    Derivative of Flea, which was going to be my nickname when I was in a band back in high school. Turns out Red Hot Chili Peppers have one, so I added a Z. Started using it as an alias online, got spammed via email, added 2 more z's, middle is usually capitalized, who knows why. Recently started using the alias blacksteyraug but not a good time for a name change, it appears.

    My nickname has nothing to do with Marvel, I just came up with it one day when I was like 12. It was unique enough that I could use it everywhere - I never had to worry about anybody else having it already. I still use it for new places today sometimes.

    I have used other names, however; Lone Wolf Winter and Savior among them. The former came from an extreme metal song of the same name, while the latter was decided by a good friend of mine as what I'd go by if we ever formed a metal band.

    SODesignZ - Was the very first username that I chose after I made this account to be used by the members of this website called SODesignZ. Then very soon it failed and I started using this account for myself and then I think I changed the name to be .Zohair or something which is also my real name. Anyway and now recently before the revamping of GR I used to be known as zohBOT which is the final nickname that I chose for myself. I don't remember or can think of any other usernames. =]

    I've had a few different accounts on here. Trinity_of_Blood (which was the name I used in neverwinter nights), requiem trigger, and a few others before settling on inverse.

    inverse is appropriate i think because i always don't do the opposite of what you don't think i'm not going to do the opposite of, if you get my meaning.

    Around 2003-2004, (when I first discovered forums) I was in a RPG Simulation club and the way I did my "missions" were laughable since I had no idea what I was doing. The members of the club invited me to their AIM chat rooms, and a girl dubbed me Colin from my personality. During one AIM conversation, she called me Colinsky so I just embraced the name. In fact, I embraced the name in general so I could be part of their clique. The club is long gone now, but it still lives on in my memory. R.I.P. Hylian Knights.
