Rowde wrote:Rowde is just the name I use everywhere.

Originally, Rowde was a character I made up for a text-based, sci-fi RPG I played via Telnet. I was part of this telepathic, jellyfish-looking alien race. One of the attributes of my race was that we were suppoesed to have really long, asexual names that could be shortened into a nickname of sorts. My full name was Rowdethiclurum, which was shortened to Rowde. It had very little specific meaning at the time, I just noticed that there were very few characters in my race with names that started with "R." Initially, I pronounced the name (ro day), as if it were spelled Rowdé. After a while I didn't like that and decided to just pronounce it as (roud).

That is also the name of a character from Suikoden2.... the Captain.

When I first played Dynasty Warriors 3, I hated Zhang He. His constant "beauty" quotes grated on my nerves so much I wouldn't even play with him. Well, then one day I accidentally chose him instead of Zhen Ji. I played the match anyway and discovered he was actually an awesome fighter. I later found a topic at another board discussing Zhang He, in which someone posted a theory that he wasn't just some funny gay guy; he was a bloody psycho who sees killing as an art form. The quote about "paint(ing) that ugly fort with their blood" is a pretty good testimony to that.

Yes, I realize DW3's version of Zhang He is ficticious and the real Zhang He never did a downhill charge like falling blossoms, but he's a fun and interesting character anyway. So my name is about his psychotic obsession with beauty.

I'm named after what's left over from smoking a certain green leafy substance...but indirectly, and unfounded, too. :wink:
