Red Panda for sure.

but another idea dawned on me when looking at the poster Richard's avatar, which is a painting of Richard Cœur de Lion: royal cognomens. you know when you hear the names of kings like Pedro the Cruel, Æthelred the Unready, Philip the Good, the names which are appended before or after the real name are cognomens.

Paul the Accursed (from Sviatopolk the Accursed)
Eric the Unready (from Æthelred the Unready)
Deryk the the Quarreller (from Louis X of France)
