A little amusingly, Agent Saenchai Khamsing is named after an actual Muay Thai boxer, whose professional name, per Muay Thai tradition, once incorporated both his own (Saenchai) and that of his sponsor (Somluck Khamsing). Hardly a flattering homage, given Agent Saenchai’s background!
Agent Wu Liang-Zhi’s name, more amusingly, could be translated in Mandarin Chinese as ‘no conscience’, which is hugely ironic given her profession and personality. Of course, the name would very well mean something else, but without the exact pronunciation it’s difficult to tell.
Agent Ann Thophora is, of course, named after the bee genus Anthophora.
Agent Queen Ranavalona IV may be fictional but her ancestor was not.
Agent Ibrahim de la Fuente takes his name from the Fountain (‘fuente’ in Spanish) of Youth he seeks. It’s possible his first name is also a reference to Abraham…
Agent Pierre Delacroix shares his first name with the founder of the Priory of Sion, which he is a member of. Further, his last name is French for ‘of the Cross’, a reference to the conspiracy theory that the Priory protected the secret of the lineal descendants of Christ.
