I think it would be safe to say that Ed is playing closer to his type than he realizes.
Lann Wren is the name I used for my first playthrough of Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic. I was using Farts Buttwhiff as a placeholder name which caused a problem because it was so funny to me I kind of wanted to keep it. Of course Ed would never do that. For a minute I considered giving him a name similar enough that it would make a good insult for him, but eventually decided that I could be stuck with this character for a decade, so I better choose a name I can tolerate seeing for that long.
