That's pretty Nifty.

N'fiy "Nifty" Tia

CAT DAD
BEWARE OF ANTICS

Nifty would strike most as an unassuming, half-baked old coot looking to get under people's skin. He’s curious and playful to a fault, often earning himself trouble. But beneath the childish, mischievous exterior lies a resourceful, passionate, and perhaps troubled man that runs from his own melancholy by seeking thrills in the unexpected.

He grows older by the day, but remains forever young in his spirit.

Nifty is the shameless author of a selection of questionable literature, ranging between serious and comical, and all salacious in nature. They primarily feature interracial Beast Tribe romances. His more notable titles include "Star-crossed Lizards: An Au Ra and Amalj'aa Liason", "Snogging Sahagin," and "Pounded in the Butt by a Handsome Magitek Exosuit".
