1. Hiero Sol's name is meant to mean "Sacred Sun" in a language prior to the Truth (or at least an early dialect of it). This is because, prior to his reactivation, he was worshiped by a village as an avatar of the sun. When he woke, he simply ran with the name. In our world, his name is a mixture of Greek and Latin since these are precursers to the English language in the same way his name would be to the Truth.

2. His Descriptor is a varient of Artificially Intelligent with the people skills inability swapped out for a severe inability with stealth and subtlety, and penalties to all his checks if he willingly allows a human to come to harm. (Yes, even bad humans)

3. His Foci is mostly just a reskinned version of "Rides the Lightning" 

4. In an actual campaign, Ro would be considered a "Story Complication". Specifically a "defenseless friend" that has to accompany the PC at least 75% of the time.
