865   Concept of Midgard is formed The entire scope of Europe began to lose sight of national boundaries with the downfall of multiple countries. In the end, people came to call what was left of the region "Midgard".
    Rumors of the Cathedral City spreads The people began to call the mysterious city that appeared after the Great Collapse the "Cathedral City".
867
  Pythagoras Institute established Nobles and intellectuals from the former kingdoms escaped to the Cathedral City with little more than their lives and set up the Pythagoras Institute to study the disaster, calamity, and rise in abnormalities throughout the world.
868
  Chaldea Gate constructed

The Ten Days of Tragedy
Unfortunately, the Cathedral City could not accept all of the refugees for lack of food. In order to regulate how many people were allowed to enter the city, they built the Chaldea Gate in three days. Rioting broke out between the refugees and the City’s Self-Defense Forces, which continued to rage on for the following week. (Ten Days of Tragedy)
869
    One after another, people began showing strange “miracle” powers such as the power of destruction or the ability to find water veins in the ground.
870
    The Pythagoras Institute confirms the existence of “Magic”.
872
    The Cathedral City came under strict order and social function by those who used such “miracle” power.
875
    The Pythagoras Institute constructs a system to authorize and and keep track of those who use miracles, and thusly begin to dictate social status. Miracle Users, or simply Users, bring order and social function to the city.
878
  Chaldea Gate opens For the first time in ten years, the Chaldea Gate is opened and the city function expands. The Users begin local rule as faith and religion of the past begins to deteriorate. A new faith concept of “The Users and Miracles of the Pythagoras Institute Church” spread throughout the community.
882
  General Council of Chaldea  
885
  Magical Overload Accident When a magician loses control of his power, a third of the city is destroyed. The Church announces that it is thanks to the research done on Seal Magic that the magician’s power could be suppressed. (In actuality, the experiment on Seal Magic failed and caused bodily enlargement to the caster, who became nothing more than a giant foot that proceeded to trample and kill over 2,000 people in the Slums over a single night. The official announcement by the Church is as previously stated.)
888
  The fourth Cathedral City expansion program is executed. The growth and expansion of the city goes well.
The Church aims to expand their territory with the goal of ensuring the "everlasting peace of Midgard through prayer and magic."
890
  The Church Investigation Committee is established. Neighboring self-governing dominions accept volunteers to form the "Church Investigation Committee".
892
    Each self-governing dominion around the city is taken over in succession by the Church Investigation Committee and their large-scale magical weapons after the attending magicians allowed their usage. They essentially become a magical armed force.
895
    The power of the Church expands in each area.
904
  The Church expands throughout the Iberian Peninsula. The Church Investigation Committee sets out on an expedition across each of the self-governing dominions to gain control of these areas. Once order has been achieved, it becomes custom for the Committee to rule these areas on their own, setting up the first "Lords of the Land" system.
907
  The Tang dynasty in east Asia falls.  
910
  The Magic Academy is established. The Church pushes forward the study of magical power and sets up "Magic Academies" for full-scale study in each area.
912
  Magical Overload Accident Another magical accident occurs within one of the Magic Academies; however, with the use of Seal Magic, the extent of the damage is limited to the death of two people: the person whose magic went haywire and the caster of the Seal Magic.
930
    The building blocks of magic is completed by the Magic Academy. The spread of magic expands and becomes a common technique thereafter.
938
    In an attempt to retain power while it continues to expand, the Church enters into a mutually beneficial relationship with each Lord of the Land who had control of large territories.
951
    It is routine for powerful people of the Church to accept bribes by the Lords of the Land. Fights among the governing Lords is frequent in each area. The territories governed by these Lords begin to be referred to as the "Land of Mountains" and the "Land of Forests".
960
  The Sung dynasty is founded. The first Magic Academy President is elected. Since the newly elected president is not familiar with magic at all, this causes a void between the Church echelon and the Lords of the Land. Unease among the magicians in the Magic Academy begins to fester.
971
  The White Rebellion breaks out. Under the current system, the Magic Academy Presidential Elections are conducted by the Lords of the Land cause some young magicians to rebel. Although incensed magicians rally for the replacement of the president within the Central Magic Academy located in the Cathedral City they are suppressed in a single night (The White Rebellion).
985
  Famine breaks out. Wide-spread famine breaks out. The food supply from the surrounding dominions into the Cathedral City is greatly reduced for several years. In the world of politics, it becomes commonplace for the Church's upper echelon and influential people to give money and goods, weaponry, women and children to the Lords of the Land in exchange for food.
986
  The "Blue Corps" is established. Magicians dissatisfied with the corruption going on within the Magic Academy and the politics regarding the food shortage for poor class decided to form an underground organization to start a revolution. This group became known as the "Blue Corps".
990
    The Blue Corps becomes active. Many young magicians approve them. Even some of the Lords of the Land who are dissatisfied with the Church approve. The Church is said to be weakening as their armaments and talented people dwindle under the food shortage and engaging in bribery for many years.
991
  The Blue Rebellion breaks out.
The Church announces a large-scale renovation of the waterways and begins construction.
A large-scale revolt (the Blue Rebellion) breaks out in the Cathedral City by the Blue Corps. The Blue Corps occupies the Central Magic Academy with the hope to put a halt to the government and the Church. Their long-term goals include "abolishing the Lords of the Lands' power while establishing freedom and independence of the Magic Academy". Nonetheless, the Blue Corps is entirely decimated overnight by a Seal Magic attack that encompasses the entire city. At the same time, 80% of the citizens who live in two wards of the city die as catalysts for the Seal Magic. Even though there were some survivors, they appeared to have lost their minds in the confusion, construction to bury them alive was underway.
993
    After the "Blue Rebellion", the number of applicants approved by the Magic Academy to become legal magicians decreases sharply. The government and Church increasingly depend upon the military prowess of the Lords of the Land. Invested by the Lords, magical experiments by the opposition rapidly increases. The situation of the Magic Academy and the Church falls into uncertainty.
994
    Eventually, no new presidents from the lands ruled by the Lords of the Land are elected for the Magic Academy in each location. Even though they managed to obtain independence, with the loss of support from the Lords of the Land, the Magic Academy follows the same path toward decline.

