The titular Gale is finally mentioned! The Earth phrase "godspeed" actually refers to the Middle English 'spede', which means 'success'. 'Gale speed', on the other hand, is a Dusk idiom that literally means "travel fast like the wind."
On the more meta side of things, I'm changing my update day to Wednesday. Good news, that means a sooner update this week :D.
Thanks for reading and see you next Wednesday!
