What I'm Doing Here
Right now, all I have and can say is that I do have a slight (okay, now not slight, but definite) interest in Bungie's newest game, Destiny. But I have no idea how far I would be willing to go to help out here, as I spend most of my free time on Halopedia.org. But the most I can do right now, is probably mostly janitorial duties, like spelling and grammar checks, that kind of stuff. And if possible, upload new high-resolution images wherever and whenever I can. And finally, that I am willing to do everything possible to make this the best Destiny online encyclopedia, perhaps even better than the Destiny wikia, ultimately eclipsing it. That's all I really have to say so far.
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.

My Top Ten(Plus) 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:
- Doctor Who
- Star Wars
- Star Trek
- Mass Effect
- Battlestar Galactica
- Firefly & Serenity (they're both effectively the same thing!)
Other random favorite media:
Babylon 5, Starship Troopers, The Last Starfighter, FarScape, Gears of War, Command and Conquer, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Sanctuary, 24, Call of Duty, Battlefield 3, Ghost Whisperer, Psych, Monk, Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings, Inheritance Cycle (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance), Legend of the Seeker, Once Upon a Time, Merlin, Harry Potter, etcetera.
Articles on Destinypedia I Have Created So Far
This is just my way of keeping track of the articles (not counting image categories) I have created and written, in chronological order of creation.
Images Gallery Description
Basically, right now this page (and the subpages links) is being used for most, if not all, the images (most transparent cutouts, and others not) that I have created (using mostly Adobe Photoshop CS5) or else photographed on my computer or retrieved from the Internet and submitted to Halopedia and other websites like my DeviantART account (ToraiinXamikaze), my Tumblr account (Xamikaze330) and my Photobucket account (Xamikaze330) using legitimate in-game screenshots, scans, and other forms of related graphic digital media. But I might add that not everyting here is actually mine, merely just linking all the images I like, a Favorites gallery of sorts, and also a way of keeping certain images from getting lost or deleted, an insurance policy. I might also add that I have no personal images (4 personal images are allowed, but those are reserved for Facebook, etc.), but that every image in my galleries is Destiny content. All credits and copyright properties belongs to Bungie Studios for all their great work on the new Destiny game. But in other words, I’m merely doing a public service, contributing, really, to the budding Destiny fan community. And also, I like doing this kind of thing. So, it’s purely self-interest, or perhaps not. Honest. Finally, I kind of think of myself as one of possibly many self-proclaimed Image Archivist(s)/Librarian(s) of Destinypedia.
