Could one of the sheriffs remove the full protection from this page. It isn't possible to alter it right now. If necessary it could be changed to semi-protected. This way registered users can edit again. Coleon (talk) 16:40, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

Korun Edit

How do we know that his name was Korun? I don't remember anyone saying it.  Blood-dropAlaric SaltzmanTalkContrib 19:37, June 3, 2012 (UTC)

Denis O'Hare said so. Jayden Matthews 19:41, June 3, 2012 (UTC)
Not sure, are there any modern-day translations of the Ancient Celtic language in the world? Supposedly his name means The Raven.


Edit: I searched all over and haven't seen anything suggesting Korun means "Raven". ---Korun is listed on several sites as an alternative spelling of Corvin/Corwin supposedly from Anglo saxon roots but the Old English word is "hraefn"

The attested root in Proto-Celtic is *brano-, the Scottish name Bran means raven. An entry in Gaulish lexicon list 'Boduus'.

I know the writers on this show do not do meticulous background research into Prehistoric Archaeology but there is a big question as to whether or not what the layperson would call a "Celt" and the inhabitants of Romania in the mid 9th century BC are the same group. I would love each character to have a 20 page dossier about their history made and adhered to prior to them uttering a word, but it won't happen. Few people would care what Russell's actual name is, and i doubt that it will ever be revealed.

Grammar Errors Edit

.... "I am three thousand years old" ... from "i will have the sun"


Can someone rewrite "An ancient vampire of almost 3,000 years old"?

It's an incomplete sentence and grammatically incorrect. AntJenkins 22:38, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

If Russell was supposedly born around 850 BC, then why not just have his age as 2,859 or 2,860 years old. To me, "almost 3,000" doesn't sound viable. I'd encourage others to reword this if possible. Jmadd232009 23:33, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

In section "Pre-Season":

Either say "for at least a millennium" if it is a single 1000-year period or "millennia" if it is plural (and supportable).

"countless human civilizations"? Just talk about the ones we know from the material, I bet they are countable...

"decimate" is inaccurate, as it refers to the practice of punishing a Roman legion by killing 1/10th of it (deci-).

"devastate" or "catastrophically depopulate" or something that sounds like the writer knows English, would be better.

"his family's murderer." (Apostrophe and period, please.)

By "Ausberg" you probably mean "Augsberg".


I'm happy to un-protect the article if you'd like to make any grammatical corrections. Also, I should point out that "decimate" in modern-day usage simply means to slaughter in great numbers, and is therefore perfectly acceptable in this context. Jayden Matthews (talk) 06:57, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

FangsEdit

When he was onstage in the wolf bar in the episode "9 Crimes," his fangs seemed to fold backward into his mouth and his incisors slid downward. Is he different because of his age? All the others so far in the series seem to have fangs that extend either from the incisors or in front of them. What do you think?RuneMason1 (talk) 17:37, February 2, 2013 (UTC)
