Indeed. "Tamia" was named after the famous Tamia Hill, the biracial Canadian singer famous for the 1998 hit song, "So Into You".
Mother would often listen to the song in the days when I was in group therapy, August 2013.
Yet another song:
I was in a chronic depressive haze with severe anxiety and yet still observant of the happenings around me.

There's no single path to your 'true potential'. Our potential is built out of the choices we make.

Whitlock is a pacifist and tries not to kill, or convince others not to kill, until he finds out Hex invaded the Foundry. Despite his pacifism, he understands why people go to war, and supports Kenna and her army's goal to take back Stormholt. His distaste for violence and murder was so great that he would rather be beaten up by Nevrakis soldiers than to obey their command of burning alive a crowd trapped in a barn.
Whitlock also tends to speak in technological jargon whenever he gets carried away in explaining his inventions, leaving anyone listening to him utterly baffled or annoyed. He is also easily angered whenever anyone calls him a boy or a child, reminding Val and Sei that he is a leader of an entire city.
Whitlock was the son of merchants in a town called Briarstone, presumably in Abanthus. The place was raided by Nevrakis soldiers who rounded up all able-bodied men and women for Luther's army. Initially picked as one of the recruits, Whitlock was instead selected to be a squire for a Nevrakis officer, Harman, after the soldiers deemed him too sickly to be in the infantry.
Unwilling to participate in the soldiers' dirty deeds, he then lived his days as a squire giving trouble for them, just enough to hinder them but not too much to be executed. Weeks later, Whitlock and the soldiers came into a village that the latter were about to raid, only to be met with resistance. The Nevrakis soldiers eventually disarmed the villagers and attempted to incinerate them, only for Whitlock to rescue them; consequently, he was beaten up by another soldier named Falco, then knocked unconscious by Harman, during his beating his arms were cut off by Elisa.
After waking up, Whitlock realized he was tended to by the villagers he saved, who gave him his prosthetic arms; he then headed out to the Foundry with what little belongings he had left. Being the youngest person ever to solve the Foundry's maze, he was marvelled by its people, the Technocrats, but most of all Hex, who took him in as her apprentice and upgraded his arms. Years passed, and Whitlock became the Technocrats' leader. Upon discovering Hex's atrocious use of their weapons, he banished her, unaware of the extremes she can reach.
