Tabber the Red - Welcome!


The Official Site of a Tabby Warrior and other ideas - Established in July 2006

In high school, I created a warrior character based on the red tabby cat I had at the time, unoriginally named 'Tabby'.

I grew up on Greek myths, fairy tales, some Viking lore, and later, other cultural myths/folklore. I watched and read a lot of Sword & Sorcery media, like "Conan the Barbarian" and "Kull the Conquerer". I also enjoyed TV miniseries and documentaries about historical warrior figures such as Shaka Zulu and Erik the Red. Because of these early influences, I developed a world where the nations are peopled by felines.
