Straight from my post on the matter:

How does your character define themself? What part of their identity is most important to their personality and self-presentation?

In meatspace, we have so many affiliations, it's anyone's guess whether we consider ourselves a tuba player first, or a student, a Gators fan, a New Yorker, a mother, a nerd, a liberal. Our identities are comprised of so many different aspects of life that it's hard to tell which parts different people will choose to define themselves.

In game, there are less game-related ways to identify.
You can identify as:

your class - your spec
your race - a particular subgroup (Mag'har, Wildhammer)
your faction - a faction other than Horde/Alliance

I always love delving into who I am in game. Loved the topic, should probably do more with my other characters...

Kind of a fun topic, imo. Definitely had to jump into this one since I apparently like to babble about myself :p

The Identity

I've had two distinct trains of thought related to this topic. Here's the first one. I may or may not get the second post up before this forum thread closes.

I was a little tardy, but here's my spinoff take on this topic:

Shared Topic: Identity and Affiliation (Part 1)

I won't get to part 2 for a little while. >_>;;

Thanks,
