This is my About Me page!
I'm Enforcer (they/them or xe/xem), the host and webmaster of this page. I've been doing HTML in some capacity since 2014, but didn't really get my act together until 2020. I joined Neocities in 2021 after spending quite a while looking for good web hosting. I got my start with art, characterization, and HTML on Neopets, where I still am, and it's one of the number 1 influences on my style. If you're wondering what my handle is a reference to, it's not. I needed a cool title that started with "E" for a character back in 2018 and it stuck.
In case you couldn't tell, I enjoy HTML, writing, and art as hobbies. I don't consider myself to belong to any specific subculture. In fact, I take pride in defying easy classification. I'm proudly agender and just queer in general. I'm not in any "fandoms" because I don't consider the things I like to be subcultural, but I love talking about my interests. If you get me on about Pokémon Go, retro Windows, or Falling In Reverse, I probably won't stop. In terms of media, you can find a list of works I like on my TVtropes troper page. Feel free to contact me on one of the outlets listed on the homepage if you want to talk about shared interests or have recommendations for me.
This is my sona!
Their name's Enforcer and they're a rattlesnake with wings. They're also a human sometimes. They are not a weresnake or a feathered serpent or a dragon or anything, they are just themself. They're literally me, as in the entity behind the curtain. If you want to draw them, please do so.

Reference (By Me)
Human - Updated 6/17/2022
Snake - Updated 10/31/2022
- Name: The Most Esteemed and Exalted Enforcer, Lord of Edge, King of the Musical Murder Scene, The Most Eminent Webmaster of the Draggian Universe, and Master of All They Survey. You can call them Enforcer for short.
- Species: They're a snake, namely some sort of generic rattlesnake with traits from other cool vipers, who happens to have wings and be a human sometimes. They are not a wyrm, amphiptere, or any other kind of dragon, they are not a naga or lamia, they are not a weresnake, and xe CERTAINLY isn't a feathered serpent. (This is your PSA that The Feathered Serpent, known varyingly as Quetzalcoatl, Kukulkan, and Q'uq'umatz, was never depicted with wings. When he's a snake at all, he's a wingless snake covered in feathers.)
- Gender: No. To go into more detail, they're a guy. A pretty, genderless, androgynous emo guy who transcends gender and uses neutral pronouns. (agender with some transmasc tendencies)
- Pronouns: they/them or xe/xem
- Age: Transcends time and space, the question is meaningless.
- Orientation: Aromantic, probably ace-spec? Only interested in anyone in the abstract.
- Occupation: Deity and/or demon king of darkness, neon, edge, and virtual pet sites. Living xyr best life with deific powers they don't really need because most of what they do with them is play virtual pet games and listen to Falling In Reverse. Does as xe pleases.
- Abilities: Various flashy stuff that isn't especially useful except for aesthetics. Xe can manipulate light and darkness for cool effects and can also generate a soundtrack, either spontaneously or via supernaturally manipulating all nearby speaker-equipped devices. Can shift between human, snake, and anthro-snake forms. When in snake form, they can talk to other snakes. Their snake forms are also venomous and can fly. Xe's got a shapeshifting, soul-cutting blade, but it's not really good for much in the physical world.
Administration is Enforcer's signature weapon. It formerly belonged to the Demon King Of Edge, but Enforcer gained custody of it when xe absorbed the demon. Its default form is a scythe, but it can shapeshift into any other blade-like weapon or tool. Because it was forged by demons, who are made of pure soul matter and don't have physical bodies in the traditional sense, it can cut through souls and physical animum including preventing regeneration, but can't damage non-animum physical matter. This means that for someone like Enforcer, who lives in a mostly matter-based world, it's not really that useful. Even if it were, they're really only interested in violence as a topic for edgy songs and being a demon doesn't preclude you from legal and social consequences for stabbing people. Enforcer keeps it around as a reminder of their victory over the Demon King of Edge and as an extra line of defense in case any other metaphysical entities try to harass them. It also looks good in photo-ops and hanging on their wall.
Like you'd expect of any entity in the 2020s, Enforcer carries a smartphone. It's useful for Pokemon Go, playing music, and keeping in touch with friends, plus its case is a functional wallet. Enforcer regularly clips keychains or other useful items to the attached carabiner clip. After all, if you're supposed to have your keys, wallet, and phone before leaving the house, it just makes sense for those to all be the same thing.
