Toukai's pull message come from an appropriate literary source as well:

Quote::
The Cat only grinned when it saw Alice. It looked good-natured, she thought: still it had VERY long claws and a great many teeth, so she felt that it ought to be treated with respect.

`Cheshire Puss,' she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. `Come, it's pleased so far,' thought Alice, and she went on. `Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'

`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.

`I don't much care where--' said Alice.

`Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.

`--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.

`Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, `if you only walk long enough.'

Alice felt that this could not be denied, so she tried another question. `What sort of people live about here?'

`In THAT direction,' the Cat said, waving its right paw round, `lives a Hatter: and in THAT direction,' waving the other paw, `lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad.'

`But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.

`Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'

`How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.

`You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.'

    - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

"Unitary Authority of Warrington Cat" is another Wonderland reference, but from a different source. As you all know, The Cheshire Cat is now known as the 'Unitary Authority of Warrington Cat' because they moved the county boundaries - or more commonly, 'The Cat formerly known as Cheshire'.

Origins of Voldin:

Ultima 7.5 The Serpents Isle

He is the "Great Captain" in Fawn, the city of love. He betrays the Avatar's (you) best friend Dupre and imprisons him. However, he is extremely guilty about his actions. You eventually end up killing him. Alas, though it is not his fault because he is not an evil person by nature, rather he was being influenced by a force called "The Guardian" the evil representation of yourself. (Eeeek! Ultima story spoiler). Who is manipulating the world through an evil monk called Batlin.

Truely he is the tragic and conflicted character of Ultima 7.5.

But honestly I just liked the f'ing name. I have been using that name for probably the better part of a decade if not longer.
