Ludwig D.N. Göff, is an American member of the fur community that lives in the US state of New Hampshire.
Ludwig was born in January of 1985 in Houston, Texas. After spending twelve active years in the Houston fur community, he relocated to New Hampshire on October 18th, 2013. Ludwig is perhaps best known in the community for his neo-1930s British countryside attire; this being his usual style of dress. Being a strong believer in civility and basic manners, he often facetiously refers to himself as "just a jaded, old-fashioned gentleman".
His fursona Ludwig is an anthropomorphic European Stoat (mustela ermina), of the family Mustelidae. As with stoats, he's traditionally russet in colour with an off-white belly and black tipped tail. During winter his russet fur turns pure white, which is when a stoat is known as being 'in ermine'. Save for the fur, and other details of that nature, he's based off his creator in age, size and personality. He also wears the same prescribed pince-nez eyeglasses as his creator.
Hobbies and Interests
Having joined the fur community on October 16th, 2001, Ludwig is a furry artist, writer, fursuiter, craftsman, and amateur photographer; displaying many of his works on deviantART. Much of what he submits is traditional, with a perspective that often caters to mood; usually in an attempt to bring attention to subjects, styles, people and characters that are often overlooked.
The Secret of NIMH, Redwall, and Welkin Weasels book series are among his greater fictional interests - a fair amount of his past and current work in art and story writing ensuing from those inspirations. His favorite animals are those within the family Mustelidae.
As of August 12th, 2011, Ludwig became a fursuiter - wearing his suit for the first time at Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2011. His fursuit is a European Stoat (mustela erminea) like his drawn fursona - and was built as a gift by his friend KwiK. While in suit, Ludwig wears his usual attire.
Fur-Meets and Conventions
On the Lone Star Furs forum, Ludwig started the Prince's Fur-meets in Houston, Texas on February 12th, 2009. The meet would occur on the second Thursday of every month. The meet had grown significantly over a year's time from an average of 5 attendees, to 25. Ludwig later became more preoccupied with life; and on May 1st, 2010, turned over the responsibility of the meet to another. This furmeet continued till the fall of 2015, when Prince's Hamburgers permanently closed their Weslayan location.
Ludwig has attended the following conventions: Texas Furry Con 2004, Oklacon 2009, Furry Fiesta 2011, Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2011, Furry Fiesta 2012, Furry Fiesta 2013, Anthro New England 2015, Anthro New England 2016, Furpocalypse 2016 and Pine Fur Con 2019.
