My two new favorite NPCs in World of Warcraft are Sky Captain Swayze and Ka’anu Reevs of the Kor’kron Air Command. In the past, I have been very vocal about my disdain for “lazy NPCs” design in which a clever name that just replaces letters or flat-out names the NPC after the pop culture reference is created for content.

Whatever happens to them after that fateful jump and subsequent tentacling, I hope they survive. I hope they live on. In the name of freedom. I want Sky Captain Swayze and Ka’anu Reevs to be surfing off the shore of Pandaria for years to come.
