Ludwig's persona by Jordan.

Ludwig Daniellis Nolan Göff, 4th Viscount Boyce, is an American member of the fur community that lives in the US state of New Hampshire.

Ludwig was born on January 4th, 1985 in Houston, Texas. After spending twelve active years in the Houston fur community, he relocated to New Hampshire on October 18th, 2013. Ludwig is perhaps best known in the community for his neo-1930s British countryside attire; this being his usual sense of dress. Being a strong believer in civility and basic manners, he often facetiously refers to himself as "just a jaded, old-fashioned countryside gentleman".

His fursona Ludwig is an anthropomorphic European Stoat (mustela ermina), of the family Mustelidae; who lives in Shackelford, Northland Territory, in his creator's fictional United Mayland Empire universe. He is the 4th Viscount Boyce, and a member of mammals who manage freight regulations for over-the-road, and rail transport within the empire's province of Hearthwin. As with stoats, he's traditionally russet in colour with an off-white belly and black tipped tail. During winter his russet fur turns pure white, which is when a stoat is correctly known as 'being in ermine'. Save for the fur, and other details of that nature, he's based off his creator in age, size and personality. He also wears the same prescribed pince-nez eyeglasses as his creator.

Ludwig gave his fursona the title 'viscount' in 2015, in remembrance of a fan of his stories who passed away that year. The person expressed great interest in the United Mayland Empire, and requested that Ludwig look into peerages to suit his character's role within it.

Hobbies and Interests[edit]

Having joined the fur community on October 16th, 2001, Ludwig is a furry artist, writer, fursuiter, craftsman, and amateur photographer; displaying many of his works on Fur Affinity and deviantART. Much of what he submits is traditional, with a perspective that often caters to mood; usually in an attempt to bring attention to subjects, styles, people and characters that are often overlooked.

The Secret of NIMH, Redwall, and Welkin Weasels book series are among his greater fictional interests. A fair amount of his past and current work in art and story writing ensuing from those inspirations. His favorite animals are those within the family Mustelidae.

Fursuiting[edit]

Ludwig's Fursuit by Kwik.

As of August 12th, 2011, Ludwig became a fursuiter - wearing his suit for the first time at Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2011. His fursuit is a European Stoat (mustela erminea) like his drawn fursona - and was built as a gift by his friend KwiK. While in suit, Ludwig wears his usual attire.

Fur-Meets and Conventions[edit]

On the Lone Star Furs forum, Ludwig started the Prince's Fur-meets in Houston, Texas on February 12th, 2009. The meet would occur on the second Thursday of every month. The meet had grown significantly over a year's time from an average of 5 attendees, to 25. Ludwig later became more preoccupied with life; and on May 1st, 2010, turned over the responsibility of the meet to another. This furmeet continued till the spring of 2015, when Prince's Hamburgers permanently closed their Weslayan location.

He has attended the following conventions: Texas Furry Con 2004, Oklacon 2009, Furry Fiesta 2011, Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2011, Furry Fiesta 2012, Furry Fiesta 2013, Anthro New England 2015, Anthro New England 2016 and Furpocalypse 2016.

Social Organizations[edit]

Ludwig is the founder and current administrator of the Order of Mayland-Louther; a small team of mustelid enthusiasts from across the globe, who seek to promote a more accurate representation of the family Mustelidae for both art and education.
