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.

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!
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.

DJ Shasta has been our lead DJ since 2010 and has brought many great DJs over the years to our event. From his humble beginnings, he now is working with Conventions like Texas Furry Fiesta, RMFC.
Pacer is a fox (though he also has a wolf character and a phoenix character) who lives in Austin. He's been costuming for over a decade and has worked 6 years for a minor league hockey team as their mascot. He also performs for many charity organizations. This year he has again stepped up to help with the fursuit events.
Ipequey is an inflatable werewolf (read as "harmless") from Austin, TX who has been in the furry fandom since 1996. Ever since his early exposure to the furry community using FurryMuck, he knew he found others that were just like him in more ways than he ever thought would be possible. As a result of the open-arm acceptance from the Furry community, Ip (as he's called by friends) is just as happy to help new furs find their footing both in the fandom and with life. Outside of furry, you can find Ip hard at work brewing beer, listening to all styles of music, hosting bad movie nights and eager to spend time with his friends. Inside of furry, you can find him running the Texas Furry Fiesta website, commissioning art & fursuiting for fun, charity and at furry conventions all over the world. He's also known for keeping the general populous of the fandom intoxicated serving both his home brews and original mixed drinks at conventions.
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 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.
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.
My name is Warnndog I've been in the fandom since 1997. I've done some drawing and writing but my real passion is writing. Published a several stories in conbooks which include, "Rocky Mountain Furcon" and "Oklacon".
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!
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.
