The realm of Ga'Hoole and its owls belongs to Kathryn Lasky... what lives and characters you read of here are mine.
These characters are, in many ways, the product of my life, heart, and soul... this one work here is perhaps what the human that is me can be desriped with.
Here are a few common words used in the realm of owls:
Ga'Hoole: a legendary kingdom of guardian knights that have sworn an ancient oath to make strong the weak, mend the broken, vanquish evil, and make powerless those who abuse the frail.
Ga: a word that explains greatness in the form of seeds that grow within an owl's gizzard and not all owls have such seeds.
Hoole: a king from ancient times that was thought to have lived 1000 years ago and was the one to have raised the kingdom of Ga'Hoole to what this great tree now is.
Churr: the form of laughter for owls.
Gizzard: A second stomach owls have for digesting food In it, food waste is pressed into a neat little pack to be thrown vomited from the beak (yarped). For owls, it works like the human heart; where the strongest emotions are felt.
Battle Claws: powerful metal talons that can slip over those of owls
Botkin: a special bag for carrying.
Glaux: owls' Higher Being, god
Glaumora: owl heaven
Hagsmire: Owl hell
