Tim Gadd is a Tasmanian-born furry. Despite his birthplace, he has little involvement with the Australian Fandom, which he found too conservative for his tastes. His online moniker, commonly used from the late 1990's, is Lupercal. This refers to the cave where Romulus and Remus were suckled by the She-Wolf before founding Rome, and also to an early poetry collection by Ted Hughes. It is also the Roman Holiday nowadays known as St. Valentines Day.

Gadd was largely responsible for conception and creation of alt.lifestyle.furry in 1996, where his libertarian views made him unpopular with some a.f.f. regulars in the mid 90's.

Gadd has written furry stories for Katmandu (a comic published in the USA by Shanda Fantasy Arts) and his own Bob's Demented Alsatian with illustrations by Bob Drake, with whom he has also collaborated musically on three CDs (Medallion Animal Carpet, The Skull Mailbox and Other Horrors and Caudevalle). His non-fiction published work includes analysis of the portrayal of animals in popular culture.[1]

Gadd wrote and co-performed five radio serials featuring a mixture of 'furry' and human characters between 1990 and 1996 ('The Breakfast Machine', 'The Magic Sunfish', The Adventures of Ramsey the Reindeer', 'West' and 'Clutter'), and hosted an FM rock show between 1979 and 2000. A regular con-goer in the 90's and early 00's, an inner ear problem now prevents him from traveling. He has a postgraduate degree in English and his poetry has also been published.
