I know I’m just biased but man you will pry Psii’s real name being “Artolo Apemis” from my cold dead fingers
I’m just very fond and attached to the name I came up with because it’s still something I’m a bit proud of in relation to the Captor lineage and it goes like this
SO SOLLUX CAPTOR. In case you aren’t away, his name is basically a nod to “Castor and Pollux” which are a pair of twins from Greek mythology who became the Gemini Constellation
Artolo Apemis is also a nod to twins and Greek mythology. [Art]olo [Ap]emis, when you switch the letters around, are the Greek gods Artemis and Apollo who are another set of twins. Better yet, they’re twins with the opposite themes of one another. Artemis is the God of the hunt and the moon, while Apollo is of the arts and the sun. Opposite duality is the yellowblood jam, so what better twins to name after? It also fits with Psii’s ancestor status. Ancestors are (typically) supposed to be revered and viewed with worship, made out to be greater than their descendents, so it’s fitting that Sollux’s ancestor would have a name based off of literal gods.
Honestly, I preferred it when fandom could make up their own real names for the ancestors instead of just taking the Pre-Scratch troll names and slapping them on there. It seems so much more fun and so much more interesting to see what other people come up with. Not to mention the universe has been reincarnated with entirely different circumstances, lives, people… but you’re telling me that they’ll still for some reason have the same names as another REALITY ago? Bluh!
This is probably just silly griping, but still.
(Also shout out to the Signless I had the honors of playing with in Vatheon who decided that his real name was “Watthe” which will NEVER stop being funny and witty to me)
(This is what I’m talking about, man)
