Gods and Spirits:

Queen: Dusai (said du-sa-ee)

There are many more gods and spirits to come, I promise you!

Triangles and Threes:
The triangle is a very important motif as it has three sides and three points. "Three" is a very sacred number to the Naori and in fact the word "Naori" comes from the word "nao" which originally means "3". Three is seen as balanced, and most "gods" come in groups or families of three, such as the Jum, Ke and Tu trio (season gods), and Tuhk, Luihn, and Mkeshu (the death trio) to give a few examples. If you see a triangle on anything, chances are it is magic, sacred or special in some other way. (So don't touch it unless told to. LOL )

The word "Nao":
"Nao" originally means "three", but can also mean "human". This is why the island is named "Naor", to honor such a sacred word and symbol. The "r" was added to honor "Roht", King of gods. Later the word "nao" was used in the creation of many many words, far too many to list. Some are "Naori" meaning "the people of Naor", "Naoru" meaning "the language of the people" (uank means to speak, thus the "u" at the end), and of course "nao" or "naomon", both meaning "human".

While circles typically represent completion and perfection in most cultures, to the Naori, the circle represents the ideas of repetition and infinity. Most gods and spirits are to some degree immortal. Only Roht and Dusai are truly immortal, while all others have some sort of weakness that when exploited makes them mortal. Circles are commonly present to refer to the grandiose of gods, implying the grand immortality, and are often seen with triangles when applied to immortality as triangles refer to sacredness, the gods, or magic.

Yellow is a color of hope and praise. It is thought that since the sun is yellow, most light is yellow, and so light is hopeful and something to aspire to when saddened. This is why the word for yellow in Naoru, "kuh", is based off of the name of the Sun God "Kuht" (said ku-ut).

Since red is a hard color to get a large amount of, it is used only by Zaihkt (Shamans), Gods, Village elders, and Lumtei (Guardians/assistants to zaihkt) when needed. It is associated with the gods, protection of malicious spirits, and used to honor good spirits.

Green is a color typically of good fortune. One must be careful not to have too much of this color, be greedy and it can cost you more bad luck than good luck. It is added to scroll in the hope of keeping them safe from been destroyed, intentionally or accidentally.
