Talk:Gali (Generation 1)

From BIONICLEsector01

Gali's page says that she landed on a beach near Le-Wahi... but according to this image that i reblogged (i'm fairly certain it's from the faber files?) she landed by Ga-Wahi. Do we have a source to resolve this discrepancy? Intelligence4 (talk) 06:28, 22 April 2014 (CEST)

Another one of those slight discrepancies based on the differences in early media, no doubt. I don't recall where either one comes from personally, although I suppose I can go look it up. Are we going based on images, or a text description? -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 06:43, 22 April 2014 (CEST)
So should we just remove that bit of info to avoid speculation? Intelligence4 (talk) 19:14, 22 April 2014 (CEST)

You reblogged it from a guy that isn't Faber and that guy himself did not reblog it. He may have downloaded it from somewhere, but I just looked through the Faber Files really quickly (good stuff in there) and didn't see that image. Either way, Gali's landing would have been in the early Hapka books. Those are considered semi-canon, but I don't know if the details of Gali's legend are considered accurate. I would imagine so... but looking it up is preferable to simply removing the data. Finding the original source of the image would also be important. Does BS01 have the image? Is it official? Was it fan made? That's the sort of thing I'd like to know before we actually based a decision off of it. BS01 does have it, and it isn't marked as Fan Made. So... ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

This seems to come from that poster, that was made for Toy "R" Us in 2001. I didn't see any location mentionned for Gali's landing in BC1 after a quick check. Maxim21 (talk) 09:41, 23 April 2014 (CEST)
That image might be fanmade, Tomana, I'm not making any promises in that regard =P.
The TRU image works for me, though. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 02:10, 24 April 2014 (CEST)

So... Intelligence4 (talk) 19:16, 24 April 2014 (CEST)

Well, I think we should go with Ga-Wahi. The map from TRU is clearly in Ga-Wahi; I guess Le-Wahi was stated here because in BC1 Gali is said to enter in a thick jungle just after going out of the water (just realized that must be why it's there), but the Ga-Wahi article state Ga-Wahi also had jungles. Maxim21 (talk) 19:59, 24 April 2014 (CEST)
Agreed - another thing i think should be considered is that in BC1 (wait, that means tale of the toa, right?) gali swam ashore... so her canister must have opened and she reconstructed herself in the ocean? or perhaps she landed in ga-wahi, rebuilt, and then swam to le-wahi? Intelligence4 (talk) 20:26, 24 April 2014 (CEST)
That's probably one of the non-canon things. I wouldn't overthink it. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 22:55, 24 April 2014 (CEST)

So, for wording's sake, what does BC1 specifically say? Does it open with her swimming ashore? That sort of thing. I don't think I have the book anymore, and it definitely isn't up here at college with me =/ ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

"The waters lifted her, carrying her along a soft current of warmth. She didn't know who or where she was, but she knew she belonged here in the calm, cool blue of the sea. That was perhaps the only thing she knew for sure.
That and her name: Gali.
But I can't just float here forever, she reminded herself. I have things to do. If only I knew what they were...
She had no cerain memories, but many uncertain ones - fragments of thoughts and images. There was urgency in those fragments, though some of them hinted at peace as well. Especially one, an endless sea of calm waters surronding an island, embracing it and soothing its ills...
Gali kicked swiftly forward with her flip-perlike feet. Her hooked arms cut through the water, and the ridged edges on her blue mask sent bubbly ripples out to the sides she swam. The sea was full of life, but Gali felt strangely alone.
As she swam, she felt a shivering tremor radiate through the water. A brightly colored eel raced past her. Several schools of fish followed.
[Gali find and battle a Tarakava]
She felt the waters gather and respond to her call. As the giant sea creature burst to the surface a short distance away, an enormous wave formed around her. Her vicious pursuer leaped forward, but the tidal wave rocketed Gali away toward the shore, faster than any creature couuld swim. Gali smiled as the water carried her to safety. So this is what I am meant to do, she thought. I am here to command the seas. But for what purpose?
A few minutes later, Gali shook herself dry as she stepped out of the surf onto the beach. She stood there for a moment, looking around, strangely reluctant to leave the water.
She glanced across the beach. A thick, dripping jungle began where the sands left off. The humidity of the place reached out, beckoning to her, and she could not resist its call."
I was too lazy to fully copy the chapter, but there are the relevant passages. I guess adding the battle with the Tarakava to the article should also be done.

Wow, that was a lot more than I was looking for, but that will do! ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

How's that? ζω·τωμαναExternal Image
I think that looks pretty good. Intelligence4 (talk) 18:15, 25 April 2014 (CEST)

Current Location

Why is it Bara Magna and not spherus? the planet was reformed, so... Intelligence4 (talk) 18:04, 6 March 2017 (CET)

The Bara Magna is the part of the Spherus Magna, and she's in that region. By the way, with that logic, before she emigrated to the Bara Magna/Spherus Magna why was her location is Metru Nui, if this city-island was inside of the Great Spirit Robot? -- SurelNuva (Talk) 18:17, 6 March 2017 (CET)
ah, ok. bara magna is a pretty huge area though, it's not very specific - i kinda think saying someone is on bara magna is not much better than saying they're on spherus magna, since it's so big, whereas metru nui was a much more specific area of the robot. do we have any landmarks where the story left off that we could make a note of? Intelligence4 (talk) 19:07, 6 March 2017 (CET)
The "camp" what they built. But the only thing what we know about it, that it's on the Bara Magna, maybe near where the GSR lays. So the Bara Magna should be her location. -- SurelNuva (Talk) 19:33, 6 March 2017 (CET)
didn't the robot land somewhere near where the agori villages were? (like as opposed to on the other side of the planet). could we use anything like that to make it more specific than what used to be a whole planet? idk, i'm sort of just spitballing here.Intelligence4 (talk) 19:39, 6 March 2017 (CET)
