There is a lot of power in names.
If you hold someone’s full name you gain a great deal of knowledge about them. There is what they choose to call themselves, how they perceive their own existence, set against and alongside what others call them and have called them.
Raviera Palmero is a mix of two names. My own, real life, one and that of a character from the seminal cyberpunk novel Neuromancer, by William Gibson; the novel is a dystopian work, following the activities of a previously disabled hacker called Henry Case.
“In Istanbul, the team recruits Peter Riviera, an artist, thief, and drug addict who is able to project detailed holographic illusions with the aid of sophisticated cybernetic implants. Although Riviera is a sociopath, Armitage coerces him into joining the team.”
Riviera has a fondness for the gaudy and makes regular use of his projection abilities to inspire fear in others, as well as perform shows. He has a thirst for the mortally dangerous drug combination known as a ‘speedball’.
He also has an amazing name.
