An egret is a type of bird which was historically hunted for it’s plumes.  It is likely also a play on Ygritte from Game of Thrones on which the model bears an uncanny resemblance.
Hearne, Scion of the Sun Father

GB-S2-Hunters-Hearne-TGN

Likely named after ‘Herne the Hunter’ a ghost associated with Windsor Forest and Great Park in the English county of Berkshire. Although it could possibly be a reference to English explorer, fur-trader, author, and naturalist, Samuel Hearne. He was the first European to make an overland excursion across northern Canada to the Arctic Ocean.
Chaska, Ironheart

GB-S2-Hunters-Chaska

The name Chaska is traditionally the name given to the first born son of Sioux Native Americans. It is also a city in Minnesota which was originally the homeland of the Sioux .
Seenah, the Great Bear

I am going to have to admit I have no idea why the bear is called Seenah, anyone have any thoughts?

Edit: Had a chat with the guys at Salute and it’s because they wanted a John Cena reference in Guild Ball.

Until next time sports fans!
