Etymology of Dev/Null's name is from computer code, null device, a device file that discards all data written to it but reports that the write operation succeeded. There are many ways to interpret the correlation between the null device and the character, but overall, both are of value, in computing and in the game, while seeming to be flawed or useless.
- "Pink? 'At's a mite silly name" - Dev/Null knows that Pink is an Assamite assassin
- "Your mom's at the bar of clay" - Dev/Null knows that Lily's sire, Alexandra, is at the back entrance of the Barclay Hotel
- "Speaking of traps, I emailed Bill for a pink and fluffy surprise. To eat your words." - Bill is, of course, Wilhem. Traps is relevant to both Pink, and Wilhem sent to intercept him.
