Phoenix's fursona is a German Shepherd, created by his original Kimi Cook (Kpcrox). Bearing realistic colors, its fur is tan and brown. The character has a feral and an anthro (bipedal) form. His fursona is considered a species-fluid or transformation sona, as he can switch from one species to another at will. Currently he is a German Shepherd Dog.

His current artist Kotirikkin; has made several pieces for him, and has made his latest reference sheet pictured right. Starting as a simple contract job for a few stickers, Kotirikkin has become Phoenix's current go-to artist and one of his best friends.

Phoenix created his fursona when he was 16, his family had never owned a dog before and his imagination had always wanted one in his life. So he decided that his fursona should reflect the dog he's always wanted. Today, Phoenix's fursona now represents himself more than the dog he always wanted, but deep down Phoenix will always be the dog he wanted in his childhood.

Phoenix has a "fursona career" as an emotional support dog, as that felt to be a more appropriate job for his fursona compared to police or military dog. He occasionally wears a vest custom made for his fursuit that designates him as a service / support animal at conventions and events.

He owns a partial fursuit (Pictured Right), and plans on obtaining a full fursuit in the future after college. His fursuit was designed by a fursuit designer on Etsy named Audrey Saldana.[2]


Phoenix is also studying in college for an associates degree in Computer Systems Administration. He currently studies with his homelab and online resources, as well as at his current technical college. His passion for technology has been with him since he was just a pup, and has grown with him throughout the years. His passion for technology keeps him on his paws and always learning new things! Currently he has a CCENT certification and a MD-100 and is working towards a CCNA and CompTIA A+ certification.


Phoenix has attended the following conventions:

Gateway Fur Meet in 2018 and debuted his fursuit in the Parade, at several panels and in the lobbies. He plans to return in 2019.
