Post [Resource] Visual Index of the Loroi
I have made a visual index of the Loroi.

It is currently sub-categorized into title characters, significant supporting characters, named background characters, and unnamed background characters. When assigning orders, I started at the top-leftmost panel and work my way right from the left side.

It is a resource for anyone for whom such a thing might be useful. It is currently set to "Anyone may comment," which will, in addition to allowing side-of-page comments, allow viewers to suggest edits directly to the page.

Please be cautious when resting your cursor on the page, as you will be in edit suggestion mode, and any keystrokes will be entered, which means they'll hit my email inbox. By all means, if someone wants to add something useful/interesting to the doc, go right ahead and I'll probably approve it; especially if you can attach names to the unnamed crew! Go ahead and shuffle them up to the named category if you can attach a name to them.

Here's my organizational list, if anyone wants to see a list of pages with the Loroi that appear in them.

The Green head and the Brown-bob Doranzers don't have canonical names. I initially thought that the Green headed one was Desire but she isn't.

Craaaap. Her uniform trim is the right color.

She is the right color but their visual design is homage to other webcomic characters:

The red haired Listel on the bridge is called Antimon, by the way.

Source?

Curious because I hounded everything to make sure that she didn't have a name.

Unclear. Judging by the search, except in his fic doesn't mention nowhere else.

Arioch has named all these characters? I don't recall all of them in the comic or Insider. Are parts of the fan-fics considered "canon" or has Arioch weighed in on them? I haven't read the fan-fics, so I don't know, and I admit he may have mentioned names in the forum and I just forgot.

Not all. Some names can be found in the characters art in the insider-section. And part of the characters was named in this thread when asked Jim about it. However, nameless extras enough, but I think, fanfic writers is mostly corrected.

Most of the names he's referring are things I said in the forums in response to questions about certain characters in the comic.

This may raise more questions than it answers, but here is a partial list of named characters from my notes:

Spoiler: show

When perusing this list consider the following:

  • These are from my notes rather than a formal part of the Insider, so consider this information incomplete and subject to change.
  • I don't think there are any major spoilers in here, but it does reference characters and events that haven't yet appeared in the comic, so use care when discussing the contents, and don't bother asking questions I can't answer.
  • Names in quotation marks are placeholder names rather than real names.

I indeed asked Arioch that before: Link
But I have to admit that I made a misstake. She is called Antimony, not Antimon. Thanks for the correction.
The explanation for this is simpel: I have written the rough draft of the story in German and then translated and expanded it into the full English version. Somehow stupid me ended up leaving her translated German name in the English version. Will correct that as soon as I can. Sorry for that error.

@Arioch:
Thanks for that list! Amazing how much efford you put into that story!
Just on a sidenote: Is Antimony indeed younger than Beryl and will we see her again in the comic?

Holy shit, hivemind - you had a Torrai Sorimi whose name was Opal too?
That's freaky. I swear I've never seen this spreadsheet before. I thought I was being clever and inventing someone from whole cloth.
... Also, you named the ship Beryl was born on the same thing I named another Listel. Freaky. I'm officially frightened now.

Anyway, lesse... Gonna need to figure out who on here corresponds to someone I have listed incorrectly/have unnamed.

That's going to be helpful. I'm also just going to co-opt your "name in parenthesis" method for provisional/placeholder names.

Some questions I think you can answer, then (mostly):
  • Are Desire and "Raven" definitely the medics who were present when Alex woke up? ("Raven" being the one with the brown sci-fi bob?)
  • Is "Firefly" the 'satchel gofer' who gave Beryl a large satchel and saw the group onto Highland-7 but does not appear to have boarded with them?
  • Amethyst is the guard outside the security airlock that Beryl and Fireblade escort Alex through, right?
  • What is the color-coding on that table? Is it based on location?
  • Does Reed appear in the Ch1 brig exit, or just in Ch2?
  • The table lists Talon's position as NAV1. Does that means she has capital warship piloting experience? (You may not be able to answer this one, but Talon is so awesome I've just gotta ask anyway. :) )

It's mainly just internal bookkeeping: character designs need to match up with script references, so you have to have at least a placeholder name for any character that appears more than once.

Antimony is probably a similar age to Beryl, a few months younger. She in the seat that Beryl normally occupies, so I'm not sure how much we'll see of her in the future.

The latter.

Oh crap, I knew I forgot something.

Tthe "bridge gofer" who removes the Historian emissary urn, on Page 65, is that Cloud? It looks a huge lot like her, but the hair just seems a biiiit long, and I'm one of those "realism ensues" types who rationalizes that it's possible for two people who resemble one another to have very similar hairstyles.


[e]Also, I don't believe we've seen Azure or Rubyrod. Is that correct, or am I just derping?
[e2]Desire's name translation, on the table, is listed as (Orin), in parenthesis. What's the significance of that - does that mean the translation is provisional?

If you can't tell that's Cloud, then I feel bad as an artist.

There are lots of characters on the list who haven't yet appeared in the comic. The Summary field should help here.

Please don't feel bad; I'm just being absolutely anal. I was about 90% certain it was Cloud, but I'm the kind of person who will cheerfully violate the One Steve Limit trope when I'm writing in the name of realism, and her hairstyle and hair color are plain enough it's more than conceivable to me that more than one person on the ship could share them.

Hell, I thought "Firefly" was Cloud having restyled her hair while Alex was enjoying Reed's hospitality in the brig, until I realized Cloud boarded the shuttle with Tempo with her old hairstyle.

Yeah, I figured, I was just double- and triple-checking, trying to see if one of them was lurking as like, a 30x30 pixel holo-panel on the bridge of one of the other ships' bridges seen in holo-panel on Tempest's bridge.

Cheers.

[e]The orange dreadlocked gunner sitting to Cobalt's right - is her name Redriver, or Redrill? It appears to be Redriver judging from the Caste titles, but in your table is listed as Redrill. Neither name appears as parts or whole in the Lexicon.

Different translations of the same name. "Rill" is a fancy word for "river."

It goes without saying that a large percentage of these names will never appear in the comic. I have too many characters, but at least I don't require the reader to know who they all are by name.

Oooooooh! That clears that up. I never even knew that, thanks.

[e]Alright, I think the Visual Index is current as of page 112 and has every name and rank I could track down. If a rank has a ? after it, it means I'm uncertain about the rank but giving it my best guess; if it has ??, then I can't even hazard a guess as to rank.
