Calormene myth about Aslan
Has anyone heard the new information in the "People of Calormen" section from an acceptable source? It's certainly not in the books, at least not in nearly that much detail. Wikia Contributor who added that info, where did you get it? Lasaraleen Tarkheena (talk) 00:14, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
Well, the legend about their view on Aslan certainly seems possible, considering how Rabadash reacted to him in HHB, and the fact they're such an arrogrant people. But I don't remember ever hearing this legend spoken in a Calormen POV, though I know the stuff about the Calormenes being descended from outlaws and such came from that Narnia companion/timeline that Lewis or someone published years ago.

I have a hard time believing it. Lewis mentions a Calormene tale of "a Narnian demon in the form of a Lion"; it would seem odd for him to also be a part of their pantheon. I also got the impression that he was much less central in their belief system than this info would suggest. I guess I'll leave it for now because it doesn't run directly contrary to the books and it's therefore vaguely possible it's reliable, but I want to know where it came from.

Forgive me, but nothing that I remember reading about the Calormen people ever sounded oriental to me. Their culture sounded more Arabic, and the people also looked like it from the illustrations provided by Pauline Baynes. Storyseeker1 (talk) 21:24, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
