Question What are You?

I'm not sure if someone has started this thread before, but I'm willing take a shot.

Members of Cosplay.com, I'm curious, what is your ethnic background?

I'm Scottish
English
Irish
German
French
And also being born and raised in America, I'm American, of course.

But lets make this a little more interesting. If you're a Hetalia fan, do the same as above, but also a sentence about your ethnic background with the countries being traits of the characters. (If the country is not officially recognized, you don't have to include it. It does not have to be in order,)

For example:
I'm a Romantic who practices black magic, passionate for making sweets, and I'm always the Hero.

British. AKA "Anyone passing through in the last 1000+ years".

But seriously, I'm 1/16 Welsh, English by decent and my surname uses a Scottish spelling. I'm culturally English (from Leicestershire, raised in Shropshire). I have a culturally part French grandfather who lived in France for about 5 years prior to WWII breaking out.

I'm English, there's a little Irish in there too (surname is from the Irish side of my family) ^^.

Hetaliawise- I have imaginary type friends, practice black magic and no one appreciates my cooking XD

I'm British. Mostly English with a teensy bit of Welsh thrown in there at some point - my surname is one quite known to be Welsh. But yeah, I'm very much English.

Something like 3/8 Russian Jew (actually probably more than that but I don't want to go into 16ths), 1/4 German, 1/4 English, and that last 1/8ish is Romanian, Austrian, and some undetermined Slavic stuff... Czech maybe. Lots of lost records when you go far enough back, so we're not entirely sure!

Cuban, my mom is 100% (you'd never know since most of us are all blonde and blue eyed, except for me), my grandparents were wealthy in Cuba and till Castro screwed them. My grandpa just wants to outlive Castro, and he will. My dads side is Czech, from the very old countries. We did research on my moms side, we also have French, blue blooded family originally.

Of course where you are born is what you are, but to blissfully ignore your heritage makes the world big bland self righteous mutt. There are plenty of kids born in a different country then their parents, but still only speak their parents language, eat what they eat, believe what they believe.. regardless of where they were born.

I don't go telling anyone unless they ask, it's an interesting topic.. only if actually KNOW something about your background from your family, not from wiki or an anime. Not everyone (yes, even in the America) uses their family history to try and seem like something special.. because it really doesn't matter, it's just a part of your personal history. It's hard to believe every other person is descended from royalty like they all seem to say.

My ethnic background is...
Prussian
Norweigan
German
Welsh
English
Irish
and Scottish
Also I am American.

I think I have a lot in my background, I am mostly Prussian and Norweigan though. I am basicly, 1/2 Prussian, 3/8 Norweigan, 1/8 German, 3/14 Irish, 1/14th Welsh, Scottish, and English. I did a lot of research on my ethnic background a while ago for a school project, I originally just thought I was Welsh, German and Norweigan.

I am a critical loud-mouth person who carrys birds that I never notice; I can't cook and I pratice Black magic, I also eat hamburgers day and night while making my friends run 10 laps around my neighborhood.
