Ludwig's persona by Jordan.

Ludwig Daniellis Nolan Göff, 4th Viscount Boyce, (also known as Nolan Göff), is a German-African American member of the fur community that lives in the US state of New Hampshire.

Ludwig was born on January 4th, 1985, in Houston, Texas. After spending many active years in the Houston fur community, he relocated to New Hampshire on October 18, 2013. Ludwig is best known in the community for his neo-Edwardian and traditional British country gentleman attire; though this being his usual sense of dress - being a fan of the late 19th to early 20th century world. He often wears a variety of tweed waistcoats, with an attached 1917 Waltham mechanical pocket watch. Being a strong believer in civility and basic manners, he often facetiously refers to himself as just a jaded, old-fashioned country gentleman.

His fursona Ludwig is an anthropomorphic European Stoat (mustela ermina), of the mustelidae family; who lives in Shackelford, Northland Territory, in the United Mayland Empire. He is the 4th Viscount Boyce, and a noble member of executives who manage freight regulations for over-the-road, and rail transport within the empire's province of Hearthwin. As with stoats, he's traditionally chestnut in colour with an off-white belly and black tipped tail. During winter his fur turns white, thus then being known as an ermine. Both he and his fursona share a 1930's English country gentleman sense of dress. 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[edit]

Ludwig (2017)

Having joined the fur community on the 16th of October 2001, Ludwig is a furry artist, writer, fursuiter, PC game editor, craftsman, and amateur photographer; displaying many of his works on Fur Affinity and 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 interests. A deal of his past and current work in art and story writing coming from those inspirations. His favorite animals are stoats, pine martens, weasels, ferrets, otters, opossums and rats.

Fursuiting[edit]

Ludwig's Fursuit by Kwik.

As of August 12. 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 by his friend Kwik Cheetah within two weeks. While in suit, Ludwig wears his usual attire.

Ludwig later added the pince-nez glasses on the muzzle himself. An antique pair of pince-nez was used - its old bridge was broken and glued to an extension bar to each lens. The lenses are prescribed and made of glass, and the bar stays on by being securely pinned to the muzzle. He also installed a cooling fan using a linear potentiometer; later making the suit's handpaws, sandals, movable jaw, and follow-me-eyes.


Fur-Meets and Conventions[edit]

On the Lone Star Furs forum, Ludwig started the Prince's Fur-meets in Houston, Texas, on February 12, 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 as of May 1st, 2010, turned over the responsibility of the meet to another. This furmeet continued till the spring of 2015, when Prince's Hamburgers permanently closed their Weslayan location.

He 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 and Furpocalypse 2016.
