Xin, in this image of Charlescomm's capital, were the winged O's inspired by Rayman?

Charlie's emblem is based on the pin the archons were wearing in book 1. I added the O on a whim, because it fit visually and enlarged the dimensions of the symbol to give it a more balanced look. I can't discount some sort of unconscious influence, but the likelihood is low since I'm not really familiar with that series.
