【书籍搬运】Aedra and Daedra 伊德拉和迪德拉

Recommended Posts

原文: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Aedra_and_Daedra
翻译:YQ

神明、恶魔、伊德拉、迪德拉种种称号,外行人往往对此困惑不清。于是他们总会混淆着使用。

“伊德拉”和“迪德拉”不是相对而言的。这是精灵语,准确无误。如阿祖拉在天际和晨风都是迪德拉。“伊德拉”通常译作“先祖”,这是赛洛迪尔语里最接近精灵语原意的称谓。“迪德拉”的意思,粗略的说,“非我们的先祖。”这个区别对于丹莫至关重要,因为他们在思想上与其它精灵的分歧正是植根于他们的神学族谱。

伊德拉代表静止。迪德拉代表变化。

伊德拉创造了凡人世界,并被束缚为大地之骨1。迪德拉无法进行创造,却有力量改变。

作为世界规则的一部分,伊德拉们可以被杀死。洛可罕和月亮为证。

而世界规则对迪德拉不起作用,变化多端的他们只能够被驱逐。

Aedra and Daedra
Overview of the basic differences between Gods, Demons, Aedra, and Daedra


The designations of Gods, Demons, Aedra, and Daedra, are universally confusing to the layman. They are often used interchangeably.
"Aedra" and "Daedra" are not relative terms. They are Elvish and exact.Azura is a Daedra both in Skyrim and Morrowind. "Aedra" is usually translated as "ancestor," which is as close as Cyrodilic can come to this Elven concept. "Daedra" means, roughly, "not our ancestors." This distinction was crucial to the Dunmer, whose fundamental split in ideology is represented in their mythical genealogy.
Aedra are associated with stasis. Daedra represent change.
Aedra created the mortal world and are bound to the Earth Bones. Daedra, who cannot create, have the power to change.
As part of the divine contract of creation, the Aedra can be killed. Witness Lorkhan and the moons.
The protean Daedra, for whom the rules do not apply, can only be banished.
