"R Dan" is a shortened version of the name I've been called (in RL) for many years.
I was called "Rugby Dan" while on holiday where there were shed loads of other Dans..(typical! Shocked) and it stuck.
why "rugby"? because I played shed loads of rugby, was trying to go pro at the time (and looked it too) so wasnt tough for the other folks at the resort to remember...we also had "tall dan" "ginger dan" "football dan" "fat dan"....there were alot of Dans

anyway, it stuck and when I took up computer gaming a few years after it seemed the logical choice. - Even though I've had to give rugby up now (should be Snowboarder Dan now I guess... or Snow Dan....i dunno :P we'll see....hmm how about Lazy Dan....?)

Kalindra nas Kan is one of the main characters in the story 'the Family nas Kan'.
I was completely taken by it and when I found EVE I just had to have something that kept reminding me of it.

I suggest that everyone at least reads the first part.

Sergeant Spot

Posted - 2006.09.26 12:13:00 - [68]

Long long ago, on a back room gaming table far far away, as a young teen I sat down to a Sci/Fi roleplaying game called "Traveller"

It was about 1981 or 1982.....

The character I did up was a Baron that was of a wolf based raced called the Vargr.

I called him Baron Von Spot.....

I enjoyed playing Baron Von Spot.

When I started playing Mankind 1.7 in the late 90s, I called myself "Von Spot".

However, every now and then, some one assumed I was German (I'm U.S., but am of German ancestry...). This made me feel a bit phony, so when I started Eve I dropped the "Von" and added "Sergeant" (which truth be told, fits better, as I am a Sergeant, and like it that way.....)

King Redbad (679 - 719 A.D.) The heathen king Redbad is the greatest folk hero of the Frisians. He is the defender of the Frisian freedom against the invading Frankish armies and against the Church of Rome. Redbad was a devout heathen. So when the Franks were internally divided as whom was to rule, he attacked the Franks, conquered Utrecht and distroyed the church. Christianity was then forcefully removed from the Frisian empire.
In 689 A.D. Pepin II leads the Frankish conquest in the Frisian lands and he takes Dorestad. Between 690 and 692 A.D. Utrecht also falls into the hands of Pepin. Thereby controlling the important gateways of trade from the Frankish hinterland to the North Sea via the river Rhine.
In 714 A.D. Pepin dies. Redbad takes advantage of this and he beats the Frankish armies under Charles Martel in 716 A.D. at Cologne, thereby winning back the Frisian Empire. King Redbad dies in 719, leaving behind a Great and Heaten Friesland.

A love for sharks, combined with my RL name... hence the C instead of a K in the spelling, it's pronounced Sharky though

When I started EVE I was reading the 'His Dark Materials' books by Phillip Pullman, I decided to use Iorek (from Iorek Byrnison the armoured bear) and the Caprica came because I had started watching the new Battlestar Galactica at the time.

Some people accuse me of copying some masked skinny whitey from the anime series Gundam Wing, or the main character's father from Final Fantasy X, but this is to set the record straight; I made this one up. Very Happy

Someone once told me that it means something in Dutch... haven't actually looked into it.

Posted - 2006.09.26 13:58:00 - [83]

Nope, "Zecht" isnt something in Dutch ... "Zucht" is, means "sigh"

'Flash Landsraad'

My surname in real life is 'Gordon'. People started calling me Flash years ago (after the Flash Gordon comic/film char and the famous song by Queen for the soundtrack) and it's stuck as a nickname since, hence the Flash part of my name.

'Landsraad' I got from the Landsraad council in the Dune books who are a representation of great power.

I wanted to call my char "livewire" like the AC/DC song - but i mispelled it since i hated english in school - and i hated the school, all in it, the whole town, the land and the world Neutral

The evil thing was that if you google this song you find it written "livewire" and "lifewire" - so i guess AC/DC-websides are made by drunken people.

But in the end the name fits because i am in life insurance business Twisted Evil
