Tales of the Abyss Timeline

Based on the timelines presented in this site. From various sources such as the game, novels, different guides, Drama CDs, anime and manga.

  • Discovery of Memory Particles.
  • Beginning of the Sephiroth War.
  • It is a battle between countries wanting to possess the land around the ten Sephiroth, the planet's fon slots.
(At that time, the world was divided in six major countries, themselves made of several smaller states. The main countries were Ispania, Franc, Keter and Hod.
The war first started between three of those major countries.)

  • End of the Sephiroth War.
  • Each of the ten most powerful countries got control over one of the ten Sephiroth each.
  • Professor Southern-Cross designs the Planet Storm.
  • With every country's approval, the Planet Storm is put into motion. With help from Keter, Hod goes to operate the Absorption Gate.
  • Birth of Yulia Jue.


(Yulia was born in the City State of Hod. She was an unprecendented genius in fonic artes and fontech and became Dr. Souther-Cross's pupil. Her ability to see the future was regarded as heresy and she spent a lonely childhood. She loved Cheagles, which were often used as test subjects, and considered them pets.)

  • Dr. Southern-Cross discovers the Seventh Fonon.


(According to a book in Tear's house, the Seventh Fonon was discovered by one country located near the pole. This is probably Keter.)

  • Beginning of the Fonic War.
  • The main countries waged war against each other to try and gain control of the pole.
  • It is said that half of the world's population perished in one month, and that the countries of Hod and Keter were devastated. Miasma started appearing on the surface and covering the world.
  • The people split into two factions, the "Foreseers", in favor of the Score, and the "Deniers", who were against it.


(During the war, many powerful fonic weapons were used, putting a strain on the Planet Storm, which started disfunctioning. The core began to vibrate and to emit the poisonous gas, miasma. The reason why miasma is emitted when the core vibrates is unknown.)

  • Yulia makes a pact with the aggregate sentience of the Seventh Fonon, Lorelei. She designs the Key of Lorelei, which harbors its power.
  • She revives Hod with her Fonic Hymns and draws a glyph at the Absorption Gate to rebuild the Planet Storm. She throws the Key in the Core once she's done.


  • End of the Fonic War.
  • Yulia reads the Planet Score and predicts two thousand years of history. She warns the fighting countries that the whole planet will be covered in miasma at this rate, prompting them to withdraw their weapons.


  • Yulia and her ten disciples propose the Float Project, a project based on her Planet Score that will enable them to escape the miasma by raising the land with the power of the Sephiroth.


  • Ispania and Franc start fearing Yulia, who is revered as a goddess by the masses. They buy her seventh disciple, Francis Daath.
  • They arrest her on the basis that she is planning to turn the world into the Qliphoth and imprison her.
  • Francis Daath founds the Order of Lorelei with the support of Ispania and Franc.
  • Beginning of the Float War, a war waged by Ispania and Franc against those who endorse Yulia's Float Project.


(Daath ran away with Yulia's First to Sixth Fonstones and based the foundation of the Order on them. However, as he came to know their contents, he was struck by fear and started to regret his deeds. Apparently his fate was written in them.)

  • End of the Float War.
    It resulted in Ispania and Franc's overwhelming victory.

  • Yulia is tried before the "International Court". She is found guilty and sentenced to death.


ND0001 (BD2714)
  • Ispania and Franc put the Float Project into motion, raise the lands, forming the Outer Lands, and leave their enemy countries in the Qliphoth. This is the beginning of a new era.
  • Francis Daath, full of regrets and fearful of Yulia's powers, comes to her rescue and helps her escape. Yulia forgives him, but he can not live with his guilt after all and commits suicide.
  • After that, Yulia gathers the people left in the Qliphoth and constructs Yulia City with them.


(Yulia named the headquarters of the Order of Lorelei "Daath" in memory of Francis.
Yulia had ten disciples, but only seven are remembered as the "Seven Sages". That is because two of them died in the war and Francis was excluded because he betrayed her.)

