cyrus drake does resemble snape in many ways ,example: attitude, wants you to be expelled, asks you to get his laundry.

weird aint it 8)

i agree with neostar the girl Dorothy is like the Dorothy from Wizard Of
Oz she gives ruby slippers,she is from Kansas, and her quest is called
The Yellow Brick Road.

malistaire is cyrus drake's twin, so it would be likely that you thought of both of them

cyrus is like snape. has anyone notice that when you go to a school there is always a guy you don't like, i think cyrus is that guy!

I just realized Krokopatra is a scaley remake of the possibly kinder cleopatra. And I bet DS is based on Pompeii, the greek city buried alive. MS is acient china/japan. KT is acient egypt. WC is ... well you got me. GH is obviously Norse related. Last, MB is 19th century england.



lvl 17 pyromancer and proud of it!

(in game name is Amber Drake)

i agree wc is based on harry potter i heard candy land is a world

Definitely! However I would think Snape would be more of a death professor than storms.

Good catch!
Yes, and in the same manner that Snape wanted to be the professor of the dark arts, Drake has always lived in the shadow of Malistaire... the comparison fits.

Well they are both wizards, both have bad attitudes , so maybe cyrus was created by snape :P lol

Maybe it's that low, dreary voice and that "I-dislike-all-wizards-in-the-Spiral" attitude. :D

You may notice that a lot of the quest names aretongue in cheek word plays on pop culture. It was done deliberately.

i also saw a quest called "not in kansas anymore" where you find
Mr. TOTO and the tin man.

Yeah, and your reward (wait for it!).... Ruby Slippers from a girl named Dorothy ?

Dorothy GALE at that. Get it? "Gale" as in a very strong wind!

Oh, there are so many jokes and puns throughout this game, it's hard to keep up with them. There are also many, many allusions to historical incidents, people, and places throughout the game.

I'm certain that the KI team must be made up, in large part, by people who are of my generation, because so many of the easter eggs refer to pop culture in the 1970s and 1980s.

Such a delight :D

No, you aren't. He acts exactly like him because he hates, he tries to get you thrown out of school, and he is or related to someone evil...

It is obvious that cyrus drake is based of professor snape. think about it. CYRUS, Syrius. SNAPE, drake. and if you look around the world of wizard 101, many spoofs can be seen. for one, a unicorn way quest is called "saving private o ryan" which is obviously a spoof of the war movie "saving private ryan". So im pretty sure the developers meant for the resembalance.

Nice eye for noticing it though.

Incidentally, it's Severus (or maybe Snivellus, I liked it better) Snape, not Syrius. Sirius Black is nothing like Cyrus Drake.
i though sirius black looked more like malistaire except malistaire is way taller like 11 feet and he has no beard obviously :?
