    So, Omid isn't an animal person?
  • edited January 2013
    I'm bad at recognising faces.
  • edited January 2013
    the general structure of the face is similar but the most distinguished thing about omid are his abnormally huge eyes which Barney doesn't have.
  • edited January 2013
    They aren't even the same race.

    How do you know that, lol?

    How are you getting that they look alike.

    Noses are different
    Eyes are different
    Hairline and hair is different
    Ears are different
    Skin color is different
    Jawline is different
    Eyebrows are different
    Chins are different

    Really I dont see similarity here

    While we're on the topic of Half Life, my sole purpose for trying to keep Mark alive was his resemblance to Gordan Freeman.

    Other than the facial expression, there isn't much similarity.

    The best part is that they aren't even the same glasses.

    Might all be true. Maybe I just have bad face perception but to me they looked pretty similar. Not 'oh my gosh, twins!'-similar but enough to at least mention it :p

    lol. Just because Omid is a persian name, he has not to be one. Thats not how the world works, you know?

    It makes it more likely that he's Persian. Or that his parents were Persian.

    Pretty naive, but lets keep it this way.

    his face looks pretty Persian to me,Probably because BOTH his parents were Persian...
    Of course your right...
    a lot of Persian families moved to the U.S in the 1970s SO he is probably american with a Persian origin...:confused:
    but tell me,why would any family name their child with a name originating from another country?:D:D
    but anyway....
    barney and omid look nothing alike,dude
    maybe their general face structure is kind of like each other but their noses,mouthes,brows,hairs are totally different...
    i'm kinda interested to how "demopan" knew,is it in the wiki?
    EDIT: checked it
    yep, its mentioned already...
    links here:
    CLICK
    in the trivia part:
    "Omid is the first Persian in The Walking Dead Universe to be introduced and specifically named."

    *laughs* When one of the devs says, he's persian, I'll accept him as persian. As long nobody says something like this, he's just some guy. You can't trust that wiki at all. And in China, people call their children John and stuff, is that enough as answer to your question?

    No. They don't. I have no idea where you got that from. I've been to China. I mean, some people do, but that's not the majority.

    Whe don't have a majority of persian people in america, either. The name has nothing to do with the lineage. Just because he is a bit darker skinned and is called Omid, it doesn't make him a persian. He could be a turk, too. Or a mexican. I have a spanish friend called Oskan, and he isn't even muslim.

    dude,i'm Persian...
    you think i can't understand the difference between a turk or afghan(:D) or maybe even indian from my own people?
    and by the way omid is an original persian name,meaning that it's not arabic,so turks or arabic countries don't have the name omid....
    and another thing...
    WHY THE HELL ARE WE HAVING THIS ARGUMENT IN HERE?
    i suggest someone makes a thread for it with voting...
    :D

    His parents could probably have named him that simply because it's a unique name(for that area). It wouldn't be the first time and won't be the last.

    It seems easy to mistake racial identities due to the art style of the game. :confused:

    Heck! With that logic me and my father are greeks (i've got kinda greek nose also, so no doubt that i'm a greek) and my bro and my mom are italians.

    My uncles: german, russian and one more greek (that's a lot of greeks).

    Yeah, because you have seen a white girl called Laquisha and a black guy called Kawabato, right?

    a lot of Persian families moved to the U.S in the 1970s SO he is probably american with a Persian origin...
