There was a feature-length LEGO cartoon a few years ago that had a character called Clutch Powers as its protagonist and supporting characters named Peg Mooring, Kjel Playwell and Artie Fol. I vaguely recall that Artie Fol introduced himself that way but his name badge said "A. FOL".

Hahah, WOW! I bow to your superior Google skills. It's going to be hilarious the next time he googles himself. You are absolutely right. My apologies for my memory failing and adding an "L" where it shouldn't have been.

You made me sign up to this forum, albeit 7 years later.  Yes, it has been barrels of fun finding this post.  Hilarious indeed; honored to be a topic.  I now have two sons, who both went through Lego phases.  We visited the LegoLand in DFW and watched the 3D Ninjago film.  I am secretly a great fan of the Ninjas and even my older son (now 15) still follows them. 

BTW, Vadec is derived from Władek, which is a shorter form of Władysław, an ancient Polish name, held by a number of Kings.  It's phonetic meaning comes close to something along the lines of Ruler of Slavs, which we Poles are.  The letter Ł, ł is the first sound You hear in English words like: War, or Weekend.  Nothing to do with Vladek, with an L.  I dislike that version immensely (it feels like styrofoam on glass to me and hurts my teeth) and dropped the non-English letter entirely.  

Cheers, Vadec.

Vadec! What an honor to have you here. Thanks for the explanation of the origin and thanks even more for the update on yourself and family. I really enjoyed your lab and you certainly made an impression, haha.

Goodhart sounds like 'Good Heart', as in a person who is kind and caring

Grizzled is a term used to describe a (old) man with graying hairs

Detain means to hold or keep in custody, what you do to criminals after you capture them.

Ohhh, their first names have nothing to do with punny last names then.
