Behind the mask of.... Shaw Rayne
Have you ever wondered if the person behind the character is exactly the same as their IG self? Like: does Faolan really love animals? Is William Mortdecai the reason why rum is always gone in real life too? And how about Lukrezia? Does she secretly adore pineapple pizza? Well SoMe is here to reveal some of the similarities and differences! This week Odessa tripped over a very strange looking shrub. After taking of his disguise the Head of Warriors camp made it up to her by answering the questions she had.

Shaw Rayne
DoB: June 2nd

Job: Head of Warriors

Favourite plants: Elephant-Foot Yam and Bear's-Head Tooth Mushroom

Favourite movie series to binge watch:

Lord of the Rings, each slain orc gives me pleasure beyond the words of mere mortals. Their eviscerated bodies in a great conflagration of carnage and destructing bring forth the truest sense of paradiso.

Favourite WoW book in the archives: Adventures of Wormmeat (its a classic, such a talented author)

Favourite WoW class: Canine Training (that ole Canine Trainer was somethin spicy)

Favourite disguise: You would like to know wouldn’t you…. *shrubs away*

Weirdest gift you've ever given someone: A half-eaten carrot wrestled away from a particularly dapper looking gopher.


DoB: June 2nd

Job: University Teacher & Working with Adults with Disabilities

Favourite plants: Watermelon, only damn plant I need. Its a weapon, a food, a hat, and can even be used to barter for the occasional sandwich.

Favourite movie series to binge watch:

Probably still the Lord of the Rings, gets me panties all ruffled up when I see Sauron get jumped by a gang of hobbits.

Favourite WoW book in the archives:

Probably the Staff Book, gives the opportunity to learn 100% truthful information about our secretive staff.

Favourite WoW class: Definitely Canine…. Kaia is sitting right next to me and you think I would risk having a separate answer? HA! No, my life is too precious to the human race.

Favourite disguise: As a smart person! Har had yee all city folk all thinkin i be usin them learned word with some sort fancy collage education, been here disguised the whole time mussin be some sort a spy er somthin!

Weirdest gift you've ever given someone:

A  live lobster… on a leash. There was also a watermelon there so it was a good time.


Hm, I would say both IG and IRL I can be rather absurd. My vernacular and manner of speech are similarly a bit odd. Shaw and I are pretty similar in almost every regard, I even have a real Kaia. Behind the absurdity in both instances is a calculating and intelligent paragon of plotting and revolution...


The major difference is that IRL Shaw is not married to Kaia...yet… (Dessa: you heard it here first people, he's going to put a ring on it!)

I would say Shaw is also likely a bit more social than I. Even if IG me has never been the most social, IRL me prefers my silent contemplations to busy and bustling gatherings to a greater degree.




FC: Paul Wesley



The year was 1972, I was just a wee lad just out in the highlands keeping an eye on the family folk. Spring it was, the winter snows had given way to chilled streams that slashed and crossed through the busy countryside. A short winter it had been, but I recall that we were glad nonetheless at the parting snow. 


As I patrolled through the northern ends of our land, I caught just a glimpse of a herd of wildebeest charging forth towards my home. Fearing for my flock of helpless sheep, I stood before the stampede and with a most vigorous wag of my finger, the herd parted before my eyes. Our neighbors' farms were both decimated by the freak stampede but due to my bravery, my family’s wee cottage remained unscathed…

I also have four degrees, four pets, four feet (if you count hands), and four letters in my name… a coincidence? I think not.
