lwa stars and names
Some of this is stuff I already wrote about but bear with me:
So, Ursula’s name comes from “ursa” which is Latin for “bear” (more specifically, “Ursula” refers to a female bear). This relates her back to a couple major constellations in both the series and the Northern hemisphere (above the equator), those being Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. Minor is arguably more important to the series due to the pole star, Polaris or the North Star, which we saw in the Fountain of Polaris.
Now, we have a new (villain?) character, Croix.
Her name is french for “cross”, which probably relates to a major constellation in the Southern hemisphere (below the equator), Crux (Latin for “cross”) or the Southern Cross.
While Polaris is the leading star towards the North pole, Crux points towards the South pole.
Anyway, I guess this makes Croix and Ursula (literally) polar opposites.
