Where did your name originate from? What/Who inspired you to pick your CPI name?

Example: My name, Cal is taken from a character from an anime. My name is based on Cal Devens from the anime Requiem for a Phantom (which I HIGHLY recommend watching, it's in my top 5 favorite anime, if not my FAVORITE anime) And... here is what she looks like :)

I picked her character since her unfortunate journey perfectly portrays the suffering and eventual death of innocence as it rapidly ages by mental trauma and gets possessed by hate, and her story left a permanent mark on my heart. She is simply an unforgettable character.

On Dasher! On Dancer! On Prancer and Vixem! On Comet! On Cupid! On Donder and Blixem!



Side note - I never heard of that show. But she looks cute! And the story sounds important/heavy. :s

I don't actually know the origins of Rivaille. Too lazy to look it up at the moment. HAVENT HAD ALL MY COFFEE. SDFGDF

ANYWAYS.

Rivaille is Levi from Attack on Titan.
I'm not sure if it's a different translate or what but it's not his last name. People make that mistake often. His real name is Levi Ackerman.
At first Rivaille was just going to be a side account for rp but I ended up liking the name a lot. I still love the name Kinoko very much and the character but I have this thing with changing my user name... SORRY. D:

I was originally going to use Levi as a name but of course it was taken! xD
I actually like the name Levi and would consider actually changing my real name to it...

I chose Levi/Rivaille because
RPing as him is really fun actually. You get to be a jerk and it's okay because your just in character! LMAO
He's a neat freak. TBH, I really do like clean things. Sadly my room is just too small for Jager, I and all our junk making it impossible to clean.
He's not a big fan of people. Neither am I.
Loyal.
Shit talks. I mean literally.
He's 5'3" as am I.
Drinks tea often, tough I prefer coffee tea is good too. You take what you can get in the AoT world. They don't have much.
He has to protect Eren Jager as I have my own Jager to look after who also has a short temper and is a pain in my ass, BUT I LOVE.
Has a hard time explaining how he feels. (There's this one chapter he says some weird things to Eren where another character has to tell Eren what Levi really means.) I also have a hard time explaining things. I don't like to share how I'm feeling. There's very select people who I trust to talk about things with.

There's probably a deeper reason why I get attached to some characters. Maybe I'm just strange. I sometimes believe I have a split personality because I'm a Gemini. One is me and the other is the character I'm portraying. Although sometimes I believe the character I'm portraying is me.

WHO KNOWS.

Mine is. Actually pretty normal tbh.

When I joined CPI, I was into Warriors, and so my username started out as HolyKit, because when I read the books, I thought Hollyleaf, said HolyLeaf. For a long time. But I kept the name, until I reached my warrior name, which was HolyLeap.

Me being me, I liked to create new usernames whenever I had the chance. So, I went to my friend Marcy, (her real name), and asked her for some ideas. She liked the 'Holy' name, so she began to list some things that could begin with Holy. Then eventually, she came up with Kitten. And, I've had that name ever since.

I've had this username for about two years now, not wanting to replace it. I've shared a lot of memories over this username, and it makes me feel proud, seeing as for how long I've claimed it as my own.

I'm always so afraid to let go of this username. Afraid that someone might steal it, and claim to be me.

It might sound silly, but people have come to know me under this username. And I'd hate to change it.

I can't tell if that was a happy or depressing story-

Actually my old username Roflcopter has a bit of a bg behind it and its needed to explain jailbird sort of

I came up with it because I was shy and uncomfortable and had a hard time making friends. Roflcopter was something that made people laugh and I thought that maybe I'd stand out more as an individual with it, and I did.
But then negativity came along and I chose to change it to jailbird, to represent the shackles of reality and the feeling of being chained and caged, literally like a jailed bird. Jailbird represents my inner self right now, like Roflcopter once did.


And that's the real reason

Hi

i thought it came from Jailhouse Rock-

because-

'You should've heard those knocked out jailbirds sing'

and

'Number forty-seven said to number three,
"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company,
come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me."
