My username is... my name.  Well, my nickname.  Terribly exciting, I know.
People kept misspelling my name (Caitlin) as Catlin for some reason, which is truncated to Cat, which led to Kitty.

Not steampunkish at all, but it's the name I use practically everywhere and it was available here, so I used it.

I am mad, unmarried, and live by a Holmesian philosophy. It seemed appropriate for me.


Oh, and by the by... Being a student of Latin, I must say I very much like "Magister".

Now, are you unmarried because you are mad? Or are you mad because you are unmarried? Or are you unmarried because you live by a Holmesian philosophy, or are you mad because you live by a Holmesian philosophy? Or! Or! I'm overstimulated, I need to put a brown paper bag over my head now. Sad


Now imagine the horror of clothing shopping. 39-32-39 and only 4' 10" is beyond annoying when clothing shopping. I want to know why clothing stores think all tiny women have huge hips in relation to the bust region.
I always have a nightmare when I try to buy a dress, I'm a UK size 8-10 and have a tiny back and waist but *ahem* a "generous" chest. So dresses that would fit me in the back don't fit me in the front, and dresses that would fit me in the front are like sacks! It's very annoying. I also get vexed that the petite clothing is for women from 4'11 to 5'3...That's a big difference! Petite things are always too long for me  Sad

*sorry to veer off-topic!*
I know! It's horrible trying to find a dress that fits! Err, wait a minute... I'm a guy. It's horrible trying to find shirts, and pants that fit! Even the shirts for 12 year olds are all too long, I don't like shirts that drape over my belt-line. I like it when my belt is visible without having to tuck in my shirt (fashion no-no!).

Thank you Miss Holmes. As you have guessed, I am quite the fan of Latin myself, though I wish I had a much greater grasp of it than I do.

And, might I add, that I quite like your name as well. Any friend of the great detective is a friend of mine.  Grin

I chose CapnSefina because I've been more interested in the Airship Pirate version of Steampunk and Sefina is an RPG character of mine that has evolved through bunches of different fandoms.

Jack Corvus is a main character in a steampunk line of stories I am supposed to be writing instead of hanging out on this forum. British aristocrat and Baron who learned magic from transylvanian vampire cult and later Taoist mages. He's currently having some dark-light yin-yang balance issues going on. 

Traveller from the early victorian period who comes out of the himalyas to find its 1920.


At any rate he's an alter ego persona for me, extremely dark type with the hero/anti-hero conflict going on.

Spionen means "the spy" in Swedish. It's a screenname I've been using ever since I was an exchange student in Sweden during high school. I also use SpyTrap, Empired, and occasionally even my real name, Sierra.

The (not-so-)good doctor has been a character in various roleplaying games I've run through the years.  He's become such a signature villian of mine that the first time that a reference that might even remotely be construed as being related to Dr. Oliver David Cross, even be it simply the initials ODC being seen on a canehead in the umbrella stand at a dining parlour, my players are known to respond in a manner consistant with being informed that one's execution date has been set.  As he's always, no matter the setting of the game, been a mad scientist of some sort, I figured he would be the perfect representation of my will on this site.

Horatio Holzbein has been my painting pseudonym since 1996.  The rationale goes something like this:

Quintus Horatius Flaccus (65BC to 8BC) was a Roman poet who influenced painters and artists not only in his own time (the time of Augustus) but later - thanks to many translations - artists from the Renaissance to the end of the 19th century (when classical studies started to fall out of favour).
His family name was 'Horatius' (which evolved into Horace, Horacio and Horatio).

+

Horatio has nautical overtones (Nelson, Hornblower, etc), I like the sea (I have a yachtmasters certificate). 
So that's Horatio accounted for.

Holbein was a painter.
Holzbein means 'wooden leg'
Holzbein would like to paint like Holbein but is disabled by unequal talent  Smiley

Therefore:  Holzbein is mildly smirkworthy! Grin

Altogether = Horatio Holzbein, is an artist with a sense of humour  - who likes the sea and would really like to be an 'artist-pirate'!
