What's in a name?

So, my take on challenge 5 for LGS3 was a little different that what has been seen so far. How it will be recieved, Lord only knows. If my brother is following this, I'll probably get in trouble for the pictures I chose, and also how I decided to describe my "character" at some points. The "goddess" one is sure to rub him the wrong way. In this instance, it has nothing to do with deity. But anyway......

One of the ways I described my character, connected to the really cool pic I've posted right here...was "The Fierce Avenger...arbiter of justice...a righter of wrongs..." I thought that my choice of 'arbiter' was interesting...because it is in essense a synonym for Judge. The full definition, as given by ask.com ---
#1One chosen or appointed to judge or decide a disputed issue; an arbitrator. #2One who has the power to judge or ordain at will.

I'm not sure what it is, but for some reason, this description of my 'character' in this simple role playing game, who is very much myself....intrigues me. Why did I choose it? Other than the fact that injustices upset me...double standards infuriate me...and all too often I feel so powerless.
Powerless too defend myself and others against certain wrongs....powerless to effect change in this world.
Which is funny - because I've recently learned how carefull we need to be in judging things...other's and ourselves. I'll have to continue this thought later...I'm falling asleep at my computer...even with Liston's alarm clock going off.

You've got an ideal picture image there. A tough female avenger is just right!!!
