As much as we might identify with fictional characters, it is correct and fair to say, they don't qualify as once or current living, breathing humans.
It would be nice if we could hear from BarbaraL on the subject as the origination of the game was her doing and she should be the one to decree the interpretation.
And so apart from all the above, LOL this was a fun exercize and please carry on doing whatever floats your boat.
I wouldn't have started with fictional characters if way back someone hadn't put Morgan le Fey...