Magical experiments by the opposition continue vigorously. The Magic Academy lifts a ban on a previously forbidden magical art. The balance of magical power in Europe falls into chaos.
995
  The Cathedral City is reduced to ruins. An unprecedented large-scale accident occurs within the Central Magic Academy in the Cathedral City. It is said to be a singing error of the forbidden art by a female magician, but the details of the accident are unclear. It is discovered later that dust from the explosion appeared to resemble a gigantic flower in the night sky. The scale of destruction from the accident encompasses the entire city; all trace of people within the city fades away as the city is reduced to ruins.

1/1 One's Novella Chapter One returns to the Cathedral City alone after defeating the Lords of the Land. The people greet her warmly as she parades on horseback to the Cathedral, all the while feigning her own smile.
1/27 One spends much of her time digging through the plethora of books in the library in search of the purpose of the Utautai's existence as she suffers from acute sensory overload. She contemplates on how all of the Utautai have excessive growth in various ways. With her self, it was her heightened senses, Two with her strength, Three with her rapidly growing hair, Four with her rapidly growing nails, and Five with her overdeveloped breasts. One chose Two to rule the Land of Sands in hope her cheerful outlook would be good for the people who live in such a wasteland.

Two is the first of the sisters to arrive in at the Cathedral.
2/14 Four is the next to arrive at the Cathedral. One recounts how Four's prone behavior to lash out at unforeseen circumstances contributed to choosing her to rule the Land of Mountains with its sparse population. She simply is not suited to ruling a larger kingdom. One choose Three as the leader of the Land of Forests because of her affinity toward odd creatures. She was more suited to handle the faeries and elves that far outnumbered the humans in the land. Three gave the faeries and elves their space to rule over themselves and therefore the kingdom found a sort of equilibrium as opposed to when it was ruled by the former Lords of the Land who wanted to subjugate the lesser races.

