The reference for Myriel is Father Myriel from Les Miserables. Father Myriel was the Priest who Val Jean robbed from and helped Val Jean start his road to change. I choose this name reference since this character is the one to take John in and took care of him after his daughter Hazel found him. Im looking for less familiar names for my alien characters. I gave him the design on his scientist outfit as a reference to a Priests robe.
