Does anyone know how to spell the name of Neytiri's ikran?   It sounds like Zezay.

Lol I thought it was more green brown and gold than anything else. I was kind of sad Jake never named his ikran. But for that matter he never named the toruk either. Tongue

An interesting question is what happened to Jake's ikran. We don't see it after he jumps on the greatlyenupteryx.

I think it may have went back to the mountains. Since the leonopteryx wasn't needed after the war, he let it go. This leads me to believe he still has his ikran.

Since Ikran bond for life, I'd assume Jake could still call on his in the future.  The leonopteryx was just for show, both to raise the hopes of the Na'vi with the coming of the fifth (Sixth?) toruk makto, and as a show of force (Such as it were against gunships) in the battle.

a tangent, but

Clearly the Ikran and Toruk are pretty much a closely related species, I wonder if in zeheylu the bond is also for life.  From what I gather that 'bond' doesn't mean anything but the fact that only one person can ride them. thus, you're not like married monogamous to it, so you could ride other species just fine.

Does zeheylu mean Direhorse? If so, they don't have a life-long bond.

I think I misspelt it, but Zeheylu or whatever is the bond made between a Na'vi and an another animal itself. (using the ponytail thing)  Direhorse is 'pa'li' in Na'vi.

Oh...I was kinda off there. (I remember that word now, though)

To answer your question, I think it would still be for life with the Toruk. Though it probably won't matter, seeing as no other Na'vi will likely try to join with it.

thank you Seze!

I figure the Toruk would also stick around too - consider how Neytiri's grandfather's grandfather was a Toruk Maktal, and the skull of the toruk was in their hometree.

I was checking the spelling for rider, and I got Makto which is the verb ride.  Do we need a suffix on this? or is it just Toruk Makto (Rider of last shadow).

well following warrior (tsamsiyu) and hunter (Taronyu) one can infer that the suffix -yu is 'one who does the verb' ... or roughly the english 'er'

I'd say that if Makto is to ride, rider would be Maktoyu.

Toruk Makto is a title, so perhaps the literal translation is 'To Ride the Last Shadow'

Isn't it spelled 'Tsaheylu'?
I think I read it somewhere on the forum.

I could be wrong, though.

edit: oh Seze pointed that out already Smiley
AQnd appearantly I was wrong in the spelling, too Cheesy
