Etymology[edit | edit source]
The name "Lifréia" is Latin for "Land of Lifre". Lifre was a mythological being of Lifreian mythology, often called the "Dark Star of The Morning". Legend has that he killed his brother in a feud over his first cousin, a maiden desired by both brothers. Lifre won, but his soul was shattered, for he killed of his own kin.
The kinslayer deity is especially popular with folk singers within the Empire. The first known usage of the "Lifréia" name was in a parodic screenplay written by Ivan VII, a satire of the "eurospy" genre popular during the 1960's.
