Ristin is the life partner of Marko the Rat. The pair first met in late 2003 when Marko went to Melbourne for MiDFur, and this meeting was organized by Oz Kangaroo and Tzup. On March 7, 2012, after living together for over seven years, Ristin and Marko registered their civil partnership. Unfortunately, shortly after it became possible to register a civil union in Queensland, the christian conservative candidate Campbell Newman won the 2012 election and initiated a suite of anti-GLBT initiatives including annulling all same sex civil unions.
One of Australia's few raccoons, Ristin is a fursuiter. His suit was created in 2006 by Oz Kangaroo's "Critter Country" costuming business. Ristin has worn the suit in the 2006 and 2007 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parades and at Furry Down Under 2010. Ristin also co-stars in some of Marko the Rat's fursuit videos.
Ristin is also a roleplayer and part of Brisbane's small circle of furry roleplayers. (Furry games such as Albedo and Ironclaw are favored). He is also a recovering addict of World of Warcraft, where he was part of the furry guild Order of the Claws and Guild Master of Order of the Fang on Bloodhoof server.
The Furry subreddit of the site reddit.com is one of Ristin's main stomping grounds and he is a moderator there (username Ristin). He can also be found on livejournal.
