    Or your Avatar, Fursona, or whatever else! Where did they come from? I want to hear your stories!

    For me, my Avatar comes from a VN called Morenatsu, his name is Juuichi. Honestly, I like Wolves, I even have a tattoo of a wolf on me lol. But this guy....THIS GUY! Something about him. I really like him.

    And my name comes from a game called Brave Story. Really fun game. Here is the REAL Sogreth. Sogreth.png

    Actually...now that I think about this game again. There is also an Anthro cat too. Ima see if I can find a picture... Brave_story_new_traveler_conceptart_UsV5e.jpg
    There she is! If I remember, her mom was a cat-anthro too, and her dad was a human. I didn't think much of it at the time. But that's pretty cool!

    SSJ3Mewtwo has been my online handle for....crap, like, 15+ years. I set it up to participate in a Mewtwo-fandom roleplay forum, and as far as I can recall that was the first time I genuinely used it as a handle. From then on, pretty much anywhere I registered that, or a version of it, was what I used.

    It was a play on the antagonism between the DBZ fanbase and the Pokemon fanbase that was pretty rampant on the internet at the time. Me, I loved both series, and never really got why the different fandoms just couldn't resist sniping at eachother.

    Also, a Level 3 Super Saiyajin Mewtwo would looks awesome.

    Khazius The Fruit Bat

    Khazius was a name I stuck with years ago. It started as Khaz which was how my friend pronounced Zach (My real first name) backwards when I acted out of character. I added Ius to it to make the name sound longer and stuck with it ever since.

    Smite is my favorite MOBA to be honest.Hi-rez did a great job,even If people say that the game is cursed and its a rip-off from LoL and Dota.I've been playing since beta.My name,katalistik, its actually derived from catalyst but it sounds...better...

    Indeed. I was previously wrong on there being several threads with the same topic: There's only one. The second time I answered this question were in a PM, so that one doesn't count.

    I actually liked it too. I don't know how people can call it a "rip-off". That's like saying any MMORPG that came after the first MMORPG is a rip-off. Smite is just another MOBA.

    Honestly, I'm not a fan of MOBAs, but I still liked Smite. I really like the Greek Mythology stuff.

    Like I said before, I changed 2 letters in the FA "verify your account" code (which shows how unprepaired I was for making an account) but at least I caused a problem with the pronunciation (zahr-oyhn) and I have heard like 8 different ways that isn't the right one.

    PlusThirtyOne What DOES my username mean...?

    i got my name from my parents. :V
    As for the one in my avatar, it's more fun to keep peeps guessing.
    Hint: it has far less to do with math and numbers than you think.
