When I first signed up for Xbox Live and needed a near permanent handle. 5150 was something my brothers turned me on to. This is basically a California code for someone who is a danger to themselves and/or others around them. I used this in case whatever I chose was taken.

I started thinking and at the time I was in middle school doing a paper in my English Literature class on a short story by an author of our choosing. At this point I was really into Edgar Allan Poe and wrote my analysis on "The Masque of the Red Death".

To summarize, the story is about a Prince who hosts a masquerade party with several hundred rich locals to hide out from a terrible plague that is ravaging the city. A plague so terrible that the person who contracts it gets excruciating symptoms and died within a half hour. In this mansion there are seven rooms the first six being of various colors but the seventh, black.

During this party there was a guest with an eerie mask of a corpse that no one wanted to approach, yet allowed it to venture through all the rooms. When it got to the last room that no one was in, the prince followed it armed with a knife with everyone else following him. Once unmasked there was nothing underneath, and in that room everyone died.

Pretty dark I know! But it's a great read and I'd highly recommend it because that's a really short summary. After completing my paper I had to title it something unique and catching. Since I made connections to the bubonic plague and the seven deadly sins I needed something that can incorporated all of those elements including the creepy black room with a red tint light.

I named that paper Black Wrath.

Ever since then the name just stuck, and that was back in 2003!
