Sure i understand...like with the 2 Gaus. In this case there wouldn't be any confusion,since they are both totally different starts,and they belong to a different timeline anyway. But having 2 characters with the same name AND the same star,would lead into confusion imo

- What shall we name our Chikou star in this game?
- Dunno. What was he called in the last game?
- Yeah, that'll do.
- Are you sure...? Suikodn 2's Gordon was a drab looking old merchant and this guy's a sharply dressed ponce.
btw,i found this. Maybe the name "Gordon" might be a reference to this particular real-life merchant:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Gordon_(merchant
)John Gordon (c. 1710–1778) was a Loyalist British merchant and trader of Scottish origin who lived in South Carolina for many years. He settled in Charles Town about 1760, and from 1759 to 1773 he was a major exporter of deerskins supplied by Native American hunters. Gordon also participated in the transatlantic slave trade, but was not a major importer of captive Africans.
John Gordon did business in Charles Town and Savannah, as well as in British East Florida. The regional network of Scottish traders headed by Gordon in Charles Town, and the brothers John and James Graham in Savannah, served as a liaison between government officials (many of them fellow Scots to whom they were connected politically) and the Indian tribes, primarily the Creeks. Gordon also underwrote the mercantile activities of George Galphin, the wealthiest Indian trader in the Southeast, whose trading firm was predominant in the tribal towns of the Chattahoochee Valley and in Coweta.