Four states her concern over the pending fight with Zero. One comes to the conclusion that change is part of being an Utautai. She wonders where her power came from, how she knew how to use it, etc. She cannot find any notes in history about the Utautai and wonders how that could be. She wonders of someone intentionally deleted these events from history. But for what purpose?
2/22 Five is the next to arrive. One chose Five to be leader of the Land of Seas because of the amount of troublemakers there. She first feared that Five would not be able to keep them in check but soon learns that she had misplaced her worries. One thinks on the rapid growth of all the Utautai and worries exactly how far it might go...how powerful they might become.

Going back to her books, One grows increasingly irritable at not being able to find any reference to the Utautai in any of the books in the Cathedral library.
3/4 Three finally arrives at the Cathedral on the very morning of the great conflict with Zero. One realizes the reason why she had been searching for answers in the books so hard--to be sure her convictions were true, justified.
  Zero and the other Utautai Sisters go to war Zero and Michael rage their attack on the Holy Capital to kill the five younger Utautai Sisters.  Together, the sisters completely oppose Zero’s attack.  One commands Gabriel to attack, which causes Zero to lose her left arm.  With another attack from Gabriel eminent, Michael steps in the way to save Zero, forfeiting his life.  Michael then is reborn as Mikhail.
  Zero goes into hiding in the Ocean Country Along with the reborn Mikhail, Zero goes into hiding in the Ocean Country to rest and recuperate after the onslaught in the Holy Capital.

Mysterious giant and red dragon appear

Events of [6.12] occur
June 12, 2003, 3:01pm. A huge white figure (here on referred to as a “giant”) suddenly appears in Shinjuku.

At the same time, a red dragon-like creature (here on referred to as a ”dragon") appears and it is unclear why they begin to fight.

An emergency meeting is held within the Self-Defense Forces to discuss methods of attack. An emergency countermeasures facility is established by the cabinet.

Same day around 4pm. The “giant" collapses due to the attack by the “dragon". In addition, due to the small mass of the fragments from the “giant” as it crumbled, the damage to the ground is relatively minimal.

Just after the fall of the ”giant", the “JASDF 6th Air Wing 303rd Tactical Fighter Squadron: Skullface” jets shoot down the “dragon". The dead body of the “dragon" is moved by the government to a research facility.

This event is later dubbed [6.12]. 56 were killed, 320 suffered light to severe injuries, and the total damage was estimated around 600 million yen.

A gag order was established over the mysterious events of [6.12] and media news reports via the Internet and the like were immediately prohibited. Theories of terrorism and plots by various other countries stirred up great confusion and chaos.

Summit conference is held. Three months after 6.12, a summit conference is held between Japan, America, China and Russia.
 
12
People infected with a strange disease are discovered. A strange disease begins inflicting those near the area of Shinjuku which causes their bodies to calcify and has a 100% fatality rate. Experiments on the infected are underway to find a cure. (It was first believed that the illness was caused only due to a specific condition, and thus the situation was met with optimism.)

Deaths caused by the unknown disease explode. Reported infections of the unknown disease increase. Those who are infected seem to be consolidated around the Shinjuku area.
 
4
People showing signs of increasingly violent behavior among the infected erupts. Among the infected, many have grown increasingly violent characteristics. Great numbers of the dead and those showing violent behavior gather in Shinjuku as the city's functionality becomes hallowed-out.

Japan firmly presses all countries around the world research this disease.
 
5
Infected, violent people run rampant in Shinjuku. The number of the infected grows exponentially. According to clinical tests, it is understood that among those who are infected will either "show signs of violent behavior" or "merely die".
 
