Ark, a grey fox/Maine Coon hybrid, serves as the fursona of the system, allowing for exploration and inspiration for a variety of creative, knowledge, and spiritual pursuits. Discovered back in 2004, Ark has evolved from a simple art project into an extensive backstory, mythos, and method of operations that has allowed for strong personal development and self-inspiration to improve both the physical world they inhabit and the relationships shared between folks across various communities.
