Fenris (a.k.a Fenris the Wolf,Fenrisulfgan) is an American furry artist, techie, and gamer who lives in Seattle, Washington . He is a Pacific Northwest Native and studied at the University of Washington.
A lifelong techie, and has worked with various High Tech companies primarily in and around the State of Washington. He has done everything from procurement to financing but now focuses on Software Development and Testing.
Born in the US, Fenris has lived in the Pacific Northwest all his life and aside from his family ties in the area enjoyed the mild climate. Fenris is a mix of Italian, Irish and American Indian but has always felt a close connection to his Indian Heritage. Fenris has always had a strong interest in wolves and considers himself a therian as he directly identifies with his wolf fursona. Fenris generally goes by some derivation of his name Fenris when having to create an online persona. Fenris, Fenris the Wolf, and Fenrisulfgan being his primary ones. Fenris has been an avid gamer since he was a pup and was one of the first people to get the Atari 2600 and the Pac-Man game in his area when it was released in the US.
Fenris studied Photography at an early age and took photos for the local school newspaper. By the time he was in High School Fenris was already a strong proponent of Wolf Conservation in Washington and organized a school-sanctioned fundraiser to support Wolf Haven the local Wolf Sanctuary. Fenris continued to be a supporter and advocate for Wolf Conservation and involved himself in garnering further support for Wolf Haven as well as Wolf and Wildlife protection legislation.
In his professional Career Fenris has used opportunities with the companies he has worked with to support his primary charitable interests: Wolves, Wildlife, The Arts, and Special Needs Children.
Even from the earliest days Fenris has depicted his Fursona as a Dark Brown Gray Wolf who could take on both feral and anthro forms. Fenris’ Fursona has always had a strong affinity for magic and he would depict him as either a druid or a magic wielding warrior depending on the RP setting. To best describe himself he would say his character is a Warrior of Nature. Fenris personality in RP can at times be laid back but when it comes to fighting Fenris behaves more like a Paladin charging into battle for a cause.
As a large wolf Fenris will eat just about anything or anyone but nothing gets his attention more than a nice juicy steak.
