In this series I did something special with the names of the characters: I used names (or similar names) of students whom I would like to remember in days gone by. When I pick up the books in 10, 20, maybe even 30 years time, I can read them and remember fond memories of them all. It'll kind of be a time capsule, a catalyst to bring back the lessons we shared.
In Gubacsi Dulu, I used only one particular group and was able to name all the characters with theirs, except for the 'villain'. In Radnoti X (and Farkas Alpha) I used those in other groups.
Usually I try to follow Dickens with his nomenclature, naming characters to show the inner workings of those characters. I guess this is slightly the opposite, as these characters are NOTHING like the real students, BUT I always had them in mind to influence me... what would they do if they were a little more evil and were in this situation? Etc. Etc.
So, if you'd like to read on in the adventure, please come and pre-order!
