I was just browsing through my playlist and noticed the song "Lana & Maud" from the Dreamfall soundtrack. However, I can't remember any characters in the TLJ universe named that way. Anyone any ideas?

I can't answer the question with the full facts on hand, but I have a theory...

 

The Dreamfall score uses three tracks by composer Simon Poole: "St. Petersburg", "The Factory" and "Lana & Maud (edit)". However, the composer's name isn't given as Simon Poole for the Lana & Maud track, it's "slipperhero", an alter ego Simon uses on some music sites. My theory would be that this music existed way before Dreamfall, they just decided to use it (as background music for the conversation scene between Emma, Charlie and Zoë) in an edited form (hence the addition "edit"). Its original name, which never had anything to do with Dreamfall, remains.

Nice one. Something for the wiki (when I get back). :)

Tina, compliment for your moving skills, if I ever need to move again, I'll let you know (I have this piano that always causes me a terrible backache).

But anyway, where I thought this was an extremely dumb question, it seems a bit harder to answer in the end. Allthough Vinaoniamaionenoion's (I hope I spelled that correctly) theory sounds plausible. ;)

I think I remember coming across a wiki when I googled this years ago that the twins that attack Zoe are Lana and Maud though this is unverified as it's never explicitly said in the game

Oh, it's in the wiki all right.

 

It is possible that their names are Maud and Lana respectively and the title of the track from the score reffers [sic!] to them.

 

 

A lot of things are "possible".

 

However, Lana and Maud (edit) plays during Zoë's meetup with Charlie and Emma in the Fringe... no mention of the twins at all in there, zero, zip. It would be one seriously odd choice to name particularly this track after the dynamic duo.

Yeah, no, that's not right.

 

I'm not going to spoil the mystery by revealing their names, but it's definitely NOT Lana and Maud.

Your theory, sir, is mostly spot on.

 

Yeah, I know, facts, they are boring. For the most part I'll never jump in and ruin a good conversation with stupid FACTS. But in this case…yeah, there's no greater mystery here.

That gives us licence to come up with names for the twins!

 

I called them "Hinge & Bracket" to myself. I imagined this is how they misspent their youth.

Well, that's clear then.

I always used to refer to the twins as "The Twins".

The twins' names can spoil the mystery?  :huh:

Umm...Heckle and Jeckle,long lost nieces of Crow?

 

Seriously,how can the names of the twins,of all people,spoil part of the mystery?Are we talking first names or last name?Like,say,McAllen or some other familiar last name?

Be thankful for the smaller mysteries. Nothing's worse than mystery with an incomprehensible solution.

No argument there.

I just assumed,because until now i never connected the twins with any mystery,small or big-just two lackeys of the bad guys,that they are somehow connected with one of the bigger mysteries.
