i am noticing some of you may have sad, exciting, or even triumphant origin stories for your names. if you like, you can also talk about your avatar (picture) origins. i'll go first: Ible is the name of a Grayling -- a species of shapeshifters, which all have similar (e.g. gray-skin and no feet) but unique physiology in their natural, un-shapeshifted state. Ible's unique feature is two jaws. Ible is also unique in that he can't shapeshift, but he may have powerful latent magic/psychic abilities (due to being able to speak two spells with his two mouths ). here's a super old sketch of Ible: Growing up, of course, Ible was teased for not being able to shapeshift, sarcastically being called "Ible the Able". (And "ible the unable" for the less sarcastically-inclined.) There's more to that backstory and backdrop, but we'll leave it at that for now.
