"Curiosity struck"
 
   LAST EDITED ON Jan-26-20 AT 07:11 AM (EST)
 
And so, I had to ask:

Since the Neuroi pretty much prevented WW2, and they're also pretty much trashing all of the world, as it were...are there notable witches who AREN'T essentially expies of famous flyer-aces, or the like? Juanita Q. Pública of what would be Portugal, or something?


Edit to add, not necessarily in-story, just in the universe as it were. Everyone we've seen who aren't part of the 501st seem to be notable people from our history in some way. I was just wondering if there are big aces who aren't that.

I dunno! I can't think of any characters from the actual World Witches setting who aren't references to real people, except for a few odd Fusō witches who are actually based on aircraft rather than pilots.

In OWaW, it's possible, if only because the war has lasted beyond 1945 but hasn't reached the timeframe of the Korean War, with implications for the "historical" candidate pool. There's also, as you imply above, the fact that nations that were noncombatants in WWII are involved in the Second Neuroi War (Baltland, for instance, and probably Iberia as well).
