Beekin's Badge by Draconium

Beekin (also known as Dragon Creature; born November 9,[1] 1981, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) is a fursuiter and occasional furry artist who lives in New Westminster, British Columbia.

Characters[edit]

The Beekin character was born at the end of the 1990s. Before that, he mainly used the name Dragon Creature (or dragon_creature).

Over the years, Beekin has changed species several times, representing himself with a microraptor/utahraptor, raven and dragon. Each character reflects a different side of him, and all have two things in common: the name Beekin and green eyes.

The story behind the name is simple. When he moved back to Montreal, it was a new beginning for him. He simply chose to use the word "begin" and remove the "g" to add another "e" and a "k" to keep the sound similar when the name "Beekin" is spoken quickly.

The Dragon[edit]

This is his first character he used. A bronze dragon not bigger than a human. Because of the confusion between him and the Beekin of Furcadia he start looking for another character.

The Microraptor and Utahraptor[edit]

The raptor idea is coming from a game called Secondlife. At the time, the only dinosaur avatar available were Velociraptor and Utahraptor made by Nargus Labs. Later as he was browsing on Fur Affinity website, he stumble on a few Microraptor drawing and he love so much this little feather ball that he adopt this creature as his main character.

The raven character is a more personal side of Beekin. He also have a fursuit of it.
