    How did you come up with your Merc name?

    So how did everyone come up with their DUST merc name?

    I wanted a name that sounded intergalactic so I picked two star names that I liked, tweaked them and put them together. My name in EVE was Dorada Cassini so I wanted the same name for DUST but unfortunately it was unavailable so I arrived at Dorada Aquila.

    i wanted a play on 'Mechanic' - the Hitman term. so that's where i got Toolshed from.
    however, the notion of calling him Toolshed solely was quite ridiculous so i gave him a rather 'Upper class' sounding surname
    (McLean is not my surname if anybody was interested )

    if we can give our mercs bios, i'll probably come up with a back story that alludes to his real first name.

    THE GREY CARDINAL - 'grey cardinal' is an idiomatic expression for someone who exerts power or influence from behind the scenes so as to not draw attention to themselves. My ex once called me this when talking about my personality but it also fits my logistic role on the field. I made it capital letters for irony sakes.

    Lol. When I first saw your name I read it like MClean until I realised it was actually Mc Lean and that definitely sounded more badass lol.

    Quite interesting, I've never heard of that expression before. It definitely suits your role on the battlefield.

    My merc name came from an old nick name that was given to me one night about 15 years ago when my friends older brother came home totally stumbling drunk....He stumbles up to me an tells me "Dude....Your Dewey!". Some how that night the nick name stuck and with in a week the whole hood was calling me Dewey ( and there was nothing I could do about it lol). Over the years the name evolved from Dewey to : Doo, D, The Doo, D.W., to finally DooBoy...I just rearranged the spelling to DuBoi. The 187 comes from the old school rap music I grew up listening too, where 187 is the police code for a murder, death, or killing...
