Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The logo is described as a "claw-and-eye"[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Pinkwater sounds like a portmanteau of Blackwater Security Services, a private military contractor that made headlines during the Iraq War after a small convoy was ambushed by terrorists and returned fire, as well as a history of corruption and abuses of power, and Pinkerton, a private security company that has existed since the 1850s and in the early 1900s exhibited many similar behaviors in the US to Blackwater in Iraq.
