Godric‘s first appearance on True Blood in the episode Never Let Me Go was very impressive. While he has the appearance of of boy he is clearly referred to by other vampires as one of the most powerful vampires.
Eric‘s comments on Godric leave no doubt that he is way more stronger than him. The more he is concerned that Godric has disappeared. As I believe not many were surprised, when Eric revealed that Godric is his maker.
He is said to be about 2000 years old.I did some fist research on ancient tattoos but I couldn’t place them.
The tattoos on his right arm were interpretated by others as two rows of runes, some of them are thought to translate into the following:
TYR = T
MANNAZ = M
DAEG = D
EOLH = Z
IS = I
OTHEL = O
LAGUZ = L
HAGALL = H
Some symbolic meanings:
TYR (also TIR, TIW, TIWAZ): represents the god of the same name, who is associated with combat, particularly single combat, as well as victory and glory. This god’s name is also where we get the day of the week “Tuesday” from (Tyr’s day). It’s a very masculine rune, and usually represents some kind of competitive success or victory.
MANNAZ: means “man,” generally in the sense of humankind, rather than gender, and often represents some kind of cooperation or interdependence.
DAEG: means “day,” and usually indicates some kind of growth or increase.
EOLH: meaning obscure, thought to represent “elk,” can represent good fortune or protection.
IS : pronounced “ice,” and means the same, often represents something ‘frozen,’ or put on hold.
OTHEL: means “estate,” “possession,” or “heritage,” and represents acquisition of possessions, inheritance, or wealth.
LAGUZ: means “water,” often a lake, and can represent imagination or intuition. It’s a very feminine rune.
HAGALL: means “hail,” often represents forces outside of human control, a disruption.
Is t just me or does Godrics tattoo at the back look a little bit like the claw wound Sookie got from that creature?
I was thinking that maybe Godric’s tattoo meant something like ‘touched by power’ or god even.