6
The disease is named the "White Chlorination Syndrome" (WCS). The group of doctors release the results of their research since December 2003. Although it is yet unknown what causes the "violent behavior" or "death", it is believed to be caused by the same disease.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office is moved. It is proposed that Nagatacho and the Imperial Palace be evacuated; however, the Imperial Household Agency refuses.

Since Nagatacho would not be able to hide this information, they announce that they will remain in residence.

Outbreak of the "Research Facility Attack" The research facility which had housed the bodily remains of the “dragon” comes under attack. Culprit unknown. The research facility is reduced to rubble.

The remains of the “dragon” disappears with rumors that a religious cult or possibly North America is behind the disappearance (merely a conjecture level).

The case remains unsolved and further information regarding this incident is ultimately dropped.

Start of the "Gestalt Project"

“Project Gestalt” begins in order to prevent the “White Chlorination Syndrome”. Further research on the art of removing a soul from the body continues. The experiment of the Gestalt process on the first human succeeds. Furthermore, returning the soul to its original body also succeeds.

5
The research on "magic" progresses With a basic understanding of “Maso”, the technique to “produce something from nothing” is established by exploiting energy from a multidimensional world. This technique will from this point on be referred to as “magic”. (Simply, from cultivating the living tissue of the “dragon”, only Gestalts are able to use “magic” by transcending the wall between multidimensional worlds.)
 
11
"Operation: Destroy the Legion" by "magic" is executed From the ranks of “Gestalts”, training for those with an affinity for magic are given special training and begin experiments that involve direct combat with the Legion. The strategy was to wait for the day in which the Gestalts awaken to their true consciousness; however, this strategy nearly fails. The minds of those who are unable to endure the pangs of pride begins to collapse. (It is thought that since the Legion were once human, the situation appeared as though their souls were tampered with).
2015
  The dissemination of Gestalts fails to catch on The “Gestaltification” process is highly detested by the people and the establishment of the system remains incomplete. However, experiments continue, exploring the situation in which the body of a Gestaltified soul is lost.
2016
2
The drug "Luciferase" is invented The drug “Luciferase” was completed to delay the progression of the “White Chlorination Syndrome”. Military provision of this drug is planned.
 
5
The "Luciferase Army" is established A wide-range of people are selected for “Luciferase” drug testing. A military force of these individuals is completed.

The armed forces carry out a mission against the Legion and are successful. This movement gains momentum across the globe.

The “First Crusade” squadron is dispatched to Brazil in hopes of eradicating the Legion. However, after a fierce battle with the Legion, they are completely decimated.
 
12
Organization of the "Hameln Organization" The “Luciferase” appears to be most effective on young people. The drug is given to young adults with higher physical prowess, who are later promoted as civilian employees.

The “Fifth Crusade”, mostly comprised of teens, is organized.

The “Hameln Organization” is established as an international organization to scout for children of high physical ability from across the globe and raise them as battle machines.
2018
  Establishment of the "National Weapons Laboratory" Regarding the international “Hameln Organization”, calls to strengthen military force arise from both inside and outside of the Japanese government.

The “National Weapons Laboratory” performing basic studies on "Maso" is established and experiment with weapon conversion methods (the basic purpose of experimenting on individuals is to create those with superior abilities).

The NWL, however, conducts these experiments in secret under the codename “Purple”.
2019
  Deadlock between the "Legion" and the "Crusade" The conflict between the “Legion” and the "Crusades” comes to a standstill. Neither side seems to gain momentum in the never-ending game of cat-and-mouse (however, in the attempt to eventually break through, additional forces for the "Crusades” are continually dispatched).

The influential voice within the “Hameln Organization”, nearly its own country comprised solely of children, has a tendency to grow.

Japan’s economy is severely hampered, and most people who managed to survive migrate around Kyushu.
2022
    The total human population falls under 830 million.
2023
  World financial crisis expands as economic inequality grows The world falls into a great depression fueled by repeated attacks by the “Legion” and ever-growing economic inequality. Many areas around the world turn into slums.
2025

The process of Replicantification is established. Vessels are prepared for the Gestaltified humans. The Gestalts successfully entered the vessel.

