What the hell does that word mean? Also, someone's picture can be used as the avatar obviously right? Whatever avatar means.

An Avatar was originally an Indian word meaning a manifestation of a deity on earth (usually they were not seen on earth). Nowadays the term is used to mean a picture or character that represents a person online or in a video game.
Like if you played the Elder Scrolls Oblivion you may remember Martin transformed into a dragon at the end. That was called the Avatar of Akatosh, meaning Martin served as a conduit for Akatosh to manifest in physical form on earth.0
