  • As well as being a dedicated gamer, Wing is an anime fan.[8] He is also "generally a fan" of video game soundtracks, one of his favourites being Chrono Trigger.[9]

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Thematically, I love Paladin. The golden swords, justice, protecting the weak thing resonates with me. Paladins show up on the battlefield and give strength to their allies, while striking fear into the hearts of the wicked. They are timeless heroes.[10]
