    If you want to know where my username is, read Elfstones of Shannara, by Terry Brooks. Better still, read Elf Queen of Shannara. Then you'll find out. Wing Riders, explorers of the skies. Oh - and read Voyage of the Jerle Shannara! You must read all his books, for my sake if nobody else's!!!

    Once at school I was called Schmavid and it sort of stuck when I went to my first forum. It's been with me ever since.

    Actually my nickname is pronounced "Fee-nee-kas" and in Greek it means Phoenix.Phoenix also the way it pronounced in english comes directly from Greek,because you see in ancient Greek it was "Phoenix"(Φοίνιξ).But in modern Greek it's mostly called Fee-nee-kas.Foinikas is latinized version of "Φοίνικας" using greeklish(greek with english characters).

    I got this nick from a story that I had written back in the last year of school where the main hero was called that and the story became so popular that people started calling me Foinikas or Phoenix.Then I started putting it as a nick when playing Counterstrike with my friends and still have it until now.

    Mine is one of my RP characters that I made up. His name is Caligo and he's the Captain of his own pirate ship. So Captain Cal for short.
