The Silver Swan

 February, 23 2006

The place for discussion about Hethlin's new adventures.

Isabeau, I think I've noticed that the tiger keeps emerging as an emblem for Andrahar -- is that just coincidence or is there significance?

From Kinstrife:

"You learn your weapons well, my tiger,” Isfhandijar’s deep voice rumbled in approval. “Now if only your book learning were so advanced…”

... in that same scene Andrahar's mother was embroidering little tigers on his shirt

And then from Silver Swan:

the Prince murmured something softly in Haradric.

“What was that?” I asked him equally softly.

“Poetry,” came his quiet response. His eyes never left the battle. “The translation would be something along the line of:

‘All others give way
When the tiger comes down to drink.’”

Faramir shot his uncle an appreciative look. “Boromir actually liked that one, did you know?” he said.

“I know who taught it to him,” Imrahil murmured

It was stated more than once in Kinstrife that Andra was not bookish, so if he taught Boromir a poem am I right in thinking it must have held some significance for him?
