Abel's Ark.

Abel's Ark is a is a star system-sized object that was percieved as a giant Gnosis in the Xenosaga series.

Description[edit]

When it first appears over Old Miltia, Abel's Ark resembles a crystalline tree. The ringed object in the center is not a planet, but an energy field. After taking the Zohar, Abel's Ark is able to observe the lower domain more steadily. When Dmitri Yuriev rams into it with the Durandal that houses the Zohar Emulators, Abel's Ark transforms to resemble either a sword or a cross. The Ark's interior is mostly organic in appearance. The core is surrounded by four colored orbs, each of them contains a pocket dimension where three Zohar Emulators are held as well as being guarded by a heavily mutated Gnosis. It is said that Abel's Ark appeared when the Messiah was crucified.

Story[edit]

Episode I[edit]

Abel's Ark is first mentioned by Wilhelm in the ending, saying that Albedo is the only person who can open the door to Abel's Ark.

Episode II[edit]

Abel's Ark first appears in the ending after the Space-Time Anomaly disappears, in which it absorbs the Zohar and then disappears just as the Durandal were prepared to collect it.

Episode III[edit]

In Shion's subconscious, after witnessing her parent's death again, in addition to her subconscious self, Shion resonates with the Zohar, calling forth Abel's Ark. The Ark then makes its way to the planet Michtam because it seeks the "eternal circle": Zarathustra, causing many planets in its path to disappear in its wake, A 100-Series Observational Unit aboard the Durandal estimates that half of the Federation planets will vanish within 72 hours due to it. Dmitri Yuriev later hijacks the Durandal, loaded with the Zohar Emulators and slams it into the Ark, transforming it. Now aboard the Ark, Yuriev replaces Ω Res Novae's counterfeit Zohar with the real one, transforming it as well. KOS-MOS then confirms the Abel's Ark is not a Gnosis at all, but something else. As Matthews is debating on how to board it, Doctus suggests to gate out inside of the Ark and which they do, narrowly avoiding the debris on the way. After landing, party ventures on the Ark to confront Yuriev and manages to defeat him at the cost of Gaignun's life.

By the time of Yuriev's defeat, the Ark manages to reach Michtam and encircles the planet, not to destroy it, but to "observe" changes in the consciousness of the lower dimension. In the ending, Abel's Ark reconfigures its shape to resemble a cross as chaos and Nephilim performs a dimensional shift to transport Michtam to Lost Jerusalem.

Connection to U-DO

As the Ark exists in the Imaginary Domain, it does not exist physically and is often mistaken for a Gnosis. Abel's Ark is one of the "eyes" of U-DO to observe the Lower Domain, along with Abel.
