The guardian golems reacted to the awakened weapon and set upon Leicia, yet the steel in her hand quickly shifted in the shape of a keen blade. The sensation of slicing through the stone bodies as if they were flower stems sent shivers down her spine. She shrank from all that brought about pain and fear, yet her new discovery granted her dominating power and an accompanying sense of invincibility. Permitting the mysterious metal occupancy of her right hand may not be a terrible idea, so she thought.
Leicia is a rare variant of feminine name Leticia; appears as Letitia, Letizia and other spelling variants in different languages, derived from the Latin greeting laetitia "joy, happiness", "gladness", "delight", also the name Roman goddess of fertility and abundance. It appeared in the form "Lettice" in medieval England and in "Leticia" as a synonym for "happiness" in ancient Spanish, but they are rarely used today.
