Most people have had someone that was influential to them affect their lives in ways that the person in question may not have ever realized. We are the way we are because of our experiences and the people that we knew. Real or fictional, it can be anyone that you have aspired to or looked up to. Your parents, a superhero, an actor, your janitor in 5th grade, whatever. Feel free to elaborate why the person meant something to you if you so wish.

So, I'll start.

My childhood was pretty lamentable to say the least. For starters, I was pretty much the nerdy kid in school, whereas it was an age period where most of the kids preferred to socialize rather than focus on their schoolwork. Home wasn't that great either. So anyway, cutting to the chase, the first person that I ever idolized was Will Smith because of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series. He made me laugh in a period of my life where joy was an unusual emotion for me. Over time, I watched more of the movies that he appeared in and he became my favorite actor. I still regard him as one of my childhood heroes.

The second person that I idolized was one of the best friends that I've ever had. I can't really get too much into a backstory for her without getting more personal than I care to, but she helped to pull me out of a pretty dark time. My home life was abhorrent and quickly growing out of hand due to problems with my step father. She ended up being there with me through most of it. I still look up to her.

So there's mine.

That will be the easiest question I'll ever be asked. My adoptive father , I could have been screwed over by the failed foster system in my country if it weren't for him. He saw something in me, I am afraid I'll never know now, and he adopted me. And what could have been a nightmare turned into a dream.

He taught me the virtues I hold dearest, of honour, duty, and the weight a promise truly has. He taught me how to shoot a rifle and kill a deer with a knife if need be. Everything I've done and everything I'll ever do is thanks to him.

And his life was ended by some human trash junkie who only got 11 years for his crime. I promise you the moment the fucking legal system lets him out he'll regret the day he killed a man a 1000 times greater then he will ever be.

My mother for turning against the blood of her family--suffering for years, only to do what was right. Even when it was for other people.

The closest thing I've had to a hero, particularly a childhood/celebrity hero, was Chris Jericho (of WWE fame). Growing up he was like the only famous person from my city that I knew or cared about, but Jericho was my favourite wrestler regardless and I admired him for a lot of reasons.

He's a great live performer, sure -- actor, singer, comedian, stuntman, etc. -- but the reason I liked him was because he was so real about his work. Yes, he was playing an exaggerated version of himself. He truly seemed to enjoy his work, and he seemed natural and familiar, so it was more than just the joy and humor and entertainment he brought me every week -- he sort of became a virtual friend I could look up to, like a role model.

Thinking about it now, I wanted to be like him, and I sort of did. I'm in a creative field of work (ad/marketing, and I've written some novels), but I put my self into it. Even when it's fiction, when it's not real (like wrestling), I am, and my ideas and traits and emotions shape my work.

Ohh he'll get his, I've spent the last six years among other things ensuring I have the financial and personal resources necessary to make his life a living hell. When I am done with him that human trash will likely kill himself and spare me the trouble.
