. It is even canon that chaos was taken in by the teachings of the man named Jesus, desiring only to help the world.
WHAT DOES THAT MAKE CHAOS THEN?
chaos is basically a divine being. In his universe, two domains exist, which are often referred to as either the Upper and Lower domain, or the Real Numbers and Imaginary domain. The Upper/Imaginary domain is for all intents the realm of God (U-DO) and of consciousness. The Lower/Real numbers domain is where humans reside. Although he resides in the Lower domain, chaos is connected to the Upper domain as well. He is also the universal failsafe.
At the time the Lower domain was created, so was a power that would let it be destroyed if it ever began to collapse, something that would destroy the Upper domain if it were to happen. At the time of chaos' creation, this power became a part of him. The moment he began to use his powers, the Lower domain began a spiral towards destruction. Now, although chaos' powers are what destroys the Lower domain, and although he began the destruction, humans and what they do can easily affect the speed of, and increase, the destruction of the Lower domain.
SO DOES THAT MAKE HIM DIVINE OR NOT?
In the technical sense of divine being, no. He did not create the world, nor can he see everything that may happen - although he can fully see the most likely outcome. Still, much of what he knows is by sense or reading possibilities. However, as he is a part of the Upper domain, and he can affect the route of the universe if he so desires, he is a divine being within the Xenosaga universe.
SO IS HE ALL POWERFUL?
Technically, he can be. However, chaos is hesitant to use his powers because of what they cause to happen. As well, this only stands for his own universe, and how he affects other universes is unknown. As well, he is written much like a rechargeable battery; he can expend a great deal of energy for a very long time, but then he must rest and recharge.
WHY ARE YOU SPELLING HIS NAME WITH A LOWERCASE C?
I spell his name chaos as compared to Chaos because that is how he spells it in canon.
