Make Boss Subtitles for your characters.:

Eye'm the cutest!
Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Test your creativity and understanding of your works' characters by making Boss Subtitles for them. (Japanese kanji/katakana translation is optional)

Interpretations of each title are up for speculation as for what they may mean.

I'll begin with a number of mine from Endless Conflict.

Lost Child Turned Samurai
Mathias "Mat" Watkins

Unbreakable Blades Of Friendship
Tenchi Yamanaka

Mysterious, Unapproachable Sniper
Daniel

Guiding Captain In The Storm
Admiral Mei Lin

Healing Hands Of Love
Samantha Watkins

Father Of Fine Steel
Master Matsui Yamanaka

The Fiery Daughter of Rio Azl
Jessebelle "Jessie" Marietta Noland

Swordsman Living In Another's Shadow
Anzan

Bannerless Warrior
Boren

Drunken Masters Of Demolition
Sasha and Viktor Ivanov

Queen In A Queenless Society/Wandering Regretful Mother
Mistress Bellah

The People's Father
Swordmaster Khornan

Boisterous, Persistent Commander
Colonel Barry Smith

Lovestruck Sniper
Elensa the Sniper  *

An Ordinary Pilot
Colonel Roy Jansen

Passionate Flame Of War
Nees the Crimson Blade  *

The Girl Enamored With The Sea
"Captain" Sera  *

Ghost Of The Past
Mikhail Voronov  *

The Long-Grieving Student
Supreme Commander Atrexis  *

The Vengeful Judge
Judicator Jornal

I'll probably think of more in time, now add some of yours!

What if you don't want to give out the names of your characters?
If people learned from their mistakes, there wouldn't be this thing called bad habits.

Funny, I was just thinking about making some of these for my own characters. Well, let's see where I stand...

Guts Swordsman

Deias Landrover

Gentle Monk

Arden Landrover

Iron Man of the East

Dodge "Sully" Sullivan

Beauty of the Skies

Zera the Thunderbird

Wild Dancer

Gabriel Cooper

Man of Science

Cyrus D. Fleetwood

Fangs of the Dragon

Kale Integra

Hot-Blooded Soldier

Miri Mustang

That's it for the heroes. I don't have any for the enemies (yet), so I'll leave this post as-is. Also, fun fact: everyone in the story has the name of a car model/brand in their names.

Ooh, fun!

In the "story I'll probably never publish":

Kyle: Stunted Healer

Gale: Scholar of Magic

Rose: Winter Wolf

Frederick: Clever Talker

In another story that actually has a chance (tentatively titled The Nature of Ice):

Erin Donovan: The Realist (later, The Knight)

Shannon O'Connor: The Idealist (later, The Poisoner)

Mia Manning: The Sadist (later, The Beast)

Aria: The Fatalist (later, The General)

Yes, it is intentional that three out of four characters in the latter story wind up very different from how they start out.

(BTW, I'm disappointed that the lack of a bluelink means I can't sum up Aria's eventual self as a Bald Black Leader Girl.)

Exitus Acta Probat
One for all of the seven Demonic Overlords (most don't actually have names yet). They'd make pretty good videogame endbosses.

Lord of the Burning Blade (lord Maladath): The iron-fisted overlord.

Lady of the Annihilation Edges (lady Shianamira): The lady of war.

Lady of the Black Hand (lady Naxana): Mistress of the blades.

Lord of the Crimson Wand (lord Kurzan): The mechanical lich.

Lord of the Skull Bulwark: The immovable force.

Lord of the Bright Staff: The master of deceit.

Lady of the Bloody Spear: The immortal hunger.

Plus Bonus Boss!

The Grand Hierarch of Dis: True ruler of the Netherworld.

Since I'm doing this, I might aswell include the main villain in LHP, even if he has no connection to the Demon Lords.

Herald of the Outer Gods: Doom has come.

Exitus Acta Probat
Cast of LHP:

Howard Waite: Wizard of Rock

Zaran's Unknown Rival (doesn't have a name yet): Zaran's rival (self-proclamed).

Professor John Armitage: Expert of esoteric lore.

The Herald (first appearance): ???

Edit: Might aswell add the non-Zaran, non-Lord M recurring characters from Zaran's spinoff comic.

The Chancellor: Probably evil.

Legionnaire Concripts: Mooks.

Legionnaires: Slightly better Mooks.