  • Yulia's first disciple, Freyr Albert, becomes the first Fon Master under Yulia's guidance.


(Yulia's whereabouts from this point are unknown. What is known is that she eventually settled in Hod, married Freyr and founded House Fende with him. Freyr's younger brother Walter Sigmund founded House Gardios to protect them.
At some point, the fonstones were broken and sent to the fon belt via the Planet Storm)

  • Local squirmishes between Ispania and a state of Franc occur and both countries start antagonizing each other.
  • Franc and Ispania are in complete opposition.
  • Ispania is betrayed by one of its states, Kimlasca, and falls.
  • Rise of the Kingdom of Kimlasca.
  • Franc is declining.
(The first king of Kimlasca was called Julius.)

  • The Principality of Malkuth, subject state of Kimlasca, declares its independance.
  • Birth of the Malkuth Empire.
(Malkuth was what was left of Franc after its decline. It was later colonized by Kimlasca.)

  • The Order of Lorelei acquires territory in the Malkuth Empire. They back the empire from then on.
  • Malkuth keeps gaining territory and ends up controlling half of the Outer Lands' surface.
  • Beginning of the War of Radiance.
  • Kimlasca loses some territory to Malkuth, but the details are unknown.
  • End of the War of Radiance.
(The Score played an important role in Kimlasca's victory, which leads Kimlasca to take the Order of Lorelei more seriously from then on.)

  • Beginning of the North-South War.
  • Kimlasca invades the Rugnica continent, which belonged to Malkuth.
  • End of the North-South War.
  • The Kingdom of Kimlasca gives Padamiya to the Order of Lorelei. Padamiya the becomes land of nonaggression.
  • Beginning of the Rotelro War.
    Details unknown.
  • End of the Rotelro War.
  • Kimlasca and Malkuth sign a peace treaty with the intervention of the Order of Lorelei.
  • Beginning of the First War of the Borders.
(This war occurred because Yulia's Fonstones started to fall from the fon belt and the Order of Lorelei declared that the country that would gather them would be the one recognised by Yulia as the only authoritarian state.)

  • End of the First War of the Border.
  • Only Kimlasca and Malkuth remain; the other smaller countries have been wiped out at this point.
  • Beginning of the Second War of the Borders.

  • Birth of Glenn Mc Govern, son of McGovern Snr.
  • Birth of Tritheim.
  • Birth of Peony Upala Malkuth, son of Karl V, Emperor of Malkuth.
(Peony's father had four noble concubines besides his wife. Peony's mother was the one with the lowest status. He had three sons and one daughter, none of them sharing the same mother, and all but Peony died in a struggle for the throne. Franz was his only legitimate child. The Closed Score predicted that Peony would rule Malkuth, which is why his father kept him confined in a manor in Keterburg, far from the political turmoil of the capital.)

  • Birth of Jade Balfour on Loreleiday, Sylph-Redecan 22.
  • Birth of Saphir Wyon Gneiss.


(Jade will later be known as Jade Curtiss or Jade the Necromancer, and Saphir as Dist the Reaper, Dist the Rose or Dist the Runny.)

  • Birth of Nephry Balfour, sister of Jade Balfour.
  • Birth of Marybelle Radan Gardios, daughter of Count Zygmunt Bazan Gardios and Eugenie Cecil-Gardios.


(Nephry will later marry Viscount Osborne and take his name.
Marybelle's birthday is probably between Efreet-Decan ND1987 and Gnome-Decan ND1988.)

  • Gelda Nebilim, an Oracle Knight known as the "Demonic Commander" begins the research on planetary artes under Fon Master Evenos's orders.


  • Birth of Vandesdelca Musto Fende, son of Lord Fende and Farmyriarica Satis Fende.
  • Jade creates the "Fonic Sight". This arte will later be forbidden because it is too dangerous.

Jade7-8, Van0

(Vandesdelca will later be known as Van Grants. His birthday happens between Gnomeday, Efreet Decan 42 and the end of the year.)

