NPC – Kim Won Gi
This came to my attention courtesy of Keredria of Tree of Life.
Kim Won Gi is found in the Valley of the Four Winds, at Halfhill. This Fruit dealer is named after Kim Won Ki, a professional Starcraft player who won the Season 1 Global Starcraft 2 League (netting him US$89k). He played zerg, which was thought to be vastly inferior to terran, and was thought of as the greatest SC2 player at the time of his win. His handle, translated from Korean 과일장수, means “fruit dealer” (hence the NPC’s tag), so named because his mother was a fruit seller and he would often help at her store.
