Thinking mythically, I can see why a Gift might ignore the fact that
Yelmalion warriors use spear-and-shield. Circular shields represent the sun.
If the rationale for the gift were based upon some myth from the Great
Darkness, then Yelmalio would not have had a shield at the time, as the sun
was dead and so shields would be no use. Shields are used nowadays because
the Sun is back and can therefore be called upon, but myths can often be
out-of-date and anachronistic.
