I actually used Dracas instead of Dracus, but for the forums at MMORPG.Com, I used Dracus to avoid direct association to my character and handle in SWG.

Short history of Dracas:

- Originally created as the Weapons Officer of a starship I controlled in a PBM (Play By Mail) game, derived from B.A. Baracus (Mr. T in the A-Team).
- Later evolved to Dracas The Heartless, Gun Runner and Smuggle for a table Star Wars RPG group I was with.  So named, for having an artificial heart; not really for his persona (though would play it up sometimes).
- Used as my primary characters for both Everquest and Star Wars Galaxies.

 I became a role player sometime in '93-'94 at the behest of Kinneas (he thought rp'ing together would be a hoot). K'suan'indra was the elven thief created right before the grand DM of Salinas was to arrive in the hellhole of Ridgecrest. She faired reasonably with a rookie player, but left in the hands of her co-creator she was promptly bitten by a werewolf. The saving throw was made and no going furry for the tapered ear girl.
 Subsequent rambling took her through Prodigy, BBS boards, The BlackDragon Inn and AOL, then a time of lying low until Kinneas asked her if she wanted to come play in the stars.
 Why K'suan'indra? Sounded cool...

I first got it when I first signed up on Filefront. Some people shortened to SFC3. Thats how I got it.

PS: I did also get it from the game StarFleetCommand3.

  I'm not sure why it stuck on me the way it did, but it was the name of trek novel I read a long time ago, I can hardly even remember what the story was about now. I do remember that it was the second book available for purchase in a new line of star trek stories, which until then there was only books of the TOS shows, and Alan dean fosters captains log series based on the animated trek shows at that time.

RifleMan80 - My name was based off of my old Medal of Honor Allied Assault name RifleGuy. Reason, I believe that Rifles are the ultimate weapon a person can have. The rifle is his friend and it requires great skill to use. So in 2004, I changed my name to RifleMan80 in Bridge Commander, my former name in BC was Draken. The 80 stands for the fastest speed I ever driven when I got my license,  80mph.

Hmmm... this is an old thread.

When I signed up on my first Star Trek forum, I wanted Warbird as I liked Romulan Warbirds but it was already taken. Since I also like the Borg I decided War-borg. I also like cars and own a Mustang and PT Cruiser so on car websites I use PTSTANG. Since then I decided to stick with Warborg and I use it everywhere now even on non-star trek sites.

Over at STO online someone else took Warborg so I use OriginalWarborg there.

Warborg... Thats a pretty good alternative!
