The most hidden kept facts about Speedy!
(Though SOME could be guessed. I suppose.) Also, the history of Speedy basically.
-The player's nickname Speedy came from a children's show. Very popular in Japan under the name of 'Kyattou Ninden Teyandee', it received slighty less but stilla lot attention in the rest of the world under 'Samurai Pizza Cats'. This name has also been in use for well over 12 years now. (Hence the romanji version I'm using lately, 'Suppeedi'.. my nick's OLD. O_o;..)
-The very first use of the name of 'Speedy' outside of a chatroom was in the game Furcadia. I didn't care that it was cats and dogs or whatever anthropologic character, I just thought it was a cool game in which I could walk around and talk to other people. My first roleplaying EVER took place there, and in a certain 'Dream' (a level made by the players) there was a script that allowed you to battle based on levels, and allowed you to name your own abilities. (P.S. despite the fact my nickname came from a robotic cat, I've always had a rat as my avatar in this game.)
-It was at this point that I started using electricity based moves.. I've always had a lot of imagination, so I invented moves like the 'Thunder Wave', or 'Thunder Beam'.. mind you, this is long before I KNEW about Chrono Trigger, even longer before I knew about Pokémon.. and despite my playing of Megaman, I had the Gameboy games and I was young. I never did quite knew about Elecman, even if I had beaten him several times before.
-This all eventually changed when I made my way to the internet even more, finding online comics, and my fandom of Chrono Trigger at this time had allowed me to expand my moveset with at least a sword. (Again, I didn't take ANYTHING from the original source aside from the name!) At this point I got to know about spriting and comicing and RP-ing in an IRC setting... at Bob and George's RP channel. Some of my 'weaker' moves originate from these RPs, and I found myself balancing my character after making him too overpowered.. Yeah. I was a beginner.
-Considering my creativity, I soon made my own sprite.. recoloring Quickman. I decided it didn't fit me, so I grabbed Megaman. Yeah. Rookie mistake, but back then it was 'okay'. I soon adjusted this green megaman sprite to have a similar V from Quickman, since I thought that was cool. This was definately the moment where my RP character was first defined. I actually had a huge bio back then, with pictures and everything, but it got lost in my several transfers between different sitehosts.
-It was also around this time that I ventured into #Captain_N. I was still into sprite comics, so soon after finding BnG I also found Captain N, and read it with alot of joy. My once-a-week status of visiting BnG soon became a 7-days-a-week status of visiting CN, and I met Hawkye there, and once more started RP-ing, defining more aspects of Speedy. His technological background at this point had been decided, but the elementalist state wasn't quite there.
-This soon changed after roleplaying a few times on Robotropolis Forums, from Strider's Mega Man Domain. Neither site exist anymore. (though there's 9-bit Productions now!) I soon created the 'Online Holographic Battle Imaging', or 'OHBI' for short. A disaster born to happen, this is the true basic of my RP experience. By this time, I had defined my character to the state he is now (although now he has more aspects due to the fact it's like 10 years furthur) and met Trey.. who I soon started RP-ing with actively.
-After RF's RP section vanished.. I had decided to make my own. At this time, I had found my way to the MegaMan EXE Board, or MMEXEB for short. I liked the games, and I liked their forum.. It was at this time I created the original 'Role Playing Zone' (I played Sonic Advance 3 at the time, and had my entire site in an 'Zone' status.. made it more fun, I thought.) It was at this point I started RP-ing with .exe characters, though that's a different story altogether. The original character 'Speedy' had at this point become.. slightly obsolete, but I never quite abandoned him. Fortunately, since when Hawkye returned, I obviously needed him.
-I do realize I'm skipping an entire forum. Some RPing happened there, but it was never quite the same. There's also Kaze's ninja school, but meh.
....Eh.. This changed from random funfact to a whole backstory. Meh.
