It was a comforting combination of the symbols belonging to his adopted brothers: the sun worn by Damian, the White God, and the star worn by Jule, the expelled immortal and eastern hemisphere's commander.
He walked until he recognized the Guardians' station, a single story house nestled between two similar houses and marked by a star and an arrow – the White God's symbols – in the corner of one window.
It was a silver coin, warmed by his skin, with a circle of cuneiform symbols surrounding a star with two arrows.
Her own necklace had the same symbols surrounding five stars.
He lifted a small soul-tracking device off the table, a round compass whose edges were lined with symbols from a dead language too old for him to read.

He showed Gabriel the drawing of the different symbols with a sketch of the sun on one end and the ground on the other.
Instead of pointing to the four directions, its edges were lined with ancient symbols he took to be writing from the time-before-time.
