Born by the name of Kaiser Leospike in the coldest regions of Coerthas, he is descended from an ancient royal family that lived long before the Calamity began. His family had the ability to control time, and created technology that amplified it, which they called Chronotech. But then the Garlean Empire usurped his research, renaming it “Magitech.” Thus their powerful Magitech armor was developed.
Chronos Leospike, Kaiser’s father, was enraged at the Empire for ripping off his technology to further its goal of world domination. So he created something far more powerful than his Chronotech weapons. He called it PROJECT:ELEMENTAL. This project was to make himself into the ultimate bioweapon to fight against the Garleans’ tyranny. Its goal was to give Chronos the ability to tap into the elemental crystals around Eorzea and gain their powers; for example, if he drained an ice crystal, he would gain the power of ice for a certain amount of time.
PROJECT: ELEMENTAL did not go as planned. Chronos was badly wounded by how much power he drained from the crystals. Rather than risk his own life by placing the burden of carrying elemental power on his own body, he created a weapon that was not a living thing. This weapon, a glove, not only has the power to control time, but the ability to tap into and store elemental powers without its wearer getting injured. But then, something went terribly wrong. Chronos went missing. Not even the Grand Companies have been able to find him. Some rumors say that the powers of time grew too much for him, that he warped to another area of time; some say he died when he tried to fight the leader of the Garleans himself. Some say he was assassinated before he went to fight the Garleans…not even Kaiser, his son, knows the truth.
Five years have passed since the Calamity. Kaiser is known far and wide as a prankster; people call him Kaiser the Lucky because he is able to get away with anything he does, such as pranking Kan-E-Senna and blaming it on a soldier, or hiding within the hot springs and spying on the girls. Kaiser, now 16, has decided to become an adventurer and travel the world. Somewhere out there is the Elemental Glove, the truth behind his father’s disappearance, and perhaps his father himself. Kaiser will find them, and when he does, the Empire will face its final days.
