I’ve had a couple of people ask about it so I thought that I’d explain it. I don’t like to post actual photos of myself because I’ve had a real life stalker and I don’t want him to be able to find me again. Despite the somewhat blood thirsty nature of some of my posts (like issuing side arms to everyone over 18 who isn’t a) insane or b) a criminal), I’m really very peaceful by nature. I don’t relish the thought of having to kill someone and I feel in my bones that this is what would ultimately happen. I’ve been chased down the road more than once by him with him attempting to run me off the road or cause me to crash. I had my car set on fire on my birthday. He’s threatened me more than once. We’ll just say that there’s a lot of history there that makes me think he’d try to kill me and that I’d end up having to kill him in order to protect myself. However, I’m digressing…..
Back to the icon… Once upon a time there was a very popular game called Neverwinter Nights. NWN came with an absolutely awesome modding kit to allow you to build your games using their engine. As a result, the gaming clan that I was in at the time wanted a custom mod. A small group of us went off into our digital corner and cooked up a gigantic mod based on Celtic mythology. In case you hadn’t guessed, I’ve been using the handle Morrighu for some time. It’s a slight corruption of the name of a Celtic goddess. Morrigu is the celtic goddess of war and she’s also a red head, like me. So my character became the BBEG (Big Bad Evil Guy) that ultimately had to be defeated to “win”.
The icon that you see is a screen shot of the BBEG from that module.
