Convention attendance[edit]


Rukis Croax is the creator, writer and illustrator of the Cruelty comic and its sequel Unconditional, and the co-creator, writer and co-illustrator of the Red Lantern comic.

Rukis' first comic, Cruelty, was published by FurPlanet, and debuted at Anthrocon 2010. At 44 pages, Rukis considered this a "practice comic". However, it sold out within the first day of the convention, and Rukis went on to create a sequel (Unconditional).

In 2009 she started Red Lantern. The second volume of the comic, which is planned to be made in four volumes, is currently in writing and is released on Fur Affinity before its printed release which will include sex scenes. The first volume was co-drawn by Alector Fencer, however, she was replaced by Myenia since 2012.

Rukis and Myenia also made a 24-page comic entitled Strong, done in 48 hours only (24 for each) as a challenge.

Other artwork[edit]

In March, 2014, Rukis' adult anthropomorphic art folio Instinct was published by FurPlanet.[5]


Published by Furplanet, Rukis released her first novel titled Heretic in 2013. The book follows Captain Luther, detailing events in the Red Lantern world preceding the first comic volume.

In 2014, Furplanet released her second novel in the Red Lantern world, titled Off the Beaten Path. Due to the length of the story, it was divided into three books (Off the Beaten Path, Lost On Dark Trails, The Long Road Home). This book follows female leopard protagonist Shivah traveling alongside her two male companions (who are close to one another) Ransom and Puquanah.

The third novel set in the Red Lantern world, Legacy was released in 2017, divided into two books (Dusk, Dawn). The book is set before the time of all previous books, twenty years prior to Red Lantern, telling the story of Kadar, father of Amon, the protagonist in the Red Lantern comic series.
