  • According to Rhymes with Play #162, Pugna was originally from "our world", most likely referring to Earth, before he arrived at the Forge.
  • Pugna's voice was changed multiple times during The Forge beta.
  • His name, "pugna", is literally translated as "war" in Latin.
    • The word also carries similar connotations in certain Romance languages, such as "conflict" in Spanish, "battle" in Italian, and "struggle" in Portuguese.
