The Graphic Bible of Code Lyoko
Date of the document & information
|This document is dated September 2003. So, let's define it correctly. It has no link to Code Lyoko Evolution. It is only the graphic bible of Code Lyoko. To be more precise, of Code Lyoko season 1 (while the general design of the series and of Lyoko notably evolved over the course of the seasons).|
At this time, the world of Lyoko and the general story were only rough drafts (following the repetitive aspect of season 1). The backstory and the story of Franz Hopper were not yet completely written. This document refers exclusively to season 1.
However, if you read the frame above, you know that this document was conceived even before the plot of the episodes for this season. Therefore, it is the oldest conceptual document known at this time within the LyokoSphere. The document presents significant information on the stages of the creation of the series, though. Here is a small abstract below of the differences between Code Lyoko then and now as we know it.
- The backstory was heavily changed:
Franz Hopper was a computer science teacher at Kadic Academy. It is told that he discovered the Supercomputer and that he named it XANA. He created Lyoko afterwards as well as Aelita and the virtualization process. During one of his visits to Lyoko, he mysteriously disappeared, most likely due to a bug with XANA.
- On Lyoko, there were some changes.
XANA isn't a program, but the Supercomputer itself. The number of towers isn't defined. To deactivate a tower also caused its stabilization. This tower would then no longer be able to send a virus to Earth, our heroes could try to deactivate all the towers to prevent XANA from antagonizing Earth.
- On Earth, there were also some changes.
XANA's field of action was more limited, because it could only affect the factory and the academy.
As for the Return to the Past, Aelita gave the heroes the power to retain their memories so that they would never forget that Earth is in danger.
