Interests and hobbies
Etrius has been shown to have very strong opinions and defends them vigorously. During civil discussions, he has shown to be quite intelligent and knowledgeable in a variety of subjects ranging from history, mathematics, philosophy, and science topics ranging from modern electronics to mechanics.
Despite having a confrontational and opinionated personality, he donates money to St. Jude's Children's Hospital every month, stating on his Twitter that he doesn't need the money.
Illnesses and cognitive disorders
Etrius has Asperger syndrome, insomnia, PTSD, oppositional defiant disorder, and permanent loss of genital sensitivity caused by wrongful prescription of medication that increased his body's production of estrogen.
Etrius first joined the furry fandom in early 2009.
Etrius's fursona is a cybernetic white tiger chimera approximately 7'7" (2.3 meters) tall, with cybernetic arms. He is artificially built out of many different existing animals. He has a titanium skeleton and various other artificial enhancements. His genitals are a mix of canine, feline, and serpentine parts, with a feline sheath and shaft, a canine knot, and a serpentine/equine glan, with an overall length of about 13 inches, and the knot can expand up to 8 inches in diameter. The glans features a flare and spines, the purpose of which is thought by biologists to be to scrape competing male's semen out of the female.
On FurAffinity there is a depiction of Etrius with black semen, and the description states that this is canonical. The purpose or cause of this is not clear.
Etrius's fursona goes by the same name he does in real life, with the full name "Etrius vanRandr", with a distinct lack of a middle name.
Etrius was a United States Armed Forces officer serving overseas when he developed untreatable cancer from being stationed too close to a radioactive materials processing facility. Before his death, he opted to be reported as KIA and had his body donated to science.
His body was then salvaged by a rogue US government scientist that was exiled for unethical experiments. His memory was erased and his brain was used in creating a cybernetic animal/human hybrid, now known as Etrius's anthro form.
The rogue scientist's facility was raided by the US Special Forces and Etrius was left in his cryo cell for another ten years before the facility's backup generators failed, releasing him with no memory of himself or his history.
