A lot of meta has been written about the meaning of Reiner’s name. It’s derived from Raganhar, which means “counselor/advisor” + “warrior.” Reiner’s name meaning is often condensed down to simply “deciding warrior.” When translating this information into Japanese, however, artist Kyosuke chose to write 決め手の勇士 kimete no yuushi which means “THE deciding warrior” in the sense of, like, the trump card. The ace up the sleeve. The person who clinches the victory.
I think that is a perfect translation on a lot of levels.
Some Fire Emblem, as requested by tasobi! I’ve only ever played the demo for FE:A, but it’s definitely a game on my to-do list. So here’s some Gaius! Sorry he kinda looks like he’s a part of some k-pop group haha
Self-taught Alaskan sculptor Lee Cross, known professionally as Wood Splitter Lee, creates incredible one of a kind fantasy creatures that are so remarkably lifelike they verge on creepy, which is just one of the things that makes them so awesome. All of Lee’s creatures are completely made by hand without the use of and patterns, molds or casts. Their bodies contain articulated skeletons wrapped with stuffing, making them very soft to handle and fully posable. They’re decorated with carefully hand-applied synthetic fur and paint. As you can see from these photos, some of Lee’s creatures are more fantastic in nature than others, but they’re all amazing to behold.
