Pino's journey through the storyline of Ergo Proxy is very similar to the story of Pinocchio - with Vincent Law taking the form of a very different Jiminy Cricket. Raul Creed can be assumed to be Gepetto since his last scene in the series is picking up one of Pino's drawings of their family and he smiles paternally, as if accepting that she became his true daughter, hence why Pino is short for "Pinocchio".

Rich Storyline that can be confusing for those unwilling to think
This series is wonderful. Though I cannot explain the storyline, for it is very intricate and I do not completely understand it myself, I can recommend it. If my word is not enough, consider that it is done by the same team which did "Cowboy Bebop", "Wolf's Rain", and "Samurai Champloo" - all wonderful shows. The characters are quite developed and it contains a rich plot. I do warn that if you are not a fan of having to think about something you watch, this is not the show for you; it can be very confusing at times and requires a deal of brain power to understand. If you do not take the time to attempt to understand it, by the first few episodes you will be lost, just a few more before you'll want to give up on the series. But, if you are one who enjoys thought-provoking works, I'm sure you would enjoy this.
