The Sonic God, also known as Sonicgott, is the alias of Justin P. Reese, the CEO and President of The Ultimate Gamers Community and messageboard administrator for more than 10 furry-based communities. The name itself dates all the way back to 1991, when a hacking incident with a Sega Genesis and a Game Genie resulted in a shocked response of his sister, "You must be a Sonic God to pull that off!" This resulted in the naming of his furry persona. The Sonic God was one of the few divine characters conceptualized for the Sonic the Hedgehog universe, along with others such as The Sonic Entity.

In 1994, Justin soon found himself fascinated with one of Disney's animated films, The Lion King. He has been a fan ever since.

In July of 2000, Justin created "The Ultimate Gamers Community." With a love for video games and technology came the idea for this company. In 2001, he created a Lion King-based community, which is now part of The Unofficial Lion King Archives.

As Justin's character evolved, concept art created by Dave Rivet would be the first art to ever show a physical character for this Sonic the Hedgehog world entity. Later, other concept art was created. Justin's love for The Lion King, however, would soon be a huge influence in the design of his character. The first artist to create the new lion version of The Sonic God is SpiritWolf77. Other artists would create The Sonic God's lion character over time, such as KWIK, TaniDaReal, MightyQuirky, and ProtvScar.

Biography[edit]

The Sonic God plays the role of a deity character for the furry universe, guiding and helping those who seek him. Despite having unlimited chaotic power, he uses it for the forces of good.

The Sonic God is a moderator and/or administrator for The Lion King: United Nations, The Furry Forum, and UGC.

Over the years, Justin would still find himself very fond of big cats, a huge part of his furry persona. In 1994, he soon realized the potential for his character, creating a secondary surname, "The Divine Entity," which would be an alternative name to The Sonic God, and the character would then thereafter be defined in leonine form.

The Sonic God is also Founder and Main Host of Radio Unifurse, an internet radio show that airs every Sunday after the Funday Pawpet Show.

The Sonic God is the Director of Registration at Anthrocon.

Fursuits[edit]

Justin's lion character, Shisazen Mukanu, conceptualized from a story that he wrote, Leaders of the Pride, became his first-ever complete fursuit, commissioned by MixedCandy. It was debuted at Anthrocon 2009. At Midwest Fur Fest of 2009, Shisazen Mukanu's fursuit head was updated, noting mechanics and design. The previous head was retired and made into another costume. Shisazen has appeared once as subservient on Funday Pawpet Show.

Justin's timber wolf character, Xavakin, conceptualized from a Dungeons and Dragons game, is his second fursuit, created by Akorn Studios in August of 2008, and first premiered at the Fall 2008 MNFurs Picnic in mid-September, and made a first major furry convention debut at Midwest FurFest 2008. Xavakin has appeared as subservient twice in Funday Pawpet Show. In March of 2011, Xavakin was passed down to a close friend, Turka Wusky.

Justin can also speak a little bit of many languages, mostly German as a secondary language, but has also sampled other European languages including French, Spanish, Finnish, Danish, Dutch, and Portuguese.
