Mephitis is a grey muzzle skunk who first encountered the furry fandom in 2000. Since then he has attended many cons in the southeastern US. His skunk fursuit head sports a blue tuff to capture the punk era he never participated in. He has a huge skunk collection of plushies, figurines, and everything else you can make skunks from.

In addition, he has written three academic books and numerous journal articles that he had to create as part of the monetary acquisition process to support con-going.