  • Gelda Nebilim fails a planetary arte experiment in Mt. Roneal, resulting in the death of many Oracle Knights.
  • After the accident, she leaves the Oracle Knights and opens a private school in Keterburg.
  • Jade creates his first replica at 9. It was a replica of his sister's doll.

Jade 8-9, Van0-1

(Nebilim noticed Jade's arrogance and could not help but think of herself, how she was before, and that made her worried.)

  • Birth of Jozette Cecil, daughter of Jacqueline Cecil and Gilmore Tinker-Cecil.
  • Using Saphir as a bait, Jade enters the mansion where Prince Peony was locked up and meets him.
  • Following Peony's idea, Jade and Saphir became the link between his mansion and the outside world.
  • Later, Jade, Saphir, Peony and Nephry enter Nebilim's school.

Jade9-10, Van1-2

(Nebilim's the only adult who knew that Peony was often leaving the mansion.)

  • Jade tries to use the Seventh Fonon, but loses control of his arte and burns down Nebilim's mansion. Nebilim dies.
  • Just before her death, Jade creates a replica of her with fonic artes, but it is a failure. He tries to dispose of her but she runs away.
  • Jade is adopted by the Curtiss family and changes his last name.
  • Beginning of the "Serial Fonist Killings".

Jade11-12, Van3-4

(According to the anime, Jade created Nebilim's replica when he was 12. This places the event between Loreleiday, Sylph-Redecan 22 and the end of the year.
At that time, Replica were created with fonic artes and were composed of any fonons but the seventh, though they often lacked a few and specialized in one type (they were really powerful when they used fonic artes of that type).
The Curtiss family is a famous (noble?) military family that has a deep faith in the Order of Lorelei.)

  • Jade is assigned to the Imperial Research Institute on Fontech and Fonic Artes. He starts fomicry research there.

Jade12-13, Van4-5

  • Jade and Saphir enter Grand Chokmah's Military Academy.

Jade13-14, Van5-6

(Apparently, they had military training during the day, and worked in the institute after classes. They focused exclusively on fomicry research after gratuating from the academy.
With Saphir's collaboration, Jade could create stable replicas made only of Seventh Fonons with a fon machine.
While they were away, Nephry and Peony, still living in Keterburg, grew closer.)

  • Birth of Gailardia Galan Gardios, son of Count Zygmunt Bazan Gardios and Eugenie Cecil-Gardios, brother of Marybelle Radan Gardios, on Loreleiday, Efreet-Decan 41.
  • Marriage of Badaq and Sylvia Oakland on Remday, Gnome-Redecan 35.

Jade14-15, Van6-7, Guy0

(Gailardia will later be known as Guy Cecil.)

  • Birth of Natalia Luzu Kimlasca-Lanvaldear, daughter of Ingobert VI, King of Kimlasca, and Olivia Kimlasca-Lanvaldear, on Remday, Rem-Decan 37.

Jade16-17, Van8-9, Guy1-2, Natalia0

(The real Princess Natalia was stillborn. With the assistance of Mohs's subordinates, Maggie swapped the princess with Meryl, born a few days earlier. Meryl then took the name of Natalia.
The change was foretold by the Score.
Sylvia could not bear losing her daughter and drowned in the port.
A few days later, Badaq tried to force his way into the castle to take his daughter back, and was exiled from Baticul after being arrested. He wandered Auldrant until Van found him and convinced him to join him.
In Shiro no Ashita, Natalia side, Sylvia had a vision of Meryl as she was looking for her and accidentally fell into the water, which would mean that her death was more an accident than a suicide. Well, it looked like a suicide for the onlookers and that's how they reported it to Badaq, so this version of the events still fits with what the game says.)

  • Birth of Luke fon Fabre (original), son of Duke Crymson Herzog fon Fabre and Susanne fon Fabre, on Loreleiday, Lorelei-Decan 48.
  • McGovern Snr. battles the culprit of the Serial Fonist Killings and seals her in Mt. Roneal.
  • Malkuth's army's intelligence division seizes records on Nebilim from Keterburg. It is likely that they knew the identity of the replica.

