Icon - Genesis.png Genesis

[Sword of the El, guardian of the El and Elrios]

Background

  • In-game Version
  • Nexon Version

The guardian knight who exists solely to protect the El and Elrios.

Elsword thought everything was over once he restored the El. However, when he came to his senses, he was already separated from the El and slashing through his enemies.

It was a choice he made to get rid of the one to protect the El, the world, and his friends, but it seems he still has a role to fulfill.

Everything will follow according to fate.

Elsword accepts the power and his fate bestowed by the El and becomes the guardian knight who exists solely to protect the El and the world.

He thought he heard voices. They called out a... name... But he could not remember what it was.
Elrian Sanctum was before him. He knew this place. This sanctum used to be a training ground for ancient Elrians due to its unique quality of attracting El energy.
...There's something strangely compelling about this site.

Description

Due to Elrianode not being fully restored, the Elrian sanctum also looked incomplete. He thought that somehow resembled him.
...He could hear voices. However when he listened closer, he was already at the entrance.
Is he being rejected by this place that's full of El energy? Or is it him that refuses to resonate with the El.
Wondering, Elsword headed back inside. Again and again.

As he continued to swing his sword at enemies endlessly approached him, Elsword began to think. Why did I pick up my sword? Why did I come to this place? Who... am I?
I thought I accomplished my goal, yet I...
He sees enemies approaching through his eyelashes. Ah... Is it because you're still here?

He wanted to protect the El.
And... He wanted to protect everyone.
That's why he decided on the easiest answer that would accomplish both.
One sacrifice. Such a small price compared to the El and everyone else...
Did something go wrong? Did the voice he heard know the answer? He headed deeper inside the sanctum as he cut through any enemy that got in his way.

Description

Though it was blind faith from his subconscious mind, fighting for the continuation of the El was indisputable for him.
That's why there were always questions he asked himself that were never resolved
Thoughts that haunted his mind whenever he resonated with the El made him waver.
A fixation with the El that he could not explain. The blind faith that did not question his fixation. The reason why he resonates with he El, and his feeling that allowed him to so easily answer Solace's question. And... The great destiny he felt at the center of the El.
In the end, he had to be separated from the El. If he wasn't born to become one with the El, there must be some other mission he must complete. And the one who can give him that answer is somewhere inside the sanctum.
When humans learn that everything was destiny and nothing can be changed, what do they feel? ...He knew the answer, but no longer remembers.
??? headed towards the sanctum. It was time to hear his answer from "destiny".

Trivia

  • Sephira's appearance is permanently changed upon job advancing, gaining much bigger wings not unlike those it had during Awakening previously, and its core gaining an extra winged ring around itself, potentially referring to the fact that Elsword is almost permanently resonating with the El now.
  • Due to continuous use of the El's Resonance, Genesis assimilated more with the Giant El, causing all of his hair to turn white and becoming a half-angel entity rather than human. Additionally, his pupils become white diamonds, matching the shape of Ain's pupils during Spiritualism.
    • As a result, Genesis' age is listed as Unknown, rather than 18 years old like Elsword's other paths.
    • Genesis is so far assimilated that it seems he has forgotten his own name and those of people around him, as indicated by the 3rd Job quest descriptions. This is similar to the Illuminous Phenomenon the El Lady experiences and may be related somehow.
      • It's possible the voices mentioned in Genesis' job change quest are the members of the El Search Party, as the mysterious voice in Forgotten Elrian Sanctum never refer to the player character by name with the sole exception of Daydreamer, whose 3rd Job changes the player character from Laby to Nisha.
  • During Awakening, Elsword's color scheme shifts to white and blue with yellow highlights while also donning a hood, making him appear strikingly similar to Ain's Spiritualism mode as well as that character's Richter path. Additionally, Sephira changes even further, sprouting 6 massive wings as well as being adorned with 2 trailers (replacing the ones from Genesis's own outfit) and 2 floating El crystals, giving him the same appearance as Ishmael and her angels, as seen in his awakening portrait.
    • Additionally, his eyes turn bright blue just like is the case for Knight Emperor, who displays a more natural form of El's Resonance.
    • Awakening in-game will overwrite your current avatar with the awakening form.
  • Genesis has a turquoise blue gem embedded in his suit and near the handle of his sword, in the same fashion as Knight Emperor, making them both the only Elsword paths to do this and display any significant forms of El's Resonance, as Rune Master and Immortal lack either.
