Okay, we all know about the lost boss, who's slot was entitled "Selph", which means it was probably the Nightmaren's name, as well. Now, if you pay attention, Sega tell us that NiGHTS has eight levels, with Twin Seeds counting as two for some reason.

Now, with that in mind, and since Selph is in the slot before Wizeman, it's not farfetched that Twin Seeds could have had TWO bosses, with Selph being the boss for the first "act", and if that's true, Selph was probably a cool-looking level one Nightmaren like Reala and NiGHTS.

Another possibility is in the slot's name itself, "SELPH". Perhaps this is an "engrish" for "self", and somewhere in the storyline, you ended up confronting NiGHTS. (This is NiGHTS in to Dreams, folks. Anything is possible.).

A variant of this could be that Wizeman made another evil clone of yourself, like Reala.

Keep in mind that these are only theories, and are probably horseshit. Still, it's fun to speculate. Feel free to share yours too.

(Note to Trippy, Burakki, or some other NiGHTS artist: Since we have no idea what the "SELPH" boss could have looked like, I'd personally like to see your creativity at work. I would absolutely LOVE to see some fanart featuring your vision of this boss. Think about it, Selph could be ANYTHING you want, and it'd look wicked cool to see your talent used for making your own Nightmaren.)

I like your therory. I might be thinking of something else, but weren't the other boss names listed differently? So, The Selph could be Self. I never would have thought of that.

But an interesting point that TRiPPY made was that it may have been the boss battle with your own self. In which case you would not need to create a new boss model cause you have the model already, which is the player model. That is why there is no individual model data for the Selph boss.
Also, like TRiPPY stated, Selph could of had been for "Self."
It's not too unrealistic. The Wizeman had the letter 's' changed to a 'z.'
And we all know that the letter 'f' is the same sound as 'ph.'

I belive Selph is a pun for self, but... I have been toying around with drawing a random idea anyway... I think I will, just for the hell of it.

I have my rendition of Selph lying somewhere on my HD. It looks like a Deoksys on Steroids and Photoshop's Liquify tool. I'll dig it out if anyone wants to see it.

Admittedly the names on that list bear little relevance to the final names. ("MRS FATTY" anyone?)

The names given sound like Pet names... Hell, "Self" sounds a lot more right then another nightmaren if you ask me. You think maybe it could be the other dreamer's Wizeman? .... *gets shit tossed as 'em*

Couldn't it have just been possible that Elliot and Claris would have had their own bosses for Twin Seeds? I.E. - Claris fought Selph, and Elliot fought Wizeman.

That's much more likely. They would've also had separate final levels - "Spiral-Claris" and "Elliot's-City".

Awesome design and art, guys. ^_^ Mirror-Self-Selph, great idea. I tried designing something, ended up completely different from the idea of suiting the theme 'self', though, so it's just become something else. =P

Looks great. I would have done something Angel themed, knowning how I think. The name Selph sounds like the Engrish of Seraph to me, but I'm just a moron.
