Zorin is an anthropomorphic Canadian Lynx (Felis Lynx Lynx Canadensis). You can see a photo of such a lynx on the front page of Zorin.org. Yes, I realize the irony of playing a Canadian Lynx when I live in Miami, Florida in real life. Deal. }:)
I've used the character Zorin since 1995. I've roleplayed on and off, primarily on FurryMUCK, but sometimes elsewhere too. I'm involved in the furry fandom, but primarily as a consumer of creative material, not a creator.
Zorin's middle name is "the" and his last name is Lynx. Yup, Zorin the Lynx. I kept this style of naming due to my roots, so to speak; my first FurryMUCK character was a 'toon squirrel, and 'toons tend to have names like that. So it stuck. Plus, it's pleasantly silly. :)
Call me Zorin or John, I don't care either way. Either name is just as valid as the other. The advantage of the name "Zorin" is that it's a lot less common a name, and thus more likely to be unique. I've been using it so long that if someone calls it out in real life, I will turn my head just as readily as for my real name!
See this old page for more details. I could write a summary about myself, but if you really want to know more about me, just browse my site. What I do is probably more interesting than who I am. }:)
Here is a compilation of artwork drawn of Zorin the Lynx.
