Wesley Rivers is a no-nonsense individual with a strong disgust for fruitless endeavors. However if you point out how whimsical she can be, she will simply smile and reply: "but with a purpose." Wesley never avoids being brash when it's needed, determined to see herself through her own heart rather than anyone else's. She finds staring into one's own darkness to be very therapeutic and so shies away from stories, movies, or entertainment that hinges too heavily on formulas, trope-ing, or "feel good" material.

Wesley is enthralled with Asian pop culture, expressing her adoration for anime, K-pop and historical Asian folklore on a daily basis. Much of her inspiration comes from the various art forms of these cultures. She adores foxes and often times plays with the idea that she is indeed the reincarnation of a Kitsune (Japanese nine-tailed fox Yokai).

Being part of the community herself, Wesley has strong ties to LGBT advocacy and social activism. She will also be the first to admit that she finds two men engaging in sexual acts to be too stunning for words, never hiding that she hopes to come back in the next life as a gay man "...in a better world of course."

She is a dedicated minimalist, quoted saying... "The hoarding of things is death to all the experience life can offer." Wesley sees no difference between children with fur and children without, having five fur-babies: two cats and three dogs. She believes all life matters and the idea that some matter more is primarily what's wrong with the world.

Wesley Rivers is charmingly cocky beyond reason, willful beyond words, and warm beyond understanding. Loving change for the sake of change, her work spans several genres. She is a spitfire for the ages, but still classy as fuck. Wesley embodies the idea that we don't have to define or identify ourselves with petty human concepts, but instead we can embrace each present moment-the NOW-and just BE.
