Mine comes from Xiahou Dun. Historical figure, general, governor, warrior, and adviser during the Three Kingdoms period of China, about early 3rd century AD. When I was growing up, the first Strategy wargame I ever played was Romance of the Three Kingdoms. I always played as Cao Cao, my friend RJ played as Sun Jian, and our friend Ryan played as Liu Bei. We were around 10 I think at the time. Well, Cao Cao's most bad ass General was Xiahou Dun, and when you are 10 eyepatches are cool too. As the years went on, and playing every new installment of Romance of the Three kingdoms that came to the states, and reading the novel and other histories, I became a big fan of the time period. Well, when that internet thing got big, and I joined gaming sites, I chose the user name "Xiahou Dun". Eventually over the years is morphed into Lord Xia. I have accounts at some sites that are over 12 years old using that name.
