the only real way that could be magus is if the demension split in cc effected how magus' life progressed, and it seems rather doubtful that he lost his memory. but obviously in the original timeline he is not guile, and never was.

Guile isn't the Magus.  It's just the truth.

However, if Guile (or Alf) were connected with the Zeal Royal Family, I'd suggest an alternate idea... that he'd be Janus, but not the Magus.

After Crono and his friends invaded Ocean Palace, I recall one of the survivors (perhaps in the Last Village) describing the whisking away of Janus and the Gurus into Gates.  During the flashback of the original event, all four of these people were taken into different Gates.  This time, however, it seems that Janus and Melchior entered the same Gate, leading to the possibility that Janus went to the 10th Century instead of the 6th, leading to a whole different life for him.  Thus, a mysterious, magically gifted young man in the 11th Century could be Janus Zeal and yet have no memory of the doings of the Magus...

Of course, that has nothing to do with this discussion, when it comes down to it.

I believe TTI makes it so that it can't be Janus.

What do you mean?

and.... I just thought what if the destruction of the world is related to this somehow, I know they are different worlds but just a theory.

A portal entered by one Janus cannot spit out two people.

I figured Serge was Janus based on Lucca's letter to Kid, since she says something like "maybe you haven't found him, and if you have, how are you Janus?" doesn't it?

I just beat the game for the first time yesterday and just got into this site an hour ago, so I'm no expert.

You wouldn't be the first to think that, Windi, but I think we've pretty much agreed that Magus isn't in CC as a visible/playable character.

That letter to Kid is basically a "what if" scenario (basically a "what if" scenario that actually plays out in RD, eh?)...Lucca has no way of knowing beforehand...I see it as a nod to fans of the series. Especially since it's been said that Magus is not in the freakin game...but w/e...I've heard stupider (along w/everyone else who's ever haunted the GameFAQs Chrono boards).
