I picked the name while skimming my mp3's for inspiration. Tangency is the name of a track from the Star Ocean: The Second Story OST [which I love] - but it wasn't simple love that spurred this. I went and looked up the word and found this:
1. n. - The condition of being tangent.
2. n. - The quality or state of being tangent; a contact or touching.
3. n 1: contact at a single point or along a line 2: a junction where things (as two electrical conductors) touch or are in physical contact; "they forget to solder the contacts"
Well, this lead me to look up tangent, which was mentioned in the first meaning and got:
1. Making contact at a single point or along a line; touching but not intersecting.
This is good - Ajora touches the story, but does intersect at the end. And in some ways, Ajora seems irrelevant - until the end. There WAS more, however.
n. 3. A sudden digression or change of course.
If I recall correctly, Ajora is the cause of a shift of focus in the game as we close in on the end and his resurrection from the war to that. That, and yes, it sounded nice. No one sid I had to make sense.
v 2.0 :: Renegade - Lyrics © Styx - from the 1978 album Pieces of Eight [track 8]. If you like the song, please buy the album. :P Renegade fits Ajora fairly well for his life, having been on the run near the end as a wanted man by the Yudoran Empire and all. Plus in the end there's Tommy Shaw singing "I don't want to go, no no..." which just so struck me as Ajora - after all, he did want to be resurrected.

v 1.0 :: Alarum - Lyrics © The Tea Party - from the 1997 album Transmission [track 5]. If you like the song, please buy the album. :P Its worth the import price if you're not in Canada. And with a moment of inspiration and thought ... I realize how very, very perfect the title is for the site; alarum is basically alarm, or a mechanism which triggers it. I really must stop doing stuff like that, and picking things that are perfect for things and in hindsight finding it as such.
