Obscure AuronLu trivia of the evening.

Kitt on the semi-moribund Auron x Lulu yahoogroup mentioned something which a onetime classics major like me should've spotted immediately.

Mars Crest/Sigil (god of war) = Auron
Venus Crest/Sigil (goddess of love and beauty and sex) = Lulu

In Greco-Roman mythology, these two deities were famous for their love affair, although (unlike all other divine couples I can think of) they never married.

quite an interesting point! I dunno if SquareEnix completely missed it or decided to be subtle... or we all could just be reading too much into it. :D

I suspect that they didn't know that those two deities are paired off as lovers, and were simply going for the symbolism of Auron as war god and Lulu as sexy goddess. It's still cute. :)
