Yeah but "Dragon" seems to be thrown left and right in index. If Aiwass is someone who can't be controlled by God then isn't Touma the same?

If that's all it takes to be called a dragon, then all humans are dragons since we don't listen to God like the Angels do.

Aiwass deal it's not about disobeying God, but rather Aiwass escapes God's plan / the boundary of His laws.

There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Kamijou nor anyone else but Aiwass to having achieved something like that, regardless of Dragon or not.

I have a question... Which is the correct word for Index's wings?

- Red?
- Crimson?
- Blood Red?
- Scarlet?

I would like to get an unique word for the color of her wings on baka-tsuki.

It's pretty much flavor text; so really it's a toss up between 'crimson' and 'scarlet' to see which sounds cooler.

Actually, go with scarlet, according to wiki, there's some religious thingy with the word scarlet.

If it matters to anyone, while both are deep reds, scarlet is slightly brighter and leans toward orange, while crimson is a bit darker, slightly saturated and leans toward purple.

Taking out the technicality, you could say scarlet is vivid and warm while crimson is dark and cold.

Likewise, in literature you'll usually relate crimson with blood and murder while scarlet with passion.

Crimson makes sense since Index is totally cold and emotionless while uses it.

Actually Scarlet is also use for blood... Of the living.

Why not use Vermilion? It's less generic sounding than Scarlet or Crimson.

But yeah, I think you should find out what the Japanese text say first to see if it's more orangy or deep dark.

Actually, I didn't say it's not used for blood but rather that it's more usual the use of Crimson for it than Scarlet.

Here are some examples for Scarlet

And here some for Crimson

Well, based on these examples you could also say that not like everyone cares about the subtle differences of colors and some authors use Crimson and Scarlet interchangeably. Then again, some could be mistranslations... But what I said still stands true.

Just a quick question for the light novels.

Do the Japanese read and right like English people (like this post)

Or do they read & write in any other styles (for light novels).

Vertical text read from top to bottom, pages start from the right instead of the left.

Are you asking about Index wings? I checked it out and it only says 赤い翼 , So I really don't see the point of trying to fancing it up, specially with words that suggest other meanings.

...

If that's all it says about the wings then you're right, it's just red wings, we shouldn't use a more descriptive color if we don't know more about how Kazuma pictured those wings.
