Arcturus Kirwin (also known as Meredith, Fiscal, Nicolyrezk and A.J. Kirwin-Muller) has been a system administrator and developer on various furry websites. He is resides in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA.[1]

Furry[edit]

Arcturus classes himself as otherkin, but often jokes that he is just "suffering from delusions" instead. He is a shapeshifter with many varying guises, including an opossum, a red panda, and an anthropomorphic blue-and-white, yellow-spotted female dragon.

Real life[edit]

In the land outside of the vast, bizarre Internet, Arcturus is a rather diminutive person of mostly Irish descent. He spends his days working on new and exciting projects for Angry Draken Media as well as a number of projects such as e621 in his free time. Whilst many online find him to be a rather exuberant and outspoken person, in real life he is quite introverted and shy.

Technical responsibilities[edit]

Arcturus has helped to host a number of websites for individuals, groups and small organizations, both furry and not. In the past he helped to stream FBC content and, after assisting with rebroadcasting and archiving 2 Sense, moved to occasionally broadcasting shows. He was the founder of ArtPlz after the breakup of Fur Affinity, at which time he withdrew his hosting following a managerial disagreement with Fur Affinity's founder and administrator Jheryn Lightfoot.

ArtPlz itself also saw some drama after he developed ChanPlz, an Fchan clone for posting furry art. Several volunteers withdrew their support for ArtPlz, such as Arshes Nei stating ethical reasons for doing so. ChanPlz was taken down a few days later by Arcturus and others involved in its creation.

Arcturus was an administrator for and systems administrator of WTFur, a mature furry image board much like Fchan, but subsequently came to runs, owns and maintain the furry community e621. As of August 31, 2010, he no longer runs e621. He shut it down in response to allegations of the site hosting child pornography, and gave the data over to Varka when he offered to take over the site.
