kiwi_socks: (Slayers // LoN // Claire Bible)
[personal profile] kiwi_socks
Oh hay look, a Slayers tl;dr essay in the beginnings (AKA research, the best part <3), maybe my major essay for World Religions O: This is more of me noting names/terms I should look into deeper at a later time.


Point of research/essay: To become more familiar with the nature of LoN beyond that which the Claire Bible said, by comparing her to deities of Earth and finding their counterparts (Because we seem to only know of her side form which the Mazoku came from)

(Claire Bible)
"Theirs is an existence too large to comprehend."
"The Mother of all darkness. The true lord of the [Mazoku]."
"One who logns to regain their original form."
"A void within everything. The source of all chaos. One who has dominion over all terrible dreams"

(LoN)
"You who stand before me, desiring destruction...My power shall destroy YOU!"
"I am the mother of all darkness. I am who has dreamed for years uncounted of regaining my form."
"I am the sea of chaos. The source of all chaos."
"My mind is my power, my power is my mind. When uncorrupted by other elements, my mind is my pure power."
"Only my mind exists in this place. You, who so desperately seeks destruction...as you wish, you shall be destroyed!"
"I appeared in this world because the one called Lina willed me to."

(Xellos)
"That person is the source of all chaos. The Golden Lord."
"The polar opposite of nothingness is existence. In other words, when a pure with is made by existence...to call forth oblivion, it must itself return to oblivion."
"It seems that the mother of all things...has a rather capricious nature."

(Chaos Spells)
Giga Slave: "Darkness beyond blackest pitch, deeper than the deepest night!
King of Darkness, shining like gold upon the Sea of Chaos, I call upon thee!
Swear myself to thee!
Let the fools who stand before me be destroyed... by the power you and I possess!"
Ragna Blade: "Lord of the Dreams that terrify,
King of Cold and Darkness.
Free yourself from the Heaven's bonds.
Become one with my power, one with my body
And let us walk upon the path of Destruction together.
Power that can smash even the souls of the Gods!"

Lord of Nightmares ("The Mother of All"; "Lord of Dreams that Terrify"; "She who shines like gold upon the sea of darkness"; "Golden Lord"; "L-sama")

-Claire Bible describes the Sea of Chaos not as a place, but a being, meaning the worlds are extensions of it
-SoC is probably LoN

-Lucifer in Latin means "Light-bringer", which would account for her evil nature and TM gold glow in the darkness, but not the good side

-Can be made up of of three parts, as represented in Hindu Trimurti, that ultimately make up the concept of 'chaos'
---Destruction (The ultimate goal of the Mazoku)-->Shiva
-----Shaivism he is supreme
---Creation (The ultimate goal of humans, AKA 'the middle man')-->Brahma
-----Some sects think of him as the creation of Brahman, which is the God within all humans
-----Cursed to never be worshiped
---Preservation (The ultimate goal of the Shinzoku)-->Vishnu
-----In the Hindu triad, he is the Lord, where in Slayers the Gods and Dark Lords are equal
-----Has five avatars, which could be associated with the four Shinzoku + one missing/dead/whatever, need to look up more about them

-Shiva is also seen as "great god", "great lord, and "Supreme Lord" (Think of this seperately?)
---Depicted as "the standard of invincibility, might, and terror", as well as a figure of honor, delight, and brilliance
-----Well, that sounds close to LoN
---Destructive form's etymology gives "The Wild (chaotic?) One" or "The Fierce God"
---Benign is "Beneficent" or "Conferring Happiness"
---Chaos, creation leading to destruction leading to creation...etc

-Can also be associated with Tiamat according to wiki, but only in what they represent
---All the myth is WTF
---"...is the sea, personified as a goddess, and a monstrous embodiment of primordial chaos", who *helped give birth to the universe with her fresh-water counterpart, not on her own. Still very slight resemblence

-Sea of Chaos=Cosmic Ocean in Hindu?
