** However, in the [[WordOfGod Norwegian version of the game]] his name is "Ravn", which does mean raven. His in-game model also more closely resembles a raven than a crow. The reason for [[Woolseyism the change to "Crow" in the English translation]] could be that "Raven" sounds a little too sophisticated for him, whereas "Crow" falls in nicely with "crude" and "crass", and works better as a nickname.

* DubNameChange: His name was rendered "Kruk" in the Polish version of the game and, while it does seem to look kind of similar to the original, is in fact the name of another popular bird, the raven. The proper Polish translation of the term "Crow" would in fact be "Wrona", which is feminine (and thus not really that fitting a male character) and just happens to be possibly one of the last names in the language you would ever associate with a positive character.
** And thus the translators set a trap for themselves in the sequel, in which April Ryan is commonly known in the resistance as the "Raven" of all birds. How did they solve it? They had her nickname changed into "Raven-haired". The whole mess somehow works to the game's advantage as Polish-speaking gamers may wonder whether there is some link between the way she was named by her fellow rebels and Crow himself.

Like April, Brian is a denizen of Stark that has journeyed to Arcadia, but unlike April he is not a Shifter so he can't return home. In the original game he lived in his seaside home in Marcuria where he languished his days away with drink. After aiding April on her quest, Brian decided to turn his life around and leave Marcuria to explore the rest of Arcadia.
