Sirius – Security

Sirius is in charge of ID checking, chief sticker/stamp-giver-outer and overall repellent of negative energies! In his con off-time, Sirius is a student at George Brown College in Toronto. He’ll be studying Sign Language. (Sirius is also trans-gendered and prefers to be referred to as he please!)

Ray Maxwell

Ray is a long-standing slash and yaoi addict who started in anime and graduated to western series. He is a yaoi artist, general crafter, gardener, and dumpsterdiver. Having graduated this January from university, Ray has just returned from hitch hiking the west coast and deep south of the United States. Where he goes from here is anybody’s guess, but it sure will involve plenty of slash, some naughty art, and hopefully plenty of wandering.

Ryan – Drag Show

Ryan’s very first panel at Anime North culminated in him being dragged to the front of the room and afterward being told that he was to be on that panel the next year. Ryan is a flamboyant cosplayer who can always be found at con in a new costume. Ryan is also a thespian and loves being onstage.


Kaela uses her clever human guise to hide her kitsune heritage, and was recruited by Gryvon in 2012 as a part-time gatekeeper after the almighty coordinator defeated her in a Cards Against Humanity battle. While not invading Toronto, she sells her soul to Wolfram and Hart. Her hobbies include dabbling in whatever bits of shiny catches her eye, wordsmithing, and releasing the kraken.
