Ristin, also known as Ristin Raccoon, is a fursuiter and member of the Westhaven furry household in Mount Gravatt, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Ristin is the life partner of Marko the Rat, who he regularly fucks up the arse, a sensation he describes as "throwing a baby carrot down the Clem Jones Tunnel".
Ristin is a chemical engineer.
On March 7, 2012, after living together for over seven years, Ristin and Marko registered their civil partnership. However, shortly after it became possible to register a civil union in Queensland, the Liberal conservative candidate Campbell Newman won the 2012 election, and initiated a suite of anti-LGBT initiatives including annulling all same sex civil unions.
Ristin's fursuit 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 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.
