Moran – Frickin’ Laser Shark

moran - frickin laser shark

Moran will go to any length to uncover his own identity. Some of his attempts may be doomed to failure, but at least he looks like he’s having fun.

Chanda – Guilty Confessions

chanda - guilty

We all know, Chanda is a bit of a wild girl. But what did she do to end up in prison? I’ll leave that to your speculations.

The purpose of this picture and post is Strawberry Singh’s guilty confessions meme

1. Inventory maintenance

While not as bad as Berry’s, I constantly wrestle with my inventory myself. I recently managed to get it just below 80k (79,329 as I’m writing this).

2. Shopping

Yes, I will admit it – I love my shopping sprees. Usually, I end up spending too much money on too many things I never use. Since I have started to blog, however, I took the chance to pull out some of these things, if only just for a picture.

3. Being insociable

If it’s not for a sale or event I want to look at, I hardly ever leave my home in SL, and I’m not very comfortable if I do. I’d never approach a stranger and it usually freaks me out a bit if someone I don’t know IMs me without a real purpose (like begging *sigh* or asking about stuff I’m wearing, etc). Same goes with (customer) IMs that are just like “hi” or “hello”, or even worse “Hi, I have a question.” and then… nothing.
Before this ends as a rant on its own… don’t get me wrong here. I’m not unfriendly (I hope), I’m just very shy. Once I had the chance to get to know someone, I’m fine talking to them or being around them. (HINT: If you want to get to know me, try not to scare me when we first meet.)

Heroes – Moran – The Ranger

Allow me to introduce… Leon Hyde

leon hyde

Name: Leon 'Jekyll' Hyde
Age: 37
Born: London, England
Occupation: Surgeon

Meet Leon Hyde! Wait, Mister Hyde? No, Doctor Hyde. For obvious reasons also called Jekyll by some of his friends.

With an English Father and a French mother, Leon grew up bilingual. At the early age of six, he started to play the piano, and it would become one of his greatest passions in life. As a child, he was rather small and timid, which caused him to be the target of mockery more than once.

Today, Leon is no longer skinny, but his kind and gentle nature has not changed. However, life has left both his body and soul scarred, and he has learned to be hard and cold as steel if neccessary.

When he was 17, he lost his brother in a motorbike accident, he barely survived himself. Leon still walks with a limp and while his clothes cover the scars on his leg and hip, his beard cannot quite hide the one on his jaw.

Leon complied with his dying brother’s last wish and became a doctor instead of a professional pianist. Today he is known as a brilliant surgeon who loves his job. He spends his little spare time playing the piano, listening to classical music or reading. To keep in shape, he does weight lifting, goes swimming and plays golf.

OOC information:

Leon cleary is one of my favourite characters ever. He was only created recently, but “came to life” very quickly. He is a bit different from my other characters, not only due to the fact he is more mature. I love to play contradictory characters that have many facets to themselves.

Allow me to introduce… Marten Zann

marten zann

Name: Marten Zann
Age: 23
Born: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Occupation: violinist

Today, I’d like to introduce Marten, an aspiring violin virtuoso from Amsterdam. Despite his young age, Marten is a widower.

He met Annie, the love of his life, in music school when they were still teenagers. As soon as Annie turned 18, they got married and moved together, but their luck only lasted two short years before Annie became severely ill and passed within weeks.

If you ever get to meet Marten, you will find him very reserved, maybe he won’t even talk to you. Please don’t take it personally. He does try to carry on, but his only comfort is his music.

The Music of Marten Zann

OOC Information:

I have debated for a while whether to introduce Marten as a character. His tragic story sure isn’t for everyone – and isn’t meant to be. Annie never existed as a character, though, she is just part of his tale.
On the other hand, and the reason why I did introduce him here, is the fact I love to use him as a model. Maybe I am the only one to see the pain in his eyes, but knowing about him, his story, helps me create a certain mood for some photos. I am not sure if that makes sense to anyone else, but that’s the way I tick.
Marten’s name is inspired by the main character of my favourite webcomic, Questionable Content, and the short story The Music of Erich Zann by H.P. Lovecraft. The story is about a voiceless violinist who keeps away demons with his music.

Marten’s basic looks:

shape: my own
skin: Fruk
hair: Sadistic Hacker
eyes: TheAbyss
beard: VCD
scar: Fruk
hands: Vika Design

Allow me to introduce… Corvus Szpiegel

corvus szpiegel

Name: Corvus Szpiegel (aka "the Kitteh")
Age: unknown (mid to late 20s)
Born: New York City, USA
Occupation: self-employed

As you can see, Corvus is a neko – a white tiger, to be precise. His whole body is covered in thick, soft fur, mostly white and light grey, with darker grey to almost black stripes. He has fluffy ears and a long tail, but his most prominent feature are his ice-blue eyes. Corv sports a small goatee-style beard. His hair is black, with a distinct blue in it, except for his white fringe.

The Kitteh usually is quite friendly, maybe a bit shy at first. Just don’t get the idea of touching or even pulling his tail! He may appear a bit clumsy and confused, but don’t take him for stupid! He may lack higher education, but is usually quite fast to grasp new concepts, if brought to him in a way he can understand.

Corvus spent most of his teens on the streets, after escaping from his abusive mother, but recently inherited property from a great-aunt he barely remembered. Now he lives in Mirror House, a cottage built by his German great-grandfather Erich Szpiegel. Corvus runs a small store called [hate this]. He sells mostly t-shirts, with the help of his assistant HT.

OOC information:

Corvus was the first character I created in SecondLife, on the account with the same username – yes, back then we had last names! When I first joined SL, I wanted to become a vampire, but changed my mind after being constantly griefed by vampire players during my first days on the grid. I was looking for a dark sounding name and didn’t want to use any of my previous nicknames for different reasons. I didn’t know you could reload the selection of last names. While Szpiegel may not be the most attractive of names in hindsight, it is fairly unique and grew on me. I have yet to meet another Szpiegel inworld.

The name Corvus could be translated to “mirror raven”. Corvus is the Latin word for raven and Szpiegel is very similar to the German word Spiegel, which means mirror.

Corv’s basic look:

shape: my own
skin: Nomine
hair: Sadistic Hacker
eyes: By Snow / Fairlight Industries (glow effect)
beard: Emortal Concepts (tattoo) / Atro Patena (attachment)
make-up: Delirium Style

nails: Love Soul (not seen in pic)
