# I am a word (short riddle 2)

Every P.SE user has me.

Scramble me, then not only P.SE users have me.

Then scramble me and prepend two letters, I am in the heart.

Then change one of my letters, I save people from impending doom.

What was I originally?

Hint 1:

There are 8 of my original form in a specific type of battlefield.

• Could you give feedback on my answer and maybe give a hint if it's wrong? I can think of a few things that are in the heart (blood, chambers, artery etc.) and "theater" if it's not referring to an actual heart but the available letters in "the heart", but I found nothing that fits the rest of the riddle.

• Does scrambling involve more than mixing up letters? For example does it include turning a 'd' into 'b' or 'p'? Mar 29 '17 at 12:50

"There are 8 of my original form in a specific type of battlefield."
Columns on a chessboard are referred to as "files". There are 8 of them.

We all have a little avatar which is art.

Not only P.SE users can have a rat as pet.

Then scramble me and prepend two letters, I am in the heart.

The aorta is connected to the heart if that counts as "in".

Then change one of my letters, I save people from impending doom.

Morta. Who else could better avert doom than a goddess of death? speaking from experience on that one ;)

Not so serious alternative:
Unless you mean a porta (potty), cause not having one when you need it can be a "doomy" experience as can be seen here: workplace.stackexchange.com/questions/87395
