- Lyn’s bow is named Mulagir. It’s based off of the sword Murgleys, used by the villain Ganelon from the epic “The Song of Roland” (La chanson de Roland)

- Lucina spear, Geirskögul, is named after the norse valkyrie of the same name. Geirskögul and her sister Skögul (who may or may not be the same person) were famous Valkyries personally chosen by Odin to find the greatest fighters amongst the Norse kings in the poem “Hákonarmál”. Geir meaning Spear and Skögul meaning Shaker or High Towering

-Durandal, or course, being the sword of Roland. One of Charlemagne’s 12 Paladins and the most famous of the bunch (of which Astolfo is one of those Paladins). It’s said that Durandal was once owned by Hector of Troy and given to Roland by one of God’s angels. And it’s also said that the sword still exists, hidden inside the cliff wall in the French town of Rocamadour.

- Urvan coming from the Zoroastrian concept of the Soul. I can’t find much more beyond that.


i like the idea of the knight-lava monster swap au. i also like the idea the humanoid lava monsters used to be humans (maybe even knights

anyways for the sake of this whole concept -

lavaria - javaria linn (javelin / black raven)

general magmar - magnus murgleis (murgleys sword / gold wolf)

whiparella - her name stays the same (snake whip / wine red snake)

beast master - beck de faucon (poleaxe / brown bear)

anonymous asked:

Mythological weapons for allies, nordics and axis please!! :D ((I need help with a fanfic so I want ideas of what weapons would they have like ie England and Excalibur))

((I hope you know that when it comes to standard weapons I’m pretty good, but I know damn near nothing about mythical weaponry, so this took a couple hours of research and digging through some of my old knowledge to bring together. It sounds like an interesting fic though! Also, I know the Nordics sources are not quite reliable, but I know damn near nothing about Norse mythology so please feel free to correct me or add additional information because I admit to Wikipedia use for some of it and I feel terrible for it.))
