Athari is a programmer, fan of The Lion King and a furry fan. He was born on February 11, 1986 in Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia.

He joined the Russian TLK community in early 2003 when he received the movie by mail from another fan.

As of 2007, he is studying in Kazan State University on the faculty of Computer Science and Cybernetics.


The nickname "Athari" is a Swahili word for "scar." He named himself after Taka, a lion from the fan fiction Chronicles of the Pride Lands by John Burkitt and David Morris.

For a long time his fursona was a dark-colored lion cub based on Taka, as he felt himself in many ways similar to the character. However, around 2006 he changed his fursona to a snow leopard, as he felt his personality had become too different from the cub's.


Athari is the author of GeekCoder, a Windows program for encoding and decoding geek codes. It supports many codes: TLKCode, Furry Code, WereCode, Yiff code and others.
