My best friend when I was around 10 showed me a game called torn city that he wanted me to play with him. We wanted to start a business together in the game so we wanted to have similar names. His name was death526 so I went with death525.
I was trying to come up with a name for my first World of Warcraft character (Gnome Warlock, for those who care), and I was not noticing the fact that my dad was calling for me. Up to the point that he stormed into my room, asking me if I was deaf (The Dutch word for which is 'doof').
I had a stroke of inspiration (Let's take away an O and turn the F into a V!) and decided to put the single-most stereotypical fantasy-esque syllable that I could think of behind it. Hence, Dovius.
Well...for the majority of my conscious life, I've felt a general sense of unease. A perpetual loneliness...an inescapable feeling that I am not long for this world and destined to spend what remains of my time on Earth quietly searching for answers, desperately clinging to whatever semblance of satisfaction or joy I can glean from the many interactions/events I come across/experience.
Also, I'm a half lion, half eagle creature the size of a large horse.
The latter just makes the aforementioned problem much more difficult to reconcile. I tend to knock things over while in confined spaces. It is lamentable, but unavoidable.
Initially it was simply two words that I thought had a very contrary meaning together. When you think Ninja, you usually don't think "happy". Also I've found that whenever I come up with a username online, and I get the "sorry that name's been taken" message, if I put 42 at the end of it, it was always approved. So now I incorporate it into most of my names as a preventative measure against that message.
Since creating the handle though, I invented a story for it, inspired by Dr. McNinja.
I was once a member of a Mook Ninja Army, sent to do battle against an Epic Badass Hero. Due to the Inverse Ninja Law, me and my compatriots were summarily cut down to nothing, *insert dramatically epic music here* Until only I remained! And no, as the Sole Survivor Ninja, I was no longer subject to the Inverse Ninja Law, and had power leveled up to being en Epic Badass Hero myself!! *triumphant horns play here* I did battle with the man who slew my comrades and crushed him!! But in honor of my fallen friends, I kept my old number of 42 to pay tribute to their sacrifice. *tragically nostalgic music at the loss of loved ones concludes here*
Two things, it's one of the meanings of my first name and two, imagine you're new to the internet back when it was new and fresh and your first endeavor was to find a chess website. Hence, white knight/ light knight. I just thought white knight sounded like a race thing.
'Fiz' is a nickname that I have from a few of my friends, well, I should say one of many. That one was pretty popular about a few years ago and gets mentioned every now and then with them.
'The Toaster' I got from this little, and I mean like one inch tall and one and half inch wide, plush toaster with an angry face that a friend of mine made for me for my birthday years ago. There's a back story behind it, but I will spare you lovely people the details. It sits on my desk and I was staring at it when I was coming up with the username.
