Danko's/Nathan's analyst

I think we need to find a better method of naming them. From what I've seen, Nathan's analyst has answered to not only Nathan, but Danko, and even Noah as well (I can't remember if Danko's analyst has answered to anyone else though). Any suggestions? -Sincerely, Thrashmeister » talk- 21:19, 2 March 2009 (EST)

  • I agree. It bothered me going to Nathan's analyst and adding something there about Danko. I don't think they're analysts that "belong to" or work for any one person in particular. They all work on the initiative of locating evolved humans. Sure, Nathan is the political head of that operation, and Danko runs the missions, but I wouldn't say that the analysts are "Nathan's analyst" or "Danko's analyst". My only suggestion is not the best one: "Analyst (I)" and "Analyst (II)". Perhaps we can name them by something they've said or done? I don't remember them well enough to suggest another name, though. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:30, 2 March 2009 (EST)
    • Right. When I first renamed the 'Analyst' article (which was the past version of Nathan's analyst, I didn't think that he'd reappear. Evidently, he did, and we're faced with a situation. For the record, Danko's analyst alerts Danko about Sylar and commands the operation to capture him. Nathan's analyst alerts Nathan about Tracy's arrival, alerts Danko about Peter's presence at the storage unit, alerts Nathan about Peter holding Danko at gunpoint, and does something in Exposed, although since I haven't watched the episode I'm not sure what. There's likely to be more analysts coming, so I think numbers (I)(II)(III) are our best bet. --Radicell 04:38, 3 March 2009 (EST)
    • So... have we had more ideas? We could go by race - as we have done with Hispanic woman - and name them Asian analyst and Caucasian analyst, although it does look awkward and out of place. --Radicell 20:21, 6 March 2009 (EST)
      • I think naming a person by their race is generally in poor taste. Doralicia was actually credited as "Hispanic woman", which is why she has that name. I think we might need to go with a parenthetical numbering system for the analysts, unfortunately. However, we might want to wait to see if either of the analysts--or any other analysts--appear again to maybe give us something else with which to name the guys. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:44, 7 March 2009 (EST)
        • You know, another option would be to name Jonny Siew's character "analyst", and then name James McAndrew's character "analyst (Building 26)". It wouldn't be the first time--we did that with Michael Reilly Burke's character. I don't really have any strong feelings one way or another about what the names end up as, only that we don't use the names as they are now ("Danko's analyst" and "Nathan's analyst") since they are misleading. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:49, 7 March 2009 (EST)
        • Yeah, agreed with name change. I do recall Danko's analyst, in the Building 26 episode, radioing Danko's team out in the field and calling himself Central command. Would "central commander" or something of the like be okay? After all, the only reason I inferred him as an analyst in the first place was because he was sitting and tapping away at computers like all the other analysts were, and I had missed his "central command" comment. He could actually be a field commander or something like that, and the central command line seems to support that. --Radicell 09:52, 7 March 2009 (EST)
          • If it's alright with everyone I'll make the changes soon, with Danko's analyst becoming Central commander and Nathan's analyst becoming Analyst. --Radicell 09:19, 8 March 2009 (EDT)
            • Sounds good to me. Just a note, though, that James McAndrew's character is still an analyst so he still belongs on this disambig page. But great job picking out that detail, Radicell. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:49, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
