Here are multiple mini-theories. Maybe steve is an escaped experiment of the Illagers, allowing him to respawn. They captured one (or more) of his relatives (which were the Ancient Builders) when they saw the end portal with them in the vicinity. He escapes with nothing on him, and you log on to the game, continuing his story. They experimented on him and put many souls in him, allowing him to respawn. *Ethan Vance* thinks that Totems Of Undying are made of a Villager soul, and that's why they have a Villager's nose. I think that when steve has a Totem and dies, the soul transfers to him and makes the souls in his body overflow, causing him to not die and continue where he is instead of dying and respawning. Maybe starting a hardcore world puts you in the perspective of a steve who was not experimented on, so he can not hold multiple souls, which makes him unable to respawn. Maybe the Evokers are actually made out of souls, and the evil souls control them. Maybe the Vexes they summon are actually part of them being torn away, and the laughter in them is the evil souls fulfilling their purpose, with the screams being the good souls which are forced to be part of the Vex. Maybe they drop Totems of undying not because they were holding them, but because the Totems are little bits left of them. Involving Minecraft Dungeons (spoilers): Maybe the Orb Of Dominance is made out of evil souls and it told the Arch Illager to sacrifice the Villagers (the good souls) and even his subjects (the bad souls) to create the Evokers.

Your theory about them being exiled is right bc of Minecraft dungeons and the “evil” arch illiger being kicked out Edit: plus when you use soul speed on soul sand it has the same soul icon behind you as the Minecraft dungeons soul icon

So, I cant give pictures, but I found a nether portal that had two pieces of gold above it. There was netherrack surrounding it and a little bit of magma. There was also stone bricks around the obsidian. I replaced the obsidian and stone bricks and I went through. I spawned on top of a nether fortress but it seemed to be filled with nether bricks. It also wasnt one of the new, 1.16 ones. I found out it the overworld that there was a chest near the portal. There was 3 golden leggings, one with fire resistance 1, one with projectile protection 3, and one with unbreaking 3. None of them were damaged. There was also a golden shovel with unbreaking 1. Also un-damaged. There was 21 gold nuggets and 4 obsidian. I have a theory though, here it is: It is the piglins trying to escape the nether. They use gold (which also explains the gold at the top of the portal), because they live in nether fortresses, they have obsidian and gold in their chests, and they aren’t immune to fire so they would need the fire protection. They wouldn’t know what the world through the portal is like so they would need to bring protection. Could you please do a theory on this?

Hey I have a theory on what the striders in the new 1.16 update could have been just like the pigins originated from pigs where like the striders originated from chickens the little hairs on the sides their heads to me they look like feathers and maybe they were brought through as a food source just like the pigs were . just something to think about

In my opinion, a thing that need to be digged is the magic power of ligthning in mincraft. They can transphorme mobs like pig, villager and creeper into zombified piglins, witch and charged creeper. They can also summon skeletons knights on skeletons horses. Also, now that bastion are in the nether and the new mecanics of piglins and hoglins being zombified when they go in the overworld exist, I think that the theory of the pigmen schould be upgraded. The new structure of ancient nether portal can be important too.

And I have an other question : who made the igloo ? Is it the illager since the person who build it was clearly making experiment on zombie villager and almost find a way to retransforme zombie villager into normal villager ?

Maybe long ago the ancient builder and the piglins lived in peace, they were trading gold for stuff, building bastion for their friend and one day they take with them piglins in the overworld but the piglins, inadapted to the air, were zombified. That event started a war between the two species and now piglins attak humans and live in ruins because they can't build so they can't repair the construct made by the ancient builder.

Someone made a datapack where throwing a totem of undying onto soul sand would drain the essence out of the totem and unleash lots of vexes. Sounds like it was inspired by this

Why wouldn’t evokers try to turn us into a mindless husk? Even if it wouldn’t work on us, the first thing an evoker would do is: try to use us as an ally. I saw a theory on a different video of yours, that the evokers could have made Steve- so that might be why they don’t try to control us: because we escaped when they created Steve and they know that we cannot be contained.

13:19 "The lost Souls of Minecraft are hunting for you..." Me: haha soul harvest go brrrrrrrrrr I'm happy that my favorite mechanic of Minecraft Dungeons is actually important to this lore. But a few points I must add: - What about the Lightning Rods, forged by the Geomancers? - If Lapis is used to reanimate/hypnotize Villagers into Vindicators, then what of the powers of Redstone used in fueling the Redstone Golems and Redstone items, like the Repeater, Dust, etc? Finally, a challenge for Game Theory: Make a conversion equation/system which translates 100 Damage in Minecraft Dungeons into # units of force (like newtons). Good luck, you'll need it...

*MATPAT PLEASE SEE THIS* I was playing Minecraft with my brother and we kept finding all these broken random nether portals so we fixed them and went through them and found all sorts of things. We found what's called a Basalt Delta which is kinda like a Nether Fortress (we also found those too) and one thing we noticed is around the broken portals we found chest filled with materials the lost human civilization could've taken with them and things to make a nether portal. We also found a LEGIT WATER MONUMENT but that doesn't matter. When we took the first portal it lead straight to another one. I saw how it connects to your theories so I thought this would help you out. GOOD LUCK 👍

The mighty Trainthurnax
I don't quite think it was meant that the lapis was forcefully put into their heads, more so it was used in their rituals and incantations and what-not. Thus giving them their magical capabilities, like how we can use lapis for enchanting. Also, you use EXP you get from killing mobs and animals to enchant, that could be implied as their souls or life force being used in magic that makes you stronger and more powerful. That, and as stated in a previous video, lapis in real life was seen as having a spiritual or divine connection by various cultures and religions. This being the reason you can use lapis as a means to enchant in the game. Its the next best thing from actually having to go and get that EXP from other living things, it has that same powerful spiritual connection.
