Let's write a bit of NoX history together. Let's all share the backstories of our (no matter how old) NoX character names. I'm sure this might shed a bit of light on the people themselves and their interests/preferences.

Here are some of mine:

Ephreaym/Eph: When I was done with having to pick a different name because mine was already taken. So I made my real name my gamer tag, just spelled as complex as possible.

What about the bourgeois?


I guess this is the first time for SJ to post some Maurice Ravel piano stuff without being it offtopic.

Most of them are fantasy characters I've created when I had the urge to write something.

Reveneth Oakin is no different.

I came up with Reveneth and a friend of mine came up with Oakin, by looking at his old mobile Nokia phone and rearranging letters. :)

Sergius is merely the original Latin variant of my name...

As for Aspirador Desfibrador - these are Spanish words:
Aspiradora means "vacuum cleaner"
Desfibradora means "shredder"

I cut off the ending -a in both cases (so that the name becomes masculine)
Both words were supposed to describe my tactics.
Of course, if you are not familiar with Spanish, then for you this should sound like the mysterious name of a fabled wizard, which I wanted!

To tell the truth, it was Faghetto Spaghetto who inspired me to create this nickname! :)

Really nice! Vacuum cleaner is a nice name for a wizard! Do you speak Spanish?

The Faghetto is a nice Spanish construction I heard from OwnagePranks (who doesn't really speak Spanish, I guess) who pretended to be Mexican and tried to call someone a fag.
