Verschiedene Erklärungen

Great Talent and Godsend

When Hiro locates his katana in a New York City museum, Ando believes that the Symbol is actually a combination of two Japanese characters — sai (which translates to great talent) and yo (which translates to godsend). (Godsend)

Later, when Ando sees the symbol in Jittetsu Arms, he calls the symbol "Godsend" again. (Landslide)

The Kanji dictionary defines yo as "bestow; participate in; give; award; impart; provide; cause; gift; godsend" and sai as "genius; years old" leading to a broader definition of the symbol under Ando's explaination, possibly as "bestowing talent/genius" or "providing/imparting ability".

Die Schlange und der Kranich

While sketching the symbol in the sand, Guillame tells his son the story of the serpent and the crane. The serpent was a creature of ambition, tired of crawling on its belly and eating grubs and mice. One day, he spotted the crane. The crane was carefree and stupid, but could fly. The sun shown on her always; she slept in the clouds and drank from the rainbows. The serpent found the crane at her watering hole, swallowed her whole, and was able to fly using her wings. The serpent flew around the sun and to the moon; he ate the clouds and played in the rain. However, Guillame notes, "What good is it to fly, if you have nowhere to go?" He says that the serpent lost touch with the ground. Guillame then scratches through his sketch. (It Takes a Village, Part 3)



  • When the shot zooms in on the symbol on the hilt of the replica sword in the Museum, the symbol is reversed. (Godsend) This may be due to the reverse side of the hilt being a mirror image of the other side.
  • Counting repeat appearances like Jessica's tattoo, the Haitian's necklace, the algorithm, and the covers of 9th Wonders! and Activating Evolution, the Symbol has appeared in every episode except Genesis. However, the symbol did appear on Chandra's desk in a promotional image for Genesis.
