MAXimus DECimus MERidius

The full name of the Gladiator in the movie Gladiator. I watched it when it first came out and was blown away by the heroism and valor of the main character that Russel Crowe played. It was awesome and has stuck with me since. All my alts begin with "Max" and followed by some word that has meaning behind the class that is being played (for example, Maxhealer, would be a healer class of some sort).
Dylan is my first name.
Derp cause it's funny with a big tank swinging away at stuff like... "Derp, derp, derp!"

Usually name other chars on D3 by real names, IDK why.

I just really wish names were unique as they were on D2, now they mean !@#$ all.
Balthazar is supposedly one of the three wise men in the Bible. I wanted a Bible reference since this was Diablo.
My Wiz's name comes from the coolest sage that joins your party in FFII (aka FFIV)...the other toons have meaning too but this one is the only one I care to mention atm...
Barb is Zeus

his children..
Monk is Apollo
DH is Artemis
Wizard is Aphrodite

My demon hunter's name is MradrShields. it was too long for Marauder Shields. for those that have played Mass effect 3 know that (SPOILERS) before getting beamed up there is 1 enemy that lies in wait just before you stagger into the beam. It's a Marauder class enemy with shields.

for those interested :

He trained his entire life just for this moment, He missed out on the first 2 games to train.. just for the right moment. He lived as Marauder Shields and died as Marauder Health. Goodnight Sweet Prince ;_;

i started playing diablo right after i finished mass effect 3. and a demon hunter who trains to kill commander Shepard amuses me.

Arthain is my B.net name. I created it before there were internet browsers when all that existed were Bulletin Board Systems. I created it because I wanted to have a name that wasn't defined, a name that 'I' could define through my own actions.

I hate it that people have started to steal it for themselves since then.

My wizardess is named Vassilisa and that's based off the Head of the Church of Annihilatus from Taoru Majou no Index, an anime ^_^.
