On Wikia, I first registered in a forum for a dark, dark game. "Alychne" represents something as dark as dark can get -- it is the locus of coordinates in a color space which have zero luminance. Most of these points represent colors which are imaginary; they cannot be physically realized.
When joining the discussion here, I wondered: Should I re-register with a new identity, or should I keep the one I had. And I realized that many elements of the Harry Potter canon are dark; there really wouldn't be much interest if there weren't dark things to offset the luminous ones. So I decided to stick with my existing identity, which would fit into the Harry Potter world, even though I consider myself one of the good guys!
