Lived the best and seen the worst,
But the only way I know to finish is to finish first!"

My name is Thorn. Atrox around these parts. I am hard to pin down.
I am a bleeding heart liberal, yet I hate political correctness gone wild. I believe in courtesy and the golden rule, but I am aggressive and argumentative. I like early morning, springtime, the songs and smells of the natural world. I like the weird, the macabre, the freakish. I love taking long walks, and having adventures in the great outdoors just as much as I love to shut myself away in a dark room, with just myself and a good video game. I am a perfectionist who struggles with this, knowing that perfectionism is in many ways the enemy of true perfection. Some would call me a hipster, others a special snowflake, yet others would say that I don't have the lifestyle of a hipster, and I'm too well-spoken and practical to be a snowflake. I say that I am all of the above. Take the good with the bad, find your own path, and make your life one that you are happy with. What is the point of living a life that you find out too late is not yours after all, but a life based on the subjectives of any given society?
Pretentious, motivational speech over.
I am just your average woman looking to find her way in the world. My passion is my art. I draw (frequently), write (occasionally), and sometimes I like to build s**t. My real love, however, is my characters. At heart, I am a character designer. I am introspective with myself, and I like to learn what makes people tick, to figure out where they're coming from; a sort of layman's psychology, if you will. With that, my characters, Lex and Feran Pravi specifically, are my pride. In their own indirect influence, they have made me laugh, cry, and throw fits of rage. I initially conceptualised them in late 2001, and they have been going strong ever since. Feran Pravi is my muse. It is his story that drove me to this project, and it is the thought of doing this character, through whom I learned about my own fears and desires, the justice that he deserves, that drives me to continue to this day. Lex is my conduit. Love her or hate her, she is my eyes in the story, who drives the plot along, whose thoughts and experiences mold the themes into the concepts and ideas I designed at the core. Perhaps it is strange that I dedicate half of this profile, and most of my journals to these two, but in a way, to know them is to know me. If they can affect other people even a fraction of how much they affected me, I will have done my job right.
