The Chronophage (時喰み Tokihami, lit. "Time Eater") are space creatures that feasts on a planet's time. They are typically viewed as a great cosmic evil for the chaos their actions inflict.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Chronophages are large ethereal beasts seemingly without solid form. They are serpent-like in shape and are typically large enough to swallow a planet whole.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Witch detects an ultra-high concentration of Ether in the Sakura Cosmos, caused by a Chronophage heading directly for the planet Guilst and consuming countless planets along the way. When the Chronophage arrives, it consumes 1,200 years of the planet's time, erasing countless lives while also ironically turning the crime-filled world back into a natural paradise; the disaster would come to be known as "the day of Guilst's cleansing". According to Creed, less than 10% of Guilst's population managed to escape before the Chronophage consumed the planet's 1,200 years of its time.
Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]
Time Consumption: Chronophages consumes a planet's time, causing the planet's history to be permanently rewound to an earlier state. This effectively creates a new "reality" that turns the planet's past into its present, which also prevents any time paradoxes that may otherwise occur.
- Existence Erasure: By rewinding time, Chronophages erases the existence of anyone that wasn't on the target planet in the past. Witch describes this process as being unavoidable.
Spaceflight: Chronophages are able to fly through space at high speed, allowing them to easily travel from world to world.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The name "Chronophage" and its Japanese equivalent (時食み Tokihami) loosely mean "time eater", with the former coming from the Greek words χρόνος (chronos, "time") and φαγεῖν (phagein, "to eat").
