Bucky (born 1987) is a UK fur and firefighter who lives in Lowestoft, Suffolk, England. His first encounter with the furry fandom was the discovery of Bob Drake's art on Bob's personal website in 2000. However Bucky only became truly involved in the fandom in 2006 after moving to Leicester to attend De Montfort University, where he met fellow student and well known furry artist Ressie. Bucky is engaged to Lapushka.
Involvement in the fandom
Bucky started drawing and writing furry material before becoming involved in the midfurs meets and community in 2006. He started attending the London meets the same year and met his fiance Lapushka/Lappie at an after party held to celebrate Lappie's 18th birthday.
Lappie and Bucky lived together for over three years and shared an apartment with fellow furs Ressie and Kibs, and lived in the same apartment building as Semaj and Xani in the arts quarter of Leicester city centre. The furry residence was a success, however the group disbanded in 2011 with Bucky moving back to Suffolk to pursue his career as a firefighter. Despite living apart Lappie and Bucky are still together and engaged.
Bucky all but disappeared from the fandom between 2009 and 2011 due to work reasons, however he has recently[when?] started playing an active role in helping Drayke Blayze and Kaidron Dragon organize and host the East Furs meets.
Name origin and aliases
The name Bucky comes from the nickname he earned at university for having a 'country boy' accent. His general username is 'Ninjahorse', which was inspired by his original horse character and his former hobby of the Kuk Sool Won martial art, in which he holds a first dan black belt.
