    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The power of Rados is divided into eight sigils: Ogama for order, Infinis for eternity, Yin for youth, Yan for wisdom, Nega for force, Dako for chaos, Sum for peace, and Altas for balance.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Erik: Kara... (Crosses his arms)
        Kara: Uh oh, insert big brother speech. Lemme guess: not using my power boots on the table, you can't walk without them, you should be extra careful, blah blah blah blah blah, right?
        Erik: That about covers it, yeah.

      • Seth: Isn't there anything else to eat around here? (Kragus shows him a toast) Ah, toast it is. (To Kara) Hit me, Kara: extra crispy.
        Kara: Coming right up. (Uses her boots and accidently burns the toast and Kragus)
        Seth: Maybe not that crispy.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (6)

      • Character: Seth
        Seth's name is probably a reference to Set, the Egyptian god of the desert (The name Set can also be spelled with an H.)

      • Sigil: Altas
        The sigil of Altas seems to make a reference to Atlas, a character who has to hold up the Sky on his shoulders in Greek mythology. If we compare this myth to the meaning of the Altas sigil (which is to feel the balance of the eight sigils), we can see that hold is a possible synonym of balance, creating a link between the symbol and this character.

      • Sigil: Yin and Yan
        The Yin and Yan Sigils are an obvious reference to the Taijitu (Yin and Yang symbol) associated with Taoism (Chinese philosophical and religious traditions and concepts). They are also the only sigils that look like letters: Yin has the shape of a Y with a horizontal stroke crossing its middle. Yan has the shape of a Z with a vertical line crossing it from top to bottom.

      • Sigil: Dako
        The sigil of Dako resembles the uppercase version of the Greek letter Phi (often used in physics and philosophy). But instead of being completely round, the sigil has a more ovoid shape and the line crossing it becomes fatter at the bottom.

      • Sigil: Ogama
        The Ogama sigil is a reference to the Omega symbol, an old Greek letter (also called Ohm) when used as a unit of measurement to represent electrical resistance. The only difference is the short stroke crossing the top of the sigil.

      • Sigil: Infinis
        The sigil of Infinis is obviously referring to the infinity symbol used in many scientific studies, like mathematics. But, instead of being a perfect horizontal eight, the line breaks before it rejoins the starting point, leaving the middle line untouched. The sigil also has a short stroke coming out of both of its sides.
