User17 is an unseen character who appears in a trailer for F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin.
F.E.A.R. 2: Project OriginEdit
User17 is a non-character created simply to give Snake Fist someone to send a video to in the Elite Powered Armor Kills trailer for F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. He or she is clearly surprised by it, typing "WTF IS THAT?!!" while paused on an image of the EPA.
Since the video is of an event that Snake Fist had no possible way to get a recording of, and is taken perhaps an hour or two before Snake Fist himself is killed, it is extremely unlikely this character is actually supposed to exist.
- The Armacham Chat Client shown being used in the trailer appears to be based on a combination of interface elements from the mIRC and Skype chat programs.
