Ever wondered about the etemology of the Iifa tree? Or, if you were like me and misread it as 'Lifa' for ages, possibly not.

Turns out it may be based on the semi mythical city Ife, home of the Youruba people in Nigeria. So what does a city in Africa have to do with the Iifa tree, guardian of souls? Aside from Africa being the cradle of humanity and the parallels you can draw from that the myth surrounding Ife bears an uncanny resemblance to Zidane and Kuja's story.

The following is paraphrased from the wiki article as it's a nice sumary:

The supreme god [Garland] sets Obatala [Kuja] the task of creating the earth [preparing Gaia for soul transfer]. On the way Obatala finds some wine and gets drunk, remeniscant of Garland's rejection of Kuja because of his volatile and headstrong personality. The supreme god then sends the younger sibling [Zidane] to fulfill the task. The younger sibling then descends from the heavens though not quite as roughly as Kuja's dumping of the baby Zidane of the Invincible. This is where the parallels mostly end. The younger sibling succeeds in creating the earth. However, because of his success and Obatala's failiure there is lingering resentment between the two, much like how Kuja feels towards Zidane.

And where's the tree in this story? Once the land was formed the younger sibling planted a great tree on the spot where the land first formed.

Side note. I've got work again but I'm very busy until the end of the month with both moving house and working on a convention. Hopefully after that I'll get onto organizing another contest.


:blackrose: Welcome to the Kuja fan club :blackrose:

:blackrose:Purpose: to bring all fans of this wonderful villain together. and have fun of course!

:blackrose:Why? because Kuja is a wonderful character, and although he has a lot of fans, he was lacking a club.

Peace is but a shadow of death,
Desperate to forget its painful past...
Though we hope for promising years
After shedding a thousand tears,
Yesterday's sorrow constantly nears.
And while the moon still shines blue,
By dawn, it will turn to scarlet hue.

You could try GIMP. It's a free equivalent to Photoshop. It's not as powerful but for a free program it's really good and a great introduction to digital media.
