Sorien is a taur -- specifically, a cervine base taur, closely resembling an antelope with black and white Okapi markings. She is the chief owner and designer of the Emerald City Tavern on FurryMUCK (with help from Cuprohastes and Oz), where she can usually be found. Her player, Michael Heinsohn, has been a fan of anthropomorphics since the 1970s and was an early subscriber and supporter of the Centaurs Gatherum Newsletter. His involvement in the fandom pre-dates the formal founding of the Furry Community. Additionally, he is known for hosting tea parties at conventions such as AnthroCon and Midwest Furfest.
