Trivia

Origin

Glastrier possibly draws inspiration from the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse with Glastrier representing the White Horse of Conquest given its forceful nature and it's acts of taking what it wants by force. It may also take inspiration from a unicorn. The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland, which the Crown Tundra is based on. Unicorns in mythology are also stated to be wild beings and only those with pure hearts can tame them. This is shown with how Calyrex is able to tame and ride Glastrier. Alternatively, could be based on the Púca, a mythological shapeshifting creature ridden by the High King Of Ireland that often took the form of a horse. The Púca was tamed by a bridle made of its tail hair, like the Reigns of Unity, and it tended to come in either black or white, just like Spectrier and Glastrier. It may also take inspiration from the white chess pieces in the game chess, specifically the Knight pieces, which depict a horse's head.

Etymology

Glastrier comes from glacier and destrier (a medieval battle horse).
