MESA Vice-President
Head Chef

Pan-pan, a fluffy panda/goat, has been involved in the fandom since 2000. A home away from home, she finds herself passionately involved in the community. She staffs various conventions, but Wild Nights holds a special place in her heart. When she isn't preparing tasty meals for Wild Nights attendees, she is cooking up some entertainment in the form of improv, stand up, or artwork. While she may run around all chaotic-like, never be afraid to say hello.

Ilari (aka Draklor) is a furry webcomic artist and writer from north Texas. He's been with the fandom for over 6 years, and going to cons for 4. His fursona is that of a fun-loving fox, though his old dragon persona still comes out every now and then. You're most likely to find him helping out wherever he can, and he hopes to see plenty of others doing the same!

Furry Drama Show

Hi I am Draconis, a recovering character Performer. I have been active in the fandom since 2001 and have not been able to quit as every year I have been on staff serving in some role or another. I have worked nearly all parts of any convention Anime, Sci Fi, gaming and up to being a con chair for a couple of years. As a performer and fursuiter I am all about performing outside when ever I can as it makes for a better experience then say hotel conventions where you are somewhat limited in your surroundings. I have been a professional mascot for a local raceway and look to entertain folks whenever I can with either the variety show or performing just by myself. I hope to get a chance to talk to you during the con assuming you read this before the con is over!


Kitchen Staff

Caldaq has been a part of Wild Nights since the beginning of time itself and has been trapped in our Kitchen for most of his life only to be let free as a member at large for 4 years. He has since been recaptured and returned to his natural habitat.

Tamara Rose

Artists' Alley

Before moving to Oklahoma, Tamara worked with law enforcement, and also helped her father at security jobs. When she moved to Oklahoma to be with her mate, she discovered the furry fandom. Oklacon 2006 was her first furry event, and she's been to every one she can manage since! This year, she'll be coordinating the efforts of all the fine people who volunteer at the event. See her if you're willing and able to report for duty!

DJ Lead

Shasta has been with Wild Nights since 2012 and a TFF DJ coordinator since 2017. Bringing sound and lighting design to wild nights for the second year. Lets light it up! He's also staffed large conventions such as MFF and BLFC.


Publications Staff

Most well known as a printer for several different Furry conventions, Keefur is a greymuzzle who discovered the joys of Anthropomorphic art back in 1975 at a Gen Con game con. He became aware of the Fandom and in the short period of time since, has managed to attend many cons and create a fursuit (a Sabertooth Cat named Cutter Cat due to debut at Furry Fiesta 2011). He is easily recognized by his gnarly walking staff and an uncanny resemblance to Wilford Brimley. He is very friendly but quick to turn a phrase or perpetrate a mischievous prank. He won't say exactly where those 100 pink flamingos came from that showed up outside Okidoki Coyote's cabin at the last Oklacon, but we have our suspicions.

Skylor Forscythe

Security Supervisor

Skylor Forscythe has been a member of the fandom for over a decade, having attended dozens of conventions in his time. This, coupled with years of security training and experience, gives him special insight into what it takes to assure the safety and well being of those in attendance in this very special sort of venue. He enjoys jovial conversation, discussions on artwork and sci-fi literature, and has a special love for storm chasing when the season and his schedule permit. Feel free to find him and say hello, as he enjoys making new friends.


Security Staff

Izzy has been a member of the the fandom for nearly ten years, and of the few cons she has attended, Wild Nights is the best of the bunch. When she's not driving big rigs, she enjoys a good movie, book, or just laughing to silly things on the internet. Feel free to come and say hi if you see her, a good conversation, and good friends are always welcome!


First Aid

Scotter is the volunteer Co-Head of Medical during Wild Nights. Other times he is a Plumber that is mostly looking to find food to fuel his existence and is attached at the hips to a gargoyle that shall not be named. If you were to find him out and about, whether he is on duty or off, he is more than willing to chat the time away or even to play a game or two. Food is a wonderful bribe for him as well.


Crafting Coordinator

Zola is a gazelle from North Texas. She is often found in the kitchen helping out or in the Artists Alley drawing or sewing away. Though she has only been in the fandom for a couple of years, she has been volunteering at every con she has attended and has been in the kitchen each year at Wild Nights. She is a bit shy, but she will run to your aid if you need help with anything!

Terrance Jones

Cleanup Coordinator

Originally from the reservation near Topeka, KS, Terrence is a long-time furry fan who has graciously volunteered to spearhead cleanup efforts both during and after the convention. We're always looking for volunteers to help him out with this task as well.
