My parents named me “Matthew.” It’s a good name, a reasonable name that places no undue burden on me. If I was a girl I was going to be “Christine.” Also good.
What if my parents had named me “Deathwing,” though? If my name were Deathwing Sakey and I turned out as I have – as a mild-mannered games industry consultant and user of unnecessarily long sentences – would I be… complete? Shouldn’t I be burninating the countryside with a name like that? There’s a lot in a name.
There’s a dragon named Deathwing in World of Warcraft’s upcoming expansion Cataclysm. And he lived up to his name, as evidenced by this new trailer. You can see how below!
But I’ve got some questions. Are we just talking one of the wings here? Or both? A dragon with only one deathwing would be kind of lopsided.
Also, what were Deathwing’s parents’ names? I’m guessing not “Puff,” that’s for sure. When Deathwing was a baby dragon did they make any effort to raise him right? Did Mrs. Deathwing tell her child that he was free to pursue any career and she would still love him, even though his name suggests a certain amount of death, on wings? Or was he pushed into this deathwinging?
Kinda makes you feel sorry for him, really. Parents shouldn’t pressure their children to be doctors or soldiers or bringers of ruin like that.
