Greetings Riders,

My name is Hibiya, some of you may know me from the early CBT days. I'm a proud fake gamer and geeky nerd, probably as a result of taking a wrong left turn through a wormhole near Defera a long time ago in a galaxy very much our own. I don't play much and I'm very much a filthy casual that needs to git gud, but, I do my best to be #TeamPriest. And although I don't live there anymore, I'm still proudly #TeamEU and a Ravenclaw.

Some of you may know me from being a moderator on another Nexon title, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - First Assault Online using the IGN of xochild. I completely fell in love with Icarus during the CBT and I'm very excited to be majorly back in the game after a series of breaks and a lot of lurking on the forums and Discord helping out as a moderator. I consider myself to be a very patient, considerate, and ethical person, and I both value and take pride in my objectivism; I will generally remain objective (unless you ask me if Logicomas are better than Tachikomas).

There is a story behind both IGNs, they're not random, so if curious, feel free to ask. Can't promise they're engaging stories though.

My character on Baellas and her cat, Tachikoma:

  • Ground mount: My Calico Cat Tachikoma
  • Aerial mount: My Songbird Roucool
  • Class: Priest
  • Games: Probably mostly MMOs such as Star Trek Online and Star Wars: The Old Republic, or the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, or the Gran Turismo series, or Sleeping Dogs (Definitive Edition because DLC and bug fixes); actually, Remember Me and Life is Strange(: Before the Storm)
  • Colour: Purple
  • Anime: Bubblegum Crisis (the original), Ghost in the Shell is a close second, (original) Blame!, Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, Pokémon...even if I haven't played a game since Crystal. If interested, my list of manga and anime on Kitsu
  • Television programme: Off-hand, I'd say Buffy Stargate: Universe
  • Film: I'm not one for films in general and hardly ever go to the cinema, but, maybe Streetcar Named Desire with Vivien Leigh
  • Hobbies: reading
  • Music: I listen to a lot of music from almost every genre except rock, I tend to like anything with a Spanish guitar and especially flamenco
  • Food: Log cake; or any pastry/sweet. I'm a sucker for all of them
  • Tea: Chinese oolong tea called An Xi Ti Kuan Yin I fell in love with when I used to live in Hong Kong; I take my tea extremely seriously
  • Dream destination: The Canary Islands
  • Phrase: [When you're lost, follow the road. Only when you're not lost, can you lose the road.
  • Franchises: Star Wars, Star Trek, Ghost in the Shell
  • Role model: Hermione Granger

Guess that went on a little longer than I anticipated, tl;dr I'm glad to be back and proud to help make Icarus a better game for all Riders!

See you in the skies, Riders!


PS: Here's a video of my cat meowing in case you read all of that: https://plays.tv/s/LSkVMtt8kRTg

    I'm a massive fan of cyberpunk and especially GitS. I have actually! I was a little mixed on it, I don't normally watch more sports-type anime, but, I liked that it was a bit different. I did wish it was a little deeper or spent more time developing some of the other characters a tiny bit more, and I wish it was a little more accurate to what kind of abuse and issues that couple would have to deal with IRL, but, I did enjoy it! If you have any suggestions, I'm always open to more! ;)
