Kile "Equivamp" Onasi (born January 26, 1996) is an artist and WikiFur administrator living in the Little Ozarks with their spouse.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Equivamp is active in the furry and science fiction fandoms. Their[1] most frequent online hangouts include Twitter and Flayrah's website.

WikiFur[edit]

Equivamp joined WikiFur in 2010.[2] In 2011, they were granted rollback privileges, and in 2012, became a Conservator.

After turning 18 and ceasing activity on a different wiki, Equivamp became a Colleague. As of June 9, 2017, they are the sixth most active contributor to the project.[3]

Convention attendance[edit]

Fursona[edit]

Equivamp's fursona is a zebra pegasus, except when used in context of the ‘’Star Wars’’ expanded universe for roleplaying, stories, or art. In these situations the same character is an alien bearing a resemblance to an anthropomorphic equine with stripes.

A partial fursuit of the zebra pegasus character was built by Junius Arrakis in 2015.[4]

Controversy[edit]

Encyclopædia Dramatica[edit]

Equivamp was once a frequent editor to the satirical wiki Encyclopædia Dramatica,[5] even gaining some privileges such as the ability to quickly roll back edits.[6] An earlier version of their user page stated that they would "help with the furry articles",[7] something they have done, in addition to the start of several new articles.[8] For a while they were also caretaker of the site's "FurFaggotry Portal".[9] They have since stated that they do not "have time for [the] site any more."[10]

As of mid-2013, Equivamp was more active on ED's forum and IRC than its wiki, but had slowly faded from activity by 2014. Equivamp's administrative privileges were removed in mid-2015 due to inactivity.[11]

Fur Affinity suspension[edit]

In August 2011, Equivamp was suspended for a week from the furry art site Fur Affinity due to comments left on the suicide journal of Gizgiz, that were considered by Fur Affinity staff to be harassment.[12] Equivamp maintains that the suspension was unjust for the reasons given.[13]

After being suspended, Equivamp opened up a second account,[14] despite it being against Fur Affinity's TOS to use an alt while suspended. This account was subsequently also suspended (permanently) when discovered by Fur Affinity's administrators. After their suspension ended, Equivamp returned to Fur Affinity, but they chose to leave in February 2014,[15] citing the website's recruitment of Adam "Zaush" Wan to its "Phoenix Team".
