Who is Draggor?
Draggor is the internet alias that I chose for myself when I first began using the
internet. I've stuck with that nickname for 3 years, and I don't plan on ever changing
it; many people know me more by that name than by my real name, and to change it would
cause a great deal of confusion.
My Rights to the Name
The reason why I chose this name is because it is an original name that I came up with
in 1994, three and a half years before I had any contact with the internet whatsoever.
I came up with Draggor as the name of a fantasy town where the residents worship the Dragon God.
The town of Draggor will appear in my future game Dragon Trek.
I have found a few references to the name Draggor used by other people, my claim to this name
is legitimate, and easily backed by proof. I have unofficially copyrighted this name as my
intellectual property, and I believe that my claim to it goes back further than most references
to it that I've found on the internet. If this is not the case, at least it can be proven that
my conception of the name is unrelated to the other claims, and indisputably mine as much as
it is theirs.
Draggor as a Character
As a character, Draggor represents a compliment of myself. Where I rely on intelligence
more than on strength, Draggor is the opposite. His form is that of an anthropomorphic dragon.
I believe a dragon to be a mixture of the best physical traits of many animals. As a humanoid,
Draggor also possesses human intelligence, emotions, and capabilities such as speech and the ability
to use tools and weapons; he belongs to a species that I have named Drakotar. As a Drakotarian,
Draggor represents my "all around" nature.
Another way in which Draggor is opposite to me is the fact that he is a warrior. Though
I myself do sometimes feel the instinctual urge to fight as a result of anger, I never act
on such feelings. Draggor is someone who does not fight out of anger or vengeance, but rather
out of passion and humbleness.
Draggor is similar to me in his loyalty to companions and his selfless nature. He has a
firm but dynamic code of honour and morality.
