    And race/gender since, y'know, no one else can see 'em.

    Mine are--

    Saraswati (midlander female, Hyur)

    &

    Talon (seeker of the sun male, Mi'qote)

    Saraswati is the wife of Brahma in the Hindu religion, and

    Talon (well, "Talan") is the stage name of my go-go dancer friend.

    Sara is the gentle personality, and Talon is independent...

    That said, Talon is one sassy remark away from being jobless.

    Of course, he can't help it; he was drawn that way!

    I've got a Dunesfolk Lalafell named Mercutio, and a Seawolf Roegadyn named Benvolio. For no other reason than I think the names are great for merchants, and I've really bad at making up names.

    I played a game called Forsaken World where it was an option not to mention your player character's name when selling on auction house. It finally occurred to me the other day when I was looking at my retainer's name on the auction house that was the reason. So crafters could sell anonymously if they wished. Reason a crafter would want that is to avoid /tell harassment to make an item - assuming they're good crafters - from hundreds of persistent players. I guess this is a problem in some situations.

    I can't remember my retainer's name but I want to post her pic some day. :D

    Idunno, 'cause the creator of an item (if the item is gear) is listed on the item's description, so in many cases, buyers do know who made what they're wearing. However, I do like the anonymity when I've shamefully under cut somebody or put up a vender item, lol

    Happens to be the face I pulled when I saw your new signature.

    Back on topic, my retainer is named Moras, after Sarah Moras, a badass women's MMA fighter.

    I award a gold star to Brahma because that was a good use of video embedding, and also because Sophie Ellis-Bextor is a major guilty pleasure of mine. Especially that song.
