My middle name is Alexander. I always was more fond of my middle name, than of you first name (which is Boris btw). "Lexan" is a part of Alexander. I added the second "X" to make it more unique.

On other fora and computer games, I don't use this names, since I invented it the day I joined. I use the names, "Lord Alexander", "Alexander Lakely" or "Lord Lakely" there... (so if you encounter someone with these name elsewhere, CH for example, it's me ) (Lakely is a rough and very far-fetched translation of you surname)

Taurucis is a name that's stuck with me for quite a while (About 4 or 5 years now I think?) It basically came from blending consonant sounds that I liked together.

The "Lady" part is there because everyone thinks I'm male... and I'm not a guy

Well not yet.

If you stick around the heroes community a little you might figure exactly what I mean.

But yep, I definitely didn't think you were a guy when I saw Lady Taurucis.  I like the sound of it too.

Edited by Keksimaton at 16:19, 09 Jul 2008.

I have gotten some comments that I have one of the weirdest nicknames around here and I thought that since I am kind of active in the forum today (I am propably trying to make up for my inactivity for I have been travelling all around Finland and kept company to a cousin who had come for a visit.) so I decided to write the story of my nickname, wich is quite long actually.

Once upon a time there was a country far to the north where they speaked an extremely complicated language said to be the 3rd hardest to learn in the world. There lived a nerd who was sick of bad translations of movie titles such as "Murder by Numbers" wich is a figure of speech for "perfect murder", but was tranlated into "Numero murha" wich means a murder by numbers LITERALLY (a better translation would have been "Täydellinen Murha") and many many more bad translations. One day the nerd watched "The Untouchables" which means a group of people who can not be bribed and surprisingly it was translated succesfully into: "Lahjomattomat". That same day the nerd was making an account for playing Warcraft 3 online on Battle.Net. The nerd was thinking of what to use as a nickname. The nerd thought, pondered and meditated untill he thought about bad movie title translations and laughed when he thought that "The Untouchables" could have been translated into: "Koskemattomat" wich means a group of people who can not be touched or have not yet been touched. He then chose "Koskematon" as his nickname (an untouchable person or a person who has not yet been touched). He later on started using it as his nickname in many places and changed his nickname into Koskematon in the internet forums which he inhabited. One day someone said to him in IRC: (Internet Relay Chat) "Senkin Keksimätön!" (Roughly translated into "You Uninvented/Uninventful!") wich propably was supposed be an insult for not being able to think of good arguments and funny things. The nerd thought that "Keksimätön" was even better than "Koskematon" for "Koskematon" might easily be misinterpeted into something else than what the nerd had originally thought. Later the nerd decided to internationalise it by replacing the "Ä" and "Ö" letters with an "A" and an "O".

And that is how the nerd came to use the nickname: Keksimaton.

                                                      -The End-

You might not believe it kids, but I am the nerd from this story . Untill next time when I tell you the tale of the nerd thinking about things like racism and cencorship. Good Night.

Username

Hello! My username came from the famous or rather, infamous character from mythology, the succubus, Lilith. There were countless myths about her but possibly the most famous is that she is a beautiful demon who adbucts and eats children and lures men to produce more of her kind.

First encountered the name of this character in this game I'm playing.

It also comes from a line of printers and copy machines.  Just thought I'd share that with you.

There was a very cool Lilith in a Piers Anthony book in the Incarnations of Immortality series.

Unless I've remembered her name wrong, but she was definitely a succubus type.

I'll be sure to check that out. Interesting enough, mythological creatures from all ethnic tales have become quite famous and have contributed largely to modern literature/entertainment. Say, in the case of Lilith, she has appeared in Marvel vs. Capcom series and even Succubus/Succubi are available in Heroes V!

P.S. I like your avi. Personally, I think the design team did a great job on the overall outlook of the peasant; especially on those weapons they're holding (the staff thingy).
