AboutHi, I am Zancuno
I have been a Gaian since 2011 and SCAS since 2015
I am the Retired Leader and Founder of Lucario Armis though the Gaia branch is now retired. Lucario Armis lives on via Amino these days. Although lately Lucario Armis is slowly coming to a close on there.
I used to be an active member of the Pokemon Forum till around 2012, when I went on hiatus. I came back to Gaia sometimes around 2014 (maybe some logins in 2013) and saw the forum had changed to more of a constant battle, trade, and breeding request board. So it lost some spirit to me and I moved to communicating via guilds.
In 2014, I tried to revive the lucario community on Gaia based on a guild I saw that basically died out. I managed to run a revival guild on gaia for 2 years and moved it to amino for another 2 years (before amino got bad) before retiring.
I am a bit of a huge lurker to be honest, most of my Gaia experience is talking to friends or beta testing. Although I stop in frequently to Gaia so I am never gone for too long.
As for beta testing, I have been a member of SCAS (what we call the beta team) since 2015, I was initially brought in for Lake Kindred and have continued to test features for Gaia to reduce the number of bugs the public sees. Although I am under a NDA, so I cannot give you info on current projects or even some details of past projects.
As time passes on though, my activity on the site has majorly decreased as I try to find someplace to fill the gap of the many friends I have lost on here simply due to leaving the site. My endeavors for lucario related activity have not stopped though as I have contributed info to bulbapedia regarding origins and draw art every once in a while. As well I am the Developer of the Lucario Race mod on Starbound, so if you have that game, go check it out.
I am rather picky with my friends to be honest, since I have lost so many without reason most times as they left the site. Although it doesn't help that I am introverted. If you feel like talking to me, reach out in a public forum or send a PM at least first. Getting a random friend request for no reason scares me with PMs being scary as well but a bit less. Having some communication in public helps me know whether to be scared to talk or not.
Although if you have read to this point then that might mean some interest in who I am. You may have recognized my female look on a male avatar, and I can say that is on purpose. My gender is undefined and I prefer a female look. So the confusion is on purpose.
As well, yes my looks are derived from a lucario who has grown away over time. Although the fire that comes from my eyes has never changed. I've been Gaia's flaming lucario since 2012 and seeing that Gaia helped me find this identity, I don't intend to just shrug away my past.
