Been gone a few hours. muggy_mountain, in response to your question about Anima and Seymour [SPOILERS TO THE END OF FFX]...


I think that Square meant for Anima to be Seymour's final Aeon, but I'm not 100% sure. Yuna was stunned by how powerful it was in Luca stadium.

*digs out game script for evidence*

Young Seymour: No! Mother, no! I don't want you to become a fayth!
Seymour's Mother: There is no other way. Use me and defeat Sin. Only then will the people accept you.
Young Seymour: I don't care about them! I need you, mother! No one else!
Seymour's Mother: I don't have much time left.


In another flashback, Jecht says about the same thing to Auron when exiting -- EXITING -- Yunalesca's chambers -- that he doesn't have much time left. From that I conclude that somehow, whoever's being turned into Final Aeon gets a countdown stuck on their heads by Yunalesca, and they rapidly become a Fayth.

If you use a Walkthrough or you're brilliant, you'll eventually talk to the Fayth of Seymour's mom in Baaj temple, to acquire Anima.

So, putting all the puzzle pieces together, it looks like Seymour's Mom died, became Anima, but then he didn't use her in the Final Summoning, because otherwise he would be dead, and she would be Sin.

Anima is a psychological term meaning the feminine aspect in a man's psyche, by the way.

*Nod.* I recalled (and have seen) all that...I guess I didn't think Final Summoning as she seemed concerned about his acceptance. And at such a young age, as well.

I suppose that's why I didn't consider it, but it is a very interesting and tangible possibility.

It's probably due to the fact that I hadn't considered Seymour carefully until writing my recent fiction...he always seemed so secondary to "real plot" to me. Initially, Seymour's character seemed to be a manifestation of Square's/"our" need to anthropomorphize evil. I've changed my ideas since then, and I think he's at least a complex character that brings out tantalizing story elements.
