What does this rebus, drawn with pretzels, say? (This is what happens when I get bored with pretzels on the table... ;P)

Note: The 'scheduled series' mentioned is this. It still needs to be solved! Finally solved by @randal'thor! :D

Overall picture:


Individual pictures:




Note: That black dot in the second one is not important.

    $\begingroup$ @LukasRotter With Zeus, you're on the right track. It's not Zeus, though, but it's related to that kinda thing. $\endgroup$ – Mithical Aug 20 '16 at 19:29

    $\begingroup$ Do we need a pretzels-tag now? ;c) @Mithrandir Be careful, or your name is becoming 'cat' soon... $\endgroup$ – BmyGuest Aug 22 '16 at 8:51

The first panel shows

a god and a small human, therefore the panel stands for myth.

The second panel shows

a running human, therefore the panel stands for run. However the backwards pointing indicates that the word should be in past tense, so the panel ultimately stands for ran. (Thanks to @CWoods)

The third panel shows

a deer


say the three words out loud and you'll have the final solution: Mithrandir

    $\begingroup$ Very nice, seems like the right answer. It seems that maybe there is an arrow in the second panel (since the guy seems to have two arms in front of him), so maybe the backwards arrow indicates the word should be in past tense? $\endgroup$ – C. Woods Aug 20 '16 at 20:58
  • $\begingroup$ Ah, ok. Wasn't sure about the proper pronounciation, as I'm not a native speaker. I'll add it to the answer. $\endgroup$ – Christoph Aug 20 '16 at 20:59
  • $\begingroup$ Was confused what the answer meant until I looked at the poster's username. $\endgroup$ – haykam Aug 31 '16 at 0:11
