Trivia / Leviathan

The Scott Westerfeld novel

  • Ascended Fanon: Newkirk's full name was suggested to Scott-La by a fan.
  • I Knew It: chapters 78 and 80 of the fanfic collection Quite Peculiar made up a two-part story arc called "Fit to Print". They were uploaded just weeks before the release of Goliath, and made a spot-on prediction on how Alek learns about Deryn's gender in the book: by reading a newspaper article about her father's accident.
  • Word of God
    • Alek and Deryn live happily ever after.
    • Lilit was lying about being "just curious." She was actually in love with Deryn.
    • Also, Newkirk's full name is Eugene William Newkirk. Poor guy.
  • Word of Gay: Westerfeld confirmed Lillit would be considered "either a lesbian or bisexual today" (though he didn't say which)

Leviathan The Band

  • Creator Breakdown: Jef losing his girlfriend in 2006 caused some immense problems for him, resulting with the heavily dark Massive Conspiracy Against All Life.
    • Even more was her death lead to the demise of Jef's project Lurker of Chalice.
  • Doing It for the Art: Jef does Leviathan because he just loves making music. His Tattoo work is also an example of that.
  • Name's the Same: A LOT of bands are called Leviathan. Most just associate the project with Jef or just saying they're from America.
  • Reclusive Artist: Jef is a private individual, and most of the time people only encounter him if they go to get tattoos. Joked around in the "One Man Metal" documentary that they couldn't find him at first.
  • Jef was a pretty well known skateboarder in the Oakland area back during the 1980's, with a photo of him even appearing on the cover of Skate or Die 2 for the NES.
