Named after my first Blood Spirit character back in the day...
I chose the name "Mara" because, a) the dice decided my character gender, and b) Mara is
the Buddhist term for the Hindu concept of Maya(that everything is an illusion, a lie to keep us
from progressing). This is a concept I have always found kind of interesting, and, well, for a number
of reasons, it just made sense to use in this instance.
And, I have used the name as my handle on the BT Forums so long, even though I was tempted to change,
honestly, I was too active and well known..so, it was just easier to keep the same name..
