- "Here in this blasted land of ruin, what will you find? A light illuminating the way to the future? The fires of destruction? Or perhaps...?"
- —Left Voice, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey
The Three Wise Men are mysterious beings from Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey.
In Christian tradition, the Magi, also referred to as the Three Wise Men, are a group of distinguished foreigners who are said to have visited Jesus after his birth, bearing gifts of gold, myrrh and frankincense.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Edit
Upon the Investigative Team's entrance to the Schwarzwelt, they partially cause a catastrophe that causes three of the ships of the team, the Elve, the Gigantic and the Blue Jet, to be scattered and lost; this has severe implications for the development of the story. Mastema is depicted as their servant, though amoral and capable of manipulation and deception in hopes of attaining his goals above those of the Wise Men.
When upon important junctions in the story, such as the destruction of Ouroboros and the arrival to Sector Horologium right after the defeat of Maya they forcefully interrupt whatever's happening to contact the protagonists, who are ultimately those capable of deciding the fate of the Schwarzwelt and Earth by extension, and present to them their identities and intentions. They would explain the history of the Schwarzwelt, how the world was once populated with by an advanced race not so differenct from humanity; a time where all was good and at peace before they all fell victim to their own corrupted desires which brought forth the Schwarzwelt and brough about their own exteinction After their explaination, the three would aanounce their final plan for the world which is for the souls of all beings to be united as one with the "spiritually enlighted" with the strongest wills would live and rule over the world as a power while those with corruptable weak hearts are to all die; believing this to be humanity's goal of uniting all life under one reign with no desire or deep emotion to prevent strife. However, Louisa Ferre appeared and interrupts them, mocking their project as a lifeless, unmoving world with no true death and no true life.
Should the Law Path be chosen, the Three Wise Men appear a final time to bestow the protagonist and Zelenin with the Clement Bell Rare Forma. Mem Aleph mentions in the Law path that the Three Wise Men have some form of obligation to her, but by aiding the forces of Law against her means they have forgotten it.
