Born in November 1982, Bariki, also known by his zebra character's name Raffa, is a British furry who has been a part of the furry fandom since 1999 when he tripped over the now defunct Yerf art archive.

Bariki is studying for a Master of Engineering degree in Computer Science at the University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. He also runs an international IT consultancy based in Hertfordshire, responsible for outsourced IT services to a number of British-based companies.

Fursona[edit]

Bariki's fursona was for many years a silver anthropomorphic horse. However, he has become better associated with his fursuit Raffa's zebra identity since acquiring him in 2009.
