We’ve since mended things, and everything ks quite chill.
Taro came from a little indie game I played, I liked one of the characters names and played off of it. Taro became short for Kotaro, alas Kotaro Akatsuri was made! The identity came before the fursona. I planned long and hard on what I wanted my fursona to be. I drew several different species and posted in freebie forums to see who got the most attention, and my blue rabbit was the most loved. Her original name was Pyrss, a Goddess Blue Lop-Eared Rabbit. She still retains some of those aspects, but is now more of a Non-Binary figure. I have a few others now, but rabbits are absolute specialty, and Taro isn’t Taro without her signature look.
She is my true pride and joy, and represents the best of me.
