Ouroboros Insignia

Ouroboros (身喰らう蛇 (ウロボロス) Migurau hebi (Uroborosu)?) is a mysterious Illuminati-like secret society that has manipulated most of the events happened throughout Zemuria and its people. It serves as the main antagonist in the Trails Universe.

BackgroundEdit

Referred as "The Snake" and often "The Society" in short, Ouroboros is a shadow organization of unknown origins that lurks in its realm. How the society was founded and for how long it spanned through Trails history is left undisclosed, but assumed to have spanned through centuries while the events of SC date their involvement back to the Hundred Days War in S.1192.

For anonymous reasons, the organization only intervenes to rare "openly" matters; most of their work is done through subterfuge and deceit from employing jaegers and assassins. Their methodology ranges from creating unsubstantiated links, masterminding events, and planting the best agents into governments.

Although accounted as an “evil organization of terrorists”, some might mention their methods can be also antithetical. The organization is binned as every member share's the Grandmaster's belief, but their individual dedication of justice defers from each member's "dark past".

ObjectiveEdit

The organization's aim remains a mysterious only that it requires collecting all the Sept-Terrion of Aidios, to realize their master plan called the "Orpheus Final Plan". Of the artifacts discovered, the Aureole was eventually recovered by Campanella retrieving Weissman's wand. In Zero/Ao no Kiseki, Mariabell attempted to create the Zero Treasure in replacement to the original Mirage Treasure who died.

OvertechnologyEdit

Their level of technology is described to precede generations ahead of time, as the society research and reverse-engineered the lost technology of Ancient Zemurian civilization. Hence being able to replicate lost artifacts, mass-produced robots and gigantic battleships enough to overwhelm a national state.

  • The Thirteen Factories: The society's systems of private factories spread across Zemuria.
  • Archaisms: Ancient technological machines in the earliest civilization re powered with orbal energy serving as the society's lethal weapons.
    • Gordias-class: The advanced and highest level of the archaism units. Anatomized as gigantic humanoids to vanguard
  • Glorious: The society's gigantic crimson mothership at a length of 250 serges.
  • Astral Code (星辰の(アストラル) コード Asutoraru Koddo?): The society's private network system invented by Dr. Norvatis. Described to be superior than the Orbal Network in terms of information processing, as seen by the conferences in the Celestial Globe.

MembersEdit

Ouroboros is composed of talented executives and agents of superhuman capabilities, legions of enhanced jaegers.

Ouroboros is led by the mysterious figure known only those who refer as The Grandmaster, with those underneath his rule are various positions or ranks, such as the Anguis and the Enforcers.

The Enforcers can be considered to be the "officers" of Ouroboros. They are lesser in influence, but their physical capabilities can rival those of the Anguis.

SubordinatesEdit

  • Duvalie: Head knight of the Stahlritter whose swordsmanship and godspeed rival that of the Bladelord.
  • Ennia: The Stahlritter's archer/ace sniper.
  • Ines: The Stahlritter's halberd expert
  • Gilbert Stein: A Jenis Alumni and former secretary of Ruan's former mayor, Morris Dalmore. He entered the organization for incompetent beliefs of higher positioning.

AssociatesEdit

  • Jorg Rosenberg: The elder and head of the Rosenberg Studio, one of the Thirteen Factories residing in Crossbell State.
  • Altina Orion: A young girl from the Black Workshop who commands a semi-sentient archaism named "Claimh=Solais", later revealed to be an undercover agent of the Ironbloods, codenamed "Black Rabbit".
  • Jester Corps: The Jaeger Corps responsible for the Imperial Guilds Assault incident under Campanella's order. After the Corps' destruction thanks to Cassius's leaderhip, the remnants went underground whilst unknown they were just a decoy to lead Cassius away for completing the Gospel Plan.

Notes/TriviaEdit

  • The organization name literally means: "self-eating/self-receiving/endless serpent"
    • By the symbol's own definition, the snake eating its own tail represents the cycle of life, death and rebirth.
  • It is speculated by fans that the primary members of Ouroboros, the Anguis and Enforcers, have traits that correspond with the Major Arcana of Tarot. This speculation likely stems from members whose number is similar (22, or 23 if Campanella is considered) to the number of arcana (22).
    • By a similar vein, 23 is the minimum number of bells in a carillon (a musical instrument generally housed in bell towers), and bells play a prominent role in the Trails storyline; in the name of places such as Crossbell, and in overall presence in many locations, like the City of Rolent and at Thors Military Academy.
  • For mysterious reasons, Ouroboros never attempted to retrieve Leonhardt's sword Kernviter after his death, as it was forged by the Grandmster's power.
  • Most of the members individually have a substantial link with a main party member, as they share the same darkness.
  • Some also claim that the secret society is involved with the Recluse Cube incident during Trails in the Sky the 3rd, because the password "ORPHEUS", which was already present in SC onboard the Glorious, is also a password for a group of thieves aboard their airship.
