Aurora Virtuosa Concilia

LoreEdit

Concilia's palace is said to be somewhere within the reaches of the night sky. The vivid light that streams from her hands illuminates her location with artistic splendor, stimulating the imagination of all who witness the sight. Though she leads a solitary life, she takes pleasure in knowing countless creatures enjoy the spectacular display of her auroras.

Name originEdit

An aurora or aurora polalis is a natural light display in the sky (from the Latin word aurora, "sunrise" or the Roman goddess of dawn), predominantly seen in the high latitude polar (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis (or the northern lights). Auroras seen within the auroral oval may be directly overhead, but from farther away, they illuminate the poleward horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the Sun were rising from an unusual direction. Its southern counterpart, the aurora australis (or the southern lights), has features that are almost identical to the aurora borealis and changes simultaneously with changes in the northern auroral zone.

Aurora came from Latin aurora as "dawn, daybreak, sunrise". Virtuosa translates from Latin as "virtuoso", from virtus "virtue, excellence, skill". Concilia translates from Latin as "councils", singular concilis. Spectrum came from Latin spectrum "appearance, image, apparition," from specere "to look at, view".
