This game has rich mythological roots, Coming from all over mythology- Arthurian, welsh, Scottish folklore, greek, and many more. Read below to discover why and how each character got their names.
The history behind the names.
Arthurian mythology- in this mythology Arthur serves as the squire to Sir. Kay. Hence the squire, Arthur.
Merlin refers to the old magician in arthurian mythology.
Perceval as one of arthur's knights, hence, the knight: percival.
In scottish history, the name blaire would refer to: feild of battle, that's why the evil sorceress is name blair. She's cunning, brave and decietful.
In greek mythology, there is a great 3-headed dog named cerberus who is also known as, the hound of hades, which guards the entrance to the underworld. A guard dog, How fitting for the firewolf that blair keeps as a servant and pet.
In middle english, Crane means thin legs and graceful wings, how ironic for this clumsey creature.
In old norse, the name spark, or sparkr was usually given to a particular lively character. It could also mean son of.
And last: Gwyndion. The name Gwydion (which should more properly be spelled Gwyddien in Modern Welsh, as can be adduced from its Old Welsh form Guidgen; cognate with Old Irish Fidgen) may be interpreted as "Born of Trees".
As you can see, the names in this game were all chosen for reasons that I must have saw important. They each describe his/her bearer's character and veiws, and some of them just seemed so fitting. :)
