That was pretty interesting. But dropping a warship on me is cheating... Take it back!

Id is a character and antagonist in Xenogears.

Id is an identity born during the physical and mental trauma Fei Fong Wong suffered when he was 4 years old.

When Id asserts himself, Fei's hair eyes and skin change color. His brown hair turns crimson, his brown eyes turn bright yellow and his dark tanned skin turns a sickly pale. His eyebrows also become thicker and more unkempt, and he gains a new set of armor.

When Fei dissociates into this identity, he becomes insane, destructive, and extremely powerful. Id's power is a manifestation of Fei's status as the Contact, a glimpse of what Fei could be if he chose to awaken fully. Due to the disassociated personalities within Fei, he is unique among previous incarnations of the Contact, being at the same time fully awakened, and yet not.

Biography Edit

FeiTorture

Myyah, as Karen, experimenting on Fei as a child.

Fourteen years ago, when Fei was around four or five years old, Karen awakened as the next incarnation of Myyah Hawwa, sealing away her original personality. When Myyah suspected Fei of being a new incarnation of the Contact, she conducted horrific experiments on Fei, taking him to testing labs and bringing in various humans and demi-humans who had a high compatibility with the Anima Relics. She would have them attempt to make psychic contact with Fei to forcefully awaken him.[1] This continual trauma planted the seeds for Id to later emerge.

Karen's Sacrifice

Karen's Sacrifice

Karen's death.

Things came to a head in 9985, when Grahf discovered the child Fei and attempted to meld with him. Fei's father, Khan Wong, attempted to stop him. During their battle, Fei was unable to contain his powers as the Contact, and released a beam of light that arced back towards him. Just before the beam could hit Fei, Karen regained control and used her body as a shield, protecting her son from the blast. Managing a final smile down at her son, Karen then collapsed over him, succumbing to her injuries. Fei was then taken away by Grahf, with only had a memento of her: her pendant—the Pendant of Nisan.

After his mother's death, Id is born.

In order to deal with the guilt and trauma of his mother's death, Fei's personality split into three parts: the 'coward', who turned inward and focused only on positive memories of his past, Id, who took the brunt of the pain and guilt, and Fei, the outside shield that had no memories.

Grahf traveled with Fei for about ten years, always trying to keep one step ahead of Khan, who was tirelessly searching for them.

In 9993, Grahf turned Id loose on civilizations such as Elru in order to cause chaos and destruction, as well to strengthen his abilities. At some point Kahran Ramsus was severely injured by Id, an event Ramsus still had nightmares of years later.

Khan speaking to Grahf and Id.

In 9996, Khan located Grahf again, and battled him in order to take his son back. However, Grahf passed into the body of Khan, thus forming a relationship very similar to that of Fei and Id. Khan, disguised as Wiseman, dropped off Fei in Lahan Village, with Id was sealed in deep dormancy in Fei's subconscious, in order to prevent Fei from being killed by Grahf. Due to reverting to his third artificial persona, Fei had no memory of his life prior to being fifteen years old.

Id reemerges in Fei when Timothy dies.

When Timothy, Fei's best friend, is killed in Lahan Village, Fei awakens Id once again after years of peace.

Whenever Id surfaced, Fei's Gear Weltall transformed into Weltall-Id, a blood-red Gear of incredible power with six glowing wings made of energy. Even without his Gear, Id is monstrously powerful and fully capable of destroying Gears bare-handed.

Citan, Elly and Bart fight Id in the Zeboim Ruins.

While exploring the Zeboim Ruins, Id demands Emeralda Kasim from Isaac Stone for unknown reasons. He proceeds to fight the group. After losing, Wiseman attempts to stop Id, and the scene ends on a cliffhanger.

After Fei witnesses the deaths of Erich and Medena Van Houten, Id awakens in Fei and completely destroys Solaris in Weltall-Id, causing it to explode and sink into the ocean, killing a massive amount of people.

Id is given peace near the end of the game during The Land of Bethlehem scenes, when Khan dies.

Id, ego and super-ego Edit

Due to the experiments and trauma Fei suffered as a child, his mind is split into three personas:

  • the Coward, who clung to positive memories of his past
  • Id, who took on the pain and trauma Fei suffered
  • the artificial persona Fei, designed to shield the coward from reality, and had no memories

Id is loosely based on the form of the subconscious mind according to psychologist Sigmund Freud, with distinct differences due to Id's origin and specific role in Fei's subconscious, versus the Freudian id. For example, the id is the only personality structure that exists from the start of a person's life, as opposed to Id, who was born due to trauma[2]. Likewise, the Coward and the artificial persona Fei could be seen to correspond with the roles of the ego and the super-ego in Freud's theory of the mind.

An example of the roles played between the three constructs is shown, in Disc 1 at Nortune, Kislev, when Fei enters his subconscious for the first time, and finds his younger self watching a memory of him playing with his mother. Fei wonders to himself if these are his memories, but then slowly turns to find another child. This child is left in the dark, and states: "You shouldn't be here."[3]

At some point, Fei develops a fourth personality, designed to feel and think nothing.[4]

Because of these different personalities, Citan diagnosed Fei with dissociative multiple identity disorder.[5]

Powers Edit

Id is a fully awakened Contact, giving him near-infinite control over the forces of reality, Ether. His ability is so great that it is physically impossible to measure the Ether response of him or his Gear, much like Grahf or a fully awakened Antitype.

Predictably, Id uses these powers destructively. He can create black holes, fire energy waves, or enhance his body to superhuman levels able to contend with any foe in close quarters. He also possesses telekinesis, able to, while piloting his Gear, lift an entire ship up and hurl it. He can also fly, and in one occasion, teleport.

The oddest of these powers is the ability to change his appearance. Even when Fei was a child, Id manifested as a full-grown adult. {cite} These manifestations also come with his outfit change, meaning that he likely generates the armor out of Ether itself, or at least stores it away using Ether and retrieves it immediately upon transforming.

As a boss character and during Kahram Ramsus' nightmare, Id is able to throw a disc on his opponent and using his original self's fighting style as his deathblows which he uses to destroy most Gears or defeating opponents using his bare fists.

Quotes Edit

  • "Heh... You. You've come to die, eh?"
  • "The one you call Fei is asleep. When I awake, he sleeps. That is why he has no memory of what I do."
  • "Fei is my subordinate. He cannot peer into my memories. He should not, in actuality, even exist. That man forcibly created his personality. Fei is a tenant in the room of cowardice..."
  • "Our father, Khan. He sealed up my personality in the deepest recesses of my consciousness."
  • "A coward like him does not deserve to be 'Fei's existence'. A pathetic one who has always fled from reality. He never did one thing against me when I control him. A coward who refuses to live. He should've been erased. But he continues to exist! Why won't he disappear? Dammit... it makes my skin crawl just being in the same body as him."
  • "You call him father? He who never did anything for you? It was because of his cowardly behavior... If only he had been able to protect me... If he had done that... mother wouldn't have died..."
  • "My purpose is the same as his... total destruction! That and that alone!"
  • "My power... couldn't save anyone. It only destroyed. I thought that I could only make a connection with others through destruction. So I had to destroy it all. People... The world... Even Elly..."
  • "Mother being so warm... To me... She always seemed... too warm... Fei. Take the memories I have within me. You must know what it used to be like up until now. Know our identity... about who we are. Then figure out what ought to be done. Our integration is not yet complete."
