Character name / description

I'm a little confused here.
I have created a character, Rusty

Proper name:
Rusty

Article / Adjective / Noun
The old Innkeeper

My problem is that when I talk/ask him and use
>ask rusty about castle (example) I get the reply: I don't understand what you want to do with the castle.

But when I use
>ask innkeeper about castle, I get the reply I wrote in the conversation tree.

When do I get to use ask Rusty? It should be possible otherwise there's no reason to give the character a proper name, is there?

Have you entered rusty as a synonym of 'innkeeper''? If not, try it.

Is this related to Player knows character? if that is ticked then you can use the proper name?
