— Etihw to Kcalb, The Gray Garden

Etihw (エティーウ) is a major character in The Gray Garden. They are the god of the Gray Garden, with Kcalb being their devil counterpart. In the past, Etihw fought in the Great War.

Physical Description

Etihw Sprite.png

Etihw has black eyes with black pupils, raceless white skin, short neck-length black hair, and "crown" of white diamonds. Their clothing is monotone, with mostly white and gray. They wear a long dress and cape decorated mostly with geometric diamond shapes. Overall, their appearance is quite feminine. Five diamonds float around them.

In the past, Etihw's appearance was slightly different. Their clothing had more detailed diamond patterning, and their diamonds had a pointier and thinner shape. The white hues of their clothing were also more varied. Past Etihw walked rather than floating, causing their long robe and dress to bunch up at the bottoms of their feet. Compared to the softer expression they hold in present day, Etihw bore a more severe, cold, and lifeless expression in the past.

In Garden Gray The, Etihw has short messy black hair with a "crown" of white diamonds. They wore a white shirt, a gray vest, and a gray hoodie jacket with dark gray diamond shapes. They also wore long gray pants that somehow has a shape of a shoe at each end and white diamonds at the side of the "shoes."

Personality

Etihw normally has a very flirty "que sera sera" attitude; they are a bit lazy and prefer lounging around over acting formally. They had a somewhat sheltered upbringing; compared to other gods, they are more innocent and naïve on subjects like brutality and other-world negativity. They lack knowledge on many topics, and because of this, Etihw is overwhelmed when dealing with new and uncomfortable situations such as being held in captivity and tortured to the degree where they cry. Despite their usually casual attitude, Etihw is able to behave mature and serious when the situation calls for it, as is evident when Ivlis and his underlings invade the Gray Garden and threaten the peace.

In the past, Etihw used to be much colder but has changed since then; the only time they revealed remnants of their past side was when Ivlis threatened Kcalb's life. It has been stated that in terms of physical strength, Etihw was pretty strong back during their more "extreme period" during the war. [2]

Background

For reasons unknown, Etihw sealed their devil counterpart Kcalb underground. He was sealed for centuries, until he broke free, beginning a war against the angels and their god.

During the Great War, Etihw was one of the central catalysts, being the leader of the angels. Fighting against Kcalb, they slaughtered many demons, and in turn, he slaughtered many angels. When the war ended, Etihw was left with only two of their closest subordinates alive. In memory of the ones who died during the war, Etihw "reincarnated" some of the fallen warriors as young angels.

They are the youngest known god. [3]

Relationships

Relatives

Kcalb

Kcalb's and Etihw's mutual romantic feelings.

Kcalb is Etihw's devil counterpart and husband. They often tease him over any number of subjects, frequently best them at games such as Othello, and often bicker with each other. A favorite topic of Etihw's is teasing Kcalb about is his age, even though they are older than him.

Despite their frequent bantering, the two get along very well and deeply care for each other, enough so that other similarly powerful figures, like Reficul, mention the idiosyncrasy of their relationship in comparison to other gods and devils. The two share a very close bond with one another, close to the degree that Kcalb has a near-phantom "sense" over the well-being of Etihw. Though Etihw is older than him, they depend on him for knowledge on topics such as other-world cruelty and brutality.

Observed through some artworks and The Gray Garden, Kcalb and Etihw are in a romantic relationship. To a question asked by a fan regarding whether or not Kcalb and Etihw were "married or dating," Deep-Sea Prisoner responded with "YEP(^◡^)." [4]

In the past, they were great enemies, with Etihw sealing Kcalb underground for centuries for unknown reasons. The two fought in the Great War after Kcalb broke free from his prison, each slaughtering the other's subordinates.

Silhouette

Silhouette is the daughter of Etihw and Kcalb. They are on good terms. She is said to be similar to Etihw. They are both quiet and reserved and very close to each other. [5]

The Gray Garden Cast

Wodahs

Wodahs is Etihw's Head Angel and subordinate, who has served them since before the Angel war. When asked if Wodahs was created by Etihw, Deep-Sea Prisoner responded, "I can say yes and no." He was not exactly created by Etihw. That is partially the case. [6] When asked again if he was an angel made by Etihw, Deep-Sea Prisoner responded, "You could say that, but you could also say that isn't the case." [7] Wodahs takes orders directly from Etihw and Kcalb and is often the mediator whenever the two start to argue, often acting as a parent for the two. Wodahs claims that the reason why he chose to stay one-eyed was to remind Etihw and Kcalb to never forget what happened during the Great War.

Ivlis

This section is incomplete. You can help improve this article by expanding it.

Ivlis attempted to invade Etihw's realm, which he miserably failed, succeeding in only making Etihw his enemy. After his defeat by Yosafire and her friends, Etihw threatened him coldly to leave or face dire consequence.

Reficul

Reficul was a "passing demon" that aided in the force against Ivlis' invasion, though Etihw never met her personally until after the invasion; the two formally meet after Ivlis's invasion but communicated beforehand via Etihw's diamonds. Etihw and Reficul are acquaintances and are on good terms because of the help Reficul gave to stop Ivlis' invasion.

Alela Grora

The exact relationship that Fate and Etihw share is unknown, but it appears that Fate holds an unfavorable view of Etihw.

Other Characters

Satanick

Satanick is an acquaintance through Kcalb; the two meet formally after the events of Gray Garden. Satanick finds Etihw cute, to the chagrin of Kcalb. Both are on rather good terms with each other; although, it appears Etihw is unaware that Satanick uses them as a method to annoy Kcalb.

Ciel, Rigatona, & Sherbet

Ciel, Rigatona, and Sherbet were all Etihw's loyal subordinates during the Great War.

Siralos

Siralos is an acquaintance of Etihw's. Siralos ensures he is polite to his fellow god, even going as far as to kiss Etihw's hand upon first meeting them. Etihw in turn seems rather surprised at Siralos' behavior, being unsure of how to react to him.

Trivia

  • "Etihw" is "white" spelled backwards.
  • Etihw is a bokkuko, a woman who speaks with the more masculine personal pronoun "boku." Their gender was previously mistranslated in a way that was thought to make them non-binary. This is due to the word "中性的" which has been used by Deep-Sea Prisoner to describe Etihw, meaning androgynous presenting, while agender (or a close comparison in the Japanese LGBT+ community) would be "Xジェンダー." [1]
  • In the past during the war, Etihw stood on their own legs.
  • Deep-Sea Prisoner stated that the tree with the sword in the Gray Garden is a reflection of something remaining in the corners of Etihw's mind. [9]

    A homage to Gustav Klimt 's The Kiss

  • Deep-Sea Prisoner has made a homage to the painting The Kiss by Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt featuring Etihw and Kcalb.
  • A GIF banner of Etihw at a beach used to have been displayed in Deep-Sea Prisoner's Sunahama log page. The theme of the banner changed depending on the user's machine local time.
  • A Sunahama update stated that their sexuality is "Kcalb."
  • From June 28 to August 3, 2017, Deep-Sea Prisoner hosted a character popularity poll that let people vote on their three favorite characters. When the results came out on September 7, 2017, Etihw was ranked 6th. [10]
  • Their underwear color is "a secret." [2]
  • Deep-Sea Prisoner imagines Yū Kobayashi as Etihw's voice actress. [6]
