I was in the same newsgroup Noel mentioned ... [In reply to] Can't Post

... and had a Balrog character called Count Menelvagor. The count bit came partly from opera, and partly from snobbery, and partly from who knows what. Later I developed a similar character for a weird RPG. Anway, I was bored of Menelvagor and couldn't be bothered to come up with a new name (especially as it would have been obscure anyway), so just went with Count Balrog.

My avatar comes from the RPG I just mentioned. I didn't come up with it (didn't have the photoshopping skills); but have been using it ever since.

Balrogs rule (literally)
