This is the language spoken by the gods, and as such should have qualities commensurate with the preference of those gods. Therefore it should be (in order of importance):

  • Beautiful
  • Possible of expressing truths about the universe in few words
  • Regular

In particular, the gods who will speak it are The Lion and The Octopus. As such it should also have the following qualities:

  • Three genders, lion, octopus and human (neuter)
  • The sounds of the language should reflect the genders. Lion-type words should contain rhotic sounds in the declensions etc, whereas octopus-type words should contain clicks and sibilants.
