Amaikokonut, often nicknamed Aiko or Amai and formerly known as Bombay, BluburryNorn, and even "norn" has lurked around the Creatures Community on and off for years. She can occasionally be seen around the Creatures Caves and Creaturetopia forums, as well as CC Chat

Amai runs a Creatures blog called Naturing Nurturing, where she posts a wide variety of Docking Station agents as well as several disjointed ramblings about her development efforts.

One of her biggest efforts is Live Nornish Action, a live, somewhat interactive video stream of Docking Station.

History

Amai first discovered Creatures in 1998 through AntiNorn's site Tortured Norns. She was intrigued by the game but being only a child with a meager allowance, she was very cautious about how she spent it and thus ventured into JRchat under the alias of "norn" to ask questions regarding the game. Unfortunately, it seemed her chosen alias was hardly unique enough to give her a solid identity, but she did learn that Creatures 2 was about to be released and decided to save her allowance for that instead.

As she had discovered Creatures via a very non-traditional Creatures site, she continued to frequent sites such as The Creatures Match and The Creatures Abyss under the alias of Bombay. Although she had chosen the alias in honor of the beautiful breed of cat, she was often nicknamed "Dr. Bombay," and became mildly frustrated. During this period she did create her first COB for Creatures 2, a torture toy called the Cactus Ball. Unfortunately, no known copy of the file remains.

By the time Creatures 3 was released, Amai was getting a little bored of the novelty associated with being one of "those evil norn-torturing people" and becoming even more bored of being called Dr. Bombay. Thus she redubbed herself BluburryNorn, and went through several phases of lurking and delurking in the Creatures Community.

Finally, in September of 2008, Amaikokonut decided it would just be easiest to redub herself under the alias she used for all her online interactions rather than having a separate one just for the Creatures Community. During this time she also discovered Creaturetopia and found that she felt very comfortable with the community there. Her interest in Creatures has remained fairly consistent ever since, and she has found great joy. As far as we know, she lived happily ever after.
