In The Kane Chronicles, the "House of Life" (or"Per Ankh) is divided into what they call "nomes"- they numbered 1 to 360- 1 being Egypt, 360 being Antarctica- Carter and Sadie Kane- the protagonists of the books live in the 21th nome, on the eastern coast of the United States of America. Also, to be fair, in the first two books, Carter and Sadie were considered criminals and heretics in the Per Ankh for studying (and, later, teaching) the path of gods, a crime that was made illegal and punishable by death shortly after the fall of Egypt.
Well, kites, as in the bird, not the... toy, I guess? Not quite sure what to call them, but, yes, there's kind of bird known as a kite, and they are, somewhat inexplicably, an arc animal, of sorts, with Carter, Sadie, Zia, and many others summoning them.
Did this idiot name the Titans after the Elementals from the Crash Bandicoot game.
