Notes[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Sogolon's original skin tone.
  • The phrases "succeed where a less fantastic man would fail", "Impossible deeds are my daily fare", and "one blow and goodbye" in Sogolon's dialogue all closely resemble lines in the song "C'est Moi", sung by the Lancelot character in the musical Camelot.
  • The phrase "Nobility means never having to say you're sorry" closely resembles the famous quote "Love means never having to say you're sorry" from the movie and book "Love Story".
  • The idle quote "I speak to Balthazar often in my prayers. Funny, he never mentioned you." is a reference to the movie Ladyhawke.
  • The origin of this name comes from West Africa, an old Prince named Sundiata Keita - founder of the Mali Empire. The prince was also referred to as Sogolon Djata where the name Sogolon was taken from his mother, Sogolon Kedhou.
  • In the Nightfall World Preview Event and for a week after release, Sogolon's character model was pale in skin color. In the update closing the Halloween Event, his character model's skin color was changed to a darker tone.
