Random information on the term “GLUT”:
Glöð (“glad” or “glowing embers”; sometimes anglicized as Glod or Glut ) is a legendary queen who figures in the Norse Þorsteins saga Víkingssonar.
She is a daughter of Grímr of Grímsgarðr in Jötunheimr and his wife Alvör, the sister of King Álf the Old of Álfheimr. She is also the wife of Logi, also referred to as Hálogi, with whom she had two daughters, Eysa or Eisa (“glowing embers”) and Eimyrja (“embers”).
In Norse mythology, Logi is a fire giant, god and personification of fire, mentioned in the Prose Edda. By extension, Glöð, as Logi’s consort, is sometimes identified as a goddess, as are her daughters. In addition to this, the placement of her father, Grímr, in Jötunheimr, identifies him as a jötunn, that is, a supernatural being. So does the placement of her mother, Alvör, in Alfheimr, the realm of the Light Elves. This suggests that Glöð is perhaps more properly regarded as a mythological figure rather than as a historical one. Glöð is also often wrongly identified as the wife of the god Loki rather than Logi.
Random information on the term “AVALANCHE”:
Terra Branford, known as Tina Branford (ティナ・ブランフォード?, Tina Buranfōdo) in Japanese media, is a character in the Final Fantasy series of role-playing video games published by Square Enix. Designed by Yoshitaka Amano and Tetsuya Nomura for the main series installment Final Fantasy VI, she also appeared in the spin-off fighting games Dissidia Final Fantasy and Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, and made small appearances in several other games in and outside the Final Fantasy series.
In Final Fantasy VI, Terra serves as the main protagonist. She is the daughter of a human and a magic creature known as an “Esper.” Mentally enslaved by the antagonistic Gestahlian Empire, which exploits her magic powers for militaristic purposes, she is rescued by rebels at the beginning of the game. The character was very well received by journalists and fans alike.
Terra is the first introduced character, a mentally-enslaved Imperial super-soldier gifted with devastating magic. She is tasked to the Magitek-armored assault on Narshe, slaughtering most of the town’s militia in pursuit of a recently unearthed frozen Esper. Upon encountering the creature, her Imperial contingent is annihilated together with Terra’s armor. She wakes in Arvis’ home, freed of her slave crown and suffering amnesia. Pursued into the depths of Narshe’s mines by local forces, she is eventually rescued by Locke (a member of the Returners) and a horde of moogles. After experiencing events in the Figaro kingdom and after another Imperial assault on Narshe to claim the Esper, she eventually learns that she is the daughter of an Esper father and human mother, explaining her natural magical abilities. Brain-washed, extensively trained and manipulated, she had been instrumental in the Empire’s subjugation of the other city-states on the southern continent, her powers even decimating fifty Imperial troops in moments. Instrumental in the Returner’s strategy to ally with the Espers beyond the sealed gate, Terra succeeds in opening the barrier between worlds and unintentionally unleashes the Espers’ devastating obliteration of the Empire.
Random information on the term “DELUGE”:
A flood myth or deluge myth is a narrative in which a great flood, usually sent by a deity or deities, destroys civilization, often in an act of divine retribution. Parallels are often drawn between the flood waters of these myths and the primeval waters found in certain creation myths, as the flood waters are described as a measure for the cleansing of humanity, in preparation for rebirth. Most flood myths also contain a culture hero, who “represents the human craving for life”.
The flood myth motif is found among many cultures as seen in the Mesopotamian flood stories, Deucalion in Greek mythology, the Genesis flood narrative, Manu in Hinduism, Bergelmir in Norse Mythology, in the lore of the K’iche’ and Maya peoples in Mesoamerica, the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa tribe of Native Americans in North America, the Muisca, and Cañari Confederation, in South America, and the Aboriginal tribes in southern Australia.
The Mesopotamian flood stories concern the epics of Ziusudra, Gilgamesh, and Atrahasis. In the Sumerian King List, it relies on the flood motif to divide its history into preflood (antediluvian) and postflood periods. The preflood kings had enormous lifespans, whereas postflood lifespans were much reduced. The Sumerian flood myth found in the Deluge tablet was the epic of Ziusudra, who heard the Divine Counsel plan to destroy humanity, in response to which he constructed a vessel that delivered him from great waters. In the Atrahasis version, the flood is a river flood.
