Myrese's pet collection is sadly limited...and I always forget to name the new ones. However, my named ones include:
Melie: Araby Fighting-Weasel. A delicate name for a tough animal.
Suki: Cheerful Goldfish. My only companion in my first days in Fallen London. She really did keep Myrese's sanity intact.
Cumin: Dazed Raven Advisor. Because I liked Hugin and Munin, but I only have one raven.
Aikuro: Preening Macaw. A reference to the sparkliest character in Kill la Kill.

In no particular order:

Scuttering Squad: The Baseboard Bruisers
Working Rat: OBrien (as in Chief Miles O'Brien of Star Trek)
Disgraced Rat Bandit Chief: Jack Bauer
Talkative Rat: Albrecht (no story there, just picked it)
Albino Rat: Valkea (I think it means "white" in a Scandinavian language. I don't remember which language.)
Bat With Attitude: Bruce (Wayne, obviously)
Salt Weasel: Kiki (I think that was the weasel from Sluggy Freelance, a webcomic.)
Corresponding Ocelot: Babu (named for Cheryl/Carol's ocelot from the show Archer)
Bifurcated Owl: Stitches
Unfinished Hat: Toothy
Secular Missionary: Loretta (I think because of the scene in Life of Brian where one of the Pythons says they want to be called Loretta "because it's a nice name")
The Woman in Yellow: Lady Hastur
Bandaged Raven: Cawput (as in caw + kaput)
Mystic Raven: Huginn
Devious Raven: should be Muninn, currently is MemPoe (mempo + Poe), maybe will go back to HPoe Lovecrowft someday

I used to have a Preening Macaw named Gaston. It seemed right.

I don't name my "expendable" pets (goldfish, lucky weasels, lizards). The cooldown on my "select name" ability is longer than their expected lifespans.

(I once had an Araby Fighting Weasel named "Lawrence" as well. It honestly seems wrong to name it anything else.)

Saevitia's profile and appearance! [Gone NORTH]

Now playing Esméralda, Saevitia's former helmswoman and moralistic Campaigner; she looks like this.

I'm usually up for RP. Social actions are generally accepted; those with in-character RP invitations are most likely to be reciprocated.

    I apologize for any and all anachronisms. I am too lazy to check some facts if I am sure they are from the 1890s or sometimes think they are.

    Oh, and by the way, I am not polish, I am GERMAN to clarify for heavens sake... tylko po polsku mowie. Um Himmelswillen...

    I've promised to do those one of these days, might as well start with my main the truthseeker

    In no particular order except I finished the raven names more recently:

    Dazed Raven Advisor--Kohahycumest (means "White Crow" or "White Antelope" in Native American Cheyenne
    Fairly-Tame Sorrow Spider--Schritzy (the sound it makes when it scratches across things.)
    Ruthless Henchman--Niles.
    Sulky Bat--Batworth Flappington III (one of the few remaining bats after the Wars of Illusion as well as I and II, so it, plant-fed Cheerful Goldfish {all named "Mr. Bubbles"} and Lucky Weasels often do not get renamed-names. Same with Sold Bats with Attitude.)
    Araby Weasel--William (for the Scottish William Wallace of course. My luck has not always been well, so he may die at the end as well at those fights.)
    Talkative Rattus Faber--Blabber
    Salt Weasel-Weaselford Higgings III (one of my very first pets acquired, and quite noble, yet as exceptionally naïve as its female counterpart Kiki from Sluggy Freelance as theirs was named [yes it was from that] by Saevitia here.)
    Bifurcated Owl--Janus (of course.)
    Hungover Terrier--Barky (what truthseeker called him when he too was hung over and heard the yapping of this dog.)
    Scuttering Squad--The Rat Pack (truth completely innocently called them this even with time events allowing him to sometimes see future things; he never saw the 20th century human them. I on the other hamd, love the meta-reference.)
    Mystic Raven Advisor--Berathraben (from old High German, loosely meaning "bright raven" used both for its appearance and Watchful abilities.)
    Devious Raven Advisor--Finstarraben (again, from Old high German, loosely meaning "dark raven" again, used both for its appearance and its Shadowy abilities.)
    Ravenous Henchman--Insatiable (name should be clear; even Snow Belie has Hedonistic limits compared to this kind of hunger....)
    Revolutionary Firebrand--Code Name: Entropy
    Parabola Kitten--Blacky (hey, he chose the name, not "me!")
    The Woman in Yellow--Eos (named after the "Goddess of the Dawn" as well as the archetype of new beginnings. Seemed appropriate to name her that.)
    That's it for now. Obviously, I may not need others stat-wise, but should I collect the Tiger, I'd name him "Mike" for another infamously tattoo-faced "Mystery-solving" companion. (I've heard rumors he is a live-action and not animated being, but so far, based on legendary reports, I find it hard to believe such a person could really have existed wink )

