BatMud Interviews

-- Klerris --


From Shadowjack's "Names Project" a nubmer of years ago:



What's the origin of your name?



Well as for Klerris, the story behind that isn't all that special.
I once flicked through a book called "The magic of Recluse"
but L.E. Modessit Jr, and the name Lerris caught my eye. 
When my friend introduced me to Batmud, Lerris popped 
into my head straight away.  But I didn't choose it for some
reason...for some reason I wasn't happy with it.  So I just sat
there at the computer typing Lerris over and over again trying
to get a feel for it, when I typoed and entered Klerris instead.
As soon as I saw Klerris come up and the screen it was like
a sign from the Heavens ;)  

I created my character 10 minutes later.

My surname (Kira'athu) took a LONG time to come around.
When I reached level 10, I was under the newbie impression
that surnames were permanent, so I was determined to make
sure I found once that I'd never get sick of.  I spent almost 
an entire year looking through books and things to try and 
think of a good name.

Finally I saw something in a book (can't remember the book's 
name), which was something along the lines of Kirathu, or 
something similar, and I started playing with that.
Another 4-5 months of fiddling around with different
combinations of that name, I eventually came up with
Kira'athu, and loved it. It seemed to fit so perfectly so I decided
to keep it =)

But what's the funniest, is that Kira'athu is actually a 'rendition' of
an ancient Celtic word (can't remember the actual word sorry) 
which means 'healer'...and at the time I was a healer, and I've been
a healer for 2/3's of my mudding career. 

Heh, so that's my story =)
I love my name so much, that I actually use it in rl sometimes...a lot
of people know me only as Klerris.