Jade 17-18, Van9-10, Guy 2-3, Natalia 0-1, Asch0

(Luke will later be known as Asch the Bloody.
He will be engaged to Natalia, but it is unknown when the arrangement was made. It is likely to be this year, though.)

  • Peony comes to Grand Chokmah to check up on Jade and reports back to Nephry, who is worried about her brother.

Jade18-19, Van10-11, Guy3-4, Natalia1-2, Asch0-1

(At that time, Jade was starting to be called the Necromancer and rumors about him bringing back the death with his research were flying around.)

  • Birth of Arietta on Feres Isle.
  • Beginning of the Hod War (the Third War of the Borders) on Loreleiday, Efreet-Decan 41.
    Using the skirmishes around the border as an excuse, Field Marshal Fabre from Kimlasca invaded Hod and gained control over it. The same day, Hod began its collapse and soon disappeared in the sea. It was the trigger that lead to a full-blown war, but it was stopped half a year later by Fon Master Evenos.
  • Jade participates in his first battle during the "Battle of Rotelro".
    The Kimlascan forces were lead by General Nicolas Steele, hero of Kimlasca and master of Lanvaldear-style archery. The Malkuth Forces were on the verge of being annihilated, but Steele got blinded by a flash that Jade caused and lost his eyesight. The situation then changed in favor of Malkuth.
  • Birth of Mystearica Aura Fende, daughter of Lord Fende and Farmyriarica Satis Fende, sister of Vanddesdelca Musto Fende, on Efreetday, Lorelei-Decan 1.

Jade 19-20, Van11-12, Guy4-5, Natalia2-3, Asch 1-2, Tear0

(Mystearica will later be known as Tear Grants and Arietta as Arietta the Wild.
Van was used as a test subject for fomicry experiments on hyperresonnance because he was the one on the island with the biggest affinity to the Seventh Fonon.
On Guy's 5th birthday, the Malkuth Forces had already left the island (Malkuth had sensed Kimlasca's invasion and had decided to abandon Hod). There was no time to take the fomicry machines, so Van was summoned to the institute and attached by force to a machine that could generate an artificial hyperresonnance. As a result, the hyperresonnance hit the Sephiroth Tree by accident and that caused Hod's destruction. His mother was with him at the institute.
It is unknown what happened to his father, and what he was doing at the time.
Pere arrived too late at the Gardios manor, but found Guy and left the island with him. They spent some time in St. Binah with a friend of Pere, until Guy decided to enter Duke Fabre's service.
The Sephiroth Tree went out of control. Apparently, a black pillar rose in the sky and fell down on the island, destroying everything.
Van was freed when the machines were destroyed. He found his mother knocked out near the institute and protected her by chanting the Fonic Hymn. They fell to the Qliphoth.
Another name for the Hod War was the War of Glory.
According to the magazines, the war lasted half a year. In the game, it says "one cycle of the seasons".
Jade didn't have many contacts with Peony after leaving Keterburg. He would usually ignore him, burning his letter without even opening them. But after the Hod War, he would come back to Keterburg from time to time and meet him, or send him letters. Peony would often try to persuade him to abandon Nebilim's revival.)

  • Birth of Ion (original), son of Malkuth peasants.
  • Peony is called back to Grand Chokmah by his father and prepares to become the next emperor. He keeps his correspondance with his lover, Nephry.
  • Near the end of the year, Jade fails a replication experiment and is gravely injured. Peony punches him and makes him realize how his death would affect him, Nephry and Saphir.

Jade20-21, Van12-13, Guy5-6, Natalia3-4, Asch2-3, Tear0-1

(Ion was sent to Daath because the Score said that he would be the next Fon Master.)

