Harmonia Nectere Passus derives from the Latin word "harmonia", meaning "harmony", the Latin word "nectere" which means "to tie, bind", and the Latin term "passus" meaning "step, pace", which came from "pati" meaning "suffer, allow, undergo". Effectively, the entire phrase comes out to mean "Allow(ing) to bind the harmony." Basically, binding the rift between the sister Vanishing Cabinets.
