If you're unfamiliar with the series, the FFotM is a profile series where I feature one well-recognized figure in the fandom's fursuiting community. In the story I try to offer a unique, "behind the mask" look at their characters, their lives outside of fursuiting, as well as how they came across the furry fandom. As a journalist I love hearing other people's stories and presenting them to you guys!
Went a little outside the box this month with Kiwa Lyon, but he is an awesome guy and a pleasure to interview. And I'm sure if anyone has seen his character at cons, he's not easily forgotten! Kiwa gave me a ton of great quotes and information and I think this is my best "furry" journalism work so far :) Enjoy!
