I was going to finish my drawing of Inia Dragmire yesterday night, but then I found this post by tumblr user @kkachi95 I reblogged sometime ago, it's the Key cultural influences of Avatar the Last Airbender: https://kkachi95.tumblr.com/post/182959248522/key-cultural-influences-of-avatar-the-last
Anyways, I saw that and it makes me wonder what kind of IRL influences effected the "Legend of Zelda", so I ended up creating a chart of cultures and groups of people I am familiar with to try and match the culture that looked very familiar to me. It was going to be a quick thing but it took longer due to all the research and observations I've been doing, as well as making quick edits to make it look right.
Sorry if it looks like I've been putting a lot of favoritism on Termina though, it's just that I've noticed there's a lot of cultural inspirations on this one, also doesn't help that it's my most favorite game in the series. You may also noticed that there's some references to Ocarina of Time in there, in case you're wondering what some of the influences are.

South Node in Astrology
South Node rules:
Separation/ Non Attachment
Spiritual detachment from the physical realm
Illusions of the Past
People Ruled by South Node
Places Ruled by the South Node
Places of Spiritual Worship
Day Ruled by South Node
Tuesday. The reason for this can be traced to Tuesday being ruled by planet Mars. The South Node exalts in Scorpio which is ruled by Mars. Thus naturally, the south node is affiliated with the day linked with Scorpio and Mars, Tuesday.
The secondary reason that South Node is stronger at night has to do with the sect rulership of planet Mars. Mars is stronger in a night chart when the sun is below the horizon at the time of birth. This can give some evidence that the South Node may be more prominent upon influence on a Tuesday.
Time Ruled by South Node
Night. This is speculative and based on a theory the south node should oppose the North Node which rules the daytime. The South Node is about silence and isolation, two concepts that occur most heavily at night. During the nighttime, the world quiets down which gives more time for silence and release of the physical world (Both South Node concepts.) At night there is also more time for spiritual enlightenment through inward practice and detachment from daily life.
South Node is linked with the night due to the node’s link to the the past. At night we have dreams of the past and also have time to meditate on it. South Node is also linked to night because the nature of the exalted sign Scorpio is linked to the night. People also tend to more analytical thinking at night.
South Node Temperature
Cool (this signification is given due to the detached, isolated, and separated feeling associated with being cold.)
Colors of South Node
Brown (Brown in Astrology is heavily affiliated with comfort and being entrenched in the ground. There can be quite a bit of stubbornness and lack of desire to release thoughts and ideas concerning the Nodes placement. Thus what gives the entrenched nature.
Body Parts Ruled by South Node
Skin, Chronic Illness, Undetected Health Issues, Addictions of Drugs.
The South Node medically can cause medical conditions for multiples of reasons. One such main reason is due to the south node's tendency to detach from the physical realm. This can possibly lead to detaching completely from taking care of the physical body potentially. Whatever sign or house the south is in can tell a lot about the placements that might be neglected and lead to possible physical ailments.
Karaka of Houses/Theme:
The South Node is a bit tricky in what it produces for in a chart. It tends to produce more malefic results versus the North Node (which in opposition creates desires to bring results.) The South Node brings a stubborn belief that all is known concerning its placement and sign. This can cause problems producing maximum results for its position.
In one regard, the South Node can produce instinctually positive initial results with its placement. This however can be "fools gold" so to speak. The node brings Great starts due to a natural intuitive knowledge concerning the south node placement. Over time you can see a lack of adjustment and capability to keep up success in the area the south node resides.
In all; the one thing South Node produces is potential laziness and disinterest concerning getting results. There is also an uptight attitude toward letting go and embracing the node's placement. This can prohibit growth or even joy around the South Node's placement.
