My account name: Basically my first name and my second gamer alias abbreviated. It was Hellwolf_36.
Kurisu (Barbarian): It is my first name in katakana Japanese. I got it from an old friend of mine (we stopped being friends when we got into a fight over political beliefs of another individual and s/he refused to cooperate and solve the problem my way) who went through an otaku phase and kept calling me Kurisu or Kuris-chan when he wanted to talk to me. When I left for college and took a Short Story workshop class, I was hooked on 2 things: Inuyasha (thanks to Sango) and Warcraft III (under Okamizu_sama). I didn't write a fan-fic, but I wrote a short story called The Blood Stone. In it, Kurisu, a half-elven woman lives with her 2 brothers, one of them is a lonesome crybaby and the other is an alcoholic. They became like this when their father and mother were murdered by a demon tyrant who wanted a spellbook written by a Drow who was living in their hometown. When the demon lord does a direct attack, Kurisu uses an artifact called the Blood Stone to kill him and herself in the process, saving both parties from tyranny, but also in a dark way, teach the brothers a dark lesson about life. After this, I couldn't really get that name or character out of my mind. Pretty much any RPG I play has a character named Kurisu and is usually some warrior or melee style mage that brings anything to their knees. The first incarnation in gaming was Phantasy Star Online. I had a HUnewearl armed with a Tsumikiri J-Sword, Excalibur with Hit and some other cool weapons. But she was lost to hacking and I lost the drive to recreate her after my friend Terence quit playing and the admins on the server were being jerks. I had a Lord Knight on Ragnarok Online as well, but the main server was scamming for payment to prevent me from making a Rune Knight and the 3rd party servers were all being played on modified rates that weren't my cup of tea. Now on Diablo 3, she is a barbarian with Skorn (should have been Grandfather since the Blood Stone and PSO incarnations used massive swords, but CC was more important than damage% on Weapon Mastery) and the power to bring down any opposition on mp5-7.
Shilf (Wizard): Back when I played Phantasy Star Online with 2 friends, one of them quit the game because he whined and cried about he and my other friend kept getting items because we knew what we were doing and played more often. He primarily put the blame on his Section ID: Bluefull (which he dubbed Bluefail). How the IDs work is it assigns each character a number, it then sums up all the character values in the name, adds a modifier based on the class and the result's one digit is fed into an enumerator variable and the outcome is your ID. The ID mostly had spears, but it had a few nice high end items that could be traded, like Imperial Picks or v801s. In vengeance and anger, me and my friend decided to create Bluefulls of our own and call ourselves Team Bluefail. My friend made a HUnewearl named -Lightning (was a big Dissidia fan at the time)
and I tried every name I randomly thought of. Until, I had a random spark of my memories. Back when I was around 12, I played my first RPG: Quest 64 (yes I said it!). The game was crap overall: Very linear, bad graphics and very repetitive, but I beat it 5 times. On the way to the desert regions, inside the Baragoon Mine, you fight a 1000 HP boss named Shilf, who was a sorceress who served Mammon, the "main villain" of the game. So I typed that into the ID generator and got Bulefull on my FOmarl (A human female force or wizard). We decimated the game with our 2 bluefulls and got some ok things, but it helped to have other characters to twink them. I played Shilf melee style and my most common weapons were light-saber staffs like the Double Saber. But as time went on and roleplaying (which I did a lot on Phantasy Star Online) got better, she pretty much got an identity of her own. I took her with me to Diablo 3 and created a Wizard that uses Blizzard and Spectral Blade as main modes of offense, kind of like how I fought with my characters on Phantasy Star Online.
PinkalHUmar (HC Barb): In Phantasy Star Online, it was the worst combination of Section ID and class you could have. HUmars were good, but they were balanced and needed to be geared and Pinkal was nothing but staves and Force equips. The trend of Pinkal HUmar sucking was mainly because of all the characters named Sephiroth on a private server I used to play on; the game's forum pretty much had a 4chan/Final Fantasy fanboy base. I quit because the server got hacked, which I lost my best character, my good gear and the admins refused to reimburse for the damages (especially worse when one of them had a flipcase over it). It was created in honor of my friend Terence, who was the only one who managed to make a Pinkal HUmar willingly and did well with it.
MrButlertron (Monk): A character from a show called Clone High. A friend of mine on Diablo 3 has a character named Scudworth, who was the principal at Clone High. We did our characters together at the time.
DoomGuy (DH): Doom Guy from Doom. Duh!
Doreflum (WD): An enemy in Ys Origin. It looks like a flower that shoots out seeds. If approached, it explodes, releasing toxins that virtually does what the Malboro of Final Fantasy is capable of: All 4 status effects.
