Jaffer Roshak is a furry who lives in Canberra, Australia. His fursona is a white avian.


Jaffer first found out about furries in 1997 through Magic: The Gathering's Tempest deck, where a picture of a feline anthro called Mirri, drawn by Susan Van Camp, caught his eye.[1]

It took almost 3 years for Jaffer to realize that the furry fandom was much bigger then himself and he slowly became more involved.


Jaffer’s fursona has changed several times, and he has many alt characters, usually created to explore and experience as much of the fandom as possible.

  • Jaffer ‘Cydan’ Roshak was originally a generic feline, then moved onto being a leopard. This stuck until early 2008 when one of his alt characters started become more like a main. Since then, Jaffer has merged with the alt character Cydan and become a white avian.
  • Cydan was originally a white avian created to explore parts of the fandom that Jaffer would not dare tread, but after becoming attached to the character, Jaffer merged it with his main. Several character quirks of Cydan still exist within Jaffer.
  • Iaisa Eesha Thastest (pronounced i-ee-sa) is a tigress. She was the first female alt of Jaffer’s has probably been one of the largest influences on him. The character has gone through several changes, the largest of which being her killed by another fur, Felicia Wolverini. It was planned by both parties, and after it happened, Iaisa came back as a ghost. She is still played from time to time.
  • Valery ‘vixen’ Vaporay started as an experiment by Jaffer to see if he could role-play a female character outside of the furry fandom. She was a vixen and a gamer. She joined an internet gaming clan where she managed to play for 9 months, with almost daily contact with the members. Jaffer was eventually caught when the clan leader developed a crush on Valery, and tracked her IP to the same one that Jaffer had. After confronting Jaffer/Valery it was agreed that Jaffer should leave the clan. Jaffer had created a very complete background to Valery for use while role-playing her. There are two versions of her:
    • Story Valery has an eye condition called keratoconus (which Jaffer has in real life) and has to wear glasses to see clearly.
    • Chat room Valery is blind. Jaffer made her like that to improve his role-playing skills by focusing on more than just how things look.
  • Katrina ‘kat’ Skelt: was the mate/lover/mistress of Valery. She was originally just a name, but the character has been fleshed out over time as Valery has developed.
