|“||But that original power was passed down in secret. The Nine Olde Witches sealed it within Arcturus. That itself is the magic which can reconstruct the world--Grand Triskellion.||”|
–Ursula, Chariot of Fire
DescriptionEditThe Seal of the Grand Triskellion is unlike the conventional pattern in that its three spirals do not share a common vertex. Instead, each spiral of the Triskellion meets at hands that overlap the other counterclockwise. From the center outward, each "arm" forms a tight spiral with the other two arms. This symbol is closed in a circle resembling the inside of a flower with seven small equidistant petals. From each petal grows a large leaf with a Word of Arcturus written on it in the Luna Alphabet. The tip of each leaf resembles a crescent moon. This seal is superimposed on a large tree.
The Grand Triskellion itself is a small wooden stick that has no power of its own, but when it receives the power to believe in magic, it releases a force capable of changing the world.
The Grand Triskellion was the seed of the creation that grew fed by the power to believe of humans, creating the Yggdrasil, the cosmic tree that gave birth to all magic. However, as people began to believe less in magic, the presence of Yggdrasil eventually disappeared. The Grand Triskellion remained protected and passed generation in generation by the witches. Finally, the Nine Olde Witches decided to seal it inside the Arcturus Forest, using a seal that could only be broken by the power of the Seven Words of Arcturus of the Claiomh Solais, thus waiting for a witch with a power of believing able to undo its seal and unleash the power of the Grand Triskellion in the world once again.
Over time, a witch known as Chariot du Nord was chosen by the Claiomh Solais to be the one who revived the words. However, she was unable to do so. Ten years later, the young Atsuko Kagari was chosen as well as Chariot, achieving that the seven words were revived. Croix Meridies managed to undo the Nine Olde Witches seal by force but was unable to use the power of the Grand Triskellion because of their lack of faith in magic. Nevertheless, Akko managed to use the Grand Triskellion to stop a great threat and to exparsir the magic of the Grand Triskellion by the world.
- The Triskelion is a motif formed by a triple spiral with 60 degree rotational symmetry. The symbol is most associated with the Isle of Man and its flag. (Luna Nova Academy is located on the Isle of Man)
