Characters

  • Smith - In an early scene in The Matrix Reloaded, Smith drives an Audi A8 with the license plate number "IS 5416"; in the King James Bible Isaiah 54:16 reads "Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy."
  • Neo / Thomas Anderson - The word 'Neo' is an anagram of the word 'One.' Neo- is also Greek for 'new,' suggesting messianic overtones for his mission in the Matrix. The name "Thomas Anderson" is likely a reference to the gnostic Gospel of Thomas and the Greek word for "man", andras, which, in ancient Greek, is andros in the genitive case. From "andros-son" we are given the term Son of Man, a direct reference to Jesus Christ.
  • Switch - Switch's name may be a reference to a network switch, or any number of "switches" used in computer technology. Many other Matrix characters' names reference computer technology, such as Mouse and Link. The name Switch could also be a reference to her white clothing ('switched' from the usual black attire worn by the others).
  • Cypher - Cypher's name may be a reference to ciphering, or encryption, which is commonly done to prevent computer documents and programs from being hacked. Cypher himself is very difficult to understand and his selfishness and treachery is hidden under a facade. The name is also a nod to the hacker subculture, which greatly influenced the first film. Cypher may also be related to the Lucifer, the Angelic name of Satan, referring to his actions in rebelling against Morpheus.
  • Tank and Dozer - References a military tank and a bulldozer. Both are heavy machinery, usually thought of as unstoppable.
  • Councillor Hamann - A reference to J. G. Hamann (Johann Georg Hamann), the philosopher.
  • Councillor West - A reference to, and played by, Dr. Cornel West, the philosopher.
  • Captain Soren - A reference to Søren Kierkegaard, the philosopher, originator of the concept and terminology of the "leap of faith" and often regarded as one of the fathers of existentialism. He used the pseudonym Vigilius Haufniensis ("watchman of the harbour) which also links to the ship's name.
  • Link - In general, a link is something that holds or binds things together. Most likely another reference to computer technology. In computer terminology, a "link" may be a reciprocal link, a hyperlink, a data link, or a hard link, among others. Also refers to Link from the Legend of Zelda series, emphasized by the name of his wife, Zee, short for Zelda.
  • Malachi - Meaning "My messenger/angel". Malachi was the last of the minor prophets and writer of the last book of the Old Testament.
  • Bane - meaning "nemesis" or "enemy."
  • The Merovingian - The Merovingians were a dynasty of Frankish kings who ruled parts of France and Germany from the 5th to the 8th century AD. According to some fictional accounts, for example the novel The Da Vinci Code, the Merovingians claimed descent from Jesus Christ. The Merovingian is also characterized fairly heavily as Hades -- Lord of the Underworld. In Greek mythology, Hades is married to Persephone.
  • Persephone - Greek mythology states that the goddess Persephone was taken to the underworld by Hades; she was the beautiful and lonely bride of a monster - Hades himself. Her mother, Demeter, goddess of the harvest, pled for her daughter's company; Hades, moved, allowed his wife to return from the underworld for six months a year. During the other half, Demeter mourns and winter reigns.
  • The Keymaker - A program designed to create access points through practically any location in the Matrix.
  • The Architect - A software architect is someone who designs computer systems at a high level, and The Architect is assumed to have designed the Matrix itself, but was unable to do so on his own; this is where The Oracle came in.
  • Mifune - In honor of Toshiro Mifune, an actor that played many Samurai in Japanese films.
  • Charra - (defender of Zion, woman with bazooka) Spanish for "cowgirl."
  • Choi - French for choice (Slightly altered—this is choix). His girlfriend is Dujour, French for of the day (Slightly altered—this is du jour). Choix du jour means plate of the day. Or it could pertain to Croix de Guerre which means Cross of War.
  • Zee - Is not a reference to actress Nona Gaye's aunt Zee (short for Zeola), as the character was named before Gaye was cast.
  • Sati - A reference to the Hindu figure Sati. Sati often means "Self immolation" or self sacrifice. In the language "pali", sati the state of being mindful, which means to be with what is, so sati is a special kind of consciousness or self-consciousness.
  • Rama Kandra - A reference to the Hindu figure Rama Kandra, one of the avatars of Vishnu.
  • Captain Kali - Kali is a Hindu goddess who is said to feed on the bodies of the dead on battlefields. The consort of Shiva, Kali counterbalances life with death.
  • Cain and Abel - (the Merovingian's two vampire henchmen) - Cain and Abel were the first two children (the children of Adam and Eve) in the Old Testament. Also a popular "hacking" program.
