First off: No, not some anime character.

Two: A week ago i found out that Miki means beautiful tree, and tsu is part of the laws of iki. Tsu is sensibility, making me the sensible beautiful tree now. I hope Bizunizu doesnt mean anything bad lol.

Three: Yes, I am a Male Human.

Four: My old online name was at one time Mixed Business 13 (One of thirteen soldiers from concept art me and some friends made.

Five: Math class was where Mixed Business 13 became Mikitsu Bizunizu, using a learning japanese at home book.

I've always just used my real name since I'm known worldwide. In the early days of RO, my sister's name was also included, but I removed it when she stopped playing.

Maduk. A name sometimes confused to Mad UK. I invented it to be my name in Legend of the Green Dragon(one of the best roleplaying games ever). I just... invented it out of nowhere. Not related to Marduk.

A number of linguistic factors coming together in one short statement:

1) The philosopher. Although, as one flaming lad once didn't fail to point out, I know squat about his philosophy.

2) An obscene confirmation. As in... well, just pronounce it.

3) A statement describing my abilities. As in "I really can't do that."

4) A combination of those two above, resulting in an definition of self. As in "I, Robot". Uh.

5) A striving to have a semi-realistic nick, that could apply to both sides of the conflict. If not a little awkward for the Soviet side.

Aeneas= Reading a lot of the Classics i was always inspired by them but Virgil's Aeneid is shorter than Homer's work and slightly more action packed for me so i chose Aeneas.

2020= I had to come up with some concepts and back stories for a super hero for a project. So Aeneas2020 was a lab experiment gone wrong (highly original) since then the name stuck as something i use on all my projects.

I then moved into City of Heros where i used a similar name (played WoW under a similar name) while always using it for online Fps'. Later when i moved into modding i just continued to use the same name till i washed up here playing RO.

Old story.

Well there I was sitting back in the MOH/Vietcong days pondering what I would use for my new nick after about 1,000,000 people were using the same as my old one (Hunter/Killer).

So in moseys my red heeler (pictured here doing it for the Fatherland) and starts trying to grab my attention, nuzzling my leg and growling at me, trying to coax me into battle (this dog loves play fighting). So I look at her and think, hmmmmmm, red heeler??!!? No.... Red Dog, then I thought why not combine it into one straight word... Reddog and that was that.

Never seen another Aussie player using that name so I call it as mine, I do however see American players using Red Dog or RedDog after the beer, but hey it ain't the same as my name so I still call it mine.

I picked Slayer_2 for all my games and forum names but then I joined the RO Star Clan so now it's *Slayer_2. I picked Slayer_2 because Slayer didn't sound right and was taken and Slayer 2 was taken too.

The_Eagle had been my UT handle. When I played RO for a while, Anubis started complaining that my name was too generic. So I changed it to Murderous_Eagle and TKed him.

Tolkien nerd. I don't remember when I picked it, but if I had known that I'd eventually play a game with voice coms, I would have picked something easier to pronounce.

My favorite attempt so far is "more-gah-megal"


PS: I was a Tolkien nerd before it was cool. It's cool now...right guys?!

I'm referring to [CoR]Anubis that currently enjoys playing "The Ship" with his GF. Sorry if this comes across sexist, it isn't meant to be, but females play RO?

P.S. What a nice date, sprinting across a virtual battlefield well almost getting pepperd with bullets and returning fire with your Kar 98. Sooo romantic JK:D
