   You can see the sign of the EL (Λ) all over the world...  And the ICHOR, the substance of their blood, that is in lots of us, all over the world, feel its AWAKENING!...


  In Greek mythology, Ichor (play /ˈaɪkər/ or /ˈɪkər/; Ancient Greek: ιχώρ) is the ethereal golden fluid that is the blood of the gods and/or immortals.

   In classical myth:

   Ichor originates in Greek mythology, where it is the ethereal fluid that is the Greek gods' blood, sometimes said to retain the qualities of the immortal's food and drink, ambrosia or nectar. It was considered to be golden in color, as well as lethally toxic to mortals. Great demigods and heroes occasionally attacked gods and released ichor, but gods rarely did so to each other in Homeric myth.

  Iliad V. 364–382

    Blood follow'd, but immortal; ichor pure

    Such as the blest inhabitants of heaven

    May bleed, nectareous; for the Gods eat not

    Man's food, nor slake as he with sable wine

    Their thirst, thence bloodless and from death exempt. †

†   We are not to understand that the poet ascribes the immortality of the Gods to their abstinence from the drink and food of man, for most animals partake of neither, but the expression is elliptic and requires to be supplied thus—They drink not wine but nectar, eat not the food of mortals, but ambrosia; thence it is that they are bloodless and from death exempt.

W. Cowper, The Iliad of Homer, Schol. per Vill

   In Ancient Crete, tradition told of Talos, a giant man of bronze portrayed with wings. When Cretan mythology was appropriated by theGreeks, they imagined him more like the Colossus of Rhodes. He possessed a single vein running with ichor that was stoppered by a nail in his back. Talos guarded Europa on Crete and threw boulders at intruders until the Argonauts came to get the Golden Fleece and the sorceress Medea took out the nail, releasing the ichor and killing him.

   In pathology, "ichor" is an antiquated term for a watery discharge from a wound or ulcer with an unpleasant or fetid (offensive) smell. The Greek Christian writer Clement of Alexandria used "ichor" in this sense in a polemic against the pagan Greek gods.

In fiction

   H. P. Lovecraft often used "ichor" in his descriptions of other-worldly creatures, most prominently in his nightmarish detail of the remains of Wilbur Whateley, in "The Dunwich Horror". The term "ichor" is often used in fantasy contexts by authors as a synonym for "blood" or "ooze", to the point that some consider it clichéd. Author Ursula K. Le Guin, in "From Elfland to Poughkeepsie", calls the term "the infallible touchstone of the seventh-rate."

   It is also mentioned in the poem Impossible To Tell by Robert Pinsky.

   In Rick Riordan's series Percy Jackson & the Olympians, the Greek god Ares is injured and his ichor is noted.

   In Cassandra Clare's series The Mortal Instruments, the blood of the demons and angels is referred to as ichor.
