I am—yet what I am, none cares or knows;
My friends forsake me like a memory lost:—
I am the self-consumer of my woes;—
They rise and vanish in oblivion's host,
Like shadows in love's frenzied stifled throes:—
And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed

Into the nothingness of scorn and noise,—
Into the living sea of waking dreams,
Where there is neither sense of life or joys,
But the vast shipwreck of my life's esteems;
Even the dearest that I love the best
Are strange—nay, rather, stranger than the rest.

I long for scenes where man hath never trod,
A place where woman never smiled or wept,
There to abide with my Creator, God,
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie,
The grass below—above, the vaulted sky.

— Clare, John. "I Am." [1]

Preface[edit]

Greetings! I'm Inc (or whatever else you'd like to call me — I'm open for any names). I usually stalk the Recent Changes page, looking out for damsels or gentlemen or pages in distress. Apart from this, you can find me adding high quality 4k equipment images and/or editing and documenting random things on the wiki. I'm usually always up for a chat, so don't hesitate to approach me if you need help or some guidance concerning wiki etiquette.
Things you don't care to know about me include: I like to keep (wiki-)business and personal matters separated, and as such am in favour of the Japanese concepts honne and tatemae, I enjoy taking things literally since I'm linguistically damaged (I like wugs), I'm bad with code, templates, and tables, I can be terribly inconsistent and ambiguous (although I prefer consistency), I am a hopelessly nihilistic and sarcastic pedant, further misanthropical by nature, "bubbly," overly "happy-go-lucky," boastful and "cute" speech irritates me beyond reason, I love MLA-formatted headings (every time I see a lower case letter I weep inwardly) and m-dashes, I cherish overly long and complicated sentences as they are awesome for confusing and irritating native and non-native speakers alike, I can be awfully random at times and when given the chance, and I have a thing for ellipses as it makes everything and everyone appear more dark and mysterious...

Favorite Profession 
Ranger tango icon 20px.png Ranger
Wolf has the cunning of the pack behind him. He imparts the virtues of loyalty, ferocity, and strength in numbers. When he came to me, he whispered of my heroic future and told me I would never be alone. When this user was still a kid, they had a vision. A Spirit of the Wild spoke to them and offered its guardianship. That Spirit was Wolf.
Ranger This user is a Ranger.

While the name suggests otherwise, I am female; further, German and in my mid-twenties. I love the English language for its vast offer of synonyms and beautiful words — because of this I generally play games, read books and watch shows in their original language (apart from the fact that I hate translations as they are most often too literal). Other than that, I really like wolves, which explains why most of my (game) characters are related to wolves in some way or another (pets, armour, names...). I enjoy reading (classics, (urban) fantasy, thrillers; manga), watching anime (with English subtitles) and playing video games (GW2 consumes almost all of my time though), my favourite genre being stealth action (Dishonored is an amazing franchise). I recently picked up knitting as well.

The Origin of My Username[edit]

Incarnazeus (pronounced /ɪnkɑːnazjuːs/ in English or [ɪŋkanat͡seʊs] in German) is an original character of mine. Contrary to my usual creations, he is one of the two flawless characters I possess — meaning that he is not sporting an exaggerated facet of my own personality. He is a good-natured, loyal, calm, and kind guy. What distinguishes him from other characters though is that Inc is actually a wolf. He belongs to the Eternal Pack, a pack of wolves following the goddess of the limbo-esque world Wanayseac. Incarnazeus the wolf dreamt of visiting other worlds, growing weary of the company of the goddess. He endured this ennui for quite a while, but he grew weaker with every passing year — both in spirit and in body. Soon he became known as "Dead-Eyed Dreamer". Deeply worried and concerned about the state of the wolf, the goddess decided to grant his wish and set him free — under some conditions. He would get the chance to visit different worlds — but each time he would be reborn as a new being, living his life until the goddess called him back home, leaving his reincarnated body to die. While living as reincarnation, he has no memory of his true existence as wolf of the Eternal Pack, yet when his time is up he remembers who he is, and returns home for a short while. Meanwhile, his true body retains only a few shards of his soul while he roams other worlds, to be able to execute his duties as companion of the goddess faithfully. Characteristically for Inc are his citrine eyes and the grey fur (or hair when in humanoid form). One can conclude from this back story (or better synopsis) that the Incarnazeus in Tyria is the current reincarnation of said wolf.
