In relation to this chapter, I want to comment on the old Seer Thru'tei'ga'ma. Of course, he stands in the role of Teiresias, the very famous Seer of ancient Greece. Some of you may remember that Teiresias was blinded because he saw Athena as she was bathing. In Thru'tei'ga'ma's case, he saw the Highest-Mother-Who-Has-No-Name as she was grooming her great belly. Pay attention to his ramblings; they are some of the most important and comprehensive prophecies that will be spoken in the stories. At any given point, if you return to those paragraphs and compare events to what Thru'tei'ga'ma said, you'll say, "Oh, now I see what he was talking about!"
A'zhu'lo fills the role of Iphicles, the twin of Hercules, although A'zhu'lo's story is almost entirely imaginary on my part. A'zhu'lo is basically the lesser sibling who worships his big brother but can never compete with him, although he would very much like to. Wei'tu has no equivalent in the myths, but Twa'sei, whose name means "Wood-Cutter," is clearly Hylas, which Rrobert Graves says means "Of the Woods." And if you don't know who Hylas was in relation to Hercules, you'll just have to look it up!
