In rereading the latest issue of Dawn of the Jedi, something hit me that should have hit me earlier. Why is it that the Tythans and the Rakata both use Aurebesh? Looking it up on Wookieepedia, it looks like the pre-DOTJ conception was that Aurebesh came from the Rakatan alphabet. Which makes a bit of sense from DOTJ - but only a bit, since DOTJ #1 is clearly supposed to be the first contact between the Tythan polyglot culture and the Infinite Empire. If anything, it seems to me that the Tythans at least got introduced to Aurebesh by the Tho Yor or some sort of teacherbots inside them, since it doesn't make sense for all those species to know the same alphabet before. That just seems common sense to me. And if that is the case, then what's a lot more interesting is - wouldn't that mean the Rakata would have some sort of cultural descent from the Tho Yor or their creators, also? Since I don't see a species that advanced (as the TY) basing their alphabet on comparative primitives. I know the Essential Atlas implies the Rakata co-existed with the Celestials for a time, seeing as it was the latter decline that allowed the former to expand. So...more evidence not only that the Tho Yor are created by the Celestials (and therefore linked to Mortis) but also that the Rakata based their culture in at least some part from them? And more interesting...evidence that Aurebesh is some sort of "divine script" that originated with the SW version of the gods? Incidentally, Xesh and the Tythans seem to understand each other just fine, while the Rakatans and their droids from KOTOR definitely speak a different language...Although I guess there could have been a linguistic shift in the Infinite Empire in its last few centuries.
