Rhos

Guest of Honor

Lindsey “Rhos” Burcar is an independent artist/illustrator inspired by all things fantasy and nature, who resides locally here in Milwaukee, WI. Rhos found the furry fandom in 2015 where she fell in love with the crazy creative, fun-loving, welcoming community, and never looked back. Since then she has worked freelance within the community and for the last few years as one of the Fursquared poster artists. She loves long walks in the woods, dragons, bears, dancing in an inflatable dinosaur costume, and flannel!

Axikor

Guest of Honor

Axikor, a warm-weather wyvern from the chilly Midwest, is an avid fursuiter, nature lover, crafter, and aviator. When they aren’t stuffing their friends into a dozen inflatable dinosaur costumes as the self-titled “Dino Czar”, you can find them operating heavy machinery five miles up in the sky, digging into their latest craft or art project, or trying to hide an empty ice cream tub that was completely full mere moments ago.

Inkmaven

Guest of Honor

Inkmaven is a local artist, game designer, performer, and cat mom currently living in Wisconsin. Originally from Minnesota, she has been drawing anthro characters long before she ever frequented the internet, or knew that furry existed. Her professional career in the fandom began in 2012, which was followed several years later by attending cons as an artist. Presently, she designs and sells merchandise at cons full time, including her own line of t-shirts.

Ronnie

Guest

A Chinese Dragon (or noodle dragon) hailing from the frozen lands of Toronto, Canada. He’s just about as noodly as can be: a seasoned dancer, toon artist, convention organizer, panelist, DJ, fursuiter and performer of notable characters such as Tien Long and Zeke Hyena. Whether on big stages at furry cons worldwide or on livestreams, Ronnie always enjoys bringing a smile to everyone and inspiring new talent to grow in the fandom, from dancers to fursuiters and more! When he’s not attending conventions or planning for them, he loves to train in dancing and martial arts, playing with his dog, video games, and trying new foods and drinks. He can’t wait to see the cyber skunks of FurSquared – don’t be shy to say hi!

Uncle Kage

Guest

“Samuel Conway” is a chemist who holds a Ph.D. from Dartmouth and works in a laboratory in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. He is also the chairman of Anthrocon, the world’s largest Furry convention, held annually in Pittsburgh, PA. Known as “Uncle Kage’ to his fans, he is an experienced raconteur who has performed on stage all around the country and even in such far-flung places as Germany, Australia, England and even the Czech Republic. He has been called by some an unofficial spokesperson for the Furry fandom since he has dedicated a good deal of time and energy to dispelling the myths and misconceptions surrounding the world of anthropomorphics. He has published a number of stories in small-press titles, and in anthologies compiled by Mercedes Lackey and Fred Patten. His favorite convention activity is meeting with friends in the bar, and if you’re inclined to ask, he has a preference for semi-dry Rieslings although he’ll always settle for a nice cheap white zinfandel out of a box with a plastic spigot on the bottom.

Boozy Badger

Guest

He is a badger. And a lawyer. And a comedian. And a parent. And a bit of a jerk sometimes. He also owes me five bucks. I’ve heard that he also stands ten feet tall and rides around on a giant plaid oxen named Frank. He once felled an entire forest with a single blow from a blunted butter knife. He’s also not that trustworthy when you ask him to write his own biography.

Foxes & Peppers

Guest

Pepper started performing original music in 2010, forming the band Look Left. After a few years of playing smokey bars and convention stairwells, he left Pennsylvania, becoming a solo guitar guy with a looper. Fur Squared was one of the first fur cons to give the new act a chance, and to great effect. Fox Amoore (aka the fox in foxes and peppers) is a world touring, travel obsessive piano nerd fox. He’s recorded at places from Abbey Road Studios to the basement(s) of Fur Squared, and has released multiple albums of feels music. In 2014 Pepper was recruited as a singer by Fox Amoore and together they began a slow-motion world tour that has landed them everywhere from Singapore to Oklahoma, as well as creating collaborative albums as partners in music crime. Come see why their piano/guitar duo has become a staple at conventions everywhere. Just stay out of the splash zone.

Citrine

Guest

The fandom’s first blind singing husky, he is a multi-instrumentalist, singer & song writer in his mid 20s from central Indiana. Citrine has performed at nearly 30 furry conventions since discovering the fandom in 2013 and has released four albums of original music to date. He also enjoys improv comedy and frequents panels such as “Amateur Hour” & “Whose Lion is it Anyway”. If you have time, be sure to check out this visionary performer. He would be delighted to see you. We promise!
