Azure Paragon, formerly CommanderNilut (real name Ryan Cook;[citation needed] born on January 2, 1993 at the United States Fleet Activities Yokosuka, Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan),[citation needed] is a freelance artist, aspiring musician and photographer who has lived in Charlotte, North Carolina since 2011 and the state itself since February 2003. He is part of the Carolina Furs group.


Azure Paragon is a university student studying for a Bachelors of Fine Arts in concentration of Illustration.[clarify] Azure Paragon treat music as a hobby while pursuing a career as a game artist, gameplay innovator/supervisor, story writer, and story director.

He has also taken a recent interest and careful consideration in wanting to learn some foreign languages for the benefit of his career possibilities as well as personal interest in their respective culture and the languages themselves. Currently, he is learning Polish, due to his hypnotic fascination of Slavic culture, history, & fiction/films, but also aims to learn French for not only enjoying the way it sounds but also directly for his job opportunities to broaden later on.

Azure may also consider any other foreign languages to learn from but wishes to take his time mastering at least one while having an admiration for the Uralic languages such as Finnish and Hungarian for both creative and literary reasons. His interests are however still mainly in art itself. He also has other Original Characters of various species, some representing an alternative version of Octazûrè, while others are entirely their own entity.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Azure has been around the edge of furry fandom since 1994, joining actively since August 13, 2001, mostly as an artist, drawing original characters, starting with a crimson-red anthropomorphic pentaceratopss character named Almodar Quetzaloctomon (Simplified naming), which was later changed to a beige-colored Protoceratops. He rarely ever plays second life, which he has from his very first account since August 2006.

He discovered internet furry art sometime in 2004, and even deliberately found adult dragon art sometime in March 2005 (including YiffStar), joined an American Dragon: Jake Long fan forum in June of that year, and associated with more scalies in deviantART starting from April 2006. Between June/July 2007, Azure had discovered FurAffinity through Halo fan-art and OC images. He has also been playing video games with animal characters since the mid-to-late 1990s, mostly with NES and Nintendo 64 games, both with his local sibling and friends at the time, and alone. Some also came from other consoles.

Azure had completely come out socializing directly in the furry fandom within their sites in 2009 as a scalie fursona named Azure Paragon, as being his first, officially drawn, fursona character. In June 30, 2012, Azure attended his first furmeet, CaroWinds, with Megaplex XIII being his first furry convention in Orlando, Florida from July 24 - 28, 2014. His inspiration for scalies, reptiles, dinosaurs, and dragons has sparked progressively since The Land Before Time back around roughly 1994-1995 when watching films, which technically marks passively being involved in the fandom.

For furry conventions, his 2nd con is BLFC 2015 and aims for more furry conventions to attend in the future. Additionally, his intention is to attend as many fur conventions as possible per year when he enters his professional art career, and more.

Azure joined FurAffinity in December 21, 2007. He is part of the Carolina Furs group. Azure Paragon has a fascination with dinosaurs, containing his first character, Almodar, being a protoceratops, with his first anthropomorphic character version being a blood-red, crimson pentaceratops, reptiles, and fantasy dragons in 2001 (apricot-beige Final being in very early of 2002.)


Octazûrè Hypệrïon Prȍmetheǫ̈n , also known as Azure Enigma Paragon, AzureParagon or Azure for short, humorously nicknamed Draggybutt or Wildberry, is a gay Western Skydragon (full description: an amethyst-scaled Armathian electrolunar skydragon). His scale/fur ratio is 78%/22%. This would mean that he is a draconic creature from planet Armathia that is a direct biological offspring to the lunar dragon and skydragon species. By default, Azure appears to portray at age 22 in design. He's also seen as his thicker 41-year old self in some images.

Standing at 6'11" (2.1 meters) and weighing 290 pounds (131.5 kilograms), his body's scales are blue-violet with a periwinkle underbelly, indigo eyes and Ivory horns. His hair is Platinum, sporting a sky blue head gem. His male genitalia is onyx black. His main element power is Lightning, followed by Fire, then Ether/Sky. He uses white electricity and blue fire. Canonically, he was born from planet Armathia and visits Earth.

He likes to exercise, stripteasing, dance/rave, composing (both digital and real instruments), painting, animate, 3D modeling, body modeling, refine his weaponry, hang out with other beings (preferably scalies and other dragons), take interesting and visually appealing photos, use computers for both prioritized importance and fun activities, attend conventions of his interests, watch animation shows, listen to trance music and video game/orchestrated and synthesized musical soundtracks, writing poetry, stories, dream logs, event logs (journal and Diary), and play video games. His favorite fruit is strawberry. Azure's sex drive is exceptionally frequent/virile and enjoys being with guys.

His personality is distinctively kind, loving, humorous, energetic, ingratiating, obsequious, worrisome, determined, vigilant, intense, bold, eccentric, and earnest. Despite his aggressive and assertive sense of ambition, Azure is a mentally/emotionally scarred living being. Some has rumored him to later be called the "Lonely Legend," in his canonical science-fantasy adventure novel fiction, Anthroventures: Cryoclock Chronicles (2012) as a supporting character. His Battle Archetype is WARRIOR, when put into an RPG combat role context / fight-data type, but can also serve as a HUNTER. Most of his offense types are short-ranged combat by his main preference of weapons: Shock sabers, bazookas, and thunder boomerangs with the occasional long-range such as his energy gun pistol and red laser rifle.

Azure's personality type is ENTJ-A; He has an aggressive attitude and his envy and intensely ferocious life-perfecting attitude (including art and anything else he's interested in) can get in the way of his happiness sometimes. He can also be occasionally bitter and ultra sadistic in humor. Despite his violently brutal and exceptionally twisted sense of cynicism, he is open to his best friend in real life, whom he trusts fondly and extremely intimately.

Convention attendance[edit]


Azure has been drawing actively since 1993, trying to make a career from it. Azure has a great interest in dragons, and enjoys drawing them in his spare time. His favorite forms of creating artwork are Drawing/Illustration, followed by Painting and a more recent enjoyment for Print Media, with Ceramics as a former third.

His art styles are best described as surreal-impressionist, containing dream-like lighting effects, textured colors that are appealing, and a somewhat Van Gogh-quality to the overall composition, giving it a semi-realistic look on his major works. Hyper-realism with low colors is his ideal aim, especially if it involves digital art in Ultra HD display (4096ppi or higher). Oil pastels and acrylic paints are his forte in traditional art.

Azure also would love to try other art styles to fit the variety of his techniques and gallery, despite not being his primary preference in art style. His most common subject matters are dragons, fantasy worlds, dreams, macabre, and comfort/friendship. More concepts and objects are also welcomed. He is best with painted backgrounds/scenery being his greatest asset, while anatomy is his main weak point.

Azure used to draw fanart frequently from 1997-2009 starting from Zelda and Nintendo fan art offline, and Halo fan art in deviantART from 2006-2011. He does not draw fanart as often anymore, but still welcomes the possibility of doing so during his spare time for fun. Azure also has a habit of making many logos.
