For anyone who has randomly browsed the Kay thread/PPP, the reasoning behind my username should be obvious... For anyone who HASN'T, let me fill you in:
The Khanum is a character in Kay's Phantom (refer to my little text follower thing), and one of my favorite people in the entire book. I like to think she is the embodiment of evil... The Khanum is a ruthless seductress who taunts Erik with her sexual innuendo. :D She thinks his deformation is oh-so-sexy, and she just rocks my socks. She's my second favorite character...directly behind Erik, of course.

Well, my story behind my name is a complete lack of originality. I'm just an ordinary kid so I just slapped together names. I thought of phantom because it is my favorite movie, character and favorite actor who plays the phantom. Nemo is my nick name and I've had it since I joined cadets. This one sergeant thought it would be easier to remember my last name "Niemi"(its pronounced Knee-me hehe) so she called me Nemo in class. True Story.
Thank you KT, you are my SHERO!(Finally finished the best book ever, Phantom!)
Sadako: Is from the movie called 'Ringu'. Also from the book by Koji Suzuki that's simply called 'Ring'. Is the Japanese counterpart to the character Samara from 'The Ring'. Except she was cooler. So there. :3
Kurosawa: I got it from the game 'Fatal Frame', the scariest video game ever. I believe it also means 'black sheep' or something.
According to Altavista's Babblefish, my username means 'Gilt Dragon' in Dutch.
The story behind my username: I was in the Maritime Musuem at Frementle[Which is near Perth, Australia] and was looking at the ships and all the artifacts and stuff. [If I have not mentioned it before, I shall say it now. I'm kinda obsessed with ships, especially the Titanic and related ships but I also am interested in ships in general. ]Then I saw the 'Vergulde Draeck'[or some form of spelling similar to that] and started thinking it was an interesting name. Some months later, I was bored and was fooling around with babblefish. I had completely forgotton the name but somehow remembered the english translation and popped that in and out came 'Vergulde Draak'. Then I started using that as my name everywhere.
Gypsy -- I am just fascinated by gypsy cultures. I use the nick Rowan Mayfair quite often too because she's the main character of one of my favourite books (Anne Rice's books on the Lives of the mayfair witches. Rowan has such a strong personality).
