Xial Lunashine (J. Hobley) is the current maintainer of The Pixelechoes Network, a tiny site off in the corner of the internet. Xial is a fanatical WordPress user, with several blogs powered by the software installed for various projects.

What is Xial?[edit]

Xial is hermaphrodite vixen, and has been so for several years. Unlike many, Xial is a chubby fur, but not excessively so. Also as a bend of the rules, Xial tends to stick to a more normalized body frame, without the seemingly expected Doug Winger-like proportions that come with the gender bender.

Xial has also been spotted on Tapestries as a female giraffe.

When is Xial?[edit]

Xial was not the only name that this person has used. When Xial first entered fandom airspace, Xial did so as Garnath, in 1998, via the newsgroup alt.fan.dragons. Garnath was originally what could be described as a knockoff of Anne McCaffrey's Pernese dragons.

At the end of 2000, Garnath withdrew from the fandom for a short period of time, for personal reasons. A few months later, he returned as Stormis, a light blue fox, but due to namespace collisions and other reasons, his name soon changed to Xial Araiya Lunashine, which has stuck since.
