Rakuen Growlithe is a South African fur with a background in molecular biology. Although he grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, he later moved to Vienna, Austria to work towards a PhD. He originally discovered the furry fandom through its connection to pokemon and still uses a pokemon as his fursona species.
He developed a love of reading and writing as a child, mostly reading either fantasy or science. He has written many short stories, often fanfiction, on sites like SoFurry but also expanded into non-fiction writing, particularly on Flayrah. Currently, he writes articles for Flayrah and reviews for Furry Book Review in addition to other activities such as running the ZAFur forums and acting as a SoFurry Ambassador.
