Considering that I RP as a shining example of a Vice Admiral whose big on diplomacy, and is also a Section 31 agent hiding in plain sight, the name Esclarent embodies my character in his entirety.
(No, I did not mispell Pendragon's name.
No, you didn't.
There is a series that has King Arthur's name as Arthuria (well, technically it's Arturia there, but still...). Of course, they also ran King Arthur through Rule 63, but that's neither here nor there.
