People of the Light could be a reference to the fact that Zeal was sustained by the Sun Stone...

Or it might refer to perceived civilization.

A young Melchior could make for an interesting character, but probably not Guru-Melchior. Though either way, I'd say he'd use neither CT based magic or CC magic, the reason being that Zealeans were drawing from Lavos. It was "refined" magic, and thus probably not analogous to what Crono and Co used. Likewise, with a distinct lack of Elements, an Elemental affinity seems unnecessary.

Nobody mentioned Cyrus? Cryus would kick Toma's sorry arse any day.

Yup, Cyrus managed to defeat Masa & Mune and was probably on par with Slash and Flea. Toma probably encountered a few dinosaurs in his exploration of the Giant's Claw though, so he's not totally defenseless.

I think it would be awesome, a crazy old man with a big sword like Frog's!

I think he should stick as a sage that helps the protagonist through out most parts of the game.

I could see Belthasar as more of a playable character (including Nu form)
