  • According to the Wachowskis, the secret is in the name, so:

    Neo
    Anagram of "One", also means "new".

    Trinity
    In most Christian faiths, the union of three divine persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in one God.

    Morpheus
    In Greek mythology, Morpheus was one form of the god of dreams (the other being Oneiros). His job was to fashion dreams, as the gods desired them to be sent to men. In this task he was assisted by Icelus, who fashioned those dreams that had all the appearance of reality, by Phobetor, the author of alarming dreams, and Phantasus, who tricked sleepers with innumerable and strange phenomena. But we find Morpheus also represented in the capacity of a sort of watchman and guardian of dreams, as Aeolus was of the winds.

    Nebuchadnezzar (Hovership)
    King Nebuchadnezzar delivered Babylon from its dependence on Assyria and laid Nineveh in ruins. He was the greatest and most powerful of all the Babylonian kings.

    Niobe
    In Greek mythology, Niobe was the daughter of Tantalus and wife of Amphion, the king of Thebes. She was contemptuous of the goddess Leto for having produced only two children, Apollo and Artemis. She died of grief when her own 12 offspring were killed by them in revenge, and was changed to stone by Zeus.

    Persephone
    Persephone was a Greek goddess. She was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. Hades obtained sanction from Zeus to carry her off by force and marry her. Was abducted by Hades but rescued by her mother and thereafter spent six months of the year on earth and six months in the underworld.

    Merovingian (The French fella)
    A ruling dynasty of one of the Germanic tribes of the Rhine region in the early Christian era, especially one of the Salian Franks who conquered Gaul about A.D. 500 and established an extensive empire that reached its greatest power in the ninth century.

    Seraph (The glowing Kung Foo dude)
    A celestial being having three pairs of wings.

    Lazarus
    In the New Testament, the brother of Mary and Martha.

    Kain (Operator on the Nebuchadnezzar)
    Kain and Abel were Adam's (As in Adam and Eve) sons. There was a bit of a reference of Zee mentioning that Dozer was her brother, and that she didn't want to loose Kain also. May or may not be pertinent.

  • didnt Nebuchadnezzar end up eating grass like a cow?

    I thought the Kain in the bible was spelt 'Cain'? Cain murdered his brother didn't he?

    Thanks for the run down W - There's something not right about that picture though....
