Haldir

 

LOTR elf guy

 

 

I liked Haldir in the movie but he's not my overall favorite character, that would be either Boromir or Gimli (kinda partial to dwarves) but Haldir sounded better as a screen name, beats my other ones-- kenseth17 or something similar to that (my favorite NASCAR driver, Matt Kenseth car #17)

Mine goes way back to my younger daze when I wore glue in my hair and spiked it up. My original nickname was Urchin, but my older sister's wise-arse boyfriend started calling me Spike (pronounced 'Spoyk'), and originally I HATED it.

 

Then I found out the best way to utterly undo him was to get militant and pretend I liked it. Somewhere along the way I forgot I hated it, and the name stuck to me like so much hairglue.

 

Someday I will find the pic of the hell-hair that inspired it all.

My initial introduction to anything Reaper was CAV. After a couple games I started buying mini's and decided I wanted to be a mercenary, like I played in Battletech for twenty years. I'm also an amateur military historian and around the time I started playing CAV I'd been studying the battle at Thermopylae. I kinda liked the idea of a merc. unit called "The Spartans" and it stuck.

 

The "6" comes from the US military's designation for a commander. I'm the Spartan commander so, Spartan 6. ::):

Mine is from a LARP game persona, it had gotten to a point I am more widely know by my persona than my real name. It's a riot to have a room mate turn after answering the phone and say "Who the h$ll is Garm? And why he getting phone calls here?"

 

 

Garm

OK, is this a topic I really want to be answering?

 

I use two main handles online, Peachfuzz and Enchantra.

 

Peachfuzz was the creation of my mind late at night my Freshmen year of college. I was bored out of my mind and going out to the bars like everyone else wasn't my idea of a good time. So I was playing around online and someone had told me about a MUD online where I could meet people and talk. Sure that works for me. So I went to go and log into it. Heck I need a username. What can I use? I tried my real name, that had been taken. This was my first real huge exposure to the internet too. One of my roomies had a bowl of fresh fruit on her desk. I looked over at it. Peaches. Peaches are fuzzy. Peachfuzz! Thus Peachfuzz which was my major online handle for the next five years was born.

 

Entering into graduate school I joined a few more sites online and I needed a handle that wasn't as obvious as to who it could be. I was trying to sneak up on a friend online who had told me he was on a few places. I looked, yes he was definitely there. OK, so what kind of name can I come up with so he doesn't know it is me at first. I need a name that is alluring, and enchanting. Wait, enchanting? Ha! Enchantra! From there on in, Enchantra became my primary handle online.

 

EDIT: The only problem with Using Enchantra as my handle is that I recently did a Google search and came up with hundreds of different people who are using the same name.

Mine's 'cuz I've been told I have leonine features( long, thick mane 'o' blonde hair ,green eyes, etc), and the lion has sorta been my "totem" for a long time. My nickname in RL during H.S. and college was "The Beast", which was bestowed upon me at 3 different times by different people....guess it was meant to be. :B):

I used to, and still am, be known as the screen name Frank Vickers. This due to my real name being Francis, but couldn't be bothered to type that so I shortened it to Frank. Vickers is my bloodname from back in the day when I played in an online BT/MCG league.

 

When CAV started up, I joined Black Lightning. I was gonna use Akela as my callsign but found that Reaper Matt was using that, so I came up with Leech since my CAV merc unit is called Bad Blood.

 

Guess it'd kinda stuck, though I don't mind telling you, it was weird getting called Leech at ReaperCon last year.
