TAGON: What does "Tikkutsafa" mean?
BRISTLECONE: *over comm* "T'kkkuts Afa." Two words. "Afa" means a lot of things, but the original meaning is "wind."
Wind was considered a mystical force during ancient Oafan history, and is synonymous with "unmoved mover" and "God."
"T'kkkuts" is a string of sounds that are painful for Oafans to voice. It's an obscenity.
It, too, means a lot of things. Anger is evoked by the tone, but the word typically specifies injury, damage, and violation of self.
TAGON: "Angry god" sounds accurate to me.
BRISTLECONE: *over comm* It is the name an angry god uses for itself, but the name means "Broken Wind."