A misunderstood baby scenmo kid sits in front of a pair of 10-year-old monitors, absentmindedly clicking away at a virtual pet site, the only place where xe feels like xe can properly express xyrself. They're listening to a Nightcore of a Punk Goes Pop cover and are considering that they wouldn't mind finding out who the original artist was, but they never get around to it for the next several years. In short, they proceed with the same things they've done for years, feeling like they have no place in this world or any other. They long for a single best friend who understands their unique mentality, interests, and more. In fact, they'd sell their soul for that.
A Demon King appears to them, decked out in skintight black armor, leather, and spikes, bearing wild, multicolored asymmetrical hair, and dangerously brandishing a massive scythe, the light of the kid's computer room glinting off its sharpened edge. The creature introduces itself as the Demon King Of Edgelording and tells the kid it'll be xyr best friend, help xem unlock xyr true self, and expose them to a world of music and aesthetics beyond their wildest dreams. The kid doesn't have anything better to do, so they accept. The Demon King is overjoyed and introduces itself as the Enforcer, Master of Edgelord Reality, king of alternate worlds. It takes up residence in the kid's head, recommending them music, clothing, and friends.
If you think this is a magical girlfriend story where supernatural aid helps the kid find themself, you're mistaken. The Demon King does not have their best interests at heart. In fact, it plans to get them to destroy their soul so it can occupy the kid's body. It approached them because they were not only the only vessel with powerful enough mental and spiritual abilities to sustain continued possession as its avatar, but because weighed down by gender dysphoria they didn't know was gender dysphoria and lacking any real friends, they lacked the confidence in themself to fight back. The Demon King of Edge would masquerade as a cool, powerful figure embodying the kid's ideal presentation. The kid would idolize it and gleefully embrace all of its commands, and would slide into becoming entirely dependent on it, lacking any real concept of themself outside of its influence. They'd destroy themself for it and they'd smile and tell the Demon King how cool it was the whole time.
The Demon King underestimated its victim's power. Xe listened to its music and clothing recommendations, yes, but with every track, they reimagined it and reclaimed it for themself. Using the very power that drew the Demon King to them in the first place, they fought back with every suggestion. Gradually, as they reclaimed and decorrupted all of the fragments of the demon's power that it granted them, they gained control over it, rather than the other way around. After years of this game of mutual manipulation, they were prepared to mount their final attack, gaining ultimate power and preventing the evil creature from taking advantage of anyone ever again. First, they started drawing pictures of the demon, treating it as one of their characters. They gave it a ref, a backstory, a page on their website, and built up an understanding in worldbuilding of how it worked. The demon was all in favor of this. After all, if it could infect the very creativity that had let the would-be vessel resist it, then all of xyr tools against them would be damaged.
But in the end, every OC is a part of one's self, and the demon failed to realize this before it was too late for it to fight back. The would-be vessel sectioned off part of their soul for the demon, allowed its power to take hold, eventually granting them all of its abilities...and then reabsorbed it into them, where as far as they were concerned, the OC had originated in the first place. The once proud spirit of destruction was reduced to an inner monologue, a story they told, and that served as the Lord of Edge's final downfall.
Empowered by the fel energies coursing through them, the would-be vessel transformed. They took on the demon's color scheme, but altered to their own style, adapting it into the serpentine and feathered features of their favorite persona character. Their endlessly dark hair took on a single point of light, the same vibrant, near luminous red as the demon's aura. In the end, all that was left of the Demon King was the scythe Administration that clattered to the ground before the former vessel. The scenmo kid picked it up, embraced the surge of power that electrified their body as they thrust it into the sky, and took on the demon's title for xyrself, adding some additions of their own.
They would henceforth be known as the Enforcer, Demon King of Edge, Master of Alternate Realities, King and God of the Music Scene, Liegelord and Webmaster of the Draggian Universe, the Most Highly Esteemed and Exalted, the Devourer of Souls, They Who Show No Deference. The human who a demon attempted to possess and who possessed the demon right back.
And then they returned to their virtual pet sites.
