Spottacus Cherval (cheetah+serval) at FC 2011

Spottacus Cheetah is an inventor, entrepreneur, physician, biophysicist, and incurable romantic when in human form, and a cheetah or other felid when in true furry form. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is not happy when forced to appear without ears, tail, or when asked not to purr, growl, hiss, bite, pounce, waggle, or lick (inevitably, that leads to some drama[1]).

Contents

Birth and early development

Born on a smoggy day in Southern California, Spottacus has been anthro since birth, slinky in the 90s, and is now furry too. Amazingly, he crawled on all fours well before he learned to walk upright and pretend to be human. He deeply worried his parents by continuing to purr and hiss well after "normal human children" ceased such activities, but his parents grew to accept his furriness, and his mom, sister, and niece have come to watch him at furcon fursuit parades, and his mom even has invited him to accompany her to her parties.

Anthro life

Spottacus is frequently seen in animal form, usually as a large spotticat. He didn't grow fur until late in life, but passed the "how furry are you?" test with 100% positive answers before he was 12. Spottacus' household includes three true feline spotticats, one of which is an African Serval.

Major Characters

Spottacus' fursonas include the following:

Fawxen by DHC having coffee
rawr the Dragon

Minor Characters

There are a number of minor characters, unnamed, which include a cougar, lion, druid, wolf, and hyena.

In Real Life

Spottacus is a physician/inventor. Founding his first company at 13, he has started a number of companies, with multiple products reaching the market in several fields, including by merger/acquisition and public offering. He integrates his anthro life into his real life, and both holds new hire job interviews even at furcons, as well as fursuits to the office. When mundanes (non-furs) describe him, the term "eccentric" probably comes the closest. Think of Tony Stark, but not as arrogant or obscenely wealthy.

Notes

  1. As to the drama, so far the non-furs are fine with it, while some local furs worry that this will reflect badly on the fandom and are NOT fine with his frequently public furry or zentai appearances and even go on twitter rampages or talk about it at restaurants far from home (yes, you were overheard). So, go figure!
