Just as the title implies, what does "Azarath Metrion Zinthos" mean?

Didn't we already discuss this on the old TRS?

Anyways, Azarath=Raven's home
Metrion=Raven's real name
Zinthos=Raven's pet raven's name

Note: I think that "Zinthos" is actually spelled "Xinthos"

That's one theory anyway...

One thing's for certain, Azarath is name of the Dimension where she was born/raised.

and Shadow has it spelled right (at least based on the TTG comic).

Azarath - Raven's home planet/dimension



Metrion - *Shakes head* Metrion is not Raven's real name. Some clever fanfic author decided that's what it stood for and it's been spread as gospel. Lady T has never heard anything of the sort, so I'm assuming that's not true.


Zinthos - I'm not sure if the pet raven thing is correct....check with Lady T, I'm inclined to think it's wrong.


This topic is debatable.....so go ahead. :D

The problem is that Lady T isn't here right now.

Actually I just rarely come into this forum....

Azarath is Raven's home - sort of a religious Shangri-La founded by the first Azar basically to ward off the attack of Trigon

Metrion and Zinthos mean absolutely nothing.

Raven's powers are completely different between the comic and the cartoon. I don't know what they're going to be like as of the end of this arc in the current series, but previously she mostly sent her "soul self" to encompass the baddie, or she teleported people out of the way, or she healed the injured. She wasn't tossing spells, making shields, fighting, etc.

I don't quite remember it exactly as that - but it does go into all that self control stuff.

Maybe she can't kill a human being in a rage or something like that.....
