Luis Virgil (ルイス・バージル) is a supporting character in the Xenosaga series. He is also a guest party member in Xenosaga Episode I and Xenosaga I & II.

Appearance and personality[edit]

Luis Virgil is a man with short, blonde hair and cyan colored eyes. The skin on his face has cornified as a direct result of his DME addiction. In Episode I he is seen wearing a Galaxy Federation issued A.G.W.S. pilot uniform, complete with pads and a helmet for shock absorption. Later, as the Blue Testament, he typically wears a blue hooded cape over his blue armor. He also occasionally wears his blue Testament mask when he wishes to hide his face.

Story arc[edit]

Episode I[edit]

Virgil is an accomplished A.G.W.S. pilot and holds the rank of First Lieutenant in the Galaxy Federation Marine Corps. He was stationed aboard the Woglinde. When Shion visits with Caspase and the Realians he is worked on, Virgil enters the room, proclaiming that he can't stand the stench of the Realians. He and Shion get in a debate about the rights of Realians. Shion supports the basic human rights of Realians, but Virgil points out that the company she works for, Vector, classifies them as merchandise and has installed an emergency override code to enable them to be controlled. After he leaves Shion wonders if he is a DME addict, someone addicted to the consumption of Realian tissue, and Caspase apologizes for his behavior, saying he wasn't always like this.

When the gnosis attack the Woglinde, Virgil takes part in defending the ship against them piloting his A.G.W.S. Shion runs right into the line of fire of Virgil and his allies and is nearly killed by them. Virgil yells at her afterwards, questioning what a civilian is still doing on the ship. Realizing that they can't harm the gnosis, Virgil grabs a device from Shion and uses it to control the Realians such that they can grab onto the gnosis and self-destruct. Shion claims this is a violation of their rights, but he points out that even Shion herself who had the ability to remove such capabilities from the Relians hasn't done so due to protocol. Virgil's gambit fails however; while he self-destructs a number of Realians they fail to stop the gnosis. With the arrival of KOS-MOS, Virgil joins with her, Shion and Allen, fleeing on foot while they try to fight off the gnosis, now made more vulnerable by KOS-MOS' activation of the Hilbert Effect. When Virgil stands in between her and some gnosis, KOS-MOS shoots and kills him, using the logic that there would be a large drop in her offensive efficacy if she was to try and avoid him. Despite her quarrels with him, Shion is horrified by the fact that KOS-MOS has killed him. As he dies, Virgil has a vision of Febronia.

Virgil shows up far later in the game at the Song of Nephilim, now hooded and masked as the Blue Testament. He tells Albedo to stop screwing around and get the job done, and stays there to hold up Junior and the others, transforming into the gnosis Ein Rugel and Doppelwogel. After the battles he claims it is useless to fight any further and that the laws they are governed by are too different. With Albedo safely away he departs. Virgil's final appearance in the game occurs after the appearance of Proto Merkabah. He appears standing out in space atop his E.S., Naphtali, complaining to the Red Testament about how he doesn't take orders from him and to stop talking in his head. The Red Testament tells him he'll have to get used to it.

Episode II[edit]

Virgil, as the Blue Testament, appears at the end of the game along with the Red and Black Testaments with their E.S.s. Virgil says he'd have appreciated it if supporting actors could stick to their roles, and Sergius is killed by the Testaments. He appears again in a scene with Wilhelm and the other Testaments talking about the Y-Data and welcoming the White Testament.

Species Testament
Gender Male

As the Blue Testament, Virgil wears blue full body armor and a wing-shaped cloak. He also wears a bird-shaped mask of the same color.

Unlike the other Testaments, Virgil is motivated by his past, rather than Wilhelm's orders, despite this, he still cooperates with the other Testaments with their goals. Virgil can take the form an angelic Gnosis. He can also projects a demonic figure to aid him in battle.

Lore[edit]

  • Virgil resents Realians, viewing them as expendable cannon fodder.
    • He also calls the Miltian Charter, which grants the same human rights to Realians a "load of crap".
  • Virgil suffers from DME addiction which is caused by the consumption of Realian flesh.

Database[edit]

Episode I

1st Lieutenant Virgil

BORN: T.C. 4735
AGE: 32 years old
A first lieutenant of the Galaxy Federation Marine Corps and a brilliant A.G.W.S. pilot.

He is afflicted with DME addiction (which is caused by the consumption of Realian body tissue), as evidenced by the condition of his facial skin.

1st Lieutenant Virgil (2)

How the man who was shot to death by KOS-MOS manages to show up in front of Shion, is unclear. What is clear, however, is that something had happened to him and he now has superhuman powers.

The fact that he was taking orders from Wilhelm's advisor indicates that he has some kind of connection with Wilhelm.

Episode III

Former lieutenant in the Galaxy Federation Navy.

Former lieutenant in the Galaxy Federation Navy. Following the disappearance of planet Ariadne, he was a member of the investigative force aboard the cruiser Woglinde.

He was a top-class A.W.G.S. pilot. He was fatally show by KOS-MOS during the Gnosis attack on the Woglinde. A vicious-looking man, the skin all over his body was cracked and splintered as a result of DME addiction.

He showed a prejuducial and cruel attitude towards Realians which bordered on outright enmity. While it is unknown exactly what brought on this hatred for Realians, it seems to be the result of an event which took place 15 years ago when he was a soldier during the second and third Miltian descent operations.

It is thought that he shared some contact at that time with Febronia--the Realian who sent Shion a message in the encephalon.

He later appeared as a Testament, a member of Wilhelm's vanguard force. His attempts to contact Shion even after he became a Testament appeared to be motivated more by his own past than the result of Wilhelm's orders.
