The symbols were taught by will then infused by praying to the fool.
what exactly is the symbol?
Didnt really explain just gave a vague description:
"The only trouble is that the corresponding symbols are three-dimensional, mysterious, complex and dangerous, and can not be directly engraved on various metal sheets... According to Will Onsetin, it is necessary to use meditation to drive spirituality and sketch it directly on the Worm of the Spirit...
but since the power is similar to rewind will used against amon it may the one corresponding to the snake of mercury. How it looks is anyone guess tho.
I thought the symbol was from the worn of spirit guess I was wrong.
The carving patterns and symbols are based off the seq 3 archaic scholar item that Will received previously from Cattleya. Will was willing to help Klein only on the condition that Klein resupplies him with 2 more of such items, and Will was confident that Klein could make them by leveraging the power of the fog and using his own spirit worms as catalyst material. The only difficult part is that Klein had to use his spirit power to carve the symbols and Will taught him the method of how to carve.
Oh right they just copied the patterns from that charm, i was thinking that knowledge came from will itself.
Btw our author keeps upping the stakes, now that catleya and sharon are demigods seems like the cast is preparing for a full all-out war.
Frye is sequence 7 now, so fast considering he is not the Main Character or the Supporting Character.
I wonder if Leonard will refer Frye to Klein for recruitment.
I think it will more likely be Mr Azik that will take up the Death seat =P
Also, did anyone else find it super cute that after getting traumatized by Amon's visit, Arrodes wants to be constantly praised by Klein and that he is seriously considering about showing off some of his powers to get re-classified as a grade 1 sealed artifact. Now he no longer wants to leave the Church of Steam and Machinery XD
Arrodes realizing that the seals for him/her are not enough, by the way, is Arrodes a unique Characteristic of the Seer Path?
I think it is more likely that Arrodes is formed from the characteristics of seer pathway's seq 1 servant of mysteries. He should be on the same level as the sealed artifact 0-08, Pen of Alesouhod. And if so, Arrodes will probably become the ingredients of the seq 1 potion for Klein in the future.
Poor arrodes he truly is best servant i wonder how it would react if klein took it to the gray fog.
His ability seems too narrow to be the uniqueness, afaik it should be closer to a sequence 0 ability, like adam creating dreamscapes in reality, or the dice control of fate, but he is definitively a high level artifact, and the fact its so smart and lively is even more intriguing
Author skipped Cattleya and Sharron's ceremony to become a half-god... what a pity. I wanted to see their mythological beast form. As far as I remember, we only know the mythological beast form of the following pathways:
Fool - Worms
Thief - Bugs
Death - Feathered Serpent
Wheel of Fortune - Silver Snake
Dreamer - Dragon
Warrior - Giant
I didn't read mtl so I want to know what does Will know about gray fog and does he know klein is lower sequence
It's never made specific, throughout the novel, it's implied that at least for a lot of angels (like Amon, Will, Pales etc), they seem to know something or at least a little bit about the gray fog and the existence behind it. When Will first met Klein, he noticed the fog surrounding Klein and definitely saw something. We just don't know exactly what XD.
And yes, at that time Klein was still a low sequence and Will knew about it.
So what did he see in gray fog does author describe it
In the chapter where klein captured the winner as his puppet he tried to see himself through his eyes and found that they see him as his mythological form made by many worms shrouded by fog and a ethereal door with many mysterious symbols and stars, then almost lost control and fainted for a while.
Is death a feathered serpent or a phoenix? It's unclear because the original ancient god was described as phoenix ancestor, but then the artificial death god was in the form of a winged snake. I agree on the other ones though.
Dunno, if it was a phoenix before the second blasphemy slate, but it's a feathered serpent now. The same happened to the Fool pathway: Flegrea was a wolf, but the mythological beast form of the Fool pathway now is a worm, not a wolf.
Flegrea had two Sequences compared to Klein though so I don't think it is right to compare the two
I'm not comparing him with Klein, though. I'm just pointing out that whatever happened before or after the second blasphemy slate appeared messed up with the pathways and their respective mythological beast form. So, although Flegrea was god the Sleepless and Fool pathway in the past, nowadays the mythological beast form of the Fool pathway is a worm, not a wolf. Most likely, the mythological beast form of the Sleepless pathway is a wolf.
