How Did You Come About Your Username?

Recommended Posts

Just made it up with a bunch of other names. Keep 'em in a name closet in my brain.

Behold! The secret never revealed before! The one and only, origin story of CIRAXIS!

 

Okay, okay let's put ham and drama aside.

Long ago when he as but a kid yours only played a both Baldur's Gate games and came to greatly enjoy them. Then, few years after that came another from the franchise on PS2 known as Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance. It of course shared the setting withe the previously mentioned games, but in play-style it was anything like them. Luckily by that time I came to like hack-and-slash games by that time as well (thanks to Diablo and Diablo 2 among other things). One of the bosses was an white dragon Ciraxis. While not exactly the hardest boss in the world, I always was a sucker for ice levels and it helped that the dragon had an awesome theme as well (Created by Jeremy Soule so 'Duh!'). A few years back when internet was really starting taking off in my country I started coming out with different usernames for many websites and forums. One day when I was registrating on yet another one I recalled this awesome battle from BG:DA. So I took dragon's name for my own. And...well It grew on me. I was Ciraxis ever since, and the fact it's not an usual one helps too. I have yet to run into anyone sharing it with me, but I heard about at least three copycats from my net acquaintances.

I made my username from something I'd been writing; I was intending to make a pony setting separate from mlp for a friend who, at the time, got tired of mlp for a while bc of interaction with the bad fans. I never finished building the setting beyond some species stuff and a creation myth that has a lot to do with a natural cycle of creation/destruction with the world. The being representing destruction was a dragon, so, when I was remaking a tumblr account and struggling with a username, I ended up thinking about that setting again, thus 'dragonofruin'
