So, I was watching a favorite show of mine, Stargate Atlantis, and I found myself wondering why the Wraith don’t have names either.
Eventually I just reasoned it out to being that their culture simply doesn’t need names to distinguish between one another, but uh, that’s a different topic.
Then it occurred to me that some of them did have names, or at least, the SGA team gave them names.
I give you Todd:
And dear old Michael:
This whole “Protectors” thing isn’t the first time we’ve had nameless species in a franchise. Now, these characters were only named because of their relevance with the story and interaction with the characters, and still, they were only named by the humans. Maybe, in order to avoid confusion with younger fans, LEGO will only be giving specific names to characters with larger plot points to fill, such as the Toa and the Mask Making Brothers. (if you notice, the Skull Spiders and the LoSS don’t really have names, just titles)
If LEGO does end up doing something like that, I doubt it will remain the same in the books as those are meant to expand the world and such.
Just a hypothesis!