    Blemmigan tourist: Miggo (as in Mi-Go. Feel free to google that.)
    Parabollan Kitten: Purrball (a play on "Parabola")
    Malevolent Monkey: Apewire (it takes turns going apes__t and haywire)
    Disgraced RF Bandit-Chief: Rippichief (as in Reepicheep, one of the best rodent characters ever, +Chief)
    Rubbery Euphonium: Blowduck
    Starveling Ket: Glitchifer (named after a dearly departed cat of mine, who shared some characteristics with the Starveling)
    Araby Fighting Weasel: Emir Altiz (arabic for "Prince of Ass", as in prince of kicking ass)
    Devious Henchman: Evenjob (the opposite of Oddjob)
    I don't name faction pets, cause i switch them around frequently. And i don't name the nightmare fish because it's less of an individual and more of a sashimi.

    There is a village near me called Evenjob. All this time it never occurred to me that it might be named after the twin brother of a Bond movie henchman. Possibly because it is pronounced EVAN-job. smile

    My companion list is not particularly short but not all of the companions are named.

    So, onto the (named) pet list. And while some of them are more of the companion/henchman type, Lord Hatter considers all of them his pets.


    Two Dazed Raven Advisors – Huginn and Muninn (after Odin’s ravens)

    Wary Raven Advisor – Sir Edgar

    Dreamy Raven Advisor – Sir Allan (after Edgar Allan Poe; yes, should I acquire another Raven I would call it “Sir Poe”)

    Preening Macaw – Narcissus (after the character from Greek mythology because this bird is just that vain)

    Full-Grown Terror Bird – Jubjub (after the Jubjub Bird from Alice in Wonderland)

    Skulky Bat – Herr Fledermaus (“Mr. Bat” in German)

    Cryptographic Chiropteran - Sir Denevér (“Bat” in Hungarian)

    Cheerful Goldfish – Daymare (for the minus 1 nightmares when equipped)

    Rubbery Feline – Felidulhu (felid - a member of the cat family [felidae] + ulhu taken from H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu)

    Starveling Cat – Košmaras (“Nightmare” in Lithuanian)

    Reprehensible Lizard – Sir Niles (I got nothing, it just sounded good)

    Elongated Spindlewolf – Geri (after one of Odin’s wolves)

    Surveilling Spindlewolf – Freki (after Odin’s other wolf)

    Obstinate Tracklayer – Phineas Gage (when I tried to think of something relating to the railroad, the first thing to popped into my mind was Phineas Gage; while he was not a tracklayer but rather the person in charge of the railroad construction crew, it was too darkly good to pass up)

    Impenitent Devil – Mephisto Tsaufian (the description of the Impertinent Devil “He has done (almost) everything at least once” reminded me of the legends about Faust, who wanted to learn everything and after the deal with Mephistopheles did everything he wanted; therefore, “Mephisto” short for Mephistopheles, and “Tsaufian” an anagram of “Faustian”)
