About me: Would-be Graphic Design Major, die-hard fan and scholar of many science fiction themes, topics and subjects, constantly playing video games, reading and/or writing, or working in Adobe Photoshop CS5. I usually never rank one sci-fi theme above another, only as equals, but right now, Half-Life ranks as one of my top ten favorites!'
The Story Behind My Username(s)
My story is fairly obvious. I liked the Japanese words "tora" (meaning attack) and "kamikaze" (meaning divine wind). Originally, it was the name of my Morxapanese Neo-Ninja Jedi Master character from my science-fiction stories, whom I at first called Tora Kamikaze, but then thought it too simple, so I rewrote it as Toraiin (Tor-ryan, or Tor-ion) Xamikaze, (the X sounding like a Z), which is also my username for my DeviantART account, and Xamikaze330 is my username for my Photobucket account, and not forgetting my Twitter username, Shazamikaze. And besides, I think it sounds a lot better and more cooler to say Toraiin Xamikaze than Tora Kamikaze. The 330 is part of of my letter-number designation I gave myself, ICO-330-367 (ICO being my initials for my (old) pseudonym (which I don't use much), "Ivan Cornelius Owens", my secret agent name. On the other hand, a better, more suitable pseudonym I am considering using is "Esteban Cornelius Owens", thereby making it ECO-330-367.) Xamikaze330 is also the name I gave myself when creating an Xbox 360 profile. 330 is actually my real initials in something I call "calculetter" code (or is it actually Leetspeak?), which is actually 033 backwards, and if you look at it upside down, it will say EEO. That is the story behind my usernames.
Some Thoughts About My Mission
First off, I am a hardcore fan and scholar of all science-fiction themes, topics and subjects, specifically Halo, Half-Life, Mass Effect, Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, etcetera, and have been doing much scholarly study on multiple sci-fi themes. But for the Combine Overwiki, I'm just going to be sticking with my strengths. Among my God-given gifts are analysis, examination and observation, with a keen eye for spelling/misspelling mistakes, grammar and punctuation, and also just submitting legit images and renders I have created (see the Image Gallery Description below), and maybe just adding images retrieved from elsewhere on the Internet. Some janitorial duties, and some not so janitorial, like adding in facts to trivia and the like, from things I have noticed on examination and research, using multiple sources related to Half-Life. And of course creating some articles, and whatever else comes to mind.

My Top Ten Sci Fi Favorites
Under normal circumstances, I would never ever do a thing like this, rating one above another (always equal to each other), but if I were forced to, it would look something like this:
- Mass Effect
- Star Wars
- Star Trek
- Battlestar Galactica
- Babylon 5
- Firefly & Serenity (they're both effectively the same thing!)
