Okay, I originally didn’t plan to post about this because it was not interesting to me at all.
I visited some forums and saw threads with ”LEGEND NAMES CONFIRMED!!!!”, ”Ian, Ochan, Utan”.
Well, they are not confirmed. Just because you saw 아란, 에반, 이안, 오찬 and 우탄 on a screen does not mean it is officially confirmed.
First of all I want to say that currently there are only two Heroes in the game. Aran is the only Legend (and Hero). However, Evan is not a Legend. Evan is a successor of the past hero. The second hero in question is Freed.
▲ Shown at the MapleStory user conference. It shows that the heroes of the past who fought against the Black Magician were Aran, Freed, XXX, YYY and ZZZ.
So who is this Freed? The Dragon Master of the past was a hero named Freed who fought against the Black Magician. Freed was accompanied by his Onyx Dragon, Afrien.
The Onyx Dragon laid an egg and asked Freed to hide it. Freed promised he would fulfill the request of Afrien.
During the last battle with the Black Magician, Freed dies and Afrien takes the curse of being confined in ice I think.
As time goes by, Evan, an ordinary boy who lives nearby Henesys has a dream where he found a huge dragon while wandering through a dreamy forest. He wakes up and sees a mark on his hand.
After a while Evan finds a dragon egg in a forest and decides to keep it. (This is the egg from Afrien)
Once the egg hatches, you will discover a dragon hatched from the egg. The name of the dragon is Mir, a descendant of Afrien.
Later once Mir starts to grow, Evan and Mir want to find out what kind of dragon Mir is. After studying from the books, they discover Mir is an Onyx Dragon. The same race as Afrien. (Which is logical since Afrien is the parent of Mir)
During the journey, Evan joins a secret organization. Later the organization is known as Black Wings, a group following and praising the Black Magician.
Evan is doing things for Black Wings to help the Maple World. And this takes after Aran. But after Evan and Mir are told that the Black Wings is an evil organization trying to resurrect the Black Magician, they immediately leave the organization.
So all of this means that Evan is not a legend but the current Dragon Master. When you become Lv. 200, you will obtain a medal named Hero’s Successor which makes Evan the new Hero.
These were all guesses by a random person, because of the pattern.
So it’s NOT confirmed. The presenter said that one of the names ‘Ian’ came up in a company meeting. They might use the name Ian for the next Hero.
The name ‘Ian’ was suggested when they were creating Aran.
Just wait till the new Hero comes out
Though, it has been confirmed that because of this they visit fan sites such as Insoya and Playforum.
So about these new names.. it was all for jokes, folks. Sigh. You guys got pranked. haha.
