Last Exile/Trivia

    Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.


    The writing in the series is a combination of real Greek and English transliterated into Greek. While the transliterations are mostly phonetic, there are a few quirks:

    • Eta is sometimes used correctly but sometimes used to represent H
    • Omega is sometimes used correctly but sometimes used to represent W
    • Beta is used to represent both B and V
    • Rho and Lambda are sometimes interchanged
