Prudent, MX. I was just wondering if the name "Eudoant" came from some particular reference. Maybe it's in the pronunciation....."eyou..dowant". As in "No, you don't get outta here!!!!"

Only reference I can come up with for "eudoant" is a page of nonsense words for business names generated by a neural net.

Well, let's break it down. "Eu-" is a prefix that can mean "true" or "good," as in "eudemonia" (roughly: "happiness through living wisely"). "-ant" is a suffix denoting a thing that does a thing, as in "colourant" (dye, which colours things). That just leaves the middle bit. "Do" is a perfectly cromulent word in English, but would be redundant with "ant." However, it's also a word in Latin, meaning "give" or "offer."

Mashing those together into eu-do-ant we get good-offer-er, or to put it another way, "Redeemer."

Which may be appropriate or ironic, depending on exactly how Pandemonium and demons work in this particular cosmology.

thats assuming it's meaningful. for all we know, rick might have pulled it from a giberish generator (it's where i get all of the needs-to-sound-wierd names i use...)

Uh... How do demons work in this universe? It's not really clarified here.

About all we know is that damned souls work in this universe.

Don't think it's reflexive... that would violate the "no human hands" clause.

Fair point.

I've choosen that one for a reason, you know. You live easier when you follow that mentality.

But how do you learn if you don't ask?

There are two ways: You make an assumption, that is plausible but wrong, so the other one corrects it or you just search for the answer yourself.
