Some notes on the names: Jake had a Dutch name that happened to fit him. Both his original name (Jaap) and his English name are abbreviations of "Jakob" in the real world but bastardisations of his Gnomian name Dzhalkulpturgl (and spelling variants thereof) in the world of RoCR. Ragnarok wasn't directly named after the Norse myth of the twilight of the Gods: I got her name from a poster advertising a feminist theatre group.
Tamlin was named after the character from the traditional ballad found in Child's Ballads and revived by Fairport Convention on their Liege and Lief album. Atra's name was just a random combination of sounds. I try not to give characters names that hint at their personalities but I went a bit too far in the opposite direction with that one.
