You guys who mentioned “berserk” last week were absolutely right! You’re so smart.
“Berserkers” were warriors who worked themselves into a ridiculous frenzy before/during a battle and became extremely formidable foes. They supposedly went out dressed only in animal skins, and “berserk” comes from the words meaning “bear shirt.” These scary warriors were such fierce fighters that they seemed invulnerable to any attack. How they worked themselves into such a state is unknown, but some people think it involves curious mushrooms. From these guys we get our modern word “berserk” which means wild, crazy, and frenzied. Awesome huh?
This also means Coal can kick some serious butt. Actually, even in life Coal was a skilled fighter. Hence going to Valhalla. We’ll also be seeing those red eyes again. :D
Speaking of, for TWC this week I have a special Guide to Eyes! I’ve mentioned before all the weird eyes throughout the story have, if not meaning, then purpose. Maybe. Of course Coal’s eyes remain the most important to pay attention to. Thanks guys! <3
