The bird of Hermes is my name eating my wings to make me tame.
Okay so this line has shown up in a number of anime, games etc. including on Alucard's coffin in Hellsing and it's always kind of confused me but then I ran into it in connection with alchemy and apparently found the original source of this line in "The Ripley Scroll"http://www.levity.com/alchemy/rscroll.html
I thought it was interesting for reference and I was wondering if anyone else knew about this? and what does it have to do with vampires and the world of hellsing in general? Okay I think I might have confused myself more with this but, none the less its kinda interesting at the very least.
uh...generally I'm confused and thought some people might like to read the Ripley scroll, as I don't know I've ever heard any explaination of this that makes sense... if I'm repeating someone go ahead and delete this please.
