Discuss the beautiful, powerful Pyrrha Nikos!
I wanna know more about her Spear.......
Well, her name is potentially problematic...
Pyrrha - derived from Pyrrhus. A Greek king whose name is the origin of the word 'Pyrrhic".
Nikos - Nike is a Greek war goddess, whose name means "victory".
Her name, thus means, Pyrrhic Victory. Which is phrase described by Urban Dictionary as "a victory which is only achieved with heavy losses on one's own side. "
And combine that with Jaune's potential story arc (since its most likely gonna be a Joan of Arc style one), these two are gonna be in for a world of hurt............
I smell a tragic love story for those two
Gotta love her Rifle/Spear combo, as well as her shield.
Words from Monty's twitter!
Her rifle/spear is named Miló, meaning "Speak".
Her shield is named Akoúo, meaning 'Listen".
Probably my favorite character out of them all thus far.
Pyrrha's definitely my favorite member of Team JNPR, after Jaune, and second on my list of the females of the series I'd date.
