It just occurred to me that the Foretellers goal going forward is to summon their Master back. In fact, back in KHX, Gula believes that summoning Kingdom Hearts will bring back the Master of Masters, which is just like the Fal'cie who were planning to find and open Etro's Gate so that their creator Bhunivelze would awaken and they could be reunited with him.

Funnily enough, Nomura actually wrote the lyrics for Omnis Lacrima, which was a song created for Versus XIII that strongly alluded to Bhunivelze. So are these similar themes intentional or just coincidence? It's food for thought I guess. But I wonder if Nomura has extrapolated certain ideas and themes he didn't get to use in Versus and is now using them for Kingdom Hearts instead? Verum Rex is obvious, but there could be some less noticeable connections/parallels present.

On a side note, I also thought Xigbar being revealed to be Luxu was very similar to Ardyn. Both are wise and ancient figures masquerading as disinterested lackeys of the supposed "big bad". Of course that's assuming the Emperor had a bigger role initially and they actually tried to convince you he was the main antagonist and not Ardyn. But that aside, Xigbar and Ardyn do kind of have similar personalities/roles too.

I don't think these characters are exact parallels of Final Fantasy ones, but they appear to have similar narrative roles so far.
