Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

In the two years after Sin's defeat, Trema, a former denizen of Yevon, wished to learn more about Spira's history, hidden all over the world in the form of spheres. He created sphere hunting, which soon became a popular craze among young people, and began searching Spira for lost spheres. Trema founded New Yevon to bring stability back to Bevelle and those people who had fallen out of touch. Unbeknown to everyone, however, Trema was an unsent who had falsified his title as an "Unaffiliated Yevon Priest" to infiltrate the heart of Yevon.[1]

Trema's true objective for having people collect spheres was not to "find the truths of Spira", but to erase the past. He took over the Monster Arena from Lord Mi'ihen (who had founded it 800 years ago) to carry on his aspirations of using the facility to train the Crusaders. Trema observed that whenever Sin was defeated, the Crusaders, who now had nowhere to use their training, sought conflicts, which caused him great despair. He surmised that what they needed was not physical, but spiritual training and labeled himself a Yevonite, began urging people to "pursue the truth" (through sphere hunting) and founded New Yevon.[1] As his philosophy was that "people must rid themselves of the past to become stronger", Trema took the spheres New Yevon had gathered and destroyed them in the depths of Bevelle in a place called Via Infinito, his rationale being that people must discard the past to face the future.

Trema Zanarkand

An illusion of Zanarkand created by Trema.

Trema never resurfaced, and New Yevon elected a chairman who continued the good work Trema had begun, unaware their founder was still in the Via Infinito where he, as a powerful unsent, was able to control even the mightiest of fiends.

The Gullwings venture into the Via Infinito and upon reaching the final cloister and defeating Paragon, Trema appears and dispatches the fiend before challenging the party. Paine theorized that even though Trema entered the Via Infinito a year before their arrival, he may have been dead and unsent long before his descent into the cloisters.

Spoilers end here.