  • Birth of Anise Tatlin, daughter of Oliver and Pamela Tatlin, on Loreleiday, Shadow-Decan 46.
  • Oliver and Pamela get into debt and are bailed out by Mohs, who then makes them work for the Order.
  • Jade puts a ban on fomicry and abandons the experiments. He also distances himself from Saphir, who wants to continue the experiments.

Jade21-22, Van13-14, Guy6-7, Natalia 4-5, Asch 3-4, Tear 1-2, Anise0

  • Van enters the Order of Lorelei's military academy. He had already started believing in a world without the Score.
  • Guy changes his name and goes to serve in House Fabre.

Jade22-23, Van14-15, Guy7-8, Natalia5-6, Asch4-5, Tear2-3, Anise0-1

(Pere introduced him as his relative. Since Guy was too young to help Pere in the garden, he was assigned the task of entertaining Luke, who was four at the time. They were hired by Ramdas, and did not meet the Duke himself until much later.)

  • Van starts the Replica Project.
  • Tear and her friend Sein decide to join the Oracle Knights together when they are older.
  • Tear and Van discover that she has the ability to use the Seventh Fonon. She then starts studying fonology, because she thinks it will bring her closer to her brother.

Jade24-25, Van16-17, Guy9-10, Natalia7-8, Asch6-7, Tear4-5, Anise2-3

(Van graduated the academy and joined the Oracle Knights a little earlier.
He was also starting to express his hatred for the world to Tear.
It's also around that time that he came to the Fabre manor as a sword instructor.)

  • Asch and Natalia made their "promise" on Remday, Rem-Decan 37 (Natalia's birthday).

Jade25-26, Van17-18, Guy10-11, Natalia8-9, Asch7-8, Tear5-6, Anise3-4

  • Van introduces Ion to Arietta.
  • Dist enters the Oracle Knights.

Jade26-27, Van18-19, Guy11-12, Natalia9-10, Asch8-9, Tear6-7, Anise4-5

  • On her 23rd birthday, Nephry learns from the Score that she will marry another man.
  • Peony and Nephry break up.
  • Jozette enters the Kimlascan army thanks to Duke Fabre and becomes his direct subordinate.

Jade27-28, Van19-20, Guy12-13, Natalia10-11, Asch9-10, Tear7-8, Anise5-6

  • Luke fon Fabre (original) is kidnapped by Van and locked up in Daath's underground (in the Oracle HQ).
  • Birth of Luke fon Fabre (replica).
  • Replica Luke is brought back to Fabre manor and confined there.
    Luke (Asch) flees back to Fabre manor and witnesses his family accepting the replica. Despaired, he goes back to Van without revealing himself.
  • Fon Master Evenos dies of illness not long after the kidnapping. Ion succeeds him.
  • Arietta becomes Ion's Fon Master Guardian.

Jade28-29, Van20-19, Guy13-14, Natalia11-12, Asch10-11, Tear8-9, Anise6-7, Luke0

(Original Luke was kidnapped when he was 10. In other words, it happened before his brithday (Lorelei-Decan 48). Replica Luke's birth was probably before that date as well.)

  • Peony XI succeeds to the throne of Malkuth.
  • Mohs sees Anise's potential as a fonist and moves her family inside the cathedral. With good intentions in mind, her parents make a contract with Mohs and she has to enter the military academy.
  • Original Ion starts the production of his own replicas, the first of which he disposes of himself.

Jade31-32, Van23-24, Guy16-17, Natalia14-15, Asch13-14, Tear11-12, Anise9-10, Luke2-3

  • Battle in Northern Chesedonia. There is a violent confrontation between Malkuth forces, lead by Jade, and Kimlascan forces, lead by Brigadier General Cecil. The Kimlascan army is almost completely annihilated. An Oracle Knights unit lead by Van intervened, supporting Kimlasca. A soldier named Marcel Oslo, who admired Van, died in battle. Natalia visited the Kimlascan troops.
  • Van becomes Commander of the Oracle Knights.
  • Marcel's older sister Gisele investigates the Closed Score and discovers that Van sent his troops to the fight while knowing that they were going to lose. She tries to kill him out of hatred. Upon seeing that she rejects the Score, Van promotes her to his personal aide. She takes the name "Legretta".
  • Birth of Sync the Tempest.
  • Birth of Florian.
  • Birth of Ion (replica).
  • Half a year later, Original Ion dies at 12.
  • Replica Ion takes his place as Fon Master. Arietta is demoted and Anise takes her place as Fon Master Guardian.

