Melvis Barksy is a red and black wolf fursona created and owned by 17 year old fursuiter and YouTuber Marcus Moran.
Melvis loves to be friendly, chipper, and give hugs to everyone he meets. He can often tend to be shy and nervous around new people, as well as occasionally cheeky and a bit short-tempered. However, he never ceases to try being polite and kind, always willing to brighten people's days. He's also quite often goofy, silly, and a tad clumsy.
Marcus joined the fandom when he was 15 years old in May 2016. He's made many new friends since then and has gone to several conventions (only in the northeast US as of now due to traveling issues) and plans on going to many more around the US and possibly in Europe in the future.
Marcus's fursuit was made by Kodimade in November 2016. Its first public debut was at Anthro New England 2017 and continues to appear at certain conventions. While wearing the fursuit, Marcus speaks with a high and jolly voice which often tends to crack (either purposely or unintentionally). His performance is almost always hyper, chipper, and bouncy.
A second fursuit of Melvis is being considered. Marcus hopes to have it made by Roofur Custom Mascot and Accessories sometime in 2018.
Marcus made a few alterations to his fursuit a couple of months after Anthro New England. The head had small eyelids made of red paper stuck underneath the pupils to give it a more jolly look. Later on, eyebrows made of fleece were also added. The body suit was always a loose fit on Marcus. Therefore, he now wraps polyfill around his arms and legs underneath it to give it a better outside appearance as well as make it more snug-fitting.
