Rahu, Cahalith, Elodoth, Ithaeur, Irraka.
Where do these names - of the five auspices found in Werewolf: The Forsaken - come from, IRL? What real world words, terms, languages do they originate in, and why have the designers picked these?
What I'm looking for: I remember, for example, that the word "theurge" (used in the oWoD Werewolf, also an auspice) comes from "theurgy", which Google defines as
"the operation or effect of a supernatural or divine agency in human affairs"
and, still according to Google, has its roots in the Greek "theos" (god) and "-ergos" (working), which combine into "theourgia" (sorcery), which makes it pretty obvious why the designers of that game picked it.
So... what about the words Rahu, Cahalith, Elodoth, Ithaeur, and Irraka? :)
