Fadil, better known as "And My Fornax" on the boards, is a friendly young drell with a somewhat sad disposition. He registered on the boards shortly after their formation, and although he's taken several breaks since, he always seems to come back around - for better or for worse.

A Closer Look

Although he used to have a much fuller figure, Fadil has grown rather thin as of late. He has bright, yellow scales that are accented by muted browns and grays, which have earned him the nickname of "Banana" over the years (and many variants of such). Standing at an average height and with an unassuming posture, Fadil, were it not for the rarity of his species, would be easy to miss in a crowd.

During the Reaper War, Fadil was crushed under a large piece of rubble and lost his left leg from the knee down. Too poor to afford a cloned replacement, he now has a prosthetic that he uses to get by.


Fadil was born to a loving couple in the Compact on Kahje. He lived a relatively unassuming life, going to school, making friends, and experiencing all the highs and lows of growing up. As he grew older, he became more and more interested by literature, and eventually started a part-time career as a romance novelist while simultaneously working in accounting.

When he turned twenty-two, he moved away from Kahje and onto the Citadel, where he found work as an executive assistant to an elcor named Zoftan. There, he worked for the next five years, until the outbreak of the Reaper War - at which point he took it upon himself to go to Earth to help relief efforts for Terran natives. He stayed there throughout the war, lost his leg in the process, and would have happily remained had Hearth and Home, the NGO he was working for, not decided to send him back to the Citadel to help negotiate grants for their organization.

Having re-settled on the Citadel, he was more or less left adrift, trying to find his place in life aboard a station he once called home.


Fadil loves books, but doesn't necessarily read a lot; he more or less collects books because they're a novelty.

He has a tendency toward nervous tics - he rubs his birthmark, folds his hands in front of his face, or adjusts his clothes.

His user name on CDN, "And My Fornax", is apparently a reference to a joke from Scraping Scales.
