X-Jacks    Systems  (Mystical)   (General)

I have never been happy with the way that magical constructs were presented in games.  Admittedly, a large statue stomping the surrounding countryside is an impressive image.  But the logic (or lack thereof) involved has always bothered me.

Patterns in surnames: There are many ways a surname could have evolved over centuries. One possibility is migration. A Roman name may have traveled to France and hence to England where it was later Anglicized. Case in point - the surname Lawrence went from Laurentius (Roman) to Laurent (French) to Lawrence (English) and then to Lowry (Scottish). There is also natural etymological evolution. For example, a Middle English spelling may have evolved to a modern English spelling (e.g. Stiward to Stewart). Where did your character's Surname come from?
