L.O.K Timeline


Is it just me or is the timeline Of The Legacy Of Kain series....A Little confusing.Epecially Blood Omen 2 Does Vorador not get killed in Defiance,If so then why does he appear in Blood Omen 2 I have Looked up a great Website (www.dark-chronicle.co.uk) but it did not really answer my question

Blood Omen 2 was produced by an entirely separate team of artists, and the storyline (and quality) does not properly match that of the rest of the series. Most notably the fact that Vorador is alive again even though he got decapitated by Moebius's vampire hunters in Blood Omen 1, and Soul Reaver 2 showed a statue of Moebius holding the very real, fleshy dead head of Vorador.

I don't know the specifics behind the production of Blood Omen 2, but I imagine the team was given a basic list of plot points to follow and went on from there. I don't really consider it part of the greater LoK storyline.

Wahooka you lame-o, amy henning has written story for all lok games, including bo2 and she knows what she is doing. at the end of sr2 kain change history of nasgoth so the events of bo2 and defiance were possible. and about vorador - i guess it will be explain in future game (as far as i know it supposed to be explained in defiance, but the plans has changed).

reply

Actually, Amy Hennig had nothing to do with the production of Blood Omen 2, which is why a lot of the plot seemed off in terms of tying in with the plot of Soul Reaver 2. Amy did her best to tie up the loose ends to Blood Omen 2 with Defiance, and did a damn good job. However, the whole Vorador thing still has not been explained.

It is implied in B.O. 2 that Kain ressurected Vorador as he said in there "Do You wish to return to the grave old friend?"

reply

y the hell would kain resurrect vorador. id rather have no army than put up with him.

Isn't science fun Mickey?

reply

not the young kain the kain from blood omen one cannot create disiples much less resurect. it was more then likely the older kain from deffiance who resurected voador for the direct pirpose of helping his younger self weather his younger self liked or not voador was a key factor in many things and it could be that voador is alive in the older kains time line just at a secret place like a new mansions filled with his wives.

Blood Omen 2 is to the Legacy of Kain series what Devil May Cry 2 is to the Devil May Cry series.

Even without Blood Omen 2, Nosgoth's timeline is crazy as hell, but that's what makes it fun.

reply

Blood Omen to is to the Legacy of Kain series as FF X-2 is to the Final Fantasy Series

However i thought the events of Blood Omen 2 were possible because Kain saved Raziel from being consumed by the reaver thus Creating The Paradox, LAter Raziel goes back in time and is With Vorador when he is supposed to be getting Captured by the vampire hunters and Raziels influence on time allowed Vorador to escape

What is ultimately confusing in Blood Omen 2, however, is the fact that Kain possesses the Soul Reaver. If Kain (the elder) prevented Raziel from entering the Reaver thus making it the Soul Reaver, the Reaver was never found in the Serafan Keep where Raziel was consumed, and never taken to Avernus Cathedral where it is found in the first game - so where did he [Kain] get it?

One could theorise that because it was Avernus Cathedral - a place inhabited by the Guardian of Dimension, Azimuth - perhaps a Reaver from another time where Raziel had been consumed was summoned (by Azimuth), perhaps even from another dimension, and was later placed conveniently in one of the many rooms of the cathedral (where Kain would eventually find it). And that is why Kain (the younger) has it. It could very well be the case, however I doubt it - still, the paradox provided at the end in SR2 might have been monumental, and with every paradox the binding weakens (between the realms and perhaps even with other dimensions, and that could have enabled another Reaver to be summoned).

Other than that thing with Vorador - which could very well have been resurrected by Kain, or by the elder Kain when he changed the course of history with paradoxes (most notably the ones in SR2), he could somehow have survived the onslaught of Moebius' cutthroats and escaped - another thing that I find puzzling about Blood Omen 2 is when Kain meets Janos. The one thing I find missing: the vertigo.

In SR2, when two of the same constants met, there would be, as Raziel described, a vertigo; a sense of displacement. Like when the spectral Soul Reaver and the physical Soul Reaver met and collided. You can probably see what I'm getting at: the Heart of Darkness. The younger Kain still has it inside of him, as would be the obvious conclusion; hasn't been ripped out yet. As does Janos, reinserted and provided to him by the elder Kain (by the hands of Raziel, but that is irrelevant). Two of the same constants meet. So where is the vertigo? Where is the sense of displacement?
