    you know I thought I recognized Autolycus from somewhere, but it's been just hovering at the edge of my memory. Where is the name from?

    I thought about grabbing Enkidu, but when I saw we had a Gilgamesh I thought that would be too corny. [​IMG]

    according to Homer : "Autolycus was the most accomplished thief and perjurer in the whole world..." (from The Odyssey)

    He was said to be the son of Hermes, but most of you would recognise him for Bruce Campbell's portrayal in Hercules and Xena.

    My name is derived from two different words... Jake and man. According to historical references it means, "Jake is the man," hence "Jakeman." [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Mine were as follows:
    My lvl 41 necro: Casus-Latin word for death.
    It was said by Sparticus just before he died.
    "Casus et liberate" (Death or freedom) [​IMG]

    My lvl 64 pally: DunAzrael-He was one of the three Archaic Deities that supposedly guarded the chalis of Christ; the Holy Grail. He was the one who tried to steal the cup, but wound up killing his brother and running away, leaving only one angel to protect the chalis.

    my name is historical too. It comes from the Roddenberryian era in the late 23rd century. It is made up of the names of two heroes from that glorious time long past. If you rearrange the letters, it spells "spork ick" or "sick pork"

    Olon was the name of one of the neanderthals who made the cave paintings in pre-historic europe... but I can't prove it. [​IMG]

    Queen Zita - 1892–1989, last empress of Austria and queen of Hungary.
    It's also my middle name (just added an extra t). Oh, and if anyone of you don't know yet, I'm female for real, so it's ok for me to have girly name. Not that it would matter anyways.

    ------------------
    It's too bad she won't live, but then again who does...
