Solemn demeanor; apologizing in advance.

Wanderer, vigilante, dojo buster, all-around hunter of the supernatural, and proud Mythical Beast—which means should you have any resident ghosts in need of karate-chopping, my services are available.
A once inner-city youth who, having eventually escaped his concrete prison, never quite recovered from excursion's call.
Born during the year of the fire tiger—which means I'm old enough to have a pog collection buried in the dark corner of a closet somewhere far, far away.

I'm fond of all things botanical/mycological—particularly carnivorous or poisonous varieties. (Save the bees.)
I've been known to walk long distances and love to travel or explore areas isolated by nature. (Still waiting on Sean Connery to show up and tell me I'm immortal.)
I prefer damp weather, evenings, and look forward to autumn each year (follow moon phases).

Traditional martial arts in general are important.
Personally favor styles of kung-fu from northern shaolin's corner (i.e. táng láng quán, bā jí quán, shé quán).
Weaponry—excluding firearms—is a related interest: swords, spears, and the typical, but most anything flexible/thrown.
The hǔ tóu gōu, fēi zhuǎ, and sān jié gùn are priority, though I am comfortable with the fēng huǒ lún, jiǔ jié biān, and shuāng jié gùn.
Still getting the bullwhip down. (Does that count?)
Definitely a fan of the tired "blackbelt fights his way through a crime syndicate" cliché, but Jackie Chan's my hero.
Favorite series' of his being the Drunken Master (Snake in the Eagle's Shadow, etc.), Three Dragons, and Armour of God films—Van Damme would be my runner-up.

There wouldn't be much left of me if you removed mythology or classic horror from my life.
I'm fascinated with archaeology and paleontology (Smilodon's my favorite animal).
Fan of the classic Universal monsters and jiāngshī (Chinese vampire), my favorite older film being either Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror or Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man.
Into the vampire hunter theme (e.g. The Lost Boys, Van Helsing) or fighting the undead in general—certified Ghostbuster.
Army of Darkness > Evil Dead II, and Krueger > Voorhees—that's the hill I've chosen to die on.
Naturally, anything Halloween-themed has my bias: jack-o'-lanterns/scarecrows, awful movies like The Monster Squad, and video games like Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
Yes, I've seen Little Shop of Horrors (1986). Can't stand musicals; original ending was better.

I like video games—favorite series of all being Castlevania. I'm 8-bit generation, but my fondest memories growing up are probably with the Super NES, PlayStation (1), and wasting quarters at local arcades.
Mostly play fighters (Neo-Geo fan at heart)—favorites being The King of Fighters and Darkstalkers. (Also into Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, Street Fighter, Virtua Fighter, Tekken, Soulcalibur, Battle Arena Toshinden, and Mortal Kombat.)
That genre aside: Double Dragon, Final Fight, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man, and Legacy of Kain are worth mentioning (or nearly any beat-'em-up/metroidvania).
Although I'm somewhat particular concerning RPGs, I like most Final Fantasy and SaGa titles. (Final Fantasy V, Secret of Evermore, and SaGa Frontier are my top three.)
Pokémon was a thing upto the end of Generation V (Blue/SoulSilver Ver. tied as my favorite for different reasons). I predominantly trained grass and ghost types.
As far as comicbooks or manga go, I probably like Wolverine/X-Men and YuYu Hakusho more than someone should.
(Also into Blade/The Midnight Sons, Chakan: The Forever Man, Hellboy, Vampire Hunter D, The Slayers, and Outlaw Star.)

Music is a difficult subject. This hardly covers everything but my favorite bands are Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Type O Negative, The Crüxshadows, KoЯn, Gravity Kills, Nightwish, Orgy, A Perfect Circle, and She Wants Revenge.
I'll listen to nearly anything mid '80s-mid '90s, or most rock subgenres (throw in a pipe organ and I'm set). Otherwise, anything mellow like darkwave/trance, or whatever heavy on bass/synth.
My favorite television series is either Highlander, Sliders, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel (though I've watched a lot of Robot Chicken). MotU, Inhumanoids, Visionaries: KotML, TMNT, and Mighty Max are some of the earliest things I can remember being into, but haven't checked on in years.

As much of a sword & sorcery/Tolkien enthusiast I may be, I don't read novels regularly. Played D&D v3.5 once (drunken master prestige class).
Best fictional weapons are the flying guillotine, vampire killer, and soul reaver. Best mythical creature is the manticore.
My favorite colors are purple and grey, respectively (though many things I seem to like are green). I wouldn't be here today if not for spicy food—namely Mongolian BBQ.

Value personal honesty; not much else to know.
