I don't know about Arthra, but IIRC in Hinduism Asura refers to a group of deities.

Don't know about the Wolfram though, but unless there's a god or something with that name then there goes the deity-based theme naming theory.

Wolfram, according to wikipedia, can refer to a great deal of things, including tungsten, a german writer, a WWII Luftwaffe general, and a sailor. Among other things.

I'm a world mythology nerd, and I'm pretty certain Wolfram isn't the name of any god I've ever heard of. Unless you count the worst piece of tripe Joss Whedon ever sullied his name with as source material. You shouldn't.

There was a knight in one of Wagner's operas by that name, though. And I think there was some Catholic saint that old-timey sailors look to by that name. It's also the name of one of my great grandparents. <shrug>

Edit: Who am I kidding? This is Hayate's ship. Of course it's a Wagner reference.

Just for extra thought, remember that Hestia and Athra are L-class investigative spaceships while the Wolfam is an LS-class warship

What's the difference between the XV-class and LS-class, anyway? They look the same.

... huh?

Another question: What was the official date of RF6's disbandment? All I know is that it was in 0076.

At least, the date formatting in StrikerS captions is identical to that currently used in Japan. Granted, it merely means "Nth day, Mth Month, 00XX" but still.

XV class > L class > LS class

This is a production sketch for Claudia and the silhouette is Asura.Claudia is about twice the size of Asura.



There is no figure of LS class.But according to Force volume 1,Wolfram is smaller than standard dimensional vessel.

Was Asclepius originally Megane's device?

If it was, it would explain a few things, such as where all Lutecia's summons came from (if they were tied to the device, or if Lutecia inherited her mother's magic). Megane was seen in a flashback Vivid manga scene, wearing a device that looked a lot like Asclepious.

The Japanese wiki says following:

Quote:
補助系を得意としていたルーテシアの母・メガーヌも8年前に使用しており、スカリエッティが製作したデバイ スというわけではないが、ルーテシアの手に渡る前に召喚補助向けの調整がクアットロによって施 されている。
As far as I can comprehend the runes, it means:

- Eight years ago, Megane used Asclepius as a regular auxiliary control/Boost Device.
- Scaglietti didn't build it but he and Quattro tweaked it for Summoning Magic.
- It was then given to Lutecia.

So Megene was never a summoner but Lutecia learned how to summon on her own after the davice was modified.

What happens when two people try to use SLB or a similar drain-magic-from-environment spell together?
