I need advice. I wrote the start of a very short story that takes place in a remote region of the world in the near future. I worry that the names I used don’t reveal enough about the characters. Anyone have opinions on the names I used for these folks?
The gathering promised to be full of tension, as the ambassadors have never been of the agreeable type. Their world has never been known for its acceptance of other cultures. Each political district has tried for years to claim the disputed territories, and their ambassadors could be ruthless negotiators.
Perhaps the most aggressive was the team from the district formed in the remote regions of the Ural Mountains. Adnoh Drocca and Drof Sucof, each renowned for their clever negotiating skills, but as a pair, they were virtually unbeatable. Their eastern neighbors had a nearly comparable team in Amitla and Eugor Nassin, brother and sister, born in the border area they were fighting so hard to retain. Their tactics were more sly than the sometimes deceptive techniques of Drocca and Sucof.
Finally, the district to the south laid claim to the delta area where they demanded mining rights. Rota Givan and Odar Evlis usually resorted to alcohol to soften their opponents, waiting patiently to catch them at their most vulnerable moments, and seize the opportunity as had worked for them in earlier negotiations.
