Hierarchy of Laguna
"Temperantia, the true embodiment of the Cardinal Virtue of Temperance, is often illustrated as an epic giant. Its body rising like a castle, Temperantia possesses two tree-like arms; a composed figure said to illustrate the total reverence in which the Laguna are held by the faithful. When the true power of the virtue of Temperance is laid upon our world, it is said to come as a tornado, capable of swallowing an entire country. Humans are helpless to guess at the impetus behind Divine Will, whether it be anger or happiness, and are left only with prayers and promises of personal temperance if only the heavens should make the storm subside."
- Temperantia actually say the "pride of an overseer" when talking about the left eye. This is supposed to be a reference to Aesir, The God of Chaos, which is the Overseer and original owner of the Eyes of the world.
- This is also the first time Aesir is hinted at in the whole series.
