Steampunk. Also known as Viraumus Sabena, Commander of the 5th Ether Rifles, Martian Colonial Army. Trying to teach myself German, Latin, and Gaelic. The former two due to academic needs, the latter due to being interested in Gaelic. Currently based in Northern Indiana, finishing undergraduate work in Medieval Studies at a prestigious university. After that I'll plan on drifting around the current city I where I reside for two years. And then it is off to explore the world with my beautiful lover, perhaps picking up a masters along the way. I've got a mild phobia of cars, which means I don't drive. Thankfully I've got a few very warm woolen coats and such, along with nice boots that make it possible for me to walk in the Northern Indiana winters...which pretty much suck, and are one driving force for my desire to eventually head to warmer climes--or at least climes with better weather, warmth being a rather relative thing.
I am a dedicated Mithraist despite lacking any knowledge of Latin or Greek. This makes keeping the path difficult at times. I would definitely consider myself to be in the non-fluffy-bunny sections of paganism--the cults and mysteries I keep are very much my own, though I follow variants of different things along with bits and pieces of Sufism thrown in for good measure.
I collect British militaria, specifically tunics and coats--and I actually wear them to things other than reenactments, so...if you want to get on my list of awesome people...well, do something awesome...or send me a coat (message me for my address, I'll foot shipping because of your awesomeness)...and you might just win a medal of the Illusory Martian Soviet.
