Three damaged bodies[edit source]
I wasn't sure where to put this; the issue in question isn't mentioned on this page, but does concern the reports, so... *shrugs*
It is typically presumed (and I believe this presumption is mentioned on a couple of articles) that the "Three damaged bodies, unable to withstand purification" may be Shantotto, Prishe and Gabranth. However, if we make the entirely sensible assumption that Cid's records are in chronological order, the three warriors perish (Record 002) before the Warrior of Light has even been created (Record 006), let alone found by Prishe. In other words, it can't be them.
Incidentally, this also tells us that the fragments of the cycle featuring Shantotto, Prishe and Gabranth are probably not in the first cycle. It's possible that the purification mentioned in Record 002 is a mid-cycle one, as we see with the Warriors of Chaos in the twelfth and thirteenth cycles, but the fact that there are at least three being purified suggests that it's the end of a cycle, meaning that the records that follow cover the second cycle onwards.
It may even be that the records are split by cycle, which would place the Shantotto/Prishe/Gabranth/WoL events in the third cycle... but this part is just speculation.
