Here, we'll take a look at some of the characters and their origins.
It amazing just how much the Index series had referenced to many individuals and past figures.
This just means the author of the novel really did his homework and that's makes me love it even more.
Honestly, it feels like I learned loads just from reading this chart.
So now, I'd like to pass this info to you as I've prepared a small translation below each comparison chart ^^
(Not sure if someone has already made something similar to this but I'll just put here then,
as I just found this and I haven't translated any works for quite sometime.)
A rough translation of the chart text.
Had to find/wiki/google more about these individuals but it was a good read in fact.
Found another chart after searching for more materials to add （＾ω＾）
Another translation for the chart text above.
And some were a real pain to decipher its origin.

Allow me to further explain about the origin of "Etzali":
Firstly, there's almost no such thing as "Etzali", according to my conventional search methods with Mr.Google, except for a certain fictional character in a certain anime.
The only reference I could find about that word was from a single page in the book, "Ancient America Rediscovered", which documented and explained loads about Aztec history, along with its other or true name; "Etzalqualizti", which is Nahuatl language for the 6th month. God knows how long it took me but I'm finally done this chart.
Hopefully, more charts like these will pop up for me to read and share it with everyone again ^^
And the battle of magic and science, continues...
