*** Look, IF we assume these people are Human-like beings on an alien world, the chances of them having names with origins tied to human history, which all surnames are, is so insane it almost bears no effort to even consider it. More over, as the above post said, IF we assume this is alternate Earth the very existence of the Horde makes that incredibly unlikely--even if we go with the in-universe implication that we "made" the Locusts somehow, none of it makes sense with regard to their religion, the fact the Locust have their own language, or why no one ever saw the things before. Frankly the Lambent are a far more pressing question. Apparently touching the stuff will cause you to play act the end of Akira, yet humans never realized this when we evolved on the planet...why again? No offense, but the only logical explanation for any of this is that Sera was a colony of Earth at some incredibly distant point in the future, and they can no longer leave or contact home. This makes even more sense when you realize they had TWO world wars, one nuclear no less (Armageddon War or the like I forget the name exactly but it's clear from the description it was nuclear) which almost led to humanity's extinction on Sera. The most likely scenario is that during the endless wars the colonists lost the ability to leave, or call for help. Whatever government exists off-world may have assumed they all died. That's not all head canon: the Armageddon War did happen, so did the Pendulum Wars, both were so devastating they eclipse even the pair of world wars we had and one of them is explicitly stated to have brought mankind to extinction's doorstep; the Lambent and Locusts are clearly sentient and yet have no place in human history on Sera or otherwise; the flora and fauna of the planet don't fit in to any we've ever known or even would imagine (unless we discovered a race of anti-gravity octopi and no one told the public) so logic dictates we're looking at a world that is at least outside of our solar system.

** In the "105 Questions and Answers about Gears of War 4" video, Rod Fergusson said that the Carmine dynasty was not dead, so it's very likely that he will show up at some point.

*** There is also worth noting that Sera has different ethics from modern day Earth. What Dom saw was a woman who was broken beyond belief. He saw first hand that someone like Tai was DrivenToSuicide as a result of the 'processing'. Maria, a civilian, would have been far worse.

Not to mention that she was [[FateWorseThanDeath lobotomized]], quite sloppily due to the way the Locust handle it. As such, she wasn't even her, literally just a walking sack of meat. Dom's action was purely a MercyKill, no matter how much he didn't like the idea of it.

** Well, they're making a fourth one, so we might see the fourth Carmine after all.

**** FridgeBrilliance: It didn't have to be Dizzy. The Locust had ''many'' prisoners, and evidence suggests that capturing humans is not actually new behavior for them. [[spoiler: For instance, Dom's wife had been missing for years before the events Gears of War 2, and she was malnourished to the point of skin and bones in addition to being tortured into insanity.]]
