Individuals may be real, legendary or imaginary, and do not need to be biologically
unique. Personas adopted for artistic or other purposes may be referenced with DOIs
as unique individuals. For example, the authors 'Ellis Peters' 'John Redfern' 'Jolyon
Carr' and 'Peter Benedict' may be identified as a unique parties distinct from the
person 'Edith Pargeter', for whom they are all pen-name pseudonyms. 'Mickey Mouse'
may be identified as an individual for the purpose of unique identification as a performer
in a creation, or 'Borat' or 'Hamlet' for the identification of a character depicted
in a fictional work.
