The Person behind the Fur
Taryn is a pre-op male to female transgender who identifies as female and uses she/her pronouns. Taryn has a deep affection for all animals and has had this affection since she was a young child. That love soon expanded to animated cartoons as she grew up in the era of DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin and many other cartoons.
It wasn’t until 1999 that she came to identify with the fur community, upon discovering The Gneech’s The Suburban Jungle. The main characters, in particular Tiffany Tigress and Leona Lioness that showed her that females could be strong and dominant in their own rights. Another character, Drezzer Wolf helped her come out, which she has done a total of four separate times. Her family does not approve, and she is working to remove herself from that situation.
Taryn has been in the furry fandom for eighteen years, since that fateful day she found the comic. From her humble beginnings she’s used various names including Ravyn DeLaFae when SoFurry was still YiffStar and its chat was Yiffchat. She’s bounced from name to name until finally settling on Taryn.
She attended both Anthrocon 2016 and Anthrocon 2017. To date, these are the only cons she has attended. It was in the Anthrocon 2017 conbook that her short story New Ball Game written under the pen name Lynn Brooks was published.
She is also an avid roleplayer and mingles on twitter, trying to help other furries on there and just generally hang out. She can be found in either the SoFurry chat room or the F-List chat room as well as Telegram and Discord, but she doesn't give that info out unless asked.
Taryn was a male named Lou. After a world wide attack in 25xx, the former male was one of the lucky ones to survive...only to find himself transformed into herself, and a tiger.
Relationship to Fursona
Taryn, the Tiger, is Taryn the human. Both are transgender, both grew up in Pittsburgh. Where they diverge is that the real life Taryn isn't a fox and hasn't transitioned yet. Taryn the tiger is what the human wishes she could be. So the connection between the two is very, very strong.
