The {{Troper}} currently known as '''Black Mephistopheles''' enjoys diving with reckless abandon into whichever series has caught his fancy, depending on the series, weather, and occasionally the ''hour'' of the day.

A longtime [[{{Otaku}} fan of anime]], avid reader, and computer programming amateur, he has yet to have an opinion on something, which he has kept to himself.

Be advised, one of his lifetime projects is to be featured in the example section of UnreliableNarrator, so keep an open mind and a cynical eye on anything offered up by this guy.

Threats, jokes, suggestions of ways to better master the English language, restraining orders, et al. are cheerfully [[strike: ignored]] read and replied to, at black [dot] meph [at] gmail [dot] com.
!!The following {{Tropes}} have been [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness seen in the area near this person]]:

* AllMenArePerverts: This guy started early, writing a story in middle school, that almost got him expelled from high school. Although you gotta admit, [[NoodleImplements that character did know some wacky things to do with a toaster]]....
* BadassBookworm: He can read and walk, without running into things - or people - at the same time. [[BlatantLies He can bench-press your car!]] He's also a (former) Marine, so if you mess with him, he can shoot you with a unscoped rifle from a third of a mile away. So...yeah.
* TheBigGuy: (Class 5) The wife's favorite way to talk about him to others.
* BlindWithoutEm: Not ''quite'' literally, but, yeah. Can read print six inches from his nose, but even that's pushing it.
* CakeEater: His wife is...(looks around for witnesses)..."significantly older" than him.
* GeekyTurnOn: His wife likes Batman. He '''''is''''' Batman. If, you know, [[{{Metaphorgotten}} Batman were poor, black, overweight, and based on the West Coast]]...other that that, they're [[SarcasmMode the same guy, totally]].
* GentleGiant: He's 6'2" (187cm), and 290 lb (130 kg), but really, he's just a [[EverythingsWorseWithBears great big teddy bear]]!
* HappilyMarried: Thirteen years and counting, but their antics still [[TastesLikeDiabetes taste like diabetes]].
* {{Kuudere}}: Type 1. He ''thought'' he was TheStoic, but has since been disabused of that.
* OneOfUs: Likes to pop on forums and lure unsuspecting new members to the [=TVT=] site. Does check to make sure the poor sod isn't going to starve from constantly clicking connecting links, though.
* PowerPerversionPotential: In reverse - his birthday is 6/9/69.
* ScaryBlackMan: See the BadassBookworm and GentleGiant entries, above, for details.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: This dude is made of this trope.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusRealism: Makes [[WalkyVerse Joyce]] look jaded, he's so Idealistic.
