Bridget from Guilty Gear. Does he turn you on? I hope not. If you're wondering why, read the sentence over again carefully. There are no typos in it.
Why is it wrong? Bridget's hot!

Username - If I may have the luxury of quoting myself, from my Civilization 3 FAQ posted on GameFAQs in 2001, although I've had the username awhile longer (first used on that same site in March of 2000):

"The nice thing about religion in video games is that it's non-denominational. If you're a Christian, imagine your people devoting their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ. If you're a Muslim, imagine your people bowing toward Mecca and sending their prayers to the Great Allah. If you're an atheist named Dave, imagine that the little peons on the screen worship their Lord and Savior the Great Lord Dave. Imagine that their lives revolve around preparing for the Coming of the Great Dave to save them from the evil clutches of All That Which
Is Not Dave. Whatever gets you through."

Avatar - Me, circa September 2006 (I'm four years older and my hairline is retreating toward Colin Mochrie status at an alarming rate), with my old rat Buster (RIP little buddy), the most awesome pet I've ever had, on my shoulder being an awesome rat.

Username The most amusing history lesson ever was about Caligula and some of the more ecentric things he did during his reign: He sent an entire legion of his soliders to the shores of England to "Find me seashells." It tickled me.

Avatar One of my favourite characters from Final Fantasy IX, my favourite of the series.

The Nuckelavee comes from Orcadian folklore. Effectively it's a disgusting centaur/fin with no flesh, yellow blood coursing through it's veins and an aversion to running water. Combined with this is it's capacity to instigate crop death and plagues and such. I used the name for a while as a running character in a book I was trying to write. The character that shared it's name was pretty awesome so I stole it.

Molluck. I could never sympathise with the natural characters on oddworld, they always seemed to promote terrorism as a means of getting around due process. Surely to *US* it seems unethical to beat Mudoken's and hunt animals to extinction but then, a planet in which there are countless numbers of sentient species all with their own personal agendas, morality, laws and processes shouldn't be subject to the thin viewpoint of humanity with it's single dominant species having zero competition. I always saw the issue as this, with all the suffering on oddworld caused by the competition of the various sentient species, Molluck is merely attempting to eliminate this suffering in the only way in which a Glukkon knows how: Economic struggle and elimination. He chooses to systematically eliminate a number of competing sentient species lower in the hierarchy, in an attempt to bring pleasure to those species higher up in terms of dominance, yet we are expected to sympathise with Abe and his ilk as they subvert the course of one Glukkon's attempts to bring about a happy world? All because he supports the "natural way" of doing things? Eco-terrorism is never the answer I'm afraid.

TL;DR Avatar
Molluck is awesome, plus he wears a suit. Suit = cool.

Username- Loor was a nickname given to me from an ex. boyfriend, dealing with the Pendragon serise. For those who haven't read it, Loor is a warrior chick who solves all of her problems with violence... which was a good discription of my personality back in middle school. It's stuck since it also kinda sounds like my real name. The Dark Elf part is, oddly enough, not to do with WoW and to do with a HUGE obsession over the Jak and Daxter trilogy; Dark Jak is smexy, okay?

Avatar- Something I had made up for me on DA; a fellow artist animated a picture of my namesake OC for the Jak 'verse.

Username: friend once tried to punch me in the shoulder; hit my bone and nearly broke his finger. Claimed I had iron skin. Also I was the tallest kid in my class. Later on while playing Counter Strike during our computer science class I had to pick a username so I went with colossus (I was fascinated by Seven wonders of the ancient world and also I loved X-men cartoon which was airing at the time). When I started playing online I encountered many ppl with that nick so I shortened it to CoL0sS. Uppercase CLS came from clear screen command in DOS, and I played a lot of online shooters back then. Zero just makes it look cool :p
