The word taigitsune (タイギツネ, pronounced /taɪ ˈgi ˌtsɯne/) is a linguistic blend of the Japanese words taiga, the borrowed English pronunciation of tiger (タイガー, pronounced /ˈtaɪ gə/) and kitsune, a mythical Japanese being (キツネ or 狐, /kitsɯne/). It refers to a species of tiger-kitsune hybrid.
While sometimes depicted as intersex and almost always depicted wearing a skirt, Satori is genetically male. Nevertheless, he represents the concepts femininity and empathy.
His fur is white with black stripes, and he has purple irises. A red five-pointed star adorns his left cheek. His hair is iridescent in color and is cut short in the back with long bangs in the front that are typically dyed a shade of purple or blue.
Ikaris (イカリス, pronounced /ˈɪkərəs/) is a portmanteau of the Japanese word ikari, meaning "anger" or "hatred" (イカリ or 怒り, pronounced /ˈɪkərɪ/) and the name Icarus of Greek legend. He is so named for his propensity toward negative emotions and the consequences they bring.
He represents masculinity, strength, and those emotional states typically perceived to be negative, and is the yang to Satori's yin.
His fur is black with white stripes, and he has red irises. A red crescent moon is emblazoned on his right cheek. Like Satori, his hair is also iridescent in color and is usually allowed to grow as long as possible. He is occasionally depicted with ram horns.
Harland Ambrose Roosevelt Emerson (Ambrose for short) is a realistic rabbit constructed by Dr. Morrow on Fur Affinity. He debuted without a name, and was worn by his creator at Furry Fiesta 2011. Adam later purchased him and gave him his name, which is based on Victorian steampunk fantasy.
Harland means "land of hares" or "hare's land" in Old English. Ambrose means "immortal" and is Greek in origin. Roosevelt means "field of roses" in Dutch. Lastly, Emerson was chosen because of Adam's affinity for the early Unitarian minister Ralph Waldo Emerson.
