You know, all I was trying to do was figure out what those six symbols are on that band I call "Yevon's toilet paper," the ribbon worn down the front by Kinoc, Shelinda, Mika, Kelk et alia.

As often, when I set my mind to researching a question, I fail. However, I discovered some interesting things.

It's a long read. Worth it, if you like geeking about worldbuilding and mythology. 


Final Fantasy X: Yevon Glyphs and Summons Symbols
(a unified theory of sacred symbols in the world of Spira)

P.S. Would someone who knows Kanji please double-check me and make sure I haven't written "kleenex" in place of "ice" or something equally stupid? Thanks.

It was really interesting - as was the decyphering scripts on that you have the link for at the article bottom. I'd noticed that the al Bhed written language seemed to be a super-deformed English - and when surprised by something written in it, I could parse out the word. It's one of the things I like about FFX: that there are just details piled atop details in Spira.

The regular Spiran script is superdeformed English, too, although the lowercase letters are trippy.

It's amazing how many little labels there are in the game. I mean, somebody even sewed a nametag on the back of Wakka's overalls: the letter "W" is easy to see. :)
