    Ruhk Question (may be spoilers)

    I haven’t made any posts on any manga forums in many years so I hope I’m not making too much of a fool out myself with the title and such; but moving on…

    My question is about the statement made long back in the manga by Al-Thamen about “Solomon’s Ruhk”… was it ever stated (in verse or by the Mangaka) that it was just a metaphor?


    I need to know this, since its among the most import bits to figure out the Magi world.

    could you specify which arc was it in? or what was the current situation they are in that time?

    Ah sorry probably should of made it clearer (or more detailed).

    Way back Ithnan referred to the white ruhk as “Solomon’s Ruhk” which stuck with me as it was a very bizarre statement to make, since it would be refereeing to the ruhk inside Sinbad and Alibaba. I cant help but feel that the mangaka had just dropped a major hint right under our noses.

    Ahh here it Chapter 113 page 12.

    It could be some mistranslation or misinterpretation. I'm not sure...
    it must have been that Solomon's rukh is actually the white rukh

    So far it doesnt 'seem' to be mistranslated (I've seen at least one that has the same wording), but that doesnt mean there wasnt a mistake made, hence why I am asking here (there are likely people here that can read Japanese).

    If its not a mistranslation, or misinterpretation, or a metaphor...

    ....then the implication of that one statement are on the level of Exterminatus.
