Did it again Christian not Cristian or Christan. But does the author know that belian or belial are other names for the devil and not God?

To answer questions about Oath of the Brotherhood, please sign up.
C.E. Laureano Baal is actually a common Hebrew word that means "master" or "lord," and while it's often used for any number of pagan gods, it's also used as a title or proper name of honor for humans as well.

That said, no, there is not an intentional link there. "Balian" is derived from the word "Balus" which was chosen because the name is used almost nowhere in literature or history and has an uncertain etymology.
