Twinsen Twinsen Heritage, Last Names, History, Ect.

I am still sort of new here on the MBN, and I have been thinking about this for years. Maybe it has already been discussed, but I want to bring it up in case it has not already. I have always wondered, is there anything that mentions about Twinsen's last name? In AITD, the Characters have last names, even in Time Commando. I know that Twinsen has a relative, the only one I know is an Old Ancestor of his named (Forgive me if I mispell his name) Hegessippe. Does Twinsen have an actual religion or race? I know that he is a Quetch, that is a species. I know that he believes in Sendell, and prophesies about her. What kind of race could he be though? He looks close to a Japanese or Chinese Person to me, maybe even Korean. I only think that because he has a ponytail (So do most of the other Quetches, I know), I also know that in LBA1 he had those sort of "Asian Eyes". The Model of him from Gameplay, not the FLA Movies. There is plenty more questions I would like to ask, but I will not put anymore for now (Because there is way too many). And if any of you Quetches know any other information, I would love to hear it.

Thank you, and please share some information.

I don't think we are given any other name than Twinsen... Good question.

Citadale island resembles Italy. But that would not mean inside the story he has Italian nationality. After all, he is not from this planet even.

We do know some characters have surnames like Jerome Baldino, but i don't think most twinsunians do have a second name. Oh I forgot Dr. FunFrock, the Dr. title makes FunFrock his surname in the context it is used.

Wow, thanks! I never knew it resembled Italy! I'm guessing it should though because LBA was created by Frederick and Italy is nearby Paris in France.

Yeah, that is true. It seems strange to me though that they don't mention certain names sometimes though. Anyways, thanks!

I'm just trying to say that the foregoing statement ("Italy is nearby Paris in France") sounds shocking for someone, who studies geography.

Besides, I can't understand why you mentioned Paris?
Most of the development of both LBAs took place in Lyon.

What a discussion
Italy is nowhere near Paris, but isn't there an island looking like Great Britain ?

As we speak about resemblances, I'd say that the Desert Island looks like Tunisia...

Sorry, I got a bit confused. I am still in school. I am guessing I am one of the youngest people on the MBN though. I am in my last year of Middle School and my brithday is next month in May. I am going to turn 15!

I don't know what place Tunisia is, or what it looks like. But I believe you.

Oh, don't be sorry!
And if geography is not your favourite subject, don't force yourself to learn it diligently, because it doesn't make sense (you'll forget everything with the speed of light anyway ). Try to focus on things you really like... That's what I'm trying to do!

I don't think you can find a map with informations of that kind ("Lyon - yes, that's where LBA was made!"). That's unfortunate... Maybe someday I'll create such map!

I don't think it has some particular meaning (even though I don't know Arabic). It's just a name of a village, best known for underground houses of Berbers, and for being a set for some Star Wars scenes...

One thing i want to know about is the temple of buu, it's so clear in LBA1 you are implied to have been in the temple palace through out, but with no clear indication where the ventilation shaft connects to the temple. In the second game the temple room you first came into with the same ventialtion shaft leading to the same area it did in the first game, is now in the mountain with the northern exit leading to ride that gose around the temple. Tbh I really don't get the paradox that is buu.

Yeah, they love Jeu le boules in Tunisia.
Must say the overall shape is less convincing but I am thinking France still.
There was a thread on this. But as I recall there was no consensus on the issue.
