    Maybe this has been covered before ...

    I went with Illd_Saber because it's an anagram of my name (Brad Ellis). The Saber part was a no-brainer, the Illd part has no meaning.

    So, how'd you get your name?

    hmm....good question. I guess I got mine for obvious reasons as well. I am a paleontologist and a chick....
    Way back in the day I was trying to think up a good email address for myself (my very first email address ever!) for hotmail. I was into paleo, and was really into the Dixie Chicks at the time and thought "Dinochick" would be a fun play on that. It has since stuck and so I just bought the domain name and now get called "Dino" all over the place.

    I do not believe this has been covered before. I echo the previous entries. The screen name did not take much time to come up with. Other than the movies, my biggest passion about Star Wars is the toys. I still am out there buying all the figures, vehicles and anything else that looks interesting. The same goes for Star Wars comic books, Gentle Giant statutes and mini busts. I would still be buying the Simpsons toys but Playmates did not keep the rights to produce any more.

    I love the character Mirax Terrik from the x-wing books, and I was born in 1980.

    I've always been fascinated by Greek mythology and especially the hero, Achilles. I got a huge kick out of reading the Iliad and when the movie Troy was released I thought they did such a wonderful job of portraying him. He's someone who thinks for himself instead of blindly following ideas and attitudes just because they're common. He strives to be everything he can be and doesn't take any crap from anyone.

    It was at that point that I decided to name myself Achilles of Peoria since that's where I was living at the moment and now that I'm back home it's even more apt. I now have a tattoo of the Achilles Helmet on my right leg just barely above the ankle.

    Incidentally my high school was the O'Leary Spartans who use a similar looking symbol.

    Mine came from a Jedi padawan named Ulu Ulix. This came from the Boba Fett series-his master was a bothan by the name of Glynn Betti.

    I just squished Grand Admiral Thrawn together with Captain Gilad Pellaeon and mixed in a bit of misspelling as I didn't have the Thrawn trilogy with me at the time.

    That's actually a good thing I think. It's easier to read this way, and pronounce.
