Hatori Chise was ostracised by the society for her weird and unconventional behaviour which made no sense to general beings. What followed was a life of despair and self loathing until Elias Ainsworth bought her off an auction for a whooping price of 5 million pounds. But why? For just one reason, because she is a sleigh beggy. What’s a sleigh beggy and what does it mean for Chise? Let’s go on a curiousity vovage into the world of manga and mystery.
In the manga, the term slay vega is used instead of sleigh beggy. While the former certainly sounds cooler and easier to spell, the latter is the more accurate one. In the Manx language, sleigh beggy is a term used to describe a fairy which originally inhabited the isle of the man.
It literally means, “little people” kinda like the equivalent of fairy in English.
In Chise’s use case, the term is used to make her stand out. In layman terms, it means she is an extraordinary and rare individual.So while, the scalnator’s intended meaning for “Slay Vega” may have been THE DEAREST CHILD OF NIGHT , it’s actual meaning to English speakers is to kill a star.
