Telos has also spent considerable time living in other countries, including 5 years in Belgium, and 8 years in the Republic of Ireland. He is a graduate of Cardiff University and has done work in student radio and magazine production.
Telos is a fan of Progressive Metal and music in general.
Telos gained internet-based fame due to a series of rant videos on YouTube, centered around aspects of the fandom and popular culture.[when?] The series was ended in early 2008, as Telos decided that the videos were not representative of his attitudes and opinions towards a lot of the subject matter any more.
- Selkies - Telos' former fursona has gone through several design changes since it's conception in 2005. It was originally designed to be a red and brown dragon with the name of Cym. A name change was in order though in late 2006, due to an embarrassing mis-pronunciation that most people attached to this name. Ember's partner at the time Leon Fauve (creator of the FMV series') suggested the name "Ember" due to the primarily red colouration of the fursona. The name was adopted, and had stuck until 2012 wherein the name of the character was changed to Selkies, to better represent something that carried greater meaning to Telos. The name is taken from the progressive metal song "Selkies: The Endless Obsession" by Between the Buried and Me. This has been frequently cited by Telos as being his favourite song.
In late 2007, a fursuit of Selkies (at the time, Ember) was commissioned. It made its public debut in September 2008 at Brumcon 3.
- Blanko - In early 2007, Ember decided to create a secondary fursona, a mix of a fox and a husky called "Blanko" for which he would adopt as a fursuiting character. He commissioned Joecifur to create Blanko for him. He made his debut at Midwest Furfest 2007.
He has since taken Blanko to several public outings, as well as to Confuzzled in 2008, and Brumcon 2 in the same year.
