I'm actually really squicked about the whole Sol and Luna clan stuff added in GSDD. More so because I'm against the idea of dark and light as it's so cliche, but also out of simple bias.

But it was somewhat expected due to some very very light clues in the previous game (sol sanctum had those sol and luna rooms for one example). I just wish there were more hints about them because they still come off as completely wtf.

...Maybe. But then again, that may signify the end of the series, seeing as Alex is behind the scenes throughout the game, manipulating others to do his work and leading the main protagonists wherever he wants. He'd be awesome to fight, but personally, I can wait.

It would be fun to fight against Alex every now and then as a recurring and undefeatable boss throughout the series. Maybe have him test the party at times?

As for the whole "sol and luna clans" thing, if we can assume that the Umbra Clan is the equivalent of what everyone says is the "Luna Clan", then naturally, the "Sol Clan" would have to be called something like "Lux". "Lux" (or other equivalents) is Latin for "light" while "Umbra" is Latin for "shadow", not "dark". This is also considering that the word is nominative.

So, the Belinsk people who gained the ability to control "light" would instead be called "Lux Clan". But, it's up to the translators; they might decide to call them "Sol" instead. It'd just be a little awkward and grammatically incorrect as well as misleading in meaning....

As an unbeatable boss? There's a thought. I think it'd be an interesting twist if Alex saved the new party a couple times, tested them, guided them while secretly setting up traps and sending other forces against them. Act as an ally, if you will, until the very end of the game.

You're right about the clans' nomenclature, but personally, I wouldn't at all be shocked if Camelot changed the Umbra Clan to the Luna Clan. Symbolism. As you say, it's up to the translators, but I expect the symbolism. Ya get what I mean?

Precisely. :3 It would be just like him as well. It's pretty much what he's been doing the whole series, through others though.

Yep. (And rereading it, I've realized how nerdy I am....)
I also wouldn't be surprised if they actually added Sol and Luna as well as Lux. ^^; Heck, what's stopping them from going the whole Asian route and get some metal in there too. (Wood is with Earth, so actually, this might not happen anyway.

Yeah, but the true revelation is at the very end, not halfway through.

I know how you feel, but it makes me feel proud. Anyway, the only thing stopping them is that they want one or two characters per element, but the bigger the elemental variety, the bigger the party.