Jade32-33, Van24-25, Guy17-18, Natalia15-16, Asch14-15, Tear12-13, Anise10-11, Luke3-4, Ion0

(The outcome of the Battle of Norhern Chesedonia was written in the Closed Score.
Apparently, Van convinced Marcel that he could reform the Order if he participated in the battle.
By teaching Tear, Legretta came to learn of Van's past, and started feeling attracted to him.
Sync was picked up by Van, who realized his physical power, and Florian escaped on his own and was later picked by Mohs and kept in case something happened to the 7th replica. The other replicas all died.
From 3 months before his death, Original Ion started switching with the replica gradually.)

  • In Yulia City, Tear is taught by Legretta, who follows the Oracle Military Academy's program. The training lasts around 6 months.
  • Tear is framed by Sein for killing a pet rappig, but Legretta discovers the true culprit and clears up her name.
  • During practice, Legretta nearly gets assassinated by the reformist faction. She starts thinking of making Ion the leader of the reformists.

Jade33-34, Van25-26, Guy18-19, Natalia16-17, Asch15-16, Tear13-14, Anise11-12, Luke4-5, Ion0-1

(Tear was first defiant toward Legretta, but then came to admire her.
Once the training ended, Legretta threw away her past and her desire for revenge and truly became Van's subordinate.)

  • Tear goes to Daath to follow the practice class in the academy. She trains under Cantabile.
  • Tear learns of Van's plan and decides to stop him, even if she has to kill him. Listening to her wish, Cantabile recommends her to Mohs. She is assigned to the Grand Maestro's First Intelligence Division.

Jade34-35, Van26-27, Guy19-20, Natalia17-18, Asch16-17, Tear14-15, Anise12-13, Luke5-6, Ion1-2

Asch 17 and 1 month, Tear 15 and 1 month, Anise 13 and 8 months, Luke6-7, Ion2-3

(There is a problem with Tear's age. Officially, Luke is 17 and Tear 16, but to have that difference, you have to be in the time period between ND2018 Lorelei Decan 1 and Lorelei Decan 47. However, at that time, Luke had already disappeared. It could have worked if Tear's birthday had been just after Hod's collapse...
Natalia's age is strange as well. Officially, she is 18, but she is only that age during the first two weeks after the beginning of the game. When she actually appears, she is already 19.)

ND2018 Gnome-Decan 2 (Gnomeday)
  • Luke comes back to Baticul with Ion and the other emissaries of peace.

Asch 17 and 12 months, Tear 15 and 12 months, Anise 14 and 6 months, Luke6-7

(Apparently, Luke only had 1-2 months left before his fonon separation killed him.)

  • Kimlasca and Malkuth search Auldrant for traces of Luke fon Fabre. Guy sometimes joins them.
  • Duke Fabre decides to build a grave for his son.
  • Jade starts fomicry again with the help of Saphir, whom Peony released from prison.

Thank you so much for this! ♥
Dec. 3rd, 2010 02:02 pm (UTC)
Wow! Thank you!! I love timelines and I always got lost in Tales! Now, I won't be anymore =)
Dec. 3rd, 2010 03:46 pm (UTC)
Wow, this guide is amazing! Thank you! One thing, though -- Tear tells Luke in-game that her mother was pregnant with her when they fell into the Qliphoth (I believe she tells him this when they're in her room, after he cuts his hair and they're preparing to take the Yulia Road to Aramis Spring), so she would have been born just after Hod's destruction. =) It's only a minor detail, though, so it's not too important.