The term “Replicant” was given to these vessels which were created by information extracted from the former bodies of the Gestaltified humans.

This series of plans first began more than 10 years previous and were simply called “Project Gestalt”.

New Experimental Weapon goes berserk at the “National Weapons Laboratory” “Experimental Weapon No.6” made within the “National Weapons Laboratory” goes berserk. “Experimental Weapon No.7” quickly completes an operation to seal it.

The danger of experimenting with “Maso” on human bodies becomes clear and further study is abandoned. The laboratory is also largely reduced in scale.

With the downfall of “Red-Eye”, the remaining Legions’ actions become erratic.

The captain of the "13th Crusade" succumbs to his wounds inflicted in the battle with “Red-Eye”.

Replicantification open to the public. The process of Gestaltification and Replicantification is opened to common citizens (some individuals in the upper class have already undergone Gestaltification and are being protected).

Many people willingly come forward to undergo the process.
 
3
The “World Purification Organization” is established The goal of the “Replicant System” succeeds in transplanting Replicants into an unconscious state while continuing to subjugate the remaining “Legion”.
    Progress toward the final stage of the “Gestalt Project” The entire human race undergoes Gestaltification and “Replicants” are created. The “Replicant System” is set up to continue this process indefinitely.

The “Gestalt Project” enters the final stage. While the Replicants combat the threat of the Legion, the Gestalts are put to rest until the threat of the Legion and the WCS has passed.

“Androids” stationed in different points around the world oversee the Replicant System’s progress indefinitely.

The androids instruct the Replicants to gather particles of “Maso”, the cause of the WCS. Priests working under the command of the androids perform a ceremony called “The Festival” to release the gathered “Maso” into another world.

Due to the extreme cost of Gestaltification, only the upper class has this option.
2033
5/5 “Project Grimoire Noir” begins

Sealing a Gestalt into a book-like vessel by a special technique from another world is successful. “Grimoire Noir” and “Grimoire Weiss” are the first of 13 “Sealed Books” that are created.

In order to return the Gestalts to their “Replicant” bodies, the planned “Project Grimoire Noir” requires an enormous amount of energy to operate both “Grimoire Noir” and “Grimoire Weiss” at the same time.

Once all instances of the “Legion” and the WCS are destroyed, this system will be used to return the Gestalts to their corresponding Replicants.

The Japanese Government declares “The End of the Legion”.

With a height of over 2km (it's ability to continually transform make it impossible to determine precisely), upon landing on solid ground, it causes an electromagnetic shockwave attack. A nearby Resistance Camp within 10km as well as the F3 guard squadron were annihilated. Likewise, various types of machine lifeforms as well as androids within a radius of 100km were also affected.
In a state of emergency, nuclear weapons were used but appeared to have no effect. The Ultra Gigantic Bio-machine showed no discrimination in who it attacked, as it was also seen attacking its own Bio-machine brethren. At the conclusion of the battle a month later, it submerged deep into a trench between the Izu and Odawara areas.

As humans fled from the surface of the planet to the Moon, they developed new battle androids to combat the Living Machines who have taken over the planet. These are the YoRHa androids.

This was a large-scale war that involved the “Living Machines” under the control of the aliens and the “Android” counter battalion on the human side. The war lasted six years from 11939 to 11945, both sides suffering the largest losses ever recorded. This was the first war the Experimental Weapons YoRHa were deployed.

The operation consisted of 4,500 units. The potential number of units lost in the mission was estimated at 85%. The preliminary bomb squad was completely wiped out during the descent. The 6th British Airborne Division, the 82nd American Airborne Division, and the 101st American Airborne Division were successful in infiltrating enemy territory; however, due to the annihilation of the supporting battalion, the mission ended in failure. The YoRHa units touched down at Omaha Beach. With the chain of command disrupted in 10 minutes after engaging the enemy, all communication with the units was lost.
