Okay, here's another one that I think might be pretty cool; during 
Ibronka's journey to Adrilankha in PotD, she has a dalliance with a 
certain corporal named Dortmund.

Apparently a Dragon, and a career soldier in Kana's army.

Is this possibly the same Dortmund as we meet in Cropper Company during 

Both are career military Dragonlords of low rank. Both have a significant 
interest in the ladies. It seems quite possible to me that this could be 
one character.

To the left, of course, Dortmund might be as common a name among Dragons 
as Tem is among Teckla, and certainly an interest in the ladies is 
something that all career soldiers are likely to have to a greater or 
lesser degree (the male ones, anyway). Also, the Dortmund of Cropper 
Company doesn't seem like the type to buck for corporal--but this might be 
due to some earlier life experience (like a humiliation encountered while 
serving in Kana's army, maybe?).

This one seems like it would be pretty Cool.
