Korppi means "raven" in Finnish. Raven is a kind of "totem animal" for me, although I don't have any religion. Ravens just are indefinitely cool in my opinion.

It's the name of an excellent Radiohead song that they took from Douglas Adams' The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, so it could be a reference to both my favourite band and my favourite books.

I do a lot of social activism which I can't talk about it much & that's how my username came along.

Originally it came years ago when i was thinking up a name to play Diablo 2 on, when i started playing multiplayer games. Seeing that i loved the Candyman films at the time, i decided on using that, but, alas it was taken. However, it was then that i decided to add the letters 'ic' to it, to become what it is today.

Normally i use plain Candyman, but if i can i'll use Candymanic

I am not a happy Bunny, i adore the word "Melancholy" and it is a very appropriate and accurate description, it also makes me smile, which is rather ironic.

Tanz is the name most of my online friends know me by. It is not that common (unless you are a female in the Phillipines, I have found out recently) so I use it on all the sites I go to.

Tanz Sixfingers is/was the name of my main character on the mmorpg EverQuest (1), and I created Tanz on EverQuest 2 as well, but they wouldn't allow me the last name as they said it was sexually suggestive (go figure!).

Tanz began as the main antagonist for my series of stories I am writing. He is a genetically-engineered orphan cum pirate who dances on th thin line between good and evil. All my stories are science fiction, so the names of my main characters are more along Star Trek or Babylon 5 lines, and EverQuest is a fantasy setting, so the first major character who had a name that would fit in fantasy was Tanz...

And now you know the rest of the story.

Because samurais rule, and Saxen is something like my cyber-name. Saxen means "strong sword", is a celtic name, and I like it.

Because it's my name, it's easy to remember, and easy to vary if I screw up somehow.
