Etheras The Fennec by MoodyFerret

Etheras Dela Fay is a fennec, created by the player of Jaspian to be his "evil half-brother".

The character was originally a pilot project, as Jaspian/Etheras was going to decide which to keep as his primary fursona in 2013,[1] but has since opted to keep both.[2]

Character[edit]

Etheras - also known as "The World's Most Adorable Tyrant" appeared simultaneously in artwork, on the MUD of Tapestries, and on SoFurry, InkBunny and Fur Affinity. The first convention Etheras's player attended as Etheras was Furry Weekend Atlanta 2012.

Etheras typically wears a signature ankle-length satin ceremonial loincloth, and matching cape. He has also been known to dabble in more elaborate costumes, such as authentic exotic show costumes. Notable characteristics include:

  • Cold demeanor
  • Pure white fur
  • Yellow pupil-less eyes
  • 4 earrings in the left ear: an ankh earring down low, and three studs higher up.
  • 3 earrings in the right ear: a 'rising sun' up high, two studs down low
  • A crisscross of fine cold chains meshes between the earrings
  • Eye of Horus makeup on both eyes
  • A beautymark under his left eye
  • Stylized effeminate body
  • Massive Ears
  • Massive fluffy tail
  • Insatiable taste for equine companions

The character's canon is that of an Egyptian prince, either in a traditional "ancient" sense, or a quasi-futuristic "raygun-ancient" or "clockwork-ancient" type setting. There are canon hints that the character is a god, but stories do not yet indicate whether this is just because he's descended of the pharaohs.

In Person[edit]

Etheras is most recognizable in-person by his tendency to dress in the costumes of his character. Most frequent among these is his signature show costume / carnival costume. However he keeps an extensive wardrobe of costumes, including floor-length ceremonial loincloths, capes, and more.

It wasn't until many years later, when Jaspian's player became an adult, and began attending conventions, that the fursona was expanded into the real world, by his player dressing as his character.
