'House of Owls': Luz finally gets her talisman, and it's perfect for her
Luz Noceda has her own talisman, which fits her character well.
The House of Owls returns on January 21 with the second special of Season 3, "For the Future," and needless to say, a lot happened. Luz (Sarah-Nicole Robles) and her friends return to the Boiling Islands with Camilla (Elizabeth Grullon), only to find that Collector (Fry Fry) Fryda Wolff (played by Fryda Wolff) has been turning the residents of the island into puppets and treating them as real playthings. All the while, Kim (Alex Hirsch) plays the part of his best friends and is careful to reason with them. But one of the most exciting things this episode brought viewers was the long-awaited reveal of Luz's amulet.
What Is a Palisman?
In the first season, The House of Owls introduces the concept of an amulet: a magical creature that is a witch's closest companion and most powerful magical tool. The first talisman they introduce is Burt the Owl, Ida's (Wendi Malick) lovable little owl companion who lives on her magic wand. Eda explained to Luz that when a young witch comes of age, they carve amulets themselves from the branches of a special tree called the Palistrom tree. In the season 2 episode "Amulets of the Hunt," Luz's classmates each adopted their own amulets, But when Luz tries to adopt one of her own, none of them want to bond with her. This makes Luz the only one in her class and her circle of friends who doesn't yet have a talisman of her own.
Then, in the episode "Clouds on the Horizon", Luz finally carves her own amulet, but instead of carving it into a living thing, she carves it in an egg, saying she wants her amulet to have a chance to decide It is what it wants to be. While it's a bit disappointing for fans who have been waiting for Luz to get her own amulet for so long, it does give them more time to speculate on what her talisman will end up being. But then, near the end of the latest episode, "For the Future," Luz's amulet hatches from an egg and the world is introduced to Stringbean.
Luz and Stringbean
A Stringbean is a snake-changer, a snake-like creature that can change its shape to look like a bat, a scorpion, a dragon, anything. She also has feline features such as triangular pointed ears and tufts of hair on the sides of her face. this, combine Her white face and purple-blue shading on her body make her very similar to Luz's cat hoodie.
Stringbean's ability to shapeshift appears to be unique to her, as no other amulet has been shown to have this ability thus far. This makes sense, since almost everything else Luz does is different from other witches. From the way she uses magic by drawing glyphs, to carving her amulet into an egg to hatch later, Luz is always good at thinking outside the box. Her amulets will naturally be as unique as she is.
Speaking of boxes, before Stringbean is fully formed, she appears to be just a spinning ball of magical energy. This prompts Luz's mother and each of her friends to guess what type of creature her talisman will be. One train? a bird? otter? a bat? a snake? As it turns out, they were all fine! Luz said she was going to let her amulet choose who she wanted to be, so she decided to be everything! Stringbean doesn't want to be stuck in the box she's forced to go to Just one thing in her life. She wants the freedom to change herself and discover new possibilities for herself, just as Lutz did when he decided to become a witch.
Then, something Luz said finally brought her amulet back to life. After Camilla's heart-to-heart with her daughter, she reveals her true relationship with Luz and how much she regrets not being there for her when she needed it most, Luz realizes. "The only thing I really want...is to be understood!" Luz's life, until now, has been feeling like an outcast for being herself. Now that she knows her own mother grew up just like her, she finally knows what it's like to be seen for real. When she realizes this, her amulet eggs hatch in a huge burst of magical power. All Luz has to do is accept her heart's desire to eventually bond with her amulet and bring it to life.
The arrival of Luz's amulet is something viewers have been focusing on Waited patiently for a long time. The writers really pulled out all the stops and gave this special little witch a magical companion that was as special and unique as she was. Stringbean is the perfect match for Luz, and it's exciting to imagine what the two of them will go through together when The Owl House reaches its finale.