Still, awesome work!
Dec. 3rd, 2010 03:55 pm (UTC)
Pregnancy lasts 9 months, you know ;)
So she was indeed pregnant with Tear when Hod was destroyed. Though it's true that it's weird that they put her birthday so late...

Did this come from one of the official books? I mean, it must have... but it conflicts with the official backstories I've seen translated elsewhere, at least as far as Anise's life is concerned. Weird.

Thank you for this! \o/
Dec. 3rd, 2010 04:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it all comes from various official sources.
What does it conflict?

Finally! A timeline that goes past the Second War of the Borders! Thank you! :DD

Also, I believe sagesoren is referring to Anise's story from the Character Bible. ♥

Oh my god this is amazing, thank you so much for all of this. This is something I've been hoping to get for ages ,-_-

On Guy's 5th birthday, the Malkuth Forces had already left the island (Malkuth had sensed Kimlasca's invasion and had decided to abandon Hod).

Way to be total jerks, Malkuth 8|; Hod really does get kicked around an awful lot, doesn't it?

And wow, I had no idea Guy went to live at Fabre Manor so early! Mind if I ask for the source for this? Just for my own reference.

EDIT: no sorry it's actually Kin no Inori (still vol.1)

Whoa, impressive work!

So, Guy and Tear are actually a few months younger than what the game said and Natalia's a bit older....my, my. XD

Well, the way I think of it is, the game gives us the age the characters were going to turn that year. It's not that the game was "wrong", just that it was glazing it over. I think every canon does this, to one extent or another. It's a lot rarer for you to get things like -- PS3!Tales of Vesperia, where there's a skit where Yuri turns 22 during the course of the game.

If you do the Nebilim sidequest, you learn that he survived ^^

this is amazing1 O: totally bookmarking and adding to memories. it really makes you realize how short the game is compared to its entire history, haha.

a question, by the way. i've been trying to figure out the ending of the game for...a really long time. at the end, "luke" comes back, but when the screen zooms in on jade, he seems a bit sad. if you talk to the cheagle in sheridan that used to be in ortion cavern, he tells this story about how he's the original, and he'd died once, but then he was born again and his replica died. and before the end of the game, when luke is carrying asch, you see asch's arm move. but when "luke" comes back, his sword is horizontally on his back like how luke actually carried it. do you know if the "luke" in the end is asch or luke in particular, or is this all just...random stuff? haha, since you obviously know a ton about the game, i was just wondering. :) thank you again!

The ending (and Jade's expression too) is up to the player's interpretation. However, there are many hints that point towards Luke rather than Asch:
* like you said, the way he holds the sword
* the fact that the sword is the Key of Lorelei, which became Luke's property when he defeated Asch
* his clothing is closer to Luke's style
* his voice sounds more like an adult Luke than like Asch (at least in Japanese)
* his hair is styled the way Luke's is when he has long hair
* he talks with Tear, Luke's love interest
* he tells her "because I promised", and Luke's last line before the epilogue is "I promise to come back"
* she was singing the Grand Fonic Hymn, known as the song of promise (I personally think that's what made him come back in the first place)
* it happens in Tataroo valley, the place where it all started for Luke
* it happens at night (all significant Luke/Tear moments happen at night, especially in the anime, while Asch/Natalia moments happen at sun rise or sunset)
* there are Selenia flowers all around, another important symbol for Luke and Tear
* the whole party is present (only Natalia has strong ties with Asch)
* they have all accepted Asch's death, while they are hoping that Luke will come back
* there's a whole CD dedicated to the party members believing Luke will come back and waiting for him
* that Cheagle, Star, died of fonon separation and absorbed her replica back into her body to survive. That's how the Big Bang works. However, Asch died of other causes before it could happen. Besides, Luke felt something flow into him. It's then safe to assume that here the reverse happened, as in the replica absorbed the original's body to be able to survive.
* Luke is the main character

There could be more, but that's all I have for now ;)
Of course, you can choose to believe it's Asch if you want, since the creators haven't given us a clear answer, but it would make less sense.
