Question about an Edit[edit]

What exactly was the reasoning for saying he isn't the One Who Draws the Bow of Hours due to the fact that the meaning doesn't appear? Like, he is called that, iirc. Can you give a better explanation as I don't fully get what you mean from the edit summary. (Firesong)

Hi Firesong, apologies for the delayed response. Cord's quote from the book is as follows:
"I am Hualinam'lunanaki'akilu, the daughter of Numuhukumakiaki'aialunamor, the Fal'ala'liki'nor, he who drew the Bow of Hours at the dawn of the new millennium, heralding the years of change!"
While this may imply that the title of Fal'ala'liki'nor is related to the Bow of Hours, it's not presented as a direct translation. Even if the action of drawing the Bow makes one the Fal'ala'liki'nor, the title itself could translate as something like "chosen one" or "harbinger of change", to give a few examples. That is why I don't think that a translated title like the one you added can be confirmed (yet). -Big Smooth (talk) 16:22, 25 August 2023 (UTC)
