Norin Nightfire is my main avatar in the virtual world of Second Life. He is a vampire, but not a bloodlines role playing vampire. He is also Gothic, unconventional (like me) and is everything I wish I was ideally.
But, he is not real but in a way he is, as he is me and I am he. Something only some of us who been on Second Life for a very long time will understand about our virtual selves and who we are. We take a good bit of making the character everything we want it to be, we put every bit of ourselves into them. And if one day we can have virtual bodies that we can inhabit, this is what we will want to be.
