Yes, this was an April fools. No, I'm not Spanish - I haven't even been to the country. Not a convincing fool I know, but I wanted to do something
The story behind the A Mysterious Spanish Gentleman name links back to the Emoticonist Secret Santa where I stepped into the project to replace someone who had dropped out. As I wanted my identity to remain a secret, the code name A mysterious Spanish Gentleman was used instead.
A Mysterious Spanish Gentleman
The truth is, I am Spanish. Well... that's a lie. In truth I was born in Spain but moved to England when I was about a year old. So whilst I was raised as English (hence the gentleman side) I was in fact born Spanish (hence the Spanish element of my name). Because of this I wanted to show my pride in my true nationality and the whole 'A Mysterious Spanish Gentleman' thing seemed and amusing but fitting tribute.
Now some of you may be saying 'But why are you a gentleman?'. Well the term 'A Mysterious Spanish Gentlewoman' or 'A Mysterious Spanish Lady' didn't have quite the same ring to it. Also, as my OC is male it seemed more fitting.
So in tribute to my heritage, Syn has added to his outfit in my avatar to become the Mysterious Spanish Gentleman he truly is.
And this is all a lie .... I'm actually a unicorn
