Spink is, oddly, among the most un-furry of the major zoophiles. He never showed up at any cons, and never once tried to pass himself off as furry. He's had a few furry friends and associates though.
At first he seemed pretty scary due to his connections and hidden money and apparent cleverness, but the last four years has seen pretty much all of that thrown in the dumpster. He's made mistake after mistake after mistake. He's also pretty toxic among other zoophiles, who have made him something of a pariah. Most of his support network is gone.
The dognapping incident
that got him thrown back in jail is bringing with it state and county charges, which they're probably going to press just so they don't have to deal with him anymore for a few more years.
