A Shorm can also refer to "best friend". This meaning derives from the idea that true best friends would be trusted enough to hold their tail-blades to each others' throats without fear.[2]


  • Ax has stated that he believes he and Tobias are Shorms.[3]
  • Male tail-blades tend to be large and sharp. Conversely, female tail-blades are generally shorter and blunter, described to be "more like a scalpel".
