One-Line Bio

I'm a pseudo-creative, pseudo-literate, pseudo-numerate, pseudo-reclusive, pseudo-human who lives in a pseudo-castle. I lead a small, but interesting, life in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.

Biography

In the Greek pantheon Cassandra barely registered; she was a mortal with whom Apollo was enamoured. To buy her affections he gave her the gift of prophecy, but she rejected him anyway. Unable to remove the gift, Apollo put a curse on her such that people would never believe anything she said.

My chosen role is Cassandra, but my name is not. I know of many girls and women (biological and other) who use the name Cassandra, but I know precious few boys and men (biological and other) who use the name Apollo. So who really won?
