I’m writing a meta/theory about yellow glowing eyes in Voltron and what they mean, and I just realised that we see the Lions’ eyes glow yellow a lot, especially when they’re bonding with their Paladins. However, the only Paladin we’ve seen whose eyes have glowed yellow in response to a bond with the Lion… is Shiro.
Assuming the bond between Paladin and Lion is mediated by quintessence, i.e. “it is a mystical bond that cannot be forced” and “the quintessence of the pilot is mirrored in his Lion”… Shiro must have some kind of special affinity with quintessence for his eyes to glow yellow when he bonds with the Lion. There must be something special about him that causes his eyes to glow yellow like that, because we’ve never seen the other Paladins do it.
Bonus screencaps real quick… Hunk bonding closely with Yellow in the Ark of Taujeer:
His eyes are normal, but the Lion’s eyes are yellow:
Pidge bonding closely with Green in Greening the Cube, when she healed the Lion:
Her eyes are normal; the Lion’s eyes are yellow.
And finally, Shiro bonding closely with the Black Lion in the second frikkin episode of the entire show:
For that matter… we’ve still yet to see any other Paladin successfully see through their Lion’s eyes. Shiro’s ability to bond with Black so quickly and so closely, to the extent that his eyes glow yellow just like hers, seems to be a special ability. An ability that likely links to quintessence, given everything we’ve seen about how the Lions work and how they bond with their Paladins.
So yeah I’m not saying Shiro’s ability to do magic/manipulate quintessence is canon but… we’ve literally never seen any other Paladin do this. So uh… IT’S CANON.
For the story Constant as the Moon, my @voltronbang project with the amazing Aurum and Sylvyr! It’s a fantastic canon-divergent fic that explores what could have happened if Shiro were to climb the ranks in Galran society instead of being rescued by Ulaz. Please check it out, especially if you love dear sweet Shiro! ☆
This has been the most wonderful project to work on, as well as being my first Big Bang, first colored comic, and first time drawing most of these characters, and I’d love to do another one soon! And maybe doodle a few of Aurum’s other Voltron stories… Please check out the writers’ blogs as well!
