Richard K Niner's fursona, a yellow dog.

Richard K Niner (RKNiner) (born June 13th, 1985) is a dog from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He joined the furry fandom in 2004, and regularly draws artwork; most of it features his own fursona. He can be found on LiveJournal, or Serenity Hollows, where he is an administrator. Richard can also be found on IM networks, including AIM, Jabber, MSN, and Yahoo!.


Richard's fursona is an anthropomorphic yellow toller, as depicted to the right. His markings are relatively plain: a solid yellow-orange coat, with a bright yellow belly, brown hair, and bluish-grey nose. Typical clothing, worn under most conditions, include his wireframe glasses, opened blue dress shirt, and khakis, which are replaced with shorts during warmer parts of the year. His feet are plantigrade, and he is normally barepawed throughout the year.


Deadlock, Richard K Niner's piratey alter ego.

In 2007, Richard gave his fursona an alter ego, Deadlock the pirate. The idea was first sketched out in late April, and was fleshed out further, including the design on his flag and modified cutlass, in June.

As a pirate, Richard K Niner's blue shirt is replaced by a green vest, and he wears a red bandanna over his hair. An eyepatch sits between his glasses and right eye, though he explains that the fabric in it is thin enough to see through. Deadlock's cutlass features slots large enough to trap the weapons of his competitors, and he'll readily use it to gain an advantage in any fight.

Despite the existence of this alternate fursona, Richard continues to draw both regularly.

Real life[edit]

In real life, Richard is a coop graduate from the computer science program at the University of Waterloo's Faculty of Mathematics. Most of his work experience, however, was built around web design; as a result of his experience, his home page uses advanced CSS, with a PHP backend.
