Trivia

Origin

Sigilyph is based on the Condor Nazca Lines (which are 1000 plus meter geoglyphs formed in Peru between 500 BC and 500 AD) or a kachina doll (dolls used by the Pueblo people of the Southwestern United States for ceremonies). Specifically, it is based on the Nazca bird in the Nazca Desert, likely created by the ancient tribes to be seen by the gods in the sky.

Etymology

Sigilyph comes from sigil and glyph (both of which refer to old symbols), as it is associated with ancient culture and writing.

Its Japanese name, Shinborā, appears to be a combination of symbol and bora (a katabatic wind).
