Yaeko as the princess

  • It's a little early to say with any certainty that Yaeko (not Yeoko), the swordsmith's daughter, is the princess from the Kensei legend. Hiro sure thinks so, but then again Hiro thought Kensei was Japanese. I think we should be careful about assuming that the story will play out the way Hiro has heard it for now.--Hardvice (talk) 00:02, 25 September 2007 (EDT)
    • Absolutely agree. If there's been any one message this summer, it's that things are not always as they seem on Heroes. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:35, 25 September 2007 (EDT)
      • Adam/Kensei says, "White Beard offered me anything I wanted to capture Hiro. I asked for half the country. And for you ... as my princess." (Out of Time) --Ice Vision (talk) 18:02, 12 January 2008 (EST)

Reference vs Character

I noticed that this page is a character page, but the Dragon of Kiso Mountain is a reference. Neither were portrayed by anyone, and refer to the Kensei legend versus actual events. So, should both be characters or references? --Bob (talk) 17:53, 12 January 2008 (EST)

  • I don't have an answer to your question since I don't have a preference for which ones they are. However, they should both be the same...especially since they came from the same story. Another one who falls under this category is St. Joan--she's kind of a character, kind of a reference. Then we have Uluru, who has been sitting quietly over in Artwork. Some kind of restructuring should be done. But I like Uluru in Artwork, so maybe he should get two categories? ... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:59, 12 January 2008 (EST)
    • I'd say that Uluru and St. Joan should stay in Artwork since they're comic book characters, but I'd personally put the Princess and the Dragon as references since they're legends. I know there's the tapestry that depicts both, but would one compare King Arthur to Professor X? So I'd keep Uluru and St. Joan as artwork since they're comic book characters, and Princess and the Dragon as references (since no one portrayed them). I'd even want to keep Kensei with the Dragon and Princess since he's legend, but he's portrayed by three people, so I don't know about that.--Bob (talk) 18:09, 12 January 2008 (EST)
      • Maybe we need a new category for legends....or something. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:21, 12 January 2008 (EST)
        • Not a bad idea. I'm stumped for a name that covers all of the possible characters (Uluru, St. Joan, Princess, Dragon--and maybe Kensei). They're not really all "legends", and they're not really all "fictional". They're less "real" than "unseen" implies, so they don't belong there, either. Hmmm.--Hardvice (talk) 18:55, 12 January 2008 (EST)
          • I would call them mythical characters, but that's only because "myth" is a cool word... --Ice Vision (talk) 19:24, 12 January 2008 (EST)
            • Something with more than just one word might work. Something like "Category:Folklore and Legends", or "Category:Myths and Stories". We might also want to consider adding Cúchulainn to that category, then, unless we want to restrict it to things that exist only in Heroes. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:48, 12 January 2008 (EST)
              • I like the idea of a new category. I think that "literary and legendary characters" would cover comic book characters as well as the legend and folklore characters. This should cover the Voodoo thing in "Crossroads".--Bob (talk) 19:55, 12 January 2008 (EST)
                • I like "Literary and Legendary Characters" quite a lot. It fits well, and we can move Cuhulainn and whatever else seems to fit in easily.--Hardvice (talk) 20:21, 12 January 2008 (EST)
