Rat and Haal, is a fursuiter and plushophile, and member of the Westhaven furry household in Mount Gravatt, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. He is the life partner of Ristin.

[edit] Fursona

Marko's fursona is a rat, of the species rattus norvegicus, and he felt an affinity to this species even before he identified himself as a furry. In real life, Marko and Ristin kept two non-anthro pet rats, Izza and Bo, but they are both since[when?] deceased.

Marko's first fursona name was Haal Serkonov, but he mostly goes by the name of Marko. On Second Life, he plays a grey rat character named Haal Ratner.

Although Roophilia has been replaced by a web 2.0 presence, he still enjoys dabbling in photography and often visits Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where he has an annual pass.

Marko collects plush toys and has accumulated quite a large collection. He is unable to sleep comfortably without plush. He is a full blown plushophile, though his main focus is cuddling them while he sleeps.
