Don't ask me how we got there, I don't know myself! The thing is, I was hanging with a bunch of friends, when all of a sudden, we find ourselves on a planet full of Schmulrogs! Damn, these head-chopping aliens won't let us go, unless we play one of their stupid game! Oh wait, one of them is coming.

-- Ahem... Hello humans, can you tell me your names?

-- There is Dave, Harry, Nancy, Mike, Sam, Kimber and I'm Wendy. What do you want from us?

-- You're Wendy? Interesting. I'll tell the others.

Argh, he's gone, what a waste of time! But hey, we're not complaining, they haven't chopped our heads off yet...

-- I'm back! Ok, let's play a game! We'll associate a letter to each one of you, except for Wendy. And you know what? Your goal will be to associate a letter to Wendy! But if the letter doesn't fit, well, you know, we'll kill you...
-- Wait, fit what?
-- Sorry, I can't tell much. Here are your letters.

Dave, you are associated with the letter S.
Harry, you get the letter P.
Nancy, the F.
Mike, the letter L.
Sam, you get the H.
Kimber, the letter T.

That's it, be logical, and see you in half an hour!

-- WHAT?!

He's already gone. Why me? I don't even know what we are looking for! Can you help us fast?

It's

B

because

when you replace the first letter of the person's name with the associated letter, you get an English word:

- Dave + S = Save
- Harry + P = Parry
- Nancy + F = Fancy
- Mike + L = Like
- Sam + H = Ham
- Kimber + T = Timber

and

- Wendy + B = Bendy

  • $\begingroup$ Why would Dave be S instead of G or P or W? This seems to be one of many possible answers, but it doesn't seem to fit tightly enough to be obviously correct. $\endgroup$ – Sconibulus Nov 15 '16 at 16:58
  • $\begingroup$ @Sconibulus good question, but 'bendy' is the only word fitting the pattern for Wendy. I think that's what counts, but we'll see soon enough if this answer gets accepted or not. $\endgroup$ – Glorfindel Nov 15 '16 at 17:00
  • $\begingroup$ The real puzzle here is who the heck's named Kimber $\endgroup$ – user1566694 Nov 15 '16 at 17:03

    $\begingroup$ I wonder what would've happened if they brought their black friend, L'Quanjika $\endgroup$ – user1566694 Nov 15 '16 at 17:11

    $\begingroup$ Also, head-chopper was a slight clue in order to 'play' with the first letter (the head of the word). $\endgroup$ – IAmInPLS Nov 15 '16 at 18:57
