heh. I used to be one of those people who couldn't even take mild salsa. Now, the spicier the better. You just have to work up to it.
And yeah, I went Indian, for two reasons:
-Zack's coloration in Crisis Core made me think of Aishwarya Rai
-When I was bumming around Wiki trying to figure out where 'Gongaga' came from, and saw "Gongaga" was mighty close to "Gondwana/gondavana" (gondavana="the forest of god") and "Ganga," which is relating to the Ganges, and when I looked up rainforests I found there was a temperate rainforest in Georgia, and while looking up Indian food I found that the tandoor is used in Georgia as well, but called a tone (which is where the "tone" in "tone tiki" comes from; the "tiki" is from the "chicken tikka".) I found what I'm thinking is the origin of Gongaga a bit later (Gongaga<--Ginnungagap is the large void that was between Nifilheim and Muspelheim before the creation, and means 'the wide-open gap'), but the first stuck in my head.
Cloud I went with German, and I've also got Greek for Mideel/Banora, thanks to Genesis' name. Imma nerd!
